Loving the redirect[edit]

I am loving the redirect.-αmεσ (orator)

Diploma Mill? Yes, superb. Only thing is, we should do an article on Diploma Mills, since they're so often associated with wingnuttery, moonbattery, batshitinsanery and the usual cretinous groups, no? DogP 19:34, 31 March 2008 (EDT)
Always glad to add lulz to teh site. Hmm...yes it should have an article...how to do this? "Diploma mill redirects here, click here for diploma mills? Secret Squirrel 19:41, 31 March 2008 (EDT)

Is there an actual source for the claim about diploma mills, or are we ignoring citations in favor of creating a more satire oriented article?209.173.81.173 01:48, 1 June 2008 (EDT)

category : higher education?[edit]

rolls on the floor laughing my ass off. I love how they call themselves a University, and are an institute of higher learning". I guess it's higher than the homeschooling, but not by much.--Pink mowse.pngGodotThe Peyote God awaits 05:19, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Something interesting[edit]

I was curious on where their staff members got their degrees from and like I mentioned they are from legit schools (many got their undergraduate degrees from BJU) but what is really interesting is the fact one of their "science" faculty works at a North Korean university. I do not remember which staff member but I was shocked when I read it. Why on Earth would someone be proud enough to work for a North Korean University by putting it on their biography? --Rationalzombie94 (talk) 20:25, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Name[edit]

"Bob Jones University" sounds like the name of a university in some poorly written story made by a person with minimal imagination. I mean, c'mon, he could have at least tried to make it sound worthwhile. Sam Tally-ho! 00:38, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

I grew up only a couple minutes away from this cult, in Greenville. A colloquial term used by some of the locals for the university is "Bob Jones Penitentiary".

Academics[edit]

Back in January, I added an example of BJU's Biology classes but some kind of box shows up around the. How do I remove it? --Rationalzombie94 (talk) 19:36, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

You can't begin a line with a space (well okay, you can, but that's what causes the box). If you want a list, use * on it's own to make bullets, or # for a numbered list. - Grant (Talk) 21:32, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

One more thing- I found a mention of BJU's nursing program, I am not sure to add it as it does not have much info. Here is the link- http://best-nursing-colleges.com/bob-jones-university --Rationalzombie94 (talk) 03:06, 7 February 2014 (UTC)--Rationalzombie94 (talk) 03:06, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Can someone explain this?[edit]

I'm confused by the line on the article, "guilty of condemning the abuser to Hell." Does the University honestly believe that criminals only go to hell if they get snitched on? That really limits God from being an all-knowing entity who punishes people for every minor misdeed... to a half-assed worker who can't be bothered doing any part of His job without actually being asked first.-- Forerunner (talk) 09:53, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

That line didn't doesn't actually appear in the NYT article that's cited so I'm going to remove it. AugustusCaesar (talk) 15:59, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
