But does not the ban on the admission of blacks constitute a very powerful form of racism itself?Discrimination and segregation on the basis of race is racism.God has made people different one from another and intends those differences to remain..Bob Jones University is opposed to intermarriage of the races because it breaks down the barriers God has established.Its Mission Statement is: Within the cultural and academic soil of liberal arts education, Bob Jones University exists to grow Christlike character that is Scripturally disciplined; others-serving; God-loving; Christ-proclaiming; and focused Above.For years, Bob Jones University was a routine campaign stop for conservative Republicans visiting South Carolina.
In 1947, it moved to Greenville, South Carolina and changed its name to Bob Jones University. BJU continued to appeal up to the Supreme Court, where it lost its case in 1983.Pettit also states that the dating issue is “a social and cultural issue, not a biblical issue.” As an evangelical pastor I can hardly accept the dichotomy between biblical and social, believing as most evangelicals do, that biblical principles have their most abiding influence on social and cultural norms.Bob Jones University (BJU) is a conservative, Christian arts college in Greenville, South Carolina that was founded in 1927. Bob Jones III assumed the responsibilities of president. Stephen Jones was installed as the fourth-generation president during commencement in 2005. The University did not enroll Africans or African-American students until 1971.The prohibition on black enrollment was racism and the limitation of the university’s Christian education to white students a manifestation of white supremacism.Furthermore, the stipulation that black students, once enrolled, only marry “within their race” was racism, and the continuation of that policy until the end of the century was a continuation of racism. John Chrysostom famously exhorted, “Let the sinner’s repentance be as notorious as his sin.” Has the Bob Jones University leadership truly repented from its racist past? Supreme Court, hardly an effort to be expended for an “insignificant” matter.
