Brigham Young University (BYU) dropped a section of their code of conduct concerning LGBTQ realtionships within the student body. This section banned “all forms of physical intimacy that give expression to homosexual feelings.”
Many on campus who identify as LGBTQ were celebrating the occasion. Yet, as probably should have been expected, the dropping of this section was not meant to allow same sex relationships on campus.
BYU clarified in a letter on Wednesday saying, “same-sex romantic behavior cannot lead to eternal marriage and is therefore not compatible with the principles included in the Honor Code.”
Despite BYU students knowing full well (probably before they ever applied) that the Universtity is an explicitly Mormon institution, LGBTQ students and those who support them were outraged.
Many students protested the lack of reversal of the longstanding policy.
Addison Jenkins said BYU “does not care…about queer people.” Another student, Tiauna Lomax, objected to the Univerisity’s clarification saying, “I thought BYU cared about me.”
Some students held signs at the protest expressing similar grievances. One sign said, “Love One Another,” presumably referencing to the bible verse John 13:34-35. Another sign said, “love means love,” a common LGBTQ pride slogan.
Additionally, students who showed up to object to the protesting of the schools policy were shouted down. The protesters used chants like “Love, not hate, will make BYU great!” to keep the counter protesters from being heard.
The idea that BYU hates LGBTQ students, or that the school is being unloving or uncaring, is not in-line with the Unversity’s stated intent. In fact, the University has encouaged the exact opposite of hate towards LGBTQ students.
In a question and answer session about the clarification letter, Kevin Utt (director of BYU’s Honor Code Office) said,
“We realize that emotions over the last two weeks cover the spectrum and that some have and will continue to feel isolation and pain. We encourage all members of our campus community to reach out to those who are personally affected with sensitivity, love and respect.”
BYU is a private instution whose code of conduct is directly tied to the Church of Latter Day Saints’ (the Mormon church). This means that it is a private, religious institution.
Therefore, the University is clearly protected by the first amendment. They don’t neccessarily need to worry about a legal case being made against them.
Even without the threat of a legal case, though, students have insisted that the school hates gays. This assumption of hate has obviously not gone well for them in the press.
Mexican Government Reported that Nearly 80,000 People are Still Missing
Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty
According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.
This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.
Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.
Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.
Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September.
Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.
Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.
Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.
Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
