Imagine paying an organization $70,000 and 4 of your best years so that they can nitpick your clothes choices, tell you where to go to church, and inspect your room Gestapo-style everyday—all in the name of “Christlikeness”. You just imagined BJU. ~Clinton Verley’s Facebook wall
If only it was JUST them nitpicking clothes choices, telling you where to go to church, and inspecting your room Gestapo-style every day. But in reality, it’s so much worse than that.
Don’t mistake me as saying that there is no good at the school. There is, in some of the people. But overall…being there for five months was deeply emotionally and psychologically damaging to me in ways that I’m only now, 2 years later, beginning to understand.
To top it off, unlike Dani, I was raised in this system of belief. Five months? Try 19 years. Yeah, I’ve got lots of fun issues.
