MALIBU, Calif. (BNc) — Though BNc does not make it a practice to highlight news from liberals and progressives within the church, we deem it instructive at times to note how far the progressive movement often goes when it cuts loose the Bible as the authoritative guide to life.
After some initial uncertainty in the media over the news, it would appear to be official that Pepperdine University now offers, through its undergraduate Seaver College, a scholarship to students who demonstrate “a commitment to promoting the health (mental or physical) and wellness of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) community.”
Read the description of the scholarship on the Pepperdine website in full, from the “Outside Scholarships” page for Financial Assistance:
Vinci and Ellsworthe Scholarship:
The Vinci and Ellsworthe scholarship was established to benefit students who are pursuing a bachelor’s degree at Seaver College. Preference will be given to students whose academic work or personal involvement has demonstrated a commitment to promoting the health (mental or physical) and wellness of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) community. Emphasis will be on actual service, volunteerism, employment, and extracurricular activities. Applications must be submitted no later than July 15, 2013.
Pepperdine has nixed the formation of homosexual student groups (an LGBT Legal Society in the School of Law was approved last year), but apparently has no qualms in accepting monies from outside sources that promote it.
