Sound Familiar?

"KUWAIT CITY - A Kuwaiti official says authorities abruptly ended a music concert by an Egyptian singer in this conservative Muslim country when a young female fan jumped on stage, hugged the male singer and gave him a kiss.

Qanas al-Adwani, who heads the government department that monitors public entertainment, says the girl's behavior at Friday's concert "defied the conservative traditions" of Kuwait.
Al-Adwani also said Sunday that the fan's behavior broke controls on public entertainment, which were imposed by influential Muslim fundamentalists after they failed in 1997 to ban concerts altogether. Concerts have to be licensed by the government, and monitors from the Information Ministry watch the crowd to make sure nobody stands up to dance."

Does the above sound familiar in any way? I invite you to visit Prospective Student Expectations at the Bob Jones University website. This noble institution is located in Greenville, S.C. Don't miss General Expectations, Dress Code. and Residence Hall Life.

Don't you just love religious fundamentalists? The are all the same. Their views are so repugnant that they have to maintain a constant vigil to ensure that their "followers" remain Godly.

About guns. I did find it very strange at first when I visited my American friends in the South West and they all had guns. I had never seen a pistol before. Especially sitting on a coffee table like it was no big deal.

Well, yes, how could they trust God to move their followers?

They kicked my Dad out of Bob Jones for playing foootsy at Supper--actually little more complicated than that and had to do with a Daddy Bob Sermon.
