Bob jones ban on interracial dating

Students are banned from dancing, going to movie theaters, watching television, having DVD players in the dorms, unfiltered Internet access, and listening to any kind of unapproved music (including jazz, country-western and Christian Rock).

Anything displaying the Abercrombie & Fitch brand is also banned for whatever reason, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

In an attempt to stave off criticism, the university hired GRACE (Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment) to study their response.

Since sexual tensions are the strongest forces in the universe, BJU forbids the extended touching of a member of the other sex (who is not currently married to you).

Other rules include having a chaperone present on any intersex group trips off campus, and a "four on the floor" rule requiring an open door and all 4 feet on the floor at all times during dorm visits from members of the opposite sex.

They are allowed to own TV's for video gaming purposes, but the games can't be rated higher than E10, and the games cannot contain any gore, violence, or (God forbid) rock music.

Bob Jones University is so antigay that a support group, BJUnity, recently formed for students who came out after graduation.
