From President Gary Peluso-Verdend: I call on all clergy in Oklahoma to withdraw their participation in and support for the chaplaincy program in the Oklahoma House. Boycott it, at least until the discrimination and un-American gaming of religion by the state is stopped and the program fixed. But maybe it is better to let the program die.

One of the (potentially) great things about many religious traditions is the understanding that each human being is created in the image of God and should be accorded respect and dignity, no matter how badly one seeks to efface God’s image (the Imago Dei) in oneself through one’s actions. To discriminate and judge another as “lesser than” based on demographics is un-Christian, and against the teachings of many religions.
Phillips Theological Seminary offers Christian graduate theological education
in service of intelligent, just, and compassionate religious and civic communities. We welcome
students to a safe space for truth-seeking conversations about the Bible, Jesus, and faithful living.
Courses available on campus and online for certificate, diploma, MDiv, MAMC, MASJ, & MTS
programs, and on campus for the DMin program.
