Liberty University Takes a Stand Against Democrats

with 7 comments

The Liberty University Bookstore is ready for all students' academic needs

In a bold move, Jerry Falwell and Liberty University have decided to rid the Liberty University Campus of the Young Democrats because of the immoral views of their parent organization.  The Liberty University Young Democrats had been on double secret probation since they had worked on the Obama campaign beginning in October of last year.  The Liberty Democrats are now prohibited from using the university name, advertising their events on campus, or using campus facilities.

Liberty University is an amazing place.   Whether you wish to study creation sciences, religion, theology, or a couple dozen other majors students can study knowing that they are in a moral environment.  Whether you’re studying in their library of non-banned books, attending prayer services, or just sitting out on campus with your friends waiting on the rapture, you know that you’re at a very special place.  College can be a confusing time in a young adults life when their beliefs are challenged by new experiences and ideas.   Fortunately, at Liberty, students are protected from those strange new ideas.

Is a university really the best place for political discussion anyway?  It seems to me, when it is time to pay my daughter’s college tuition, I don’t want to be wasting it on those kind of discussions.   As long as I’m paying her bills, I will expect her to vote the way I tell her too.  I’m not footing the bill for her to question my beliefs.   She can do that when she’s in her forties.

If the Democrats are so upset about this, they should try reorganizing themsleves as the Young Socialist Democrats and see if that helps.  Anyway, I wish the students on both sides of this debate all the best.   Remember the Liberty University rule–If your roommate is raptured, you get straight A’s for the semester.

  1. Liberty University really seems a swell place to learn to live a life without prejudice. Say, Nate, do you think you will be raptured? And if so, when? Will you continue to blog if that happens? Sorry for so many questions! I hope I had the answers to everything without having to rely on religion.

  2. Lola, there is a story on this blog about my plans for this rapture. Basically a web service is allowing me to send “I told you so” letters to a whole lot of liberals. The service is called You’ve Been Left Behind. I most certainly will be raptured. That’s why I don’t bother paying down my credit card balance.

  3. So when exactly do you want you child to start acting like a responsible adult? apparently as you said above, not until their late forties when you allow them to have thoughts and beliefs of their own. College is about learning more than what is thought inside a classroom, but learning about ones self. Allow your beliefs to be tested and debated, allow this time of learning to strengthen your beliefs or to help you find the ones that are more suited for you. The face that this school is silencing the voice of its students just because they have a different view and opinions of issues just proves how closed minded and discriminative their teachings are. Instead of letting the students grow and learn about themselves, they are indoctrinating one generation after another. If you are unable to respect those of different minds, including your children (as you said you are forcing them to share your beliefs with a fear tactic of possibly cutting off funds), you should ask your self if you are truly honoring your neighbor. Forcing others to follow the doctrine of your beliefs is morally wrong. If you do not believe this is true then would you then support Islamic extremists in there battle to do just the same thing?

  4. Of course I don’t support Islamic extremists. College is a time when students are supposed to learn. You don’t learn by preaching your own beliefs, you learn by listening to others’ beliefs.

  5. I think it’s fine for Liberty University to ban Democrats. Democrats shouldn’t be going there anyway. I just think that all private universities that run more liberal should be able to ban Republicans, too. There’s no reason to have these different sets of ideas intermingling like this. Next thing you know Democrats and Republicans could start dating and even maybe marry. We could end up with a nation of children who looks like a combination of James Carville and Mary Matlin and I don’t think anyone wants that.
