    From Crosswalk enews this morning:


    Gay or Straight? Check Yes or No


    This year, Chicago's Elmhurst College became the first in the nation to add a question about sexual orientation on its 2012-13 admission application, WORLD News Service reports. The private college, affiliated with the United Church of Christ -- a denomination that endorsed same-sex marriage in 2005, asks students, "Would you consider yourself a member of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community?" If students answer yes, they are eligible for a diversity scholarship totaling up to one-third the cost of tuition. Gary Rold, Elmhurst's dean of admissions, said, "I thought from the recruitment standpoint we might be more proactive [in attracting gay students]." But will heterosexual students facing loan burdens "be compelled to consider 'broader' sexual horizons?" asks Nathan Harden of National Review. He says it's absurd that a school "that knocks one-third off the sticker price of 'an education' because of sexual orientation [is] effectively doling out tens of thousands of dollars on the basis of students' bedroom behavior."

    This is a really dumb idea. The only logical conclusion is that it will become an all gay bankrupt college.

    Gives the term "party school" a whole new meaning.

    I presume since they are a private college and assuming they do not accept federal funds, they can set whatever criteria they desire for admittance and financial aid.

    If Veterans use the GI bill, that possibly could be considered recieving federal funds - not sure if that is the case, but still could be.

    The median income of homosexuals is higher than the national median.

    That may or may not be true, but what is true is gdy couples have more disposable income.
