GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba – An unnamed Guantanamo Bay detainee offered relocation to an Adventist educational institution in Austria has refused the offer due to what he claims are “oppressive living conditions” at Bogenhofen Seminary.
In this most recent snag to President Barack Obama’s push to close the detention facility, the prisoner said that despite the beautiful pictures of the Austrian campus, he had heard far too much about the regimented discipline of Bogenhofen to take the school’s administrators up on their offer. He said he would rather take his chances waiting on something better to come up.
Bogenhofen, located in the Innviertel region of Upper Austria is widely known as one of the strictest schools in western Adventism. The prisoner said that although he looked forward to leaving Guantanamo Bay, he was looking for freedom and not another form of incarceration. He added that prolonged study of systematic theology wasn’t exactly on his bucket list, either.
