WASHINGTON—Oklahoma Wesleyan University on Monday became the second institution to withdraw from the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) after two member schools changed their hiring policies to include same-sex couples.
“We believe in missional clarity and view the defense of the biblical definition of marriage as an issue of critical importance,” said Everett Piper, president of the Bartlesville, Okla., school. “The CCCU’s reluctance to make a swift decision sends a message of confusion rather than conviction.”
