    Re: Liberty University Bans Democrat Club

    We still talking about Liberty "University"??

    Have they banned the Harry Potter Book club?

    How do Liberty pre-med students score on their MCATs?? Do they wonder why there are no questions on dinosaurs?

    Anti-discrimination is not political, it is STANDARD for ALL clubs.

    But then I can why you as a conservative would love discrimination.

    Anti-discrimination is the school policy at Wilmington, just as the school policies of LU are rooted in Christian ethics.

    If the Democrat club was offered the option to sign a release @ LU saying that they would renounce their positions on abortion, marriage, etc... refused, and were booted; what gripe would you have?

    Note: the policies of *anti-discrimination were being questioned by the college Republicans not the *right to freely discriminate.

    Yeah because anti-discirmination is the same as abandoning ALL your beleifs, give me a break.
    That's like saying drug use or alcohol use policies at a university are political. They aren't.

    It's not even CLOSE to being the same and you know it. The loony right is at it again.

    I would have put the quotation marks around the word "liberty."



    They certainly were within their rights to ban the Democratic club, but by doing so, they made the name of the university ("Liberty") a misnomer.

    A private school created by a radical right wing bigot banning anything left wing? Why are we discussing this again? Let them do what they want. They support the claim that a visible percentage of the Republican party is made up of people trained to hate anything the bible disapproves of. Let all the defenders of this stupidity come at me.

    Re: Liberty University Bans Democrat Club

    news article:

    Liberty University officials insisted Friday that they revoked recognition of the College Democrats club for religious reasons and not political ones, and they weren’t trying to stifle free speech.

    Politicians, including Gov. Timothy M. Kaine, urged the private school to reconsider. Using the letterhead of the Democratic National Committee, of which Kaine is chairman, he asked the school “to reverse this attack on the liberty of its students.”

    LU chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. said the political club’s standing wouldn’t be restored, however, because the club supports Democratic candidates who are pro-choice on abortion.

For the most part, Conservative thinking (not all mind you. there are some very good conservative scholars whom I respect) is close minded and myopic.
    So university professors are overwhelmingly liberal because liberals are smart and conservatives are stupid. Got it.

    Again, left-leaning does not mean they are taking away rights.
    Who did something illegal? This isn't a legal issue.

    RightinNYC already provided you with several examples.

    Further, I think you should check your own jargon, as it is not "illegal" for a private university to ban any and every club from its grounds.

    Also, the OP was decrying the "politicization of educational institutions" , and an extra curricular club is inherently not part of the institution.

    Fine let Liberty do what ever they want to do and watch their ranking fall down into the pits.
