A Baptist College in Texas Now Has a Hilarious New Name

Texas Baptist College really wants foreign students to attend the school.

But in order to maintain their Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) status allowing them to accept those students, they have to be incorporated within the state. But in order to be incorporated within the state, they have to be an accredited institution of higher learning.

Which Texas Baptist College is not. Because it’s not *really* a school where you go to learn things. It’s one of those indoctrination camps where you learn how to become a servant of the Lord and little else.

It’s a school where the application asks if you’ve attended a movie in the past year, and if so, when. (Same with dancing.)

Anyway, this is not a school that’ll pass any sort of accreditation test anytime soon. So, claiming they’re remaining “true to our convictions of remaining independent, the school is just changing names instead.

Texas Baptist College no longer exists.

After Initially Rejecting It, North Carolina High School Now Says It’ll Allow Atheist Club to Form

Just a few days ago, we learned that administrators at Pisgah High School in Canton, North Carolina were refusing to allow the formation of an atheist club run by 15-year-old Kalei Wilson (pronounced KAY-lee):

After first meeting with Assistant Principal Connie Weeks, the student was told that Weeks needed to “look into” the formation of the group. At subsequent meetings, the student was told by Weeks that they should just join a different club, because the secular club didn’t “fit in” to the community at Pisgah High School, and there were no faculty sponsors available — despite the Equal Access Act stating that if a sponsor couldn’t be found, the administration is required to assign one.

Both the Secular Student Alliance and the Freedom From Religion Foundation (along with the ACLU of North Carolina) wrote letters to school officials over the course of several months with hardly a response. A lawsuit was likely imminent since the school already allows a Fellowship of Christian Athletes group without a problem.

But the administrators have now changed their minds, saying they’ll allow the atheist club to form. (I’m sure the media outcry had nothing to do with it…)
