As many as 12 former FAMU marching band members face manslughter charges in connection with the death of Robert Champion that he suffered as the result of a hazing ritual. Few people can recall their High School and College experience without calling to mind all of the Fraternities,  Sororities, and athletes that resided on their Campus. For HBCU’s (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), the marching band calls to mind just as much, if not more memories than “The Divine Nine” (nine Greek Letter Organizations that are members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council). Many of us have friends and family members who till this day claim membership with these organizations. And many more of us may be members ourselves. For those of us in the know, the word Hazing will have special significance. This one word, which can be interpreted to mean many things referred to the rituals and rites of passage the initiate must pass though in order to gain full membership. Considered by many to be just another aspect of College life, the practice of Hazing has taken on a far different meaning in the news today. Scores of stories of physical and mental abuse, injury and even death are becoming more and more common. Upon investigating these stories, the one constant is the practice of Hazing.  So while some may look back on their High School and College experience with warm memories; many others are haunted by a past steeped in secret sins in the name of fellowship.  Join us today for another installment of Repentance is the Key as we examine the Practice of Hazing as it relates to the Holy Bible and the teaching of Jesus Christ.
