BYU basket ball player booted for archaic "honor code" violation.
All over the news. A BYU student and basket ball player was booted off the team for violating the archaic "honor code" violation for admitting having pre-marital sex.
I wonder how this player would feel about his college's heritage if he knew the barbaric history of it's founder.
I am so sick of religious people pretending to be the inventors of morality.
There are non superstitious reasons one should want to "keep it in their pants". You could pick up a disease. You could end up with an unwanted kid that would cause you to quit your education. THOSE are lagit reasons to refrain from sex.
Among BYU's other bullshit rules, no drinking, no smoking AND NO CAFFEINE.
AGAIN, it is one thing to say, "Binge drinking is dangerous, and peer pressure should not lead you to do stupid things"
"Smoking is bad for you".
But basing this on a God you cant prove exists, that and the fact that others outside your religion ALL OVER THE WORLD, have come to the same conclusions without your god, should say to you that these rules no matter how well intended, DO NOT DEPEND ON BELIEVING IN YOUR GOD!
Having said that, people who attend this school know the rules and as such the school had every right to kick him off the team.
But don't pretend that morality is something that has been invented by a specific label.
I wonder how many Mormons know how vile the founders of their religion were. It was started by a con-man and its descendants committed acts of genocide on Native Americans and threw their own under the bus in the cover up.
Considering that College's founder and the Mormon history, and it's continued misogyny and sexism, they have a lot of nerve preaching to this player.
