Quote:Oregon settles with unaccredited university
Portland Business Journal - December 22, 2004

The state of Oregon has settled a lawsuit with a California-based university that involved how the state treats degrees from unaccredited institutions.

Oregon Attorney General Hardy Myers and Kennedy-Western University President Paul Saltman reached an out-of-court settlement of the university's federal district court lawsuit against Myers and Alan Contreras, administrator of the Oregon Student Assistance Commission's Office of Degree Authorization.

KWU, based in Agoura, Calif., filed suit in July 2004 on behalf of three Oregon graduates to challenge a state law that makes it unlawful for a person to represent that he or she has a degree if that degree was granted by an unaccredited university. The lawsuit claimed that the Oregon law violated KWU graduates' constitutional rights by unreasonably restricting their ability to use a lawfully obtained academic credential. Under the settlement agreement, Myers and Contreras agreed that the state would not enforce this statute as long as KWU degree holders disclose their school's nonaccredited status when representing their academic achievement.

The settlement does not require any Oregon employer to accept unaccredited degrees as valid credentials or change the requirements for state employment, professional licensure, college admission or other areas for which a degree from an accredited school is required. Degree holders who fail to disclose that their degrees are from unaccredited schools are still subject to civil and criminal penalties.

In addition, the settlement agreement provides that the Oregon Office of Degree Authorization and Attorney General Myers will make an effort to secure an amendment of the statute during the state's next legislative session that would decriminalize the use of a nonaccredited degree as long as degree holders disclose their schools' nonaccredited status when stating their credentials for business or professional purposes.

According to the terms of the settlement agreement, all issues in the lawsuit will be resolved, and the lawsuit will be dismissed, once the contemplated legislation is passed. If the legislation is not enacted by the end of the 2007 legislative session, the lawsuit will move forward.

Oregon officials are also obligated under the settlement agreement to refrain from characterizing KWU as a "diploma mill." The attorney general's office also agreed to provide ODA personnel with a training session on defamation law.

KWU says it is authorized by the state of Wyoming to offer academic degrees at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral level. The school says it delivers its programs through a combination of online learning and directed study.

DSM-IV used to list homosexuality as a form of "sexual paraphilia"...a "sexual anomaly" if you will. It was right up there with zoophilia, frotteurism, coprophilia, pygmalianism, voyeurism, exhibitionism, et al. The "libtard" lobbyists and special interest groups were instrumental in getting the medical community to toss out homosexuality, some years ago from this diagnostic manual...to appease the socialist queers in San Francisco and "Zoo York". The men, who get their jollies stuffing their "package" into another guys smelly, hairy butt-hole, would love for us to believe that this is "normal" and a valid, healthy expression of human sexuality!... NOT!.... These "libtards" seem to think that indulging in this perversion is socially acceptable...give me a freakin' break! If someone finds what I wrote "gross" or disgusting", or even offensive...it's not! Imagine being the "degenerate" who get's his jollies perpetrating these acts of sexual deviance. The act of "homosexuality" is an "abomination"...pure and simple. That my friend is OFFENSIVE. God made Adam and Eve...not Adam and Steve.

Every man is right in his own eyes, BUT, that doesn't mean that he is RIGHT. It simply means he thinks he's right. The idea of homo as being normal just doesn't agree with my view of the world. I am not aware of any society that has ever prospered by advocating homo as normal. It leads to all sorts of perversion and disease. Some refer to religion as being about understanding and forgiveness, ok, but I have never found one SINGLE word in the bible that says homosexual activity is approved of or that it's another form of normal.

I agree. The word abomination fits.

Actually ancient Greece and Rome had very tolerant views of homosexuality. It also is tolerated to varying degrees in many asian societies and in the South Pacific. Just saying...

I've been to Rome...not Greece. Pagan Rome was debauched in a myriad of ways...in fact Caligula wanted to marry his horse...people in pagan Rome also indulged in zoophilia and a number of other sexual anomalies...as did the ancient Greeks and Babylonians. They also had vomitoriums, which were used after they indulged in too much hippo tongue and ostrich liver...they "ralphed" into the buckets at the vomitorium then resumed "wedging" on exotic fare that would make a billy goat puke! Deviance of this stripe, is found in the good old USof A...you can get married in Maine and Maryland now, and indulge in this perversion with your legal spouse...pretty freaking disgusting... homosexuality was removed from DSM-IV-TR, because of the libtard lobbyists, who had another agenda...mainstream society still does not endorse this repugnant behavior...any guy that gets his jollies stuffing his package in another guys shitter...is one sick twist...nuff said

Sacred Scripture condemns homosexual activity...remember Sodom and Gomorrah?
