You know, at Brigham Young University, the mormon-run university in Utah, they have an "honor code" that the students are expected to live by.
I'm reading up on it right now.
Well, and obviously, I don't agree with it, but I don't really care either, I think if they want to do what they want, that's absolutely fine with me.
But one of the things they ban is "substance abuse, and abstinence from alcohol, tobacco, coffee, and tea".
I just wonder... If they were having a party or something, might there be someone who's like, "hey, guys. I got me some iced tea, man, you want a hit?"
Would they like, get disgusted and leave?
I guess I've never been there, I really don't know how relaxed they are about this whole Honor Code thing, but as most of the things are a religious thing, I'd imagine not very.
And, I'm sure you're wondering about their policy on gays.
Well, they say that they will welcome with full membership anyone with stated same-sex attractions, which I thought was relatively reasonable of them, considering they don't like drinking tea.
They say you can't have sex though, although that isn't a huge issue because no one can have sex unless married, and gays can't get married in Utah, obviously.
So, uh, they just don't have sex, I dunno.
The only thing that appeared intolerant was that they didn't welcome anyone who had any acts of "physical intimacy that give expression to homosexual feelings", so basically, you couldn't date, while I think that straight couples can.
But, that is more reasonable than I thought, still.
Oh, Mormons, admirable as always, yet also extremely conservative :P
Anyway, goodnight my Oasisies!
