SAME-SEX RELATIONSHIP: Christian university rescindes graduate student’s admission because he is in same-sex relationship [#UnionUniversity #AlexDuron #SameSex] 07/29
A Christian university affiliated with the Tennessee Baptist Convention has garnered controversy over rescinding a graduate student’s admission because he is in a same-sex relationship.
Alex Duron posted a letter he received from Union University on Facebook last week, noting that his admission to a nursing program was rescinded because he was found in violation of the school’s Community Values Statements for Graduate and Non-Traditional Programs.
Alex Duron denounced the decision of Union as “Bigotry, Prejudice, Heterosexism, Homophobia” and took issue with the fact that the university receives federal funding.
“Union University may not be right for me. I can accept that, but I cannot accept that our government is giving them the money to discriminate against me.”
– Alex Duron
“Friends understand that I am doing fine and I have moved on from this. I have strong support all around me and I know my worth. Continuing to push forward but recognizing that gay discrimination lies all around us.”
Union University explained that it has “standards of behavior” for students and faculty “that are consistent with biblical teaching and historic, orthodox Christian practice.”
“We love our students and want them to thrive and succeed, and we believe that a standard of conduct that honors God and submits to his authority is an important part of that success.”
“All students who apply to Union University sign a statement saying they will comply with the university’s values. Those students who fail to abide by those values — or who show no intention of attempting to do so — are subject to disciplinary measures that can include dismissal from the university.”
