Liberty University, the college founded by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell, has banned the College Democrats from campus.
I’m having flashbacks to all those liberal college protests at Berkeley where right wingers like Shawn Steel and Jon Fleischman rail against the “intolerance of the left.”Â Wonder what either of them would say about this.Â From the story:
According to the Lynchburg News & Advance, the school decided a week ago the organization “stood against the moral principles” held by the school and therefore could no longer be sanctioned.
Maria Childress, the staff adviser to the club, told the paper the school â€” which opposes abortion rights and gay marriage â€” had issues with the Democratic Party platform.
Childress says she was told by Mark Hine, the vice president of student affairs, that “‘You can’t be a Democrat and be a Christian and be a university representative.’”
I wonder what they are afraid of?Â There are many in OC who believe Democrats oppose freedom and liberty at every turn.Â I wonder how they can resolve this action?
