Some parents with students at Illinois State University want the school to reverse its policy permitting professional staff to engage in unmarried cohabitation in student dormitories.
One father, Greg Myers, says he was outraged to learn that the school’s Student Affairs Office allowed his daughter’s dorm supervisor to cohabitate with his girlfriend in ISU’s Watterson Hall.
Myers’ daughter, a senior at ISU, is a resident assistant in the dorm. Like her father, she objects to the staff cohabitation policy because of her Christian beliefs. The university’s Housing Services office also permits staff members with same-sex romantic partners to live together in student dorms.
In related stories, a group of Muslims is protesting the university’s policy of allowing pork to be served in dorm cafeterias and a group of Mormons wants the university to stop allowing its faculty to drink coffee. Or they could, ya know, mind their own freaking business.
