Hope College Will Continue Fighting to Keep Gay Sex Off Its Campus

Hope College, the $25,000-a-year Christian-y Michigan college that nixed a visit from Dustin Lance Black to screen Milk, is sticking by its stance on homosexuality: Eww, gross.

If you couldn’t tell from Black’s meeting with Richard Frost, Hope’s dean, the administration is one big hot bed of fearing “the others.” And they’re keeping it that way.

Hope College won’t remove a policy on homosexuality and won’t change its administrative decision-making process, but may eventually amend the policy in a committee, according to a statement released by the college on Friday. Alumni, student, and community groups in a coordinated effort each had petitioned the board of trustees to drop a 1995 policy on homosexuality that condemns homosexual acts and gay advocacy, but supports “fair and kind treatment for people with a homosexual orientation” and the academic discussion of issues related to homosexuality.

So long as “academic discussion” does not involve “inviting famous homosexuals on campus to discuss the problems with homophobia.”

      Good luck with that!! I did half my hallmates in my dorm, first time away from Mommy and Daddy sleeping in the next room really allows for the curiosity factor being acted on………..

      I know exactly two people who went to Hope and they are both lesbians. I think it’s time for the college to rethink its policies.

      Every institution on earth has “policies” and most are bent or ignored when a higher up desires or if it is expedient etc. – I deal with that almost every day on my job. But a policy on sexuality? A college, one would hope, keeps up with, well, learning and stuff…data…things like that.

      So I hope they’re aware the “policy” didn’t stop anyone from being Gay or doing Gay things in their own dorm rooms and that this said policy only makes them look sad that they have to try to belittle and demean Gay people.

      Haha, Sufjan Stevens is a graduate of Hope. I see a theme of repressed ‘mosexuality.
