Relevant excerpt

Bigotry and hatred will be given no home within our residential community. While each of us has the right to our own personal beliefs, these beliefs in no way give us the right to denigrate another on the basis of his/her age, physical handicap, national origin, sexual orientation, race, gender, or religious affiliation. Our communities will not tolerate verbal or written abuse, threats, intimidation, violence, or other forms of harassment against residents, FHSU staff, or visitors. In addition, we cannot accept ignorance, false humor, anger, alcohol, or substance abuse as an excuse, reason, or rationale for such behavior.
