Seattle Pacific University students continue sit-in after viral graduation protest

(RNS) — Chloe Guillot had some parting words for Seattle Pacific University Interim President Pete Menjares as he handed her a diploma from the graduation stage: “We’re not going to stop.”

She also had something to give him in exchange for the diploma: a rainbow pride flag.

Guillot was among the graduating seniors of Seattle Pacific University — a Christian school associated with the Free Methodist Church — who went viral and made nationwide headlines for handing Menjares rainbow flags as they received their diplomas on Sunday. It was the most recent demonstration in the students’ ongoing protest over a policy prohibiting the hiring of LGBTQ people.

“It would feel weird to just go up there and pretend like everything was normal,” Guillot told Religion News Service. “We weren’t just going to do the whole pomp and circumstance and let this issue fade into the background.”

We hope that you’ll always remember us, Pete. And we also hope that you’ll change the policy so that we don’t have to sleep outside your office anymore.
Sincerely,
The Class of 2022 pic.twitter.com/8hrBHeMCTd

Since late May, Guillot and other students have staged a sit-in outside the president’s office in reaction to the board of trustees’ recent decision to uphold the hiring policy, which the students have described as homophobic and discriminatory.
