Not to be outdone by the post of PCC parodies last week, some Bob Jones grads have come up with their own songs that help tell the story of what life is like on that campus.
I’ve given this mishmash of songs the title of: Doge from the Boje. Don’t ask me why. It was late.
1 – Artist Series
2 – BJU and Me
3 – I Love Basilean
4 – Small Brown Squirrel
5 – The Triple G
6 – Somewhere over in Greenville
About two years ago, I posted a link to a transcript of a meeting held with Bob Jones III where a woman asks him some questions about his support of Chuck Phelps and his actions in not pursuing justice for Tina Anderson after her rape by Ernie Willis.
The audio from that meeting has now been released. Suffice it to say that BJIII does himself no favors by either the tone and content of his responses.
We’ll wait to see how long it takes BJU to pull this advertisement for this bottle-opening spatula.
The product description reads “Pop open a bottle of beer with one end while you flip burgers on the grill with the other…this combination tool is a practical and functional gift for grill masters.”
In 2011 Clarence Sexton went to Pastor’s school at FBC Hammond and showered the church and now-disgraced pastor Jack Schaap with praise.
In 2013 Clarence Sexton is not only on the list of speakers who will be preaching at Bob Jones University’s Bible conference, he’s speaking twice and closing out the conference.
Now stop and consider that BJU would NEVER have someone from a “liberal” denomination or even a leader in the Southern Baptist Convention come to speak at their school because of their huge emphasis on “separation.” Yet, apparently, somebody who merely loves and preaches for a school that is embroiled in abuse, scandal, and horrifying theology is ok since at least those people are still Independent Baptists.
As I have said many times before, the lunatic fringe of fundamentalism is never quite as far away from the “normal” fundamentalists as they would love for you to believe. In fact, if Clarence Sexton is any measure, they’re not different at all.
The yearly “spring break” Bible conference at Bob Jones University starts tomorrow. Check out the schedule and then use Twitter to see my live commentary of the events as they unfold.
See you there!
