More controversy surrounding Baylor University and the cult of Aqua Buddha

From Fox News:

U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul is threatening to sue a magazine following a report that alleges he kidnapped a female friend and tried to force her to smoke marijuana as a college student at Baylor University.

That sentence contains its own rebuttal.  There is no marijuana at Baylor University.  Or anywhere else within 25 miles of Jerusalem On The Brazos
GQ Magazine published a report Monday anonymously quoting a woman who claimed Paul and another man came to her house, blindfolded her, and tied her up before trying to force her to "take bong hits" in 1983 when the three were students at Baylor University in Waco, Texas.

Seriously.  Baylor.  Bong hits.  That does not compute. 

The report also alleges that Paul, who is running as the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Kentucky, was part of a secret society called the NoZe Brotherhood, which "existed to torment the Baylor administration" through "pranks" and its student-run satirical newspaper.

Paul told Fox News that he "categorically" denies the kidnapping allegation. "This stuff is just outrageous and ridiculous. No, I never was involved with kidnapping. No, I never was involved with forcibly drugging people," he said.

The report continues:

The woman, quoted in GQ, told the magazine that Paul and another member of the brotherhood drove her to a creek after she refused to smoke marijuana and forced her to worship an "Aqua Buddha."

"They told me their god was 'Aqua Buddha' and that I needed to bow down and worship him," the woman reportedly told the magazine. "They blindfolded me and made me bow down to 'Aqua Buddha' in the creek. I had to say, 'I worship you Aqua Buddha, I worship you.'

The picture of Aqua Buddha came from here.

Uh huh. . . .
Let's follow the woman accuser and HER money trail and see where it leads. Betcha it goes back to some liberal/progressive/DemonRat party that doesn't want Paul in power.

Somneone's getting desperate. The story is just SOOO rediculous.

the Baylor ladies basketball team is top notch, plus (a bonus) they're all heterosexual virgins.

I must admit, the NoZe Brotherhood is the "Skull and Bones" of Baylor. But instead of wearing hooded cloaks and chanting by candlelight on top of a human skull, it's more "guys in fake Groucho glasses with the big fake noses". They are well known for painting the greenish statue of Judge Baylor... but just the nose. And they paint it a pinkish hue.

They are also known for wearing loud plaid shorts, dinner jackets with matching fake beards... and drinking (gasp), dancing (shriek), maybe even smoking pot (faint) - - and even worshiping the aqua Buddha seems not too far out of line for the NoZes. However, kidnapping and forcible pot smoking seems a bit out of line for the NoZes...

I visited friends in 1983 at Baylor and remember wishing I could be one of Rand's NoZe Brothers. To do some of this:
and this:
and finally this:

OK. Maybe Rand did kidnap that girl... ;-)

Now I could see this bong hitting kidnapping ending up in a creek tragedy happening just down the road at that heathen stateuniversity in Austin where getting high and going to a creek was part of the cricculum in the early 80's.

What I want to know is if she was stoned by the time she made it to the creek.
