In late February, Brigham Young University changed a long-standing policy that restricted same-sex relationships among its students. In the past, any romantic same-sex behavior was punishable by academic probation, or in extreme cases, expulsion. The change itself was relatively minor: a removal of certain wording in the honor code of conduct. This change would have been a historic one for the university, and for the LDS Church, which owns BYU. However, only two weeks later, administrative officials forced BYU to completely reverse their decision; it was as if it had never happened in the first place.
