A Baptist college boots a sophomore because he wrote about his sexual orientation on his MySpace.com page. I liked this quote from a friend of his:

"I would consider Jason a Christian because so many of his values are Christian. He embodies everything a friend should be. A lot of people are suffering because he is not here."

Notice there's no accusation of actual homosexual conduct. Just a purge of a social undesirable. Discrimination on the lines of Benedict XVI. Just as Jesus would have done.
