I would like a definition of these nuts mean by "moral": hate thy neighbor, I guess? Reject anyone who is perceived as different?

Actually, I think the act is a timid, cowardly one. It says that the administration of the university is afraid that their students and their views cannot stand up to debate. I am not surprised at Libertyís actions though. Their fear for their students is justified. Young people, with their openness, confidence, and curiosity are naturally drawn to liberal positions. Rather than fearing or hating a Muslim, a homosexual, or an immigrant they are more likely to engage with them, and may change from the experience. In contrast, conservatism is a timid philosophy of the fearful Conservatives see boogey men everywhere. Liberals see the possibilities in action and embrace it while conservatives see the risks and shrink back to the familiar. By action I mean real new, initiatives. Fear reactions donít count as progress. Older people, like the universityís administration are more fearful and suspicious of anything new, so there is a trend towards conservatism as people age, but the students at Liberty are vulnerable. I understand why the university did what they did and liberal universities donít need to.

It is sad to see that so many people don't understand that Christians are not fearful and suspicious but people who have looked into God's law of freedom and we are free indeed. We also don't hate but love you in spite of our differences and wish you well.

Democracy is anathema to the theocracy desired by these fringe 'universities'.

So why don't you stand up for gay people and let them get married? Why let the 'bad' Christians try to get same-sex marriage banned?

"Universities" such as this one are not about education or the free exchange of ideas. Their sole purpose is to create theocrats to bring down the US Constitution and impose a theocracy.

its a stupid concept which teaches stupid people false knowledge. these people are true mosters, if they could they would cause another crusade and probably take part in it, why should anybody see them as normal its not normal to exist in bliss and excluded from truth. the worlds not a preety place its a planet filled with injustices and prejudices, why teach lies only for those kids to graduate and kill themselves when they realize the truth. why do they have more power than the citizens why are they trying to cause evil. christianity was built on a pack of lies written by schitofrantic people. all religion is evil if you believe it word for word and actually try to live by it. in deuteronomy it says i can have slaves. what justice allows slavery.

This brief discussion is VERY pertinent to the topic. Give it a listen. It's well worth the minutes.

I think LU will be liberal in a few more years. Right now it is moderate and that's a stretch. The only schools that started out with strong convictions and academics were the Ivy Leauge schools.(Look at the now). I know that Wake Forrest is Southern Baptist as Baylor and Duke has a Divinity School.

Anyone ever really look into the Falwell bunch...last I heard the family wasn't exactly ever socially acceptable anyway. Old Jerry, aka snake oil salesman, just found another way to make a buck off of the gullible. It's a shame he had to bring his faux morals to Lynchburg.
