      ―I think that there's a perception sometimes in
      the world that if you're very involved in any sort
      of academic pursuit that religion has to fall by
      the wayside. But the whole atmosphere of BYU
      and our teachers and most certainly, Dr.
      Bridgewater, just proves that completely wrong,
      that people of great faith do pursue very
      rigorous endeavors.‖
