LeTourneau University, a Christian university in Texas, has adopted an athletes' handbook that bars athletes from "same-sex dating behaviors and public advocacy for the position that sex outside of a biblically defined marriage is morally acceptable." The handbook's language was revealed by the website Outsports. It is not known if there are any gay athletes at the university. A spokesperson said via email to Inside Higher Ed that "our policy has always reflected who we are as a private Christian university. That’s not new."
