In a letter written to Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, two Democratic congressmen, Andy Levin and Jamie Raskin, are outraged that Liberty University, a Christian university, would set Christian standards for its student body. Oh, the thought of it!
As summarized in an article on the Stream, “The lawmakers accused her of turning a blind eye to university campuses that violate Executive Order 13864, a directive that threatens to withhold federal funding on college and university campuses that censor free speech.”
And what, pray tell, are some of Liberty’s violations?
Levin and Raskin write, “Liberty reportedly bans LGBTQ relationships and places content restrictions on media students can view.”
More specifically, quoting Liberty policy directly, “Sexual relations outside of a biblically ordained marriage between a natural-born man and a natural-born woman are not permissible at Liberty University.”
Oh, the horror! Oh, the shame! Oh, the outrage!
A Christian university requires its students to uphold Christian morality. A private university that looks to the Bible for moral and spiritual guidance requires its students to live by biblical standards.
They probably forbid drunkenness and illicit drug use as well.
How unthinkable! How monstrous! How restrictive!
That would be like Yeshiva University forbidding its students from eating shrimp and lobster on campus.
