Jesuit university caves to LGBT activists angry about marriage conference

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – A Jesuit university is siding with LGBT activists against Christians who believe marriage is the union of one man and woman.

An official at Saint Louis University confirmed the school has promised to fund “a program promoting diversity and inclusion” after activists complained it allowed a Christian campus ministry group to host a sexuality conference before classes started this month.

The campus Rainbow Alliance said the “Taboo” conference, organized by the socially conservative Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, was “shockingly offensive” for its orthodox messages about marriage and sexuality. The group issued a list of demands to the administration that included punishing whoever approved the event.

Vice President for Student Development Kent Porterfield implied to The College Fix that marriage traditionalists won’t be allowed to host similar events on campus in the future.  (more...)

  1. St. Michael's College, University of Toronto at its main Office had "gay friendly space" rainbow stickers up years ago. It was an interesting juxtaposition amongst all the portraits of the past clergy.
