Going to Liberty College this fall? Are you a Democrat?

If so, you're totally fucked.

In another round of religious nutjobs doing stuff to discredit themselves while administering irrational ultraconservative rules that would scare the bejeezus (pun intended) out of any normal human being, Liberty College decided yesterday that the College Democrats' beliefs are not conducive to to the Liberty way of life, and thus the organization is forbidden to assemble on school grounds.

Does anyone else think this is epically hilarious that the name of the college is Liberty, and they are rescinding an organization's recognition at the university?
"The Democratic Party platform is contrary to the mission of LU and to Christian doctrine (supports abortion, federal funding of abortion, advocates repeal of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, promotes the 'LGBT' agenda, Hate Crimes, which include sexual orientation and gender identity, socialism, etc)," Hine wrote in the e-mail to the LU College Democrats.
Ah, yes. The always-concrete argument that Democrats are baby Jesus hatin' abortionist sodomites who think women should be more than just a baby-churner-outer (only under the sacrament of marriage, of course) and conduct hate crimes on all the fetuses, straight parents and combustible engines in this here one nation under God.

Of course, when you're a private Christian university, you don't have to worry about that whole civil liberties thing. Which is why they maintain a pretty consistent clientele.

This is, after all, the same university that was founded by a damned lunatic who had some really intelligent, tolerant and Christian things to say. Some of my favorites include:
“AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals”

“[homosexuals are] brute beasts...part of a vile and satanic system [that] will be utterly annihilated, and there will be a celebration in heaven.”

"I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we won't have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!"

"You've got to kill the terrorists before the killing stops. And I'm for the president to chase them all over the world. If it takes 10 years, blow them all away in the name of the Lord."
Yep, great guy that Falwell. And his university, in his rather permanent absence, is still hitting the ground running in that ol' Falwell way.

Somewhere, the Purple Teletubby is laughing at all of this. And hopefully pissing on Falwell's grave.
