We're so lucky to live in these enlightened times... an enlightened country!

For example, they used to burn you at the stake for witchcraft. Now - you just get expelled from college...

Well, for me the real wtf is "Alcohol possession/use - Expulsion" and "second Tobacco possession/use - Expulsion"

However, it's a "Christian College" - a patented shiteaters guild, I guess it's just below the understanding for us.

A "Christian College" is sorta like a "non-alcoholic beer". It leaves out anything that makes the experience worthwhile, and adds nothing to your life other than the ability to say, "I survived four years of Christian College" or "I survived drinking a non-alcoholic beer". You're not any smarter or anything at the end of the experience, you just have a piece of paper that says BS on it, or an empty non-beer can.

Think about it. Faith, for the evangelical Christians who found these kinds of colleges, is about, well, not asking questions. Education is about, well, asking questions. A "Christian college" is inherently a contradiction in terms and the result can be called "education" only in the same way that a non-alcoholic "beer" can be called beer.

I have no problem with the PDF. Its a christian school if you do not agree with their beliefs why would you go there? :)

I think its ignorant for them to do it. But if you want to be ignorant who am I to stand in your way. They advertise their christian values wide and clear, so its not like you don't know what you will be subjected to as a student.

I find them amusing -- who in the world believes in witchcraft in this day and age! -- until you realize that the inevitable outcome of allowing these institutions to call themselves colleges and universities is Monica Goodling. Go Google her. She stocked the Justice Department with fellow Christian warriors of her ilk, and manipulated the Attorney General into firing any who were not ideologically pure. If we called the institutions what they were -- "Jesus Camps", indoctrination institutions, not institutions of learning -- Monica would have never gotten hired and some good men and women would have never gotten fired.

The PDF Jesus Camp. Yep, now *that* would be truth in advertising!
