Gleek Expelled From School For Watching The Show?!

What kind of backwards bull is this!?!

Bob Jones University is under suspicion for banishing senior Chris Peterman just because he watched an episode of Glee at an off-campus Starbucks!!

He was THREE WEEKS AWAY FROM GRADUATION!!

This insane act of ridiculousness comes right after he started an activism club against sexual abuse.

Such a shame…

The school had already issued him demerits for returning to his dorm late one night and forgetting to shave one day. And they pride themselves on strict regulations — one of which bans the viewing of "sexually perverse" television. In uptight talk, that means anything gay.

Officials insist his Gleek status isn't to blame for his "disrespect" demerit, but Chris believes the school had been after him ever since he started the club. So you can bet he's fighting this one HARD!!

And he should!! Because honestly, not loving Glee might just be the most blasphemous thing we've heard all month!!

    it's fucked up…the school is fucked up…but it's not our business…it is a private school that does not take federal funds…our laws or goodwill don't apply to the fucktards that run the place.

    I”m sure there's more to this story than your usual slanted version.

    his first mistake was choosing to attend Bob Jones University..

    yes, that school is stupid and ridiculous. but he chose to attend that school knowing about their idiotic regulations

    Esin, where you are wrong is that the school DOES accept federal funds in the way of student loans. As such, they are required to allow first amendment expression (which cannot be signed away by agreeing to follow an honor code). The entire story is that Chris was repeatedly threatened and intimidated for starting a protest against sexual abuse cover ups. Once he began that protest, the school targeted him for expulsion, even though viewing tv off campus is not against the rules. This is a much bigger story than him watching Glee.

    Re: Esin Emko – Actually, they do accept government funds for scholarships. So…yeah. There's that.

    The fact that this school never admits when it has done wrong until they're pressured (I seem to remember a sort of racist policy that had in place until a few years ago), the fact that they worry more about image than actually taking kids where they are, and the fact that they say they're accredited (I researched and they're not) is precisely why I'm not a Christian. The fact that this kid stood up for things like sexual abuse victims despite the university's cover actually makes me want to consider it again.

    Re: Esin Emko – They do take federal funds. About 10 years ago, the "removed" the racist policy that prevented them from accepting federal funds and they do now take federal funds. (I say removed because it is hardly gone, just not on the books anymore.)

    Good for the school! This idiot broke the rules and he should be punished accordingly. Excuse me while I laugh at this imbicile student. You got what you deserved.

    Re: Lady Who? – no doubt eh



  13. 13

    Good for the school. Sexually perverse things like homosexuality should be rejected, even if a portion of society is wrong and accepts it.

    There is indeed more to this story. Chris organized the first ever student protest to promote support for the victims of sexual abuse (a school trustee helped cover up a rape involving a victim who was a minor). The school promised (on TV) no retaliation, but having graduate from BJU myself, I can tell you they will punish you for eating cornflakes if they think you have a bad attitude, or aren't 'spiritual' enough. The place is cult run by megalomaniacs.

    Re: Mad Dog – Oh and btw "a portion of society"? It's a big fat portion of the society. I hope that in the future people like you are put in the spotlight and forced to tell why you think it's wrong. Then I hope everyone throw tomatoes and rocks at your face. Your ignorance is disgusting. Were you born in the 50's? It's the 20th century now darling. Get with it. The times… They are a'changin'. Get used to it.



  16. 16

    everyone should be expelled for watching that show haha

    private school asshat, they can do whatever they want.

    Mr. Hilton,

    First, can I just say that how you filed this story made me laugh SO HARD! :)

    <<Filed under: Icky Icky Poo > Wacky, Tacky & True > Glee>> — Seriously, <— that is HILARIOUS! :) >>

    Second, thank you so much for covering my story. I did in fact start Do Right BJU, a sexual abuse awareness and support group, last semester in response to a member of the BJU Board of Trustees covering up the rape of a 15 year old girl. I called on his resignation and I called for the school to educate the students on abuse.

    I truly believe that I was targeted by the school because of Do Right BJU. I was required to go to meetings with the Dean of Men where I was, in my opinion, harassed and stalked via social media.

    I did receive 50 demerits for watching Glee off campus, even though there are NO RULES about students watching TV off campus.

    The official reason I was expelled was for "intimidating" BJU after I informed them that I had contacted the Department of Education, TRACS (the accrediting board), several Congressman, and several news agencies that were involved with covering the Do Right BJU student protest.

    I was nine days away from graduating from college and BJU expelled me. The reasons: tweeting before a service (not against the rules), watching Glee (not against the rules), and "intimidating" them.

    Thank you for covering my story, Mr. Hilton.

    -A Gleek,
    Christopher Peterman

    Uh I had family members go to Bob Jones and DUH of course this kid got expelled! I'm not saying it was right, but nothing SEXUAL is allowed…period. Gay, straight, all of the above…hell my cousins that went there weren't even allowed to play with cards because they were allegedly "of the devil". The student should have kept his mouth shut and not told anyone that he saw the show…especially since he knew the rules of the school AND being so close to graduation.

    Thank you so much for picking up on this story. Chris is a personal friend of mine and, just for the record, he was expelled ten days prior to graduation. He's one of the greatest guys I know, and I'm old enough to be his mom (wish I was, because I'm so proud of him for taking the stand he took). What BJU did to him is abhorant. I went there, I know.

    Re: dryan1971 – Have you read the rule book? I have! Yea, he totally did NOT break the rules. It is totally ok to watch tv shows as long as the student is off campus. Unfortunately, Chris was harassed, intimidated, and targeted for expulsion for drawing attention to sexual abuse scandals, not because he watched Glee. Glee was just the cover story of the admin.

    Re: raypearson – um, even private institutions are legally required to follow some laws. I know that it is a lot easier to write this off as just don't go there if you don't like it or you knew what you were getting into, so it is your fault. But many of the students who wind up at super-conservative, fundamentalist institutions end up their because of family pressures, because they had no where else to go at 17, because it was the only option ever presented to them that wouldn't damn them to hell (or so said their preachers and teachers). Chris DID keep the rules and was a good student on the cusp of graduating–but BJU can brook no dissent and manufactured reasons to expel him. And, for the record, just because they are a private institution, they still have to allow students first amendment expression. Intimidation and harassment because Chris disagreed with them is illegal and against the constitution.

    Re: #DoRightChrisPeterman – Nice excerpt. Wanna tell the whole story now?

    Today, from 9 to 10 am, we will be on the air discussing this situation from right here in Greenville County, home of Bob Jones University. If you can't listen live, the show is archived at the same address. Christopher Peterson will be on the show, from an "undisclosed location". Tune in, or check out the podcast.

    Re: efitz86 – It may not have been his choice. When your parents are die-hard conservative christian fundamentalists and they are footing the college bill; you don't get a choice.

    BJU DOES take federal money. they disburse stafford and other subsidized and unsubsidized loans. Of course, if you've maxed out your student loans you can go through their "partner bank" for a private loan…pinnacle bank…which just so happens to be owned by Bob Jones III.

    Re: Amburbubu – Where to begin. You preach tolerance, than advocate stoning. You preach freedom, then say I shouldn't be allow to have my own opinion. And it's the 21st century, not the 20th. Not very bright, are you.



  31. 31

    Yes, it's a private school, and he knew the rules. But why is it ok for BJU to keep a board member who helped cover up a rape and demand an apology from a rape victim and it's not ok for Chris to watch Glee on his own computer when he's off campus? Also, students that attend places like this are often told from a young age that it's what God wants them to do. It's hard after drinking kool aid for 18 years to think that mommy and daddy might not be right. There's enormous pressure on these kids to attend. My own father said that he'd pay for my schooling if I went to BJU. I declined, and not only did I not get a penny or any help when I was going to school, but my family can't even speak to me any more. Think these kids choose to go to BJU because it's loads of fun? Chris had the backbone to question these bloated air bags and they followed him around looking for any reason to get rid of him. We all know that if you watch Glee, you'll get teh gayz so that was an easy fix. Sure, Glee was part of it. But not caring if a rape was covered up by a board member at BJU is what started the whole thing.

    chris is an amazing person and im so proud of him for being strong through all this

    The guy decided to go to that school, and he should have been aware of the strictness of the ridiculous rules there. (I was a student for 3 years.) Also, why is he fighting this?! His credits aren't worth anything, anyways. The school isn't accredited.
