Demand that Pepsi drop Bob Jones University athletics from their corporate sponsorship

PepsiCo must drop the BJU Bruins as a corporate sponsor

Bob Jones University, the radical fundamentalist university in Greenville, South Carolina, began an intercollegiate sports team in 2012 known as the BJU Bruins. The BJU Bruins have several major corporate sponsors -- including PepsiCo. 

This petition demands that PepsiCo immediately drop the BJU Bruins as corporate sponsors on the grounds that Bob Jones University is antithetical to the culture of PepsiCo, that BJU is not where the company wants its sponsorship money to go, and that PepsiCo does not want the publicity of sponsoring BJU. 

 PepsiCo should drop BJU as a corporate sponsor for the following reasons: 
1) BJU's past racist policies 
2) BJU's degradation of women 
3) BJU's stance of blaming victims of abuse and rewarding their abusers 
4) BJU's history on LGBT rights 
5) BJU's views on other religious organizations -- especially Catholicism 
6) BJU's treatment of students and their disregard for civil rights
