'Gay agenda' dances into Liberty University's artistic mission; good job, team

by Jeremy Hooper

Liberty University's Alluvion Stage Company list one of its key objectives as being "To uphold and execute the mission of Liberty University through theatrical arts." So it is interesting to see that this school, which has a decidedly and undeniably anti-LGBT mission, is ticking off evangelical news sites for apparently bringing a gay man and his vision into the mission fold :

LYNCHBURG, Va. – Liberty University, considered the world’s largest Christian university, has hired an open homosexual advocate to choreograph its upcoming Broadway-style presentation of Mary Poppins.

The university recently published an article regarding the production, which it celebrates as being the school’s “largest to date.” The article notes that Alluvion Stage Company, an arm of the university’s Department of Theater Arts, “has hired a guest music director, a flight director, and a Broadway choreographer” to assist with the presentation.

Should the choreographer, Geoffrey Goldberg, use his skills at such an actively anti-LGBT school? I wouldn't. But that's just me.

The more striking point for me here is how willing these anti-LGBT people and places are to use us for our talents. When it comes to creativity, design, planning, technology, and all kinds of visionary things, people who fight against us and vote against us will gladly lap up the fruits of our labor. But when it comes to actually respecting the fact that perhaps we are created to be on this Earth for a special purpose, as we are, they are like, "screw that." Or "don't screw that," more precisely.

I'm actually quite curious to see if this will tick off the usual anti-LGBT crowd.
