John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another.

Kuhn also pushed back on the idea that the initial policy had discriminated against would-be LGBT students.
