The student president of Georgetown University Pride, a student homosexual club, participated in a segment on the Huffington Post Live earlier this month where he boasted about Georgetown's laissez faire position on sex and homosexuality, putting down other more traditional Christian institutions that hold their students to Christian moral standards.
Last year, when the New York Times labeled Georgetown a “gay friendly campus,” the same student declared, “Every month is a good month to be gay at Georgetown.”
The story at The Huffington Post Live was done in light of Baylor University’s student government proposal to replace a ban on homosexual activities with a ban on any sex outside of marriage. The liberal website gathered students from several religiously affiliated colleges to discuss rules about sex on campus, including students from Baylor and Brigham Young University.
Georgetown University Pride President Thomas Lloyd said that there are no rules about consensual sex on campus at Georgetown. He said the reason is that “they don’t want to impose their values” on students.
He credited the Jesuit University with having “grown greatly in the last five years on issues such as queer inclusion and women’s issues.”
