Well, to be fair, heterosexuality is probably forbidden on campus as well. Except in the bedrooms among married couples.

I don't understand why anyone would ever go to a "Christian" college in the first place.

Also, hasn't every single "anti-gay" person been found with a 20 year old rent boy???

Or you could just not attend their school.

Why would you want to go to pedophile college anyways?

It's a private school, Stop trying to force your agenda on them! If you want to be gay do it where it's accepted.

this isn't public gov't funded transportation, it's a private college. They can disallow anyone they choose.

Kind of answered your own question there, no?

Since they're a private college, that is indeed the case. However, it then becomes the job of a multitude of others to continually highlight their promotion of prejudice under a cloak of righteousness.

That's incorrect unfortunately.

Sure younger white people don't care, but that demographic is destined to lose its majority status within a few years. The white ideal of multiculturalism means accommodating alternative view points... Now consider that the young hispanic, black and Muslim populations are booming and all are far more socially conservative than young whites, especially on hating teh ghey (as we witnessed in California when black democrats betrayed the liberals that bent over backwards for the black community yet voted to deny equal rights for gays.)

We'll likely see the gay rights movement hit an impasse or even set back if we don't make significant progress now on establishing gay marriage now.

This is true. The rule was that unmarried men and women had to remain a "bible's width apart at all times"

I find the fact that the ban includes a ban on "advocacy" very disturbing. Apparently demanding a denial of basic reality wasn't enough for these loons; they actually go so far as to censor the speech of people who disagree with their warped views within their own community.

Ok, I just have to say (again):

I still don't really understand why people are against homosexuality. It just doesn't make any sense to me. So some guy wants to bone another guy, so what? Better yet, some girl wants to scissor another girl, so what?

I still think many people opposed to homosexuality are gays themselves. Why else would they feel so threatened by it?

Discuss?

beoswulf: Muslim populations are booming


Yeah they're about to hit 0.7% of the population of America. Astronomical.

As for the Blacks and Hispanics, I have yet to see evidence that suggests they are less understanding of the gay community than whites are. Feel free to provide some.

Because GOD SAID SO!!!!!!

Just like God said abortion is wrong, sex is bad generally, and coloreds exist to hew wood and draw water.

As he should have. As wrong as it was slavery was still legal in some states back then and the reality of the times was that the Constitution did NOT apply to everyone equally. One downside of our legal system is that sometimes bad laws have to be enforced until they can be changed. We are, after all, a growing nation and still learning as we go along.

35-40 years for total population, the youth population is already far more diverse.

god also said to go out and kill or enslave your neighbors if they do not believe in god! He also said that when you did this that it was OK to rape the women that you find!

Well, I don't know about "everyone" of them, I don't follow too many conservative religious people's lives, but I do know many of them have been outed.

In my opinion, let the gays be gay. I have known many gay people of both sexes, and they are simply people that want to live the lives that make them happy.

Educational institutions of other religions that have the same or similar standards are OK though, right?

Brilliant! Just like the below league has the same right to "their house, their rules"

"Three bisexual men are suing a national gay-athletic organization, saying they were discriminated against during the Gay Softball World Series held in the Seattle area two years ago.

The three Bay Area men say the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance in essence deemed them not gay enough to participate in the series."

I think it's pretty clear at this point that most everybody who devotes any significant portion of their life to fighting against gay rights is most likely gay, or at least bi, themselves.

I just can't imagine that level of self loathing, it has to be like creating your own personal hell here on earth.
