“Queer students are just as able to have romanticized relationships that abide by APU’s rules. The code used falsely assumed that same-sex romances always involved sexual behavior. This stigmatization causes harm to our community, especially those serious about their Christian faith.”
(Paul Bios – Daily Wire) After LGBTQ activists demanded that prominent Christian college Azusa Pacific University (APU) remove its ban on homosexual relationships on campus, the university has finally caved and reversed its longstanding policy.
According to Zunews, APU has stripped language from its student standard of conduct agreement that “prohibited public LGBTQ+ relationships for students on campus” while still professing to adhere to a Biblical interpretation of human sexuality.
“This change is a result of much dialogue between students and administration,” reports the outlet. “For years, LGBTQ+ students at APU have run an underground support group called Haven. However, because they weren’t endorsed by APU as an official club, they couldn’t gather on campus or advertise their meetings.”
