Texas university bans gay athletes from dating

LAST UPDATED // Thursday, 21 May 2015 08:37

A university in Texas has updated its student athlete handbook so that it now forbids its gay athletes from dating fellow students or from supporting same sex marriage. 

Le Tourneau University - an inter-denominational Christian school in Longview Texas - has revised its student atlete handbook to include an anti-gay policy. The consequences for disobeying the revised policy results in athletes being dismissed from their team.

The updated code of conduct for the athlete booklet reads:

"Consistent with our desire to celebrate and model a Scriptural approach to sexuality; the University prohibits same-sex dating behaviors and public advocacy for the position that sex outside of a biblically-defined marriage is morally acceptable."

According to Out Sports, the university did not include the anti-gay language in its handbook from the 2011-2012 academic year.

Ironically, the five principles of Le Tourneau University are Commitment, Excellence, Integrity, Respect, Community.
