Public School District Drops Ties to Gordon College

September 2, 2014

The Lynn, Mass. public school district has ended an 11-year relationship with Gordon College in which the latter sent student volunteers into the schools, The Boston Globe reported. The relationship was ended because Gordon's president, Michael Lindsay, signed a letter to President Obama asserting that an executive order barring federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation in hiring should exempt religious institutions. Like many Christian colleges, Gordon bars students and faculty members from any sex outside of heterosexual marriage.
