AFA has been very careful not to call their product "a degree".
Everything I have seen calls it a "credential". The universities, such
as Baylor, Nova Southeastern, Central Michigan, and Ball State, can
certainly call their offering a degree.

Maybe before any more discussion goes on, we ought to all request and
read the AFA form and at least one of the college catalogs which offers
the "degree", and then take up the debate again.
