Baylor Student President Vetoes Proposal to Remove 'Homosexual Acts' from 'Sexual Misconduct Code'

Last week we reported that Baylor University's Student Senate voted to pass the Sexual Misconduct Code Non-Discrimination Act, which would remove "homosexual acts" from the Waco, Texas Christian school's "sexual misconduct code".

HodgesThe Student Body President vetoed that decision on Thursday, the Waco Tribune reports:

Student Body President Wesley Hodges told the Student Senate Thursday that the university’s board of regents likely would not have granted final approval for the change to the policy, especially because the full student body had not had a chance to weigh in on the topic.

The senate did not achieve a two-thirds majority to override the veto during a vote in a closed session...

...“I truly believe that Baylor treats its students with grace, love and truth, and in doing that seeks to accept all students, but does not affirm all student behaviors,” Hodges said. “Simply because the university disagrees with your actions or lifestyle, does not imply that it is seeking to attack you.”

  3. many girls from my Missouri hometown went to college at Baylor. Even they said "most of the guys at Baylor were gay and that the line between an effeminate homosexual and a pale white christian male was very blurred." Also they noted that basketball and football players there didn't have to adhere to any code of sexual ethics -- especially after Ken Starr arrived (and Baylor's teams got remarkably better).

  4. I personally know more gay graduates of Baylor University than any other school. Homosexual acts are a well-established, longstanding , and widely observed tradition on that Waco campus. The cognitive dissonance in the administration and among some members of the student body on this is palpable.

  5. If someone voluntarily decides to attend college at such a stupid institution, they deserve what they get. The people I worry about are those who are forced to go there by parents or others. I can't imagine a fate worse than being surrounded by self-righteous Southern Baptist bigots and ignoramuses.

  6. We'll remember this, Wesley.

    When the university tries to come between you and your beloved doughnuts, don't expect us to come to your aid. Fatty.

  8. Mr. Hodges, do you affirm premarital sex? Because that's not forbidden in your sexual conduct code.

  9. Just a young kid with no experience with life and people. He needs to grow up and to learn some maturity.

  11. Georgetown is in DC and DC has laws against anti-gay discrimination and DC has the most number of rights for gay people in most any area in the USA. Vermont is the other area with the most number of rights for gay people in the USA. In DC, you cannot lawfully discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation in hiring and firing. Georgetown is not Baptist, it's Catholic but it does not practice discrimination against gay people.And I don't plan to live any farther south than in the Maryland suburbs of DC. No Texas for me.
