Asbury University has a long history of LGBT discrimination, which has not been uncommon for an evangelical Christian institution. Not until recently, that is. More and more colleges and universities similar to Asbury have started reexamining their policies and developing more progressive stances on the acceptance of openly LGBT students and staff.

Asbury has taken the opposite tack of late; going so far as to ask alumni during the Alumni Weekend (which happened to coincide with the Supreme Court decision) to raise an endowment of 100 million dollars in order to circumvent the need for federal funding and continue their practice of discrimination.

You can read about it here (their own publication, sent to alumni.)

Clearly, Asbury is out of-step with not only the times but with many students and alumni. We are asking you to sign this petition to make them aware of that fact, and change their discriminatory policies.
