Promoting healthy families through blackmail

Salon's Broadsheet reports that under a proposed policy, employees at Oklahoma Christian University who file for divorce would face more than the usual divorce-related financial woes:

The university has reportedly proposed a policy that would let higher-ups fire employees who get divorced. By way of explanation, university brass sent a letter to faculty saying, "Because the Christian mission of the university is most effectively fulfilled through mentoring and example, all married faculty and staff should strive to model (healthy) marriages to students."
Ever actually hang out with a married couple who really didn't want to be married any more?

Yeah, that would be my role model.
