Ok, you have done a good job of drawing interest with these comments. Mind explaining what you are thinking in a little more detail?
I think he's referring to the SEC here, He1nous, even though there are as many Catholics down here as anybody... Just call us "God-Fearing football maniacs".04-cheers

I think he is referring to Wake Forest.

Vanderbilt, and while it is now state funded Auburn University was founded as East Alabama Male College which was Methodist.

It has a department of religious studies and seminary supported by the United Methodist Church.

It's always better to look before you leap Bit.

But Vanderbilt is not a Methodist school. It merely has a religious department, run by a church, which the church funds...

The rest of the campus, including the medical school, has no such religious affiliations. I've been going there regularly since 1999. Vanderbilt is just a private school...

Quit being obtuse and look it up. It has a seminary which is sponsored by the United Methodist Church. That seminary is not listed as United Methodist because it trains a diversity of denominational ministerial candidates. You will find purse strings attached and that is support. Duke is the same way. Erskine is the same way. The Methodist don't generally handle seminary support the same way that the Baptists do with schools like Baylor and Wake Forest. Emory University is also a United Methodist school which is highly secular in nature, private, but is sponsored by the Church.

By the way Princeton is Presbyterian, Yale is Methodist or perhaps Anglican, and I forget which denomination was responsible for Harvard but it was church founded as well. I know that Princeton and Yale are still very actively supportive of, and supported by churches.
