From the crazy Fundamentalist campus of Bob Jones University ( or "BJ U"), I am proud to bring you some "highlights" from the Rules of the Road, pardner:

*no New Age, jazz, rock or country music is permitted. No Contemporary Christian (!!) music is permitted.

* no Abercrombie & Fitch clothing (as they have "shown an unusual degree of antagonism to the name of Christ, and an unusual display of wickedness in their promotions."

* residence hall students may not attend movie theaters nor can they watch any videos above a "G" rating (strangely enough, students may bring guns onto campus, although they must be stored with trigger locks).

Please be advised that God may indeed love you, but we, however don't trust you one bit.

Well, I think I've laughed enough for one day.   

Thanks for sharing that.

EDIT: I didn't know that Bob Jones University had an aviation program! A missionary aviation program, but an aviation program no less.

Where else can you study both Commercial Flight Maneuvers and Pulpit Speech in junior year?

Is that place absolutely nuts or what?

No no, it is absolutely nuts and one of the shameful "highlights" of my home state. Other interesting factoids:

-Residents are 5 to a room and are encouraged to inform on a roommate if s/he exhibits "unGodly" behavior
-All Internet access is screened and MANY websites blocked. Further, all e-mail is read by censors
-On those chaperoned dates, no physical contact is permitted, not even holding hands
-Men and women walk on separate sidewalks
-The Biology Department only teaches "Creation Science"

The place is an absolute nuthouse and I know of very few who take it seriously.

Anyone sees all that on a daily basis when they attend college.

This my friends is the breeding ground (so to speak) of the next generation of bible-thumping facists, seeking to impose their "filtered" values on the rest of society. As far as I'm concerned, a big wall should be erected around them and they should be allowed to play out their so-called 'Christian' fantasy life to their hearts content, without infecting the rest of the population.

Not the same thing, Mir. As long as a school isn't publicly supported, it can provide "separate but equal" services based on gender. Publicly-funded schools, meanwhile, can also have single-gender dorms and such as long as they also provide co-ed facilities. For instance, my alma mater, the University of South Carolina, is a publicly funded university. It has 25 residence halls. Of those, 5 are women only, 3 are men only, and 17 co-ed. At any rate, since Bob Jones isn't publicly funded, it can do precisely that.

It is indeed, Falcon. Bush caught heat on that one when Bob Jones's policy of banning interracial dating (since repealed) came to light as well as their view that Catholicism is a Satanic cult. And yes, SC is precisely where the Bushies, led by Karl Rove, smeared John McCain through their push-polling.

Oh and P.S. - they also operate an elementary school, junior high school, and high school on their campus.  no

This Biblical fascist training camp also boasts the UGLIEST campus on God's green earth sandwiched between a highway composed almost entirely of strip malls and another road composed of the same.

The buildings are mostly made of cheap yellow brick and lack any architectural grace or beauty whatsoever. Across the street is a strip mall where they sell or used to sell Chick-filet (tasty !!) and a "magazine store" selling porn.

They do, however, have the best collection of Baroque art purchased at rock bottom prices after the end of WWII. The Museum guides are these cruisy clean cut 21 year old boys and it's all quite entertaining.

Another tasty tidbit is that BJU is not accredidated by any of the major regional accredidation boards. Which means that their students are not eligible for any federal financial aid, nor do their degrees mean much outside of the uber-fundie Christian world.

Correct, DesertJets. They can't get accreditation from a normal board like SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) because of their biology department so they're seeking accreditation from the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools which has accredited such fine institutions as Jerry Falwell's Liberty University
