The official student newspaper of Geneva College, the Geneva Cabinet, published an eleven-part series on homosexuality this week.
Titled “Let’s Talk About Homosexuality,” the wide-ranging feature touched on topics including “special challenges for coaches and players” when there are homosexuals in the locker room, a “scientific” analysis of homosexuality by Geneva science professors, Christians’ response to the “pro-gay American climate,” an interview with a “former lesbian” who used the blood of Christ to cure her gay, and even an exclusive interview with an ESPN reporter who spoke out against the lifestyle of the first openly gay professional athlete.
The editors of The Cabinet collectively wrote that “while objectivism is difficult on a subject as charged as this one, we are approaching this topic with an eye for facts, avoiding using our articles as a bully pulpit for our own views.” Joel Shannon, Editor-in-Chief, added “We’ve tried to make this issue a place for facts, and we’ve tried to keep opinion out of it as much as possible.”
The series includes a brief interview in one of its articles with a man identified as a “gay professing Christian.”

Update 11:50am: This article originally mentioned that the Geneva Cabinet did not interview any openly gay individuals as part of its reporting. However, one article published by The Cabinet did contain an brief interview with Zachary Weber, who is identified as a “gay professing Christian.” The Beaver Countian regrets the error and has updated this report accordingly.
