I Had to Laugh

I know it makes me a bad person, but I just laughed & laughed when I read this:
Charleston Southern is a university of about 3,000 students, and Ward described it as a supportive community, with shared Baptist values. “We all just can’t believe it,” Ward said. “It’s just terrible. We’re completely at a loss for words. We just had all the confidence in the man — everyone used him all the time for his economic forecasts. It’s just unbelievable.”
This is the statement of Johnny E. Ward, Chair of the Board of Trustees at Charleston Southern University after one of their own Economics professors, Al Parish, sucked ten million dollars out of the university's endowment, leaving it effectively empty. Baptist values. When was the last time these misbegotten bastards read the Gospels? I'm an atheist & I go back to the words of Jesus every once in a while.
