I think it's very problematic to say "gee, I wish we hadn't said that, now let's move on," and expect everyone to go along with that. I only read a brief account of BJU, but that seems to be basically what they've done, more than once. This is taken from the Wiki. Some (not directed at you, Garp) will discredit the source automatically, but I'm sure this incident is recorded many places and can be verified: " Also during the 2000 Republican primary campaign in South Carolina, Richard Hand, a BJU professor, spread a false e-mail rumor that John McCain had fathered an illegitimate child. The McCains have an adopted daughter from Bangladesh, and later push polling also implied that the child was biracial," https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Jones_University#:~:text How in Hades does any organization "move on" from that? Not that they have any reason to care what I think - but that is: that they don't - ever. People who do /say this sort of thing leave a lasting, very nasty legacy. Their deeds live on.
