Grace University: Stand Firm In The Lord, Hold Danielle Powell Accountable For Her Decisions

I’ve read the student handbook from Grace University. This is the same handbook Ms. Powell was required to read prior to attending the university and had full knowledge of prior to attending. Ms. Powell knew what Grace University expected and what the requirements to be part of the student body were. I’ve included an excerpt from page 11 of the Student Handbook:

Sexual Misconduct
Outside of heterosexual marriage, interpersonal sexual activity in all of its forms is sin according to God’s Word. Any student involved in sexually immoral behavior, including premarital sex,adultery, and homosexual acts, is at minimum placed on University Probation and may be subject to a Judiciary Hearing (see pp 18-20).

I would hope that any member of the LGBT community wouldn't feel like life owed them a free pass "just" because they were gay. I myself, am not gay. I don't support the gay lifestyle but I also have enough sin in my own life to know I have no right to judge the temptations and trials another Christian will indure.

As a Christian, I do however, have a responsibility to protect other Christians if they are in need…Phil 2:4, Gal 6:2 & 10. Grace University , Executive Vice President, Michael James may be in need. When he receives the 10k - 20k signatures from Ms. Powell's petition, it will feel like the whole world is against him. But in reality it’s just a drop in the bucket of this town of more than 350MM we like to call the United States of America. Let Michael James know also that there are those who support holding “any” individual to the terms in which they agreed.  Nobody forced Ms. Powell to walk away and we should all find it unfair that anyone other than Ms. Powell should have to bear the burden of her debt.

I believe as Christian’s that someday soon, we will stand before Christ and have to answer the question as to why we did or why we didn’t raise a finger to help another Christian in need. Eph 6:11 tells us we are equipped with the full armor of God so we may stand against the schemes of Satan. Christians!...let’s do battle!!

Sign the petition and let Michael James, Executive Vice President of Grace University know that he’s in our prayers and has our support.

The LGBT community, at the time of this writing, already has 11k signatures. Pass on to everyone you know…

      It is a Christian University and practicing homosexuality is against everything the University stands for. It would be like me being drunk everyday and studying at a Christian College....(I am a recovering alcoholic).

      Transgender people are banned from joining the military. Like the Facebook page: We need as many people as possible to support this cause in order to show the government this is an important cause. "Don't ask don't tell" isn't over yet. The military still discriminates against transgender people. Don't ask don't tell only affected sexual orientation. Gender Dysphoria is now the classification in the DSW medical book so the military has no reason to discriminate based on the fact that a mental health diagnosis can prevent transgender people from serving in the military. Unfortunately, at this time they can prevent transgender people from serving in the United Stated military. Here are some articles about it: The New DADT: The Military's Ban on Transgender Service: and

      My dad always dreamed of me joining the Coast Guard. As a kid, like passing by, he'd be like "[Jason], that’s the Coast Guard. They pay for school and its fun." So, it stuck. Passing by the Coast Guard with my dad was just as important as going to a nature walk with him, because he was concerned about my future, and those times I’ll never forget. Please sign the petition to help his dream and mine for other transgender people come true.

      Grace University is a Christian school that abides by certain principals, one of them being that homosexual relationships are outside of the boundaries they draw in their student handbook. This student knew going into the school that these rules were in place. If she wanted to go to a school that would accept and support her homosexuality , that was her prerogative. A rule is a rule.
