Every single person interviewed for a story about a secret gay club at Biola University, a private California evangelical school, said they wanted to open a dialogue about the university's relationship with its gay students, but nobody can figure out how to get that conversation started.
According to MSNBC.com's John Boxley and Ashley Bornancin, the students in the Biola Queer Underground say if they reveal their identities they'll be expelled, and college administrators say they can't talk to the students because they don't know who they are. The college's handbook calls for "disciplinary action" against those who violate its policies on sexuality, including a ban on same-sex relations.
Administrator Chris Grace said the college would "love and welcome a conversation with them" but it doesn't know who to talk to. Meanwhile, members of BQU "are looking to have an open discussion about what it means to be Christian and gay," wrote MSNBC.com's Boxley and Bornancin. Grace said "you'd almost call that a myth that students would get expelled" for being gay. But he also said they would expel someone who came out and was "unwilling to uphold our community standards," which basically means trying to change their sexuality.
