"retains little of its Christian foundation"

To claim that Harvard "retains little of its Christian foundation" nonsensical because the university operates the Harvard Divinity School http://www.hds.harvard.edu/ , lead by such ordained preachers as Peter J. Gomes and Karen L. King. The University has daily Christian services, as well as many student and faculty lead extra-curricular Christian clubs. Perhaps a better way of stating this part of the article would be to say "Though the University is no longer ran with Puritan goals in mind, a Christian influence is still felt be the presence of the Harvard Divinity School," with a link to said school's web page.

"One of the 4 Ivy League institutions that accept homeschooled students?" As a homeschooled Ivy League student, I can say that ALL of the Ivies have accepted homeschooled students.

Reversion explained

The scabies outbreak is relevant. Scabies is a sexually transmitted disease, one of many that liberals downplay or try to ignore. Duplicating a complete list of Ivy League entries in this particular entry is not helpful. One can simply click on Ivy League if they care about the entire list.--Aschlafly 22:10, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

According to the Conservapedia article about scabies, "Scabies spreads rapidly under crowded conditions where there is frequent skin-to-skin contact between people, such as in hospitals, institutions, child-care facilities, and nursing homes." There is no mention of sexual transmission. Unfortunately, I've just Googled scabies to find out more, only to find that the Conservapedia article is completely plagiarized from the CDC web site. --Hsmom 22:29, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
I included the list of Ivies because I was looking into the statement that only four of the Ivies admitted homeschoolers. I assume that statement is out of date - I'm guessing they all do - but I ran out of energy to do the research. I'm OK with leaving out the information, if you think it's not helpful. As you point out, readers can look at the Ivy League article. --Hsmom 22:29, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
