Dr. Bob Jones III has a doctorate in what, precisely?—Jones endorses Romney

“Dr. Bob Jones III, chancellor of the fundamentalist Christian university that bears his name, is looking past his religious differences with Gov. Mitt Romney and endorsing the Mormon for the Republican nomination for president, he told The Greenville News today”—as reported by the befuddled Ron Barnett, apparently a staff writer, for greenvilleonline in a story titled Bob Jones III endorses Romney for president

“This is all about beating Hillary,” Jones said. “And I just believe that this man has the credentials both personally and ideologically in terms of his view about what American government should be to best represent the rank and file of conservative Americans” etc., etc.

Evangelicals are “warming” to Romney!—see: Mark DeMoss: my dead mentor would vote for Romney—so you should too OR to oppose Giuliani, the Family Research Council is willing to endorse Romney—Tony Perkins sips the Romney kool-aid OR religious conservatives render themselves completely irrelevant in a single gesture—the Romney question and the “Republican Collapse”

P.S. The estimable Tommy Oliver responds to the misguided Jones endorsement on race42008.com:

Bob Jones III, president of BJU (or “Dr. Bob,” as he is affectionately known to students and faculty), made a March 3 appearance on CNN’s “Larry King Live.” During the show, Jones offhandedly remarked, “As of today, we have dropped the [interracial ban].” Three days later, Dr. Bob clarified his statement, saying that students would need to submit a signed parental consent form to the dean before the school would allow them to commingle. The policy was further modified two days after that; now students are asked to inform their parents about any interracial relationship, and if the parents disapprove, the messed-up delinquents will be referred to a campus counselor …

    Doctorate of Divinity. I would think that any Doctor would lift an interracial dating ban if he had inherited it. He also inherited a lot of other strange dating restrictions like a 6-inch rule where members of the opposite sex are only allowed to hold hands if they become engaged. Supposedly, ealier Baptists didn’t know how to control themselves!
