Why Is This News?

From Yahoo:
(Reuters) - A small, Christian college in South Carolina said on Friday it had not banned gay students or homosexuality from its campus under its controversial new "Statement on Human Sexuality," which calls the practice sinful.

Erskine College has received scrutiny for its board of trustees' decision last week, characterized by some media outlets as a ban on homosexuality. It comes as many religious organizations seek to respond to the national debate over gay rights and same-sex marriage.

The college, affiliated with the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church,
 held that sexual intimacy is only appropriate between a man and woman who are married.
This is the traditional Christian view of sexuality.  I fear that when Holder talks about relaxing the standard of proof for federal civil rights violations, it will be to go after colleges like this.
