So the problem with going to college at a fundamentalist christian school like Bob Jones University that's actively working toward returning America to the 1740s is that there are some super ridiculous rules. For example, you can only watch certain TV shows off-campus like Girls and Breaking Bad and reruns of Real Sex. Just kidding. Those shows are most definitely on the banned list.

Chris Peterman, a student at BJU (insert middle school sense of humor here), claims watching Glee on his computer at an off-campus Starbucks got him in big trouble with the school. So much trouble in fact, that they banned him from graduating by suspending him.

While I think we can all agree that the plot doesn't always makes sense on the show, I doubt that's why it's on their unapproved list. I'm going to take a wild guess here and assume it has something to do with their positive portrayal of LGBT students as well as their openess when it comes to discussing teen sexuality.
