On March 3, Bob Jones III told Larry King that he was dropping the school’s ban on interracial dating. Now yesterday the school announced that it has dropped from its website the statement that called Catholicism and Mormonism a “cult.” But it still posts other disparaging comments on Catholicism. See www.bju.edu for more information, especially the Resources page article by Bob Jones Jr., “Romanism and the Charismatic Movement.”

William Donohue, president of the Catholic League, had this to say:

“I am so happy that my religion is no longer seen as a cult in the eyes of Bob Jones University. Just think how delighted I will be once I learn that the school no longer brands my religion ‘a satanic counterfeit, an ecclesiastic tyranny’ and ‘the Mother of Harlots.’”
