The College Fix reported the following:

Several top Christian universities have no plans to change campus policies in the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide, campus officials have told The College Fix.

The statements come on the heels of the Obergefell v. Hodges verdict, and curiosity is circling as to how the decision will affect American society, particularly religious-affiliated institutions. Some fear Christian colleges will lose their tax-exempt status unless they allow homosexuality within campus policies.

But Massachusetts-based Gordon College, Southern California’s Azusa Pacific University and Illinois-based Wheaton College will not make any changes to campus policies, even as those anxieties loom, their officials confirmed.

LaTonya Taylor, director of media relations for Wheaton College, said in an email to The College Fix that the school “believes that it continues to have legal authority to enforce biblically based conduct standards for its employees.”
