John McCain School Daze

First, John McCain kissed and made up with Jerry Falwell by speaking at Falwell’s Liberty University.

Now, which other university that McCain criticized for its intolerance and anti-Catholic beliefs in his 2000 presidential campaign has the prospective GOP presidential candidate said he would consider speaking at this time around?

A. Brigham Young University
B. Bob Jones University
C. Texas Christian University
D. Ole Miss

B: Bob Jones University, which only recently lifted its ban on interracial dating and is seen by many as strongly anti-Catholic — so much so that President Bush once apologized to New York Cardinal John O’Connor after speaking there himself.

Said Bob Jones spokesman Jonathan Pait, “We haven’t changed our position [on Catholicism versus Protestantism] at all…We don’t hate Catholics. We certainly disagree with Catholicism, but I think it’s going a bit far to say it’s anti-Catholic.”
