    I've met Christians who have accused the GOP of being "unchristian" and have voted against them for that reason, or not voted at all. I don't see why one group deserves to be banned from campus while the other is supported. It shows politico-religious bias to a sick degree.

    I don't see how banning any kind of political discourse about one's nation is a good thing, especially in universities that are supposed to be about learning facts about many different areas. Liberty University is essentially grooming the campus to vote Republican and to me that amounts to political interference, something that the church is not supposed to be doing.

    Should we now have "Republican Universities" and "Democratic Universities"? Forget which school has the best program, let's just enroll based on which party they like.
    I agree with most of what you said but I would say that Universities/Colleges should above all teach the student how to think rather than just alone "learning facts about many different areas." not that learning facts is bad.

    Left leaning does not mean it is taking away the rights of people.

    Again, can you tell me a "left-leaning" college that has BANNED the Republican clubs like Liberty did? If not, your assertion that left-leaning is equated to taking away liberties is irrelevant, unlike this hypocritical named school such as Liberty University.

    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.
    And can you show me in the U.S. where left-leaning universities have BANNED the Republican clubs like this abomination of a university has with the Democratic Club?

    And before someone says they are a private school and have the right to ban whatever club they want, I am willing to be they couldn't ban an African American club.

    Can you show me why I have to? He objected to politics in unis and I responded to that.

    Well you seem to like to compare the Liberty University to others and there simply isn't no comparison.

    Liberty University is restricting freedoms by banning the Democratic club, and other universities are not banning the Republican club.

    There is no comparison, Liberty University is anything but Liberty.

    No, I responded to something Orius said, you are making leaps.

    Yes, you responded that you felt universities were political, yet they haven't banned clubs due to political views. However, this unfit Liberty University has.

    Again no comparison.

    You are right, there is no comparison.

    What happens to an extra curricular club is completely irrelevant when contrasted with a real problem like the systemic leftism of faculty in State schools across the nation.

    Conservatives having trouble getting tenure is a problem.

    Some club ? Not even worth notice.
