If Timothy felt persecuted at Moody, what's he going to feel at a secular college? If he manages to pass without getting in over his head, I'd be surprised. But it sounds like they found a group (or think they found) that will baby Tim and drag him through, while he grifts for money to buy gifts for his mama.
As for the KJV thing, alot believe it's the most accurate translation, truest to the original text of the Bible. I'm sure the Rodriguii think they're more holy and perfect because they read that version.
