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.
A dual citizen of both Australia and the United States, Kelsie has enjoyed breaking down all of her pre-conceptions of this country as she’s put a lens on the American people. Prior to RadioWest, she was filming short documentaries worldwide, getting to the heart of rural communities disadvantaged by poverty. As she invests in Utah and the community here, she is picking up a slight American accent that her Australian family is not proud of.
