Brigham Young University in Utah plays "Do Ask, Do Tell"
Brigham Young University in Utah, connected very much to the LDS church, is definitely following a “Do Ask, Do Tell” philosophy with a survey of student sexuality, apparently reinforced by the honor code, as in this “Think Progress” story, link.
It still strikes me how “social conservatives” jump on homosexuality as a proxy for a refusal or failure to become socialized into meeting the long-term needs of family or associated community. It also strikes me how some people want to become intrusive and aggressive to keep the world fitting their own moral model, which they know they could fail to live up to themselves.
