When I saw the description in the first article, I thought it was just an example of a reporter’s not straining himself when doing research. That’s because when reading an MSM article I’m used to seeing “Bob Jones University” followed by “the controversial conservative school that formerly banned interracial dating,” or something to that effect. Now I’m hopeful that the new description will become a trend. Enough of this, and I won’t cringe so much when someone asks me where I got my undergraduate degree.
“We are Christians,” said the younger Joe Gatas, a marketing-management graduate of Bob Jones University, a South Carolina school whose Web site lists readings from the Bible.
