Liberty sets the record straight

25 May

Much has been said about the recent Liberty University decision to “ban the campus Democratic club.”  Terry McAuliffe and Tim Kaine both tried to seize on this as a campaign issue.

My take all along was that it was certainly within Liberty’s rights to ban any club they thought did not fit their message and their philosophies.  But that it would have been best to just say that the club was not sanctioned and could not carry the official Liberty University name.

Turns out, that’s exactly what they did.  Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. released a statement on the University website.

The University has not banned Democrats from campus. Nor has the Democrat club been banned from meeting. And, never has the University or its’ officials said that a person cannot be a Christian and a Democrat. Sorry for those who want to run with these titillating soundbites, but these are the facts.

Read the statement.

Now we can wait and see if McAuliffe and the DNC amend their statements.
