Baylor University, the world’s largest Baptist university, has removed the ban on “homosexual acts” from its sexual conduct policy.
The school, which was ranked among the 20 most LGBT-unfriendly by the Princeton Review in 2014 quietly changed its policy on May 15, a university spokeswoman said on Tuesday.
“These changes were made because we didn’t believe the language reflected Baylor’s caring community. We are pleased with the recent changes to the policy language and that it states more plainly the expectations of the university,” Lori Fogleman said in a statement.
The university — the oldest one in Texas — has a history of being apparently reluctant to change. It didn’t lift a ban on dancing until the 1990s and still sites the sexual conduct policy of the Southern Baptist doctrine that specifies marriage as a man and a woman in a lifetime commitment,
Baylor’s previous policy deemed gay sex a “misuse of God’s gift,” along with incest, adultery, sexual harassment, sexual abuse, and sexual assault.
In 2005 Bayylor booted gay alumnus Tim Smith from its Advisory Board just for being gay and attempted to offer a course in the Spring 2122 called “Homosexuality As A Gateway Drug”. That is until people found out about it and then the course name was quietly changed to “Family Studies”.

From Ray Comfort http://www.AudacityMovie.com
How do you answer this question (asked by homosexuals who believe that they were born with same sex preference): “Did you choose to be a heterosexual?”
It’s important not to answer this question with a Yes or a No. This is because it’s loaded, similar to “Do you still beat up your mother? Yes or No.”
Their question equates heterosexuality with homosexuality, when the Bible does no such thing.
Instead of a Yes or No, point to 1Corinthians 6:9-10:
“Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterous nor homosexuals…will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Explain that each of these practices are sins in God’s eyes, and they are sins that we choose. We choose to be a fornicator, or to be an adulterer, and we choose to be a homosexual.
Then take the person through the Ten Commandments to show him that he’s in big trouble on Judgment Day, despite his sexual preference.July 9, 2015 at 11:10 am #12175VitalogyParticipant

Like my old pastor used to say “People believe what they are taught.” For years people believed smoking was not bad, because of the line of garbage from the tobacco companies. People are now learning the truth that people are born homosexual. I have always believed that when most people learn the truth, they believe it. Even the South is changing. They have a long way to go, but at least they are moving in the right direction. Thanks the Lord I live in Oregon.July 9, 2015 at 10:58 pm #12198

“Do you still beat up your mother? Yes or No.”
We don’t care about your mother. We care about your kids (God help them) and your wife (divorce is an option ma’am). Do you beat them? Yes or no.July 10, 2015 at 8:36 am #12204

Broadway, if every devout Christian businessperson were fully aware of the “ungodly” ways their products or services were being used by their customers, they wouldn’t be able to sell anything to anyone.
The fundimentalization of Christianity in this country is going to ruin the faith – and being that Christianity is our predominant religion, it’s pulling down the country with it.July 10, 2015 at 9:59 am #12208missing_kskdParticipant
