Jasmine Nykamp started this petition to Calvin University

March 9, 2021, a table was set up on commons lawn of Calvin University posting a blatant sign reading: "LGBTQ IS A SIN. THE BIBLE SAYS. CHANGE MY MIND". In light of recent events and continuing rhetoric around Calvin Universities' campus, we, as the student body call for Calvin to condemn the intolerance of LGBTQ+ students in addition to the misrepresentation of CRC churches stance on the topic and the exclusion that many students faced. 

This is a call for Calvin to stand with students who are not heard. The concern of LGBTQ+ students has taken a backseat to the opinions of straight students and the fear of silencing one side's opinion has damaged and hurt another. This did not promote healthy dialogue and seeks to label people as sin themselves. We call for the penalization of the three students who did not get approval from the university to post their table, and so wrongly disrespected peers. LGBTQ+ students are often overcome by the privilege attributed to straight students who do not have to experience the result of an incident. 

Calvin students, alumni, and supporters call for action.

Calvin, do not leave your students to fight for themselves. Be the support where it is needed and tell your LGBTQ+ body that you care, and do want them on campus.
