Liberty University, the brainchild of that outstanding paragon of tolerance, the late Rev. Jerry Falwell, demonstrates that Christofascism is alive and well in Virginia which will be changing its vacation visitors slogan from "Virginia is for lovers" to "Virginia is for Talibangelicals". From the complete story at CBS News:
Liberty University in Lynchbyrg, Va., has revoked its recognition of the campus Democratic Party club because, according to a university official, the club's "parent organization stands against the moral principles held by Liberty."Constraint University has had a College Republicanastycals club for years. The College Democrats club formed last year to support Barack Obama in his presidential campaign. The club wishes to continue for students who are members of the Democratic Party.
In a May 15 e-mail to the student group, Liberty Vice President for Student Affairs Mark Hine said the club must end its affiliation with University. The group can no longer use Liberty's name, logo, or seal for its publications, Web sites, Facebook page, Twitter account or anything else.
"The Democratic Party platform is contrary to the mission of LU and to Christian doctrine (supports abortion, federal funding of abortion, advocates repeal of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, promotes the 'LGBT' agenda, Hate Crimes, which include sexual orientation and gender identity, socialism, etc)," Hine wrote in the e-mail to the LU College Democrats.
So the Talibangelicals at Constraint University have decided that the student Democrats club can not be associated with the University because the Democratic Party supports a woman's right to make her own decisions about her own body, supports the notion that everyone deserves equal protection under the law, and thinks that hate crimes should be treated as the crime against society that they are.. The Talibangelicals demand the right to continue committing hate crimes against all who refuse to conform to their superior way of life.
This is not really surprising since Jesus Christ taught that one should hate anyone who doesn't agree with you on every little detail of existence. He also taught that anyone even slightly different from yourself should be beaten with extreme prejudice. [What? He didn't teach that? He taught the opposite of that? So you're saying they are actually violating Christ's teachings? They are hypocrites? Oh.] Nevermind.
It seems the Talibangelical hypocrites at Constraint University need a reminder of what Liberty actually means.
