The Least Impressive Possible Gesture Towards Gay Rights

Baylor is a Christian University, in Texas, with a student handbook banning "homosexual acts." That's three strikes against gay people already. But times are changing. Baylor may soon take a major step towards gay rights, by Baylor standards.

Gay culture will doubtless begin flourishing on Baylor's campus any moment now if this proposed student government resolution to change the school's code of conduct goes through. Inside Higher Ed reports on how to welcome diversity, Texas style (bolding ours):

The resolution would not change the base of the university policy on sexuality: "Human sexuality is a gift from the creator God and ... the purposes of this gift include (1) the procreation of human life and (2) the uniting and strengthening of the marital bond in self-giving love. These purposes are to be achieved through heterosexual relationships within marriage." But it would change the next part of the policy, which currently states: "Misuses of God's gift will be understood to include, but not be limited to, sexual abuse, sexual harassment, sexual assault, incest, adultery, fornication and homosexual acts." By replacing "homosexual acts" with "deviate sexual intercourse," Garza said, there would be less stigma facing gay people on campus.

Super.
