Independent Fundamentalist Baptist College Kid Friendship Permission Form – Christians lowering marriage rates due to their own stupid teachings about sex, dating, marriage, etc

This is via Stuff Fundies Like – it contains a photo of a “friendship pass,” a form college students are required to fill out if they intend on spending anytime with an opposite gender friend (from a Baptist / Christian college):

    This is a Friendship Request Form from Providence Baptist College which may seem a little odd until you realize that boys and girls who want to “court” have to get permission from the college admin.

    The problem is, of course, that that not a lot of kids wanted to make the comittment required to fill out a “Courtship Courtesy Request Form.” Since too many students were refusing to fill out the CCRF early in their relationships (and claimed “just friends” status) the friendship request form was born.

    There’s no word on whether they also have “eyes met across a crowded room” or “just really wishing she’d notice me” forms.
