PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif., is one of the first evangelical seminaries in the nation to approve an official student organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.
Its decision not to oppose the LGBT club is creating ripples in the larger world of Christian colleges. Attempts to start gay student groups at some other Christian colleges in the U.S. have been met with censorship or outright bans.
Though Fuller’s approval is seen by many as progress, some don’t like the conditions that come with it. School policy states that students can “come out,” but they must remain celibate and are not allowed to be politically active.
Students said they are aware of the LGBT group’s limitations, and choose to accept them.
