Christian University Calls Off Promise Keepers Event due to Gender Ideology Stand

Objectivity 3.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Belmont University, a Christian university in Nashville, canceled an event by Promise Keepers due to the group’s opposition to gender ideology. Promise Keepers had planned a series of events called “Daring Faith” to encourage men to live more courageous lives for Jesus. However, the university called them off them after Promise Keepers released a statement against Pride Month. The group affirmed God’s design of male and female and criticized gender ideology. The decision sparked controversy among believers, with some expressing concern about Christian spaces being closed to those who promote conservative views. The cancellation comes amidst similar debates at other Christian institutions, including a Texas Christian University offering a course on “Queer Art of Drag.”
