WHY ARE THERE GLBT STUDENTS
AT RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS?
For the same reason there are
GLBT students in public schools.
Even on the college and
university level, most parents have an active role in selecting or
influencing the decision of which school to attend. Many parents
encourage their kids to attend the same college or university they
attended. Some parents go to great lengths and even threaten financial
isolation if their son or daughter does not attend the school they
Still others sit in church youth groups every week and listen to youth ministers imploring the importance of attending a religious college or university that their church endorses.
It is not uncommon for
youth ministers to extend promises that "God" has the perfect mate
waiting at the church-endorsed college/university.
