Bob jones university ends ban on interracial dating

Although this Post was made on or about May 24, 2007, it belongs in the first part of the interracial dating ban Series.

How long will it be before most Christians are as ashamed of their current stance on gay rights as they are looking at that handbook with the interracial ban?

On national television in March 2000, Bob Jones III, who was the university’s president until 2005, stated that BJU was wrong in not admitting African-American students before 1971, which sadly was a common practice of both public and private universities in the years prior to that time.

It teaches that God created the human race as one race.

Me too…It’s amazing how many decades after our country passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 it took for BJU to come around to racial equality.

I know they hate when we draw parallels, but Christian schools across the country say the same thing about homosexual relationships now.

We conformed to the culture rather than providing a clear Christian counterpoint to it.
