Student Infiltrates Liberty University to Write Exposť and Discovers Intolerance...From the Left
NewsBusters ^ | April 22, 2009 | P.J. Gladnick

This is just too funny! A liberal Ivy League student decides to enroll at Jerry Falwell's Liberty University in Virgina and write a book exposé (The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at America's Holiest University) supposedly showing the intolerance that must be there, or so he thought. The liberal student, however, was surprised to find little of the expected intolerance but is now finding plenty of it from the left because his book was not an outright condemnation of Liberty University nor of Jerry Falwell whom he met during his semester there. An AP story by Eric Tucker sets the scene:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Kevin Roose managed to blend in during his single semester at Liberty University, attending lectures on the myth of evolution and the sin of homosexuality, and joining fellow students on a mission trip to evangelize partyers on spring break.

Roose had transferred to the Virginia campus from Brown University in Providence, a famously liberal member of the Ivy League. His Liberty classmates knew about the switch, but he kept something more important hidden: He planned to write a book about his experience at the school founded by fundamentalist preacher Jerry Falwell.

At least the liberal student did discover intolerance...from the left. I hope his next book will be about listening to Rush Limbaugh every day for a couple of months. If he writes anything the least bit favorable about El Rushbo, then he can expect a firestorm of hate from the Left.

You might find this of interest. Is there a Lutheran version of Liberty University?

Interesting that he accurately reported what he found; it speaks well for true intellectual curiosity. That’s a mark of true intelligence, and is remarkably rare even in the Ivy League...

What do you mean, “even”?

Wow.

What he did was pretty amazing, really. He actually confronted an alien (to him) culture, and drew his own conclusions from it.

After observing this stuff for years, I’ve reached the conclusion that leftism is easy. It’s an emotional, childlike outlook on life. People on the right seem to spend more time contemplating the issues.

This will probably surprise many non-believers, but the same can be said for Christians. As both a non-believer and a believer in Christ, I’ve reached the conclusion that most Christians are far, far more thoughtful than non-believers assume. Attend a Bible study sometime if you disagree. You might be surprised.

Wisconsin Lutheran College is a reasonably conservative Lutheran school.

Since they leave no room for God, the Left are always reduced to hatred because true love is a concept to which they cannot connect.

Leftism is a personality disorder and self-hatred. Self-hatred is just as destructive as hate. Witness Fred Phelps, Michael Crook, or any moonbat, they are so consumed with self-hate.

Well stated and worth repeating
