I was shocked when I heard that Bob Jones III, the chancellor of the university that bears his name, said that during the announcement of his support for Mitt Romney.

Who would have thought the family and the school who has been so dogged in their commitment to what they see as Christian and conservative principles no matter what the cost would be so pragmatic in their support for a presidential candidate, whose religion Bob Jones III called “erroneous.”

I imagined a certain Constitutional Savior of America proudly speaking at BJU chapel and receiving the Fundamentalist Seal of Approval. What does it say for him when he can’t even get the people as crazy as him to fall in line?
