    Actually, the “list of six people who should be banned from evangelicalism” was written by Tylor Standley.

    Attitudes toward gays and lesbians “are changing” at BYU, are they? A typical example of misleading pro-religion spin at RNS.

    The very article you link to notes that this has been the policy since 2007. 2007! But Proposition 8 was on the ballot in 2008, meaning that this policy–which you posit as a sign that Mormons are becoming more accepting of homosexuality–actually predates the Mormon establishment’s illegal involvement in the Proposition 8 campaign.

    Aside from the timing issue, I am not convinced that a policy of “We cannot read your mind so we will not expel you for being gay until you actually act on it” is all that indicative of an enlightened view on homosexuality.

    You raise excellent points. Thank you for writing in. I didn’t quite see it that way, but you’ve convinced me I was wrong.

    Corrected. Thank you so much.
