A school district in Massachusetts has cut ties with Gordon College, citing its president’s plea for an exemption to a rule preventing federal contractors from discriminating against gay and lesbian people, The Boston Globe reports.
The Lynn School Committee, which governs the city’s public-school district, is the latest institution to protest D. Michael Lindsay’s signature on a letter asking the federal government to exempt religious colleges from the executive order. The city of Salem, Mass., in July nixed a contract that allowed Gordon College to use its town hall.
