True, W was losing the primaries to McCain

he went to BJU gave a speech and jumped in the arms of Bob Jones. (actually they hugged)

that was the GOP primary turning point from McCain to Bush

without Bush embracing a racist he would not be president

I worked with a girl who had attended Liberty University (Jerry Fawell's school). When I found out that little fact, I though "Aha! That explains a lot..."

I can't imagine any young person today who would willingly go somewhere like this. I don't care how "moral" you are, just the idea that they have that much control over your private conduct is terrifying. Their parents must have pressured them to go. Nice parents.

What?! That's ridiculous! Then again, I guess that if people realise that when they choose to go to that institution, then it's fair enough. Seems daft though!

My undergraduate university (tiny Southern Baptist liberal arts university in rural Kentucky) had a lot of similar rules. We could have posters, CDs, TVs, etc., but we had random room checks all the time and they were pretty strict about things like posters with drug references, scantily clad people, etc. Residence halls for men and women were on opposites sides of the campus and you had to have a breathalyzer test if you wanted to get back into the dorms after 11pm.

I don't get it, if people choose to go there because they like the lifestyle, then why would they have to need it regulated? My guess is that the people who choose to attend BJU (hehehe, BJ...) aren't tollerant to people with other lifestyles and want to surround themselves with 'their own kind'.

When you take into account that this is the same school that banned interracial dating into the 21st century, the fact that you aren't allowed to watch PG-rated movies really seems trivial by comparison.

make sure you dont bring your Cd's but feel free to bring your handgun?

that's just insane!

interesting fact there knox, i couldnt agree more. the petty rules may be silly and laughable, but its the underlying reasoning and tension behind them thats really concerning.

no... but again, this is college... yes, your parents my try to influence you to go somewhere, but you are 18... you are emancipated... you have the choice not to go there if you don't want to. your parents can't force you to do anything at that point. it's a personal choice.

The people who go to this school are culturally preconditioned to maintain a relationship with their parents similar to that the rest of us experienced throughout childhood. That, and if your parents are paying your way, you don't get as much say in where you go.

That's a fairly broad assumption

I have three friends that go to Notre Dame and two that go to Loyola Marymount and while they do have strict rules about certain behaviors (i.e. sex, drugs, etc.) they also encourage independent scholarship for their students. One of my friends who graduates from Notre Dame next year, was allowed by the school to establish the first feminist club on campus. For a Catholic university, we both thought that was pretty cool. Granted, there are things related to sex that she can't discuss in depth if the meetings are held on campus, but the meetings aren't always held on campus.

Not really, we're talking about a relatively small number of people.
