(CHRISTIAN POST) – The president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University is drawing a hard line when it comes to Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. In a letter posted on the college's website in late January, university president Everett Piper said in no uncertain terms that the billionaire businessman will not be invited to speak at his institution.
"Will I be inviting Mr. Trump to Oklahoma Wesleyan University to speak in our chapel service?" writes Piper. "My answer has been simple and brief. No, I will not."
While the university president asserts that "party affiliation and political positions do not matter," personal conduct, public statements, theological integrity and moral consistency do.

"... We choose speakers who generally promote our university's mission and who do not stand in opposition, either in word or deed, to what we claim to hold dear as a Christian community … and frankly, Donald Trump simply doesn't represent OKWU's behavioral, theological, moral or political ideals."
