Fuller Theological Seminary in California has approved an official student organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students, Charisma News reports. Although other Christian schools have approved similar organizations, Fuller is the first evangelical seminary to do so, and the decision has sparked debate in the larger world of Christian colleges. The group, called OneTable, formed last fall and has attracted about three dozen students. "Fuller is not acting in the students' best interest by sanctioning the group and should instead be teaching reorientation as the students' best option," said Peter Sprigg, an ordained Baptist minister and a senior fellow at the Family Research Council. But the group's founder, Nick Palacios, said he's hoping that "people will see Fuller and OneTable as a model of what the body of the church is supposed to do in this situation."
