BYU Honor Code statement on sexual orientation

deseretnews.com | BYU Honor Code statement on sexual orientation:

At Brigham Young University, the LDS Church-owned school’s code of conduct directly addresses sexual orientation:

“Brigham Young University will respond to student behavior rather than to feelings or orientation. Students can be enrolled at the University and remain in good Honor Code standing if they maintain a current ecclesiastical endorsement and conduct their lives in a manner consistent with gospel principles and the Honor Code. Advocacy of a homosexual lifestyle (whether implied or explicit) or any behaviors that indicate homosexual conduct, including those not sexual in nature, are inappropriate and violate the Honor Code.”

  1. “or any behaviors that indicate homosexual conduct, including those not sexual in nature, ”

    So what exactly is homosexual conduct that is not sexual in nature? Watching too many musicals?

    What is implied advocacy of a homosexual lifestyle and can heterosexuals be guilty of said implied advocacy?

  2. Too many musicals! LOL! I’m not sure, but hand holding, kissing, cuddling.

    Your second question is intriguing. Implied advocacy of heterosexual lifestyle within marriage is natural and moral. Outside of marriage it is immoral, so in that case they would likewise be guilty it would seem. However, the point in all this is that no student can be a gay rights activist. Do you agree with that much?
