Hundreds of people turned out to protest Friday on the campus of Brigham Young University in Provo. The school is sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Demonstrators want the university to reform its controversial Honor Code system, which prohibits students from drinking, smoking, having premarital sex and which includes strict grooming and modesty guidelines.
In a call and response chant, students yelled: “God forgives me, why can’t you?”
Students say the code is not being enforced in a Christ-centered way, and they’re writing letters to administrators demanding that they change how the code is enforced.
