First thing you need to know is the BYU Honor Code system SUCKS:
Live a chaste and virtuous life
Obey the law and all campus policies
Use clean language
Abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee, and substance abuse
Participate regularly in church services
Observe the Dress and Grooming Standards
Encourage others in their commitment to comply with the Honor Code
Students must abstain from the use of alcohol, tobacco, and illegal substances and from the intentional misuse or abuse of any substance. Sexual misconduct; obscene or indecent conduct or expressions; disorderly or disruptive conduct; participation in gambling activities; involvement with pornographic, erotic, indecent, or offensive material; and any other conduct or action inconsistent with the principles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Honor Code is not permitted.
What does this University think is the point of going to college is?
To get an education?
What in the blue hell is wrong with them?
But if you are a student and decide to go to BYU, you have to abide by the rules and Brandon Davies, decided he wanted to break the Honor Code and it got him suspended for the year.
Today, 1280 The Zone in Salt Lake City is reporting that Davies’ girlfriend is pregnant with his child. The honor code does not allow sexual relationships unless you are married, among a hefty list of other rules.
Davies is averaging 11.1 points per game and a team-high 6.2 rebounds, and not having him available for the NCAA tournament will be a major issue for Mr. Fredette and the Cougars.
Forget the Honor Code, Davies broke the “Man Code” and #1 Nohology commandment:
“An $8 box of condoms is better than 25% of your gross income over 18 years”
BYU has confirmed that Davies didn’t do anything criminal (unless you consider not buying a box of Trojans a crime).
Davies made a mistake. That mistake has cost him, his team and his girlfriend. If BYU was truly religious they would be helping him, not pushing him away, but the Honor Code is more important right?
