    Condemning the discriminatory practices prevalent at Bob Jones 
                              University.

Whereas the Senate strongly rejects the practices of racism, segregation, and 
        intolerance based on religious beliefs;
Whereas the administration of Bob Jones University enforces a segregationist 
        policy by prohibiting interracial couples on the Bob Jones University 
        campus;
Whereas officials of Bob Jones University routinely disparage those of other 
        religious faiths with intolerant and derogatory remarks;
Whereas officials of Bob Jones University have likened the Pope of the Roman 
        Catholic Church to a ``possessed demon'', and branded Catholicism as a 
        ``satanic system and religion of the anti-Christ'';
Whereas the Website of Bob Jones University greets visitors with the 
        University's belief that Catholicism and Mormonism are ``cults''; and
Whereas senior officials of Bob Jones University have made openly racist remarks 
        on many occasions regarding African Americans and Asian Americans: Now, 
        therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), 
That Congress--
            (1) condemns practices, such as those prevalent at Bob 
        Jones University, that seek to discriminate against and divide 
        Americans on the basis of race, ethnicity, and religion; and
            (2) strongly denounces individuals who seek to subvert the 
        American ideals of inclusion, equality, and social justice.
                                 <all>
