The Dissenter has documented the leftward drift of the popular Reformed Calvin University over the years. Calvin University (formerly Calvin College) is home to a number of student organizations, one of which is Sexuality and Gender Awareness (SAGA).

Calvin University is part of the Christian Reformed Church denomination—a full-fledged liberal denomination that boasts inclusivity and progressivism throughout its layers of organizational structure.

The group boasts that it is “a peer education group of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, plus (LGBT+), and straight students who support each other and educate the campus” and holds yearly events including LGBT workshops in the dorms, “You are Loved Campaign,” and “various speakers on topics connected to sexuality and gender.”

Just this year, one Calvin professor argued that abortions should remain legal and another professor officiated a gay wedding.

In a surprising move at their synod earlier this week in Grand Rapids, MI, the denomination voted 123-53 to codify homosexual sex as “sin” into their confession of faith. After two days of deliberation, the voters approved a list of “sexual immorality” that the denomination will not tolerate, including “adultery, premarital sex, extra-marital sex, polyamory, pornography, and homosexual sex.”

“The church must warn its members that those who refuse to repent of these sins—as well as of idolatry, greed, and other such sins—will not inherit the kingdom of God,” the report reads. “It must discipline those who refuse to repent of such sins for the sake of their souls.”

“While there was easy agreement about some topics such as pornography, LGBTQ+ issues were much more divisive,” Kristen Vanderberg, a spokesperson for the CRC, said in a statement to FOX 17 on Tuesday. “Today, Synod voted to strengthen its position on human sexuality by acknowledging that this position is taught in its confessional statements of faith. The implications for what this means for pastors, university professors, staff and other members who disagree with the position needs to be discerned.”
