To the Editors: 

In the article published on October 17 about the Christian Fellowship at Bowdoin, it was stated that the Fellowship’s leaders “felt they could not sign [the Volunteer Agreement] due to religious convictions, specifically the Christian gospel’s interpretation of homosexuality.”  This view is not universal among Christians.  Many Christians unequivocally support uniform civil rights for all and marriage equality, and feel it is completely within keeping with Christian beliefs and values.  A more accurate statement would have been “the Fellowship’s interpretation of the Christian gospel regarding homosexuality.”  Those who  identify as Christians have a wide spectrum of belief; please use nuance in future coverage of issues involving Christians and their beliefs.
