Greenville, South Carolina – Although Bob Jones University is not the first fundamentalist school to have gay alumni, it is the first to threaten their arrest.
Wayne Mouritzen is a 60 year-old retired gay minister, and a graduate of Bob Jones U. Last October he received a letter from the university which stated, "As long as you are living as a homosexual, you, of course, would not be welcome on the campus and would be arrested for trespassing if you did visit."
Bob Jones University doesn't need to worry about losing its tax-exempt status. It voluntarily gave up its tax-exempt status in 1970, when it banned interracial dating.
