As to the consequences — we also take for granted that these were explained and understood before the original commitment was made. Should there be some recourse? Of course. But whatever are the ultimate consequences — even after recourse — they do not invalidate the original commitment and his swearing to it.

If there were such a thing as an Episcopal university, (though I think there is actually one in Tennessee), the only violation of its honor code might be not being able to handle yourself at sherry hour. My tradition looks far more kindly on secular ethical norms; we even pride ourselves on being worldly folks and socially “normal” at the same time we're devoted to walking spiritual paths. BYU's code is far stricter than any we would ever discuss, much less enforce.
