University of Dallas on list of least gay-friendly schools in America
Dallas Morning News ^ | August 20, 2012

Posted on 08/27/2012 4:08:37 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

The Princeton Review’s annual lists of most and least gay-friendly universities is out, and Texas is, sadly, well-represented on the “least LGBT friendly” list. (Subscription is required to view the list.) The good news first: SMU dropped out of the top 20, following a No. 12 ranking last year.

One can deduce that emerson won't be getting a Chick-fil-A anytime soon. Perhaps, a statue of Boston's mayor will be erected.

“sadly”?

The MSM’s obsession with homosexuality continues . . .

Wish that liberty university had made that list as well. But I think the bias of the question can be the determining factor here. LU is by far one of the most conservative Christian colleges in the US, however if (I were still a student) and asked that question I would mark the highest for respect for everyone (and I am sure most would as well). We just don’t agree that homosexuality is ok, it is sinful, but respect for the person ABSOLUTELY!@

I think all this survey says is that the studen body at these universities are slightly more ~liberal~ than their actual administrations and rules, history, etc..

What they need is a list of the top 20 schools that don’t give a damn, because they are only interested in money. Moolah. Greenbacks. Simoleons. Benjamins.

They don’t care about education, only money. They’ll tolerate *anything* as long as there is cash involved.

Alcohol? Drugs? Prostitution? As long as they get the bucks from it, their level of “caring” approaches zero.

Take Penn State, for example. They didn’t care that they had a pedophile on their football team staff, as long as it was kept quiet and the football team won. They didn’t care that Michael Mann was another Trofim Lysenko of science fraud, as long as he kept the government grants flowing in.

They would pimp out their own cheerleaders if there was enough money in it for them.

LGBT/LSMFT? What’s in it for us?

Congrats. Seriously mine are no where to be found. Florida State for the Bachelor’s and George Washington for the Masters. However, when I was at both places, I don’t recall any gay crap at all. FSU 91 and GWU 00 so that could be why.....many moons ago now.

I work on the Naval Academy. That is a looker too. I have never been to Pepperdine but I hear good things about the school. Naval Academy may have been on the list years ago before Clinton and Obama got their grips on the place. Although honestly not a peep about gays there either.

Since when should a university embrace Vice? They should discourage all dysfunctional, debasing, dehumanizing, sexist behavior that denies Natural Law and Natural Rights of children to be raised by their biological mother and father.

These homosexual “welcoming” schools are promoting Evil and Vice and Immorality-—something unjust in a country based on the “Rule of Law”-—(Higher Power). Our Justice system is based on God’s Rights, not “rights’ of sodomites to do dysfunctional, disease-causing, unnatural behavior on campus.

To promote such irrationality in a university is jaw-dropping as is adopting any of this “Queer Studies” “Pride in Sodomy” “Women Studies”-—all nonsense and a waste of time-—destroys logic and reason because they all are composed of biological lies and promotion of dysfunctional behavior and a disregard of all scientific truths and historical facts.

We have “tried” homosexual societies-—in Ancient Greece, Samurai, and in Afghanistan today. They are dysfunctional, debasing and inhumane cultures where sexism is rampant, pederasty is normalized since it is learned behavior, and child sacrifice is widely practice (whoops—we already have the ok on that through unconstitutional abortion laws).

JSDude, The tendentiousness of the question jumped right out at me, too. “Students, faculty, and administrators at my school treat all persons equally regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity/expression.”

Normally, people act normally. Civilized people act civilly. That's all.

"Sexual orientation" is something you wouldn't even know about amybody, since it isn't a visible characteristic. That is, unless the person is engaging in constant PDA's or waving around rainbow feather boas.

As far as gender identity/expression goes, that's about the same. Females with boy-cut hair, jeans and Tshirts have been standard for 50 years and it "means" little or nothing about their sexuality; cross-dressers and trannies often look so much like their target category that yhou can'rt tell they're trannies, either.

And unisex/angrogynous has been with us since forever.

My point is, it never becomes an issue unless somebody is in your face about it.

Cathoic schools don’t have students more liberal than faculty. At Notre Dame students are definately more conservative. Church doctrine is all that keeps school policys that on the list. I suspect Boston College is the same.

It’s good to see so many Catholic schools on that list. There are some small schools (Franciscan U Steubenville) that should be on there as well.

Pepperdine is one of those rare universities where you can see people surfing, in the ocean, from your classroom window.

Well, Dallas will be getting more gays, they love how they are disliked, it fuels them, it motivates them to have rallies and shove their lifestyle down as many throats as possible! They are just like the socialists: Obama, Pelosi, and Reid, they don’t cross party lines, they don’t negotiate, the Republicans had better take note and no longer compromise their beliefs for the sake of a few, or this nation will not survive. Look at all the Democrats have achieved in the last few decades: health care, infiltrated the schools and governments, gays in the military, destroying the family unit through divorce, destroying marriage by having gays marry, abortion, and so much more. Romney had better not sing Kumbaya and compromise for the sake of healing a divided nation, the democrat party is no longer what it once was, it’s a socialist, communistic entity that despises both God and country! So, if Romney wins, he had better embrace God and His law and not the law of man!

15. University of Dallas (Irving)

Private and Catholic. I earned my 48-hour MBA there!

The Dallas Morning News is a liberal rag and the only newspaper in Dallas since they bought out the Dallas Times Herald years ago. Suburbs of Dallas are o.k., but inner Dallas is heavily racist and gay.

If Boston College is on the list of “gay unfriendly” schools, then the list is meaningless. “Gay” was everywhere when I was there 20 years ago—including nasty homo-erotic graffiti in every public-restroom that was never cleaned off. The faculty in the school of Arts and Sciences was almost completely hyper-homo-friendly. Unless things have changed for the better since I left (which I doubt)...

University of Dallas is a private *Catholic* university. Reading between the lines, it sounds as if they are guilty of espousing traditional Catholic values. (A good way to check that would be to see if they are also on the least hookup-friendly colleges in America. If so - bingo.)

Christians practicing their values everyday rather than a few hours on Sunday. The horror! The horror!.

The “homo surge” began around 2000. It was a planned effort
on the campuses.
