Homosexual activists are once again up in arms over a Christian university’s rejection of an “LGBT” [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender] club. In this case, Pepperdine University, a California liberal arts institution affiliated with the conservative Church of Christ denomination, announced in January that it would not allow the homosexual support group Reach OUT to meet on the college’s campus.
According to the Sacramento Bee, the school’s dean of students, Mark Davis, explained that the club’s mission did not line up with the university’s belief that sexual relations should be limited to a man and woman who are married to one another.
“Pepperdine seeks to be faithful to this teaching because we believe it is God’s will,” Davis told the university’s student newspaper, the Pepperdine Graphic, “and therefore we cannot endorse another view or take a neutral position on sexual morality. Although Reach OUT stated in its application that it has no position on sexual activity, we do not believe it is possible for a LGBT student organization to maintain a neutral position.”
The Pepperdine website states that the school is “a Christian university committed to the highest standards of academic excellence and Christian values, where students are strengthened for lives of purpose, service, and leadership.”
