The top 2008 quotes on my alma mater

Christianity Today (January 2009) captures my two favorite.

1.  A sober quote

For far too long, we allowed institutional policies regarding race to be shaped more directly by that [segregationist] ethos than by the precepts of the Scriptures.”

In the Quotation Marks section, p. 6

2.  A funny quote

John and I gather we would find that “fundamentalists” don’t come in one wrapper — that an event at even BOB JONES UNIVERSITY might turn out be more civil than, say, the tolerant University of Wisconsin, Madison.”

– Glenn T. Stanton, director of family formation studies at Focus on the Family, p. 41
