Bob Jonesification


  • Term coined by Princeton professor Robert George, speaking rhetorically about how conscientious objectors to same-sex marriage can expect to be stigmatized as part of the "Bob Jonesification of dissenters".

    In 1983, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Bob Jones University, a fundamentalist Christian institution, would not be entitled to tax-exempt status if it maintained policies banning interracial dating and marriage. The university has since apologized for past " institutional policies regarding race," which are no longer in effect.
