Soulforce Equality Riders

Jim Burroway

April 18th, 2007

Yesterday, we learned about the modification to Brigham Young University’s honor code. BYU officials deny any linkage to Soulforce’s presence on that campus a few weeks ago, although others contend that this visit did at least spark a dialog. Last Friday, the Washington Post published a report on the eastern leg of the Equality Ride’s visit to Patrick Henry College:

A Patrick Henry press release announcing the visit called them a “traveling group of homosexual activists” and “false teachers.” Many of the riders come from evangelical families and attended colleges like the ones they visit. At some point they decided that, despite what their church told them, they could be Christian and gay.

“Listen up, folks,” said Robin Reynolds, who organized the Patrick Henry stop and had gathered everyone for a briefing. … “All Patrick Henry faculty and students must adhere to a worldview that says the Earth was created in six days,” Reynolds began. “The Bush administration loves them so much. As a tiny school they’ve had as many White House interns as Georgetown.”
