Christopher Peterman, a senior at Bob Jones University, started a Facebook page called Do Right BJU whose mission statement is "an abuse awareness and support group at Bob Jones University." Peterson's Facebook page showed the links the Christian university had with a child rape cover-up. Peterson began petitioning to ask Bob Jones University to remove Chuck Phelps from the board of trustees.
According to ABCNews.com, Chuck Phelps, a pastor of an Independent Fundamentalist Baptist church, allegedly covered up Tina Anderson's rape by sending her thousands of miles away:
Ernest Willis, a New Hampshire man accused of raping and fathering a child with a 15-year-old girl from his church in 1997, was found guilty today of three counts of forcible rape and a count of felonious sexual assault.This Tuesday, Christopher Peterman was expelled from Bob Jones University for watching Glee, after a series of meetings with the schools officials and threats to kick him out of the university for his activity on his Facebook page.
Willis' case drew national headlines because his victim, Tina Anderson, who gave an exclusive interview to "20/20" last month, said she was forced to confess her "sin" -- the pregnancy -- in front of their congregation at Trinity Baptist Church, an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church (IFB) in Concord, N.H. The church's then-pastor, Chuck Phelps, helped arrange for Anderson to move thousands of miles away from home to live with an IFB family and give her child up for adoption.
