Siegel, a School of Medicine professor of pediatrics, coauthored a report , published by the American Academy of Pediatrics the week before the court case, arguing that three decades of research concur that kids of gay parents are doing just fine.

In order to be considered for this ranking, a school had to appear on either The Advocate's list of the best schools for LGBT students or InsideCollege. Both of those lists are based on subjective information from experts.

Lots of Christian-affiliated colleges have either declined to take a political stance on gay marriage or adopted more-inclusive policies to keep up with the shifting legal landscape and evolving social trends. While a few evangelical colleges have changed their same-sex policies—for example, Hope College in Michigan will now offer benefits to gay married couples—most theologically conservative Christian colleges are quietly resisting efforts to admit openly gay students. Cedarville is part of a subset of schools that are actively involved in efforts to retain traditional policies against homosexuality. At the moment, there is no federal non-discrimination law that prevents schools from enforcing these policies.
