[Videos] Candler School of Theology students, alumni protest anti-gay minister’s award

Last week, Emory University's Candler School of Theology honored anti-gay minister Rev. Dr. H. Eddie Fox, head of World Evangelism for the World Methodist Council, with a Distinguished Alumni Award. Controversy surrounded the decision because of Fox's anti-gay stances within the United Methodist Church and plenty of students and faculty joined a chorus of displeasure with the decision.

Holding signs that stated, "Don't honor exclusion," "No Awards for Homophobia" and "Fox is not fantastic," dozen of students, alumni and allies gathered at the "Rally for an Inclusive Emory" at the building where the awards luncheon was held on Sept. 27. Check out some of the action captured on video:
