Under the Dome

Christian Action League opposes gender-neutral university housing

The N.C. Christian Action League objects to the UNC-Chapel Hill trustees' decision last week to allow male and female students to share dorm suites and canpus apartments, saying it would be a special privelidge for gay, lesbian and transgender students.

The policy was adopted after students said they were made to feel uncomforable in their suites or dorm rooms because of their sexual orientation.

An article in the Christian Action League newsletter quotes the Rev. Mark Creech, the group's executive director,  saying that gender neutral housing amounted to special protections for people who choose alternative lifestyles, and was costly to the larger society.

Tami Fitzgerald, director of the N.C. Values Coalition, said readers should urge trustees to change their minds.

"The UNC Board of Trustees is bending over backward to please the homosexual lobby - a group that represents only about 3 percent of the population - without regard for the consequences..." she told the Christian Action League. "To make matters worse, our tax dollars subsidize the University of North Carolina system."
