2016 American politics and Bob Jones University

The NY Times reports today that “four Republican presidential candidates [Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, and Marco Rubio] are expected to appear at Bob Jones University, an evangelical institution in Greenville, S.C., for a forum.

When I was a child no politician would consider – even for a second – seeking the support of Bob Jones, the President of the fundamentalist Bible college named after him. All these years later, Bob Jones and Bob Jones University have become part of what is considered “normal” in America. It’s not normal. I’m sorry. It’s not normal. It’s nuts! See for yourself.

Did I mention…this is nuts?! 

Gordon C. Stewart, Chaska, MN, Feb. 12, 2016 [at least 54 years before “the Rapture” according to Bob Jones, regarded by his followers as the prophet vested with the “100 Year Prophecy”].

    • Kay and I continue to pay for our mixed nuts at Costco. They belong in a jar or a can. Bob Jones University is one big jar full of nuts. But there are many there jars and cans. Take Liberty University, for example, where Bernie spoke to the crazies about Christian virtues, values, and ethics. Have you never seen so many nuts in your lifetime? Your lifetime is a few years longer than mine. I’m looking for a word from the wiser, more elderly, elder!
