“Student Activities Commission voted 8-4”
This is good news. You have to wonder how it came to this, though. Georgetown is a Catholic school.

Georgetown votes against defunding traditional marriage group
The Georgetown University Student Activities Commission voted 8-4 Thursday night against defunding Love Saxa, a student group that supports traditional marriage.
Following a hearing Monday that ended with no vote after three hours of deliberation, commissioners deliberated in a private executive session for almost two hours Thursday night regarding formal complaints filed by LGBT student groups accusing Love Saxa of violating Georgetown’s Student Organization Standards.
Jasmin Ouseph, co-chair of the Racial and Cultural Inclusivity policy team, and Chad Gasman, the president of GU Pride, submitted a formal notice to the university in October asserting that Love Saxa’s definition of marriage fosters hatred and intolerance.
The rule in question states that “groups will not be eligible for access to benefits if their purpose or activities…foster hatred or intolerance of others because of their race, nationality, gender, religion, or sexual preferences.”
Gasman argued that “when they deny certain individuals who are queer access to this ideal standard of a relationship, they immediately say that all queer relationships are not as valid as heterosexual relationships.”
