Christian College Blocks LGBT Student Group’s Formation

Point Loma Nazarene University has told students that the “administration will shut down any club centered around sexual orientation that makes it through the club chartering process.” Student Sean Lewis has led an effort to create a group called BridgePointLoma that recognizes LGBT students are “a suffering population” that need spiritual support. Because administrators have now blocked any potential for the club to be created through the standard process, the campus community has launched a petition urging alumni to withhold support until they reconsider. The Church of the Nazarene believes that “the homosexual lifestyle is sinful” and opposes same-sex marriage.
