Not really commenting on the subject of the article, but this sentence touches upon something that has always fascinated me about certain fundamentalist Christian groups:
Faculty members and other employees are expected to adhere to the university’s literal interpretation of the Bible and are forbidden to drink alcohol.The bible is filled with non-negative references to alcohol. If you take it literally, there is more basis to argue for an endorsement to drinking (at least in moderation) than temperance. I understand why people would be opposed to alcohol. Although I am not personally against it and have been known to drink, alcohol clearly is the cause of a lot of problems. I just don't get why people who claim to live by a literal reading of the bible would be the same people who don't believe in drinking alcohol.
