UT Administrator Fired for Saying Gays Violate God's Divine Order is Hired as HR Head for City in Michigan

Those of you who have been following this site for a while will remember Crystal Dixon. In 2008, I posted about the  then University of Toledo associate vice president of human resources, who was fired after writing an article in the Toledo Free Press in which she said gays "violate God's divine order," and later told reporters at her church that she had a divine mandate to write the column.

Dixon Said Dixon in the article, "As a Black woman ... I take great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are civil rights victims. I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a Black woman. Daily thousands of homosexuals make a life decision to leave the gay lifestyle."

She concluded: "My final and most important point. There is a divine order. God created human kind male and female (Genesis 1:27). God created humans with an inalienable right to choose. There are consequences for each of our choices, including those who violate God's divine order."

Last I heard, Dixon was suing the university, though I'm not sure what the result was.

Anyway, Dixon has been hired to lead a human resources department for the County and City of Jackson, Michigan

Interim county Administrator Adam Brown said Dixon’s level of experience and professionalism put her “head and shoulders” above other candidates...City and county officials said Dixon was up front about her termination from the university. They said her level of professional experience was more important than her political views.

  1. By hiring this bigot, that organisation is sending a sad message.

  2. "I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a Black woman."

    You know, we hear this sort of thing a lot. But is it actually true? I mean, the "tomorrow" part is, but...let me play Devil's advocate for a minute.

    Let's say we took a group of motivated black people, and over a two-year period (comparable in length to an 'ex-gay' program) tried to turn them into 'white people.' With skin bleaching, plastic surgery,etc. etc. you could actually get many African-Americans to look, sound, and act like white people (whatever that means, just humor me). Truly motivated people might even say "I'm not black anymore. I'm white now." They could walk down the street and nobody would ever doubt they were white.

    But would they REALLY be white? If you say "yes, they became white" then you can't argue that race can't be changed. If you say "no, they're still black" even though no one can tell and the person in question says they are NOT black...well, then you can't really argue that gays can 'become' straight with any certainty, no matter how straight they appear or say they are.

  4. People who think being gay is a choice are gay or bisexual and are choosing not to act on it.

    People who use the argument that black people and other races cant wake up tomorrow and be white WISH THEY COULD; that is why I am different from them, my desire NOT to stop being what I am even if another way would be easier.
