Episode 53: Should LGBTQ+ faculty and students (and those who affirm them) have a place and a voice at Abilene Christian University?


We continue The Christian Chronicle’s in-depth coverage of how a “Holy Sexuality” chapel program at Abilene Christian University motivated alumni to petition the university’s administration to change its policies and position on same-sex relationships.
