Our Topic – Direct to My Desk – BYU’s Honor Code / Westboro’s Hate / New Bible Translations
We open the phone lines and let you weigh in on three topics. 1) Is the hate speech of the Westboro “Baptist Church” still free speech? 2) Brigham Young University has dismissed a key player from their #3 ranked basketball team for having sex with his girlfriend. The action violated the Mormon school’s honor code and the school has decided that principle trumps a possible national championship. 3) The new translation of the New American Bible (used for the Church’s liturgies) has changed the translations of “booty,” “Holocaust,” and “virgin.” Al explains and then we ask if this is a good thing or bad thing.
