Christian school recogonizes first gay student NGO

Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn

Late last week, the provost of Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., announced that the school officially had recognized its first gay student organization.

The announcement came barely a month after the Christian school changed its anti-discrimination policy to include homosexuals, after a popular women’s soccer coach was forced out last December because her lesbian partner was expecting a child.

The gay student group had twice been turned down for official recognition. Belmont Provost Thomas Burns said the change of mind reflected an “ongoing campus dialogue about Christian faith and sexuality.”

The thing is, that dialogue isn’t just limited to Belmont.

Belmont’s policy changes are the latest in a series of incidents at evangelical Christian campuses involving issues surrounding homosexuality. Some observers now wonder whether a major shift in opinions about homosexuality might be occurring among younger evangelicals.

The answer seems to be yes.

My Comment:
As a Christian University, Belmont needed to make a stand, and it failed at that. To treat everyone with respect is the way it should be, but  you can do it without having to change your belief.
Jesus Christ told us homosexuality is a sin, and the bible tells us God’s Word will never change. Since we are living in the end times, more and more claim to be Christians will accept homosexuality as the norm.
1 Timothy 4:1
The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
But this needs repeating. The Word of God is the complete truth.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10

“Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
