Yet another school is choosing to forego SeaWorld, this time because the company doesn't have "respect for all of God's creation."
Baylor University, the oldest continuously operating university in Texas, has moved its annual Diadeloso summer alumni event from SeaWorld San Antonio to Six Flags in Fiesta, Texas. The private Christian university cited its Christian values as the reason for the switch, according to the school's newspaper, the Baylor Lariat.
"We firmly believe all that we talk and preach here, in the Office of Sustainability about caring for creation," Smith Getterman, assistant director of sustainability and special projects, told the Lariat. "That means the beasts of the land, the birds of the air and the fish in the sea or in this case mammals."
