I thought, and properly so, that ACU went to a lot of trouble to get
the feds to recognize ACU as an "integral agency of the church".
As I recall, the school's history shows that there never was a
marriage, and hence could not have been a divorce.
Yet, ACU, and other similar schools, still enjoy their "integral
agency of the churches of Christ" status.
