Earth to Liberty U: "You chose poorly"

Liberty University is one of those places where the inmates run the asylum. In all my dealings with their so-called science faculty, which thankfully have been rare, the comment I heard most frequently was a disparaging reference to other Christian schools as being "Christian in name only." This would be any other Christian school, no matter how conservative, that did not demand a YEC view. Calvin College, Grove City, Wheaton—CINOs one and all according to chowderheads on Liberty's science faculty.

Further evidence for their ineptitude is their upcoming conference called "The Awakening." The purpose of this conference, according to this CNN article, is to "'empower a new revolution' around issues of faith and core social values."

Also, according to Liberty's Press Release:

Among the topics addressed during the two-day conference at the Lynchburg, Virginia school include "abortion, the economy, religious liberty, marriage and homosexuality, Sharia Law, the Middle East, Human Sex Trafficking, Reaching Minority Communities and Using New Media and Technology to Power a Movement."

Well they got the perfect headliner, as least as much as the marriage topic is concerned. Newt Gingrich has been married three times. He certainly qualifies a world expert on marriage and infidelity. Who better to headline a conference on core values at a "Christian" university than an adulterer?

It's like the yahoos at Liberty woke up and asked themselves: what can we do today to be an utter embarrassment to the Christian community? I know--we'll bring Newt Gingrich into to discuss family values! That's assuming, of course, Ted Haggard is already booked!

  1. According to the schedule, Newt's only appearance will be at the Leadership Luncheon. It doesn't say what he will be talking about specifically.

    Where did you learn that Newt would be discussing family values or heading up the topic of marriage?
