Bob Jones University, you might recall, earned international fame in 2000 when its 73-year history of forbidding interracial dating came to an end. The South Carolina university is known for its biblical literalism and strict student morality codes.
As such, a school that unironi cally refers to itself as BJU is an outspoken opponent of homosexuality. In fact, Chancellor Bob Jones III distinguished himself as a staunch biblical literalist when he recommended that gays and lesbians be stoned to death, in keeping with the Bible’s commandment.
As of now, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students simply are expelled if they engage in nonhetero intercourse. We don’t know if Green was aware of the university’s policies prior to his visit, nor do we know how BJU feels about the Affordable Care Act’s birth-control mandate that has so rankled Hobby Lobby (although CFN can make a guess). A representative for the school said Green’s speech has not been made available in digital or analog format.
