It is a little known fact that two of Florida's top colleges, the University of Florida in Gainesville (Gators)and Florida State University in Tallahassee (Noles) were started as Christian colleges. UF (independent fundamental Baptist) and FSU (Presbyterian). Their original purposes were to train pastors and missionaries to spread the Gospel message to the Indians (Native Americans). FSU was started by missionaries from the First Presbyterian Church in the state capital, if you're not aware, and many presidents of bith colleges in the early times were sound, Bible-believing pastors who wanted the Christian message to be brought to the Seminoles. Please make this viral and copy-paste over all sites. It is tre! They were founded on the KJV 1611 Bible.

Many if not most universities were started as seminaries, even state colleges or universities.. Harvard, Yale, Princeton etc... A list of colleges that started as training for preachers would be VERY long. This information is not little known or surprising at all. What is your point?
