Liberty University puts an end to the school sponsored Democrat club, saying “We are unable to lend support to a club whose parent organization stands against the moral principles held by the university.” Way to go Liberty University!
A student that chooses to enroll at Liberty University knows exactly where the school stands before they choose to attend. Anyone that spends more than ten minutes on campus will know. I spent four days at Liberty in March and it was quite obvious that the University stands firm on the Word of God and they expect the same from their students.
Liberty University’s Democrat club was formed last October and has only managed to attract thirty members on a campus with 18,000 students. That’s in an election year when the Democrats were enormously successful.
Liberty students are strong in their Christian faith and they know this is in direct conflict with the Democrat party. This explains why only 1 in 600 Liberty students joined the College Democrats.
I applaud Liberty University for taking a stand against the moral depravity represented by the Democrat party’s social platform. We can have our disagreements as Christian’s on the validity of welfare, healthcare reform, the war on terrorism and tax increases, but there should be no room for debate in the Christian community when it comes to the sanctity of marriage and the unborn.
As expected, the news of Liberty University’s new policy banning the Democrat club has liberals screaming about first amendment rights. This argument shows a complete lack of understanding of the Constitution. Liberty University has not violated anyone’s first amendment rights, or any other constitutionally protected rights, by banning the school sponsored democrat club.
In fact, Liberty University is not capable of violating anyone’s Constitutional rights. The Constitution protects our God given rights from being violated by the government, not a private Christian university. Now if a public University, like Southern Cal were to implement the same policy it would be a different story.
Let me know what you think. This should be interesting. But a quick warning… any comments that contain profanity will never be posted. Disagree, but keep it clean.
