The club’s transgression? The Crimson reports that the school’s Office of Student Life placed the group Harvard College Faith and Action on “administrative probation” because the group “pressured a female member . . . to resign in September following her decision to date a woman.”
To be clear: Harvard is disciplining a Christian student group for the group’s expectation that its student leadership follow basic Christian ethical teaching on sexuality in accordance with Christianity’s 2,000-year-old doctrine on such matters. This should not be controversial, at all. Christians believe and do as Christians believe and do. Jews believe and do as Jews believe and do. And so on and so forth. Anyone with even a passing familiarity with Christianity should not be shocked by this.
So Harvard has now taken to disciplining a Christian student group—and not some radical fringe group, but the largest Christian group on campus—for the group’s expectation that its student leadership follow Christian ethical teachings on sexuality. So much for diversity. WEEKLY STANDARD
