Baylor, Religious Universities, and Sexual Assault

The Ken Starr-Baylor story shows how religious schools struggle to deal with sex assault: This coverage addresses the dual problem of how to balance the country’s encouragement of sexual assault victims to come forward with campus rules that restrict sexual behavior and, as a result, often inhibit open discussion.  See also the discussion from Baylor alumnus Terry Mattingly: First, it’s hard, in the current legal and cultural climate, to be a school that attempts to defend the basics of Christian doctrine on sex. Second, all big-time sports schools are struggling to handle the current climate of alcohol, sexual assault and the law. Baylor is one of a very few schools that must do both. That’s a double whammy, in the public square. Thus, Baylor faces agonizing questions about its own identity and it’s future in the Big 12.
