    Maybe...though we have rules about refraining from alcohol at some locations...but, seems like this should have been a screen-out element prior to assignment selection. "Are you willing to adhere to the BYU honor code which includes abstaining from caffeine?" Any "No" answer is disqualifying.

    But...the heck with them...I say go ahead and move it.
    I can agree, an Honor code is a good idea, as long as all adhere to it. BUT no caffine? And one can't have it when NOT at ROTC? Fut the whuk..

    I mean it would be like say Walmart telling its employees "To be healthier, there will be no use of Tobaaco products. NOT EVEN WHEN YOU are off shift and sitting at home".. To me that would be illegal of them do make that sort of rule.
    SURE i can understand them doing so when AT WORK, but not when off shift...

    This happens. Not at Walmart but there are several companies that do have the requirement (even away from work).

    I don't know if any of those were Mormon...I don't really get them often...I can remember one time in the last 5 years that I've been in my current house...they didn't really stay and chat long, they were just kinda like...oh something about salvation, here is a pamphlet. Maybe they were put off cuz I was sitting on my front porch drinking whiskey and smoking a cigar.

    I was using walmart as an example. AND yes i know several companies (CVS) have tried implementing that and have YET to get challenged on its legality..

    Were you always LDS-Lite or were you heavy at one point?

    I'm just curious...usually when people go through the conversion deal...they do so with a great deal of commitment and zeal...at least initially, then may mellow over time, I reckon.

    Oh. You mean like when you first converted to reform atheistic judaism, changed your name from measured man to Bos Mutus & began spamming the forum with endless posts about aborted children's being nothing more than zygotes and Christ-bashing us on every other thread here, shouting down anyone who dared to disagree (with non sensicle gibberish about fig trees)?

    Mormonism is truly the "Made in the USA" religion. & Raimaker personally observed the change they made in his Vicodin addicted Brother's life (after he converted).

    Also, Mormans have many beautiful, fertile, blonde wimmins, that want to have lots of kids, so now that our glorious-leader has stopped the 3rd world invaders colonization of America, they may end up becoming the nation's defacto christian majority soon.

    But, utimately Rainmaker chose to go with the Methodists because, John Wesley was a saint & it's in walking distance of the house. And my twins go to private-school there, so they cut a break on the tuition, if you join up. And Rainmaker generally likes keep all options open, So we'll definitely keep the Mormons in-mind.

    BTW...Did Utah ever get rid of that 3.2 beer? They have all the ingredients there for a thriving micro-brew scene.
