    The fact that it's in most cases not quite as extreme as at Liberty doesn't justify it. I'd like to think that we hold real schools to a higher standard.

    My question was about whether the OP was really interested in the broader issues mentioned, "the politicization of educational institutions".

    If the OP really was, wouldn't there be some mention of the real problem on faculties nationwide, instead of mention of an EXTRA-CURRICULAR club at a private university ?

    That was Regent Law school.

    Similar concept.

    This is a step backward for this so-called Christian university.
    Unless one considers intolerance and narrow mindedness as positive steps..
    Not that I agree with either side on issues...I hope our public universities do not follow suit...some may of course, to an extent...

    Re: Liberty University Bans Democrat Club

    Is it even a accredited school?

    They require 'creation' studies for biology majors.

    See article

    The sad part there is the person teaching how bad evolution is does not understand it.

    this of course leads to the question...do we really care what happens at Fruitcake U?

    If UC Berkeley banned the campus Republicans, then you'd have a story.

    This one has about as much credibility as: "Evangelical pseudo-college gives devil the boot."

How can you just outright ban a Democrat club on these social fringe issues? It would be like banning the GOP club because you don't support war. As if the GOP never does anything "unchristian".
    Haven't you been to a uni? They are already very political, at least in the humanities, although usually it is leftist stuff being put out. The amount of feminist, Marxist, Post-modernist garbage you have to wade through just to do basic things like history is absurd.

    Half my lecturers seem to be outspoken leftists and there are no outspoken traditionalists or conservatives to me knowledge. And when you get to the clubs there is are at least two labour clubs, almost all the student council candidates seem to be leftists and such. Sometimes I feel like asking them how they feel about the high Tory vote.
