Of course they are "outraged".
Gay marriage might lead to dancing!!!
You know why Baptists prohibit sex while standing up? Someone may see them and think they are dancing.
The Texan is being pollyanna-ish here: "But the role of religion should not supersede (or interfere with) the process of critical thinking, especially at an institution of higher learning."
At an explicitly religious institution? I'd be surprised if they allowed religion to take a back-seat to reason.
"Thou shall not thinkith, especially at a university of higher learning" Sloan 0:00
You know, Jesus said that only a fool would care what anyone at Baylor says or does anyways. He does too say that, right next to where he says Gay sex is bad.
I don't get the Texan's response on this.
Do rational people think that Sloan's position is odious? Well, sure. But rational people don't choose to enroll at ham-fisted religious schools where all sorts of legal adult activity are routinely banned. Baylor is a private school, and they get far freer rein to dictate news content than other schools. I'm sure the student that penned the op-ed was aware of the paper's policies.
So, the Baylor powers-that-be are fundamental Christian dogmatists. In other breaking news, the earth's surface is 2/3 water.
