Public universities and colleges are not allowed to discriminate against anyone for race, religion, gender, disability, or sexual orientation. Private schools are allowed to. Some private colleges and universities are banned from accepting federal student aid, though. Hillsdale College is one of them, although in their case it is also by choice. Bob Jones was denied using federal money at one point in the 80s because they forbid interracial dating.
I had high school friends who chose to go to Wheaton or Liberty. Both schools have a very strict student code of conduct-not just the ban on gays, but also R rated movies, rock music, books of an unseemly nature and so on. Virtually all college students are legal adults, over the age of 18. If someone chooses to go to such a school, it is his or her choice.
As for me, I chose a second-tier NCAA school that at the time was the second biggest party school in Michigan (WMU-Wasted Michigan University-Go Broncos!). Nobody really cared what we did, until someone needed her stomach pumped or something.
I love the search box. I can come back at any time, enter my name, and see what pops up. lol.
As a Christian university, I can understand not wanting a lesbian to attend. I don't agree, but I can understand. Personally, I think it would be showing real Christian grace if they didn't demand the money back (sort of suggesting she knew all along she was a lesbian, which the student says that's not the case) and transferring her transcript. I think this is different from boy scouts because everybody involved is an adult. It's different from church because it's a school. It's not the same at all.
