Fans Express Disapproval
College basketball fans are expressing their disapproval towards Oak Hills Christian College for its history regarding LGBT issues. The school’s “LGBT prohibition” passage on its Wikipedia page has been brought to light, and fans are criticizing the Bison for not pushing harder against the institution.
Oak Hills Christian College has been accused of being a homophobic institution that discriminates against homosexual students. The school was granted a Title IX exemption to allow for this discrimination, which has sparked outrage among fans.
Call for More Action
Some fans have even gone so far as to suggest that the Bison should have “kept the pedal to the metal” and run up the score against Oak Hills Christian College. They argue that a more significant defeat would have been fitting for an institution with such discriminatory policies.
School’s Position on Human Sexuality and Gender Identity
Oak Hills Christian College has a clearly stated position on human sexuality and gender identity. The school upholds the belief that marriage is a union between a biological man and a biological woman, and that all sexual relations outside of marriage as defined by this belief are considered sinful.
The school further affirms that while our experience of sex and gender may not always align with God’s original design, God has the power to heal and transform our brokenness. Oak Hills does not support the resolution of tension between one’s biological sex and gender through adopting a discordant psychological identity or through medical intervention to change one’s biological sex.
Love and Compassion
Despite their conservative stance on these issues, the school claims their obligation is to love all individuals and engage in dialogue with others. They seek to embody the gentle and patient love of Christ while maintaining their community standards for biblical living.
These policies have implications for student admission and retention, housing, employment hiring and retention, and other related matters at Oak Hills Christian College.
As the conversation continues, college basketball fans are bringing attention to the school’s stance on LGBT issues and expressing their dissatisfaction with the institution.
