The Penn and the Sword

At Penn State, the public at large becomes aware of a sexual assault cover-up, and heads roll.

At Bob Jones University, the public at large becomes aware of a sexual assault cover-up, and the primary person involved in covering it up remains part of the school's Co-Operating Board of Trustees.

And the Chancellor of the University's reply to one concerned alumna?

Dear [Alumna]:

The Bob Jones University board of trustees is made up of God-fearing men and women. For them to remain on this board they must be walking with God and living righteously. Their personal and ministry integrity is the requisite above all others which qualifies them to be members in good standing.  None would be retained whose life or ministry was found to be in violation of the Scriptures.

Kind regards,

Bob Jones III
Chairman, Board of Trustees
Bob Jones University

When a secular University at least attempts to make something right while a "Christian" University denies there's even a problem, there is something deeply, inherently wrong. This is unacceptable. This is ungodly.

Amos 5
1 Listen, you people of Israel! Listen to this funeral song I am singing:

7 You twist justice, making it a bitter pill for the oppressed. You treat the righteous like dirt.

10 How you hate honest judges! How you despise people who tell the truth!

12 For I know the vast number of your sins and the depth of your rebellions. You oppress good people by taking bribes and deprive the poor of justice in the courts.
13 So those who are smart keep their mouths shut, for it is an evil time.
14 Do what is good and run from evil so that you may live! Then the LORD God of Heaven's Armies will be your helper, just as you have claimed.
15 Hate evil and love what is good; turn your courts into true halls of justice. Perhaps even yet the LORD God of Heaven's Armies will have mercy on the remnant of his people.

18 What sorrow awaits you who say, "If only the day of the LORD were here!" You have no idea what you are wishing for. That day will bring darkness, not light.

21 I hate all your show and pretense— the hypocrisy of your religious festivals and solemn assemblies.

23 Away with your noisy hymns of praise! I will not listen to the music of your harps.
24 Instead, I want to see a mighty flood of justice, an endless river of righteous living.

May God bring justice.
