Skip to comments.LU officials meet with College Democrats - (The Left Just Lie)
Posted on 05/31/2009 12:16:02 PM PDT by blueyon
Liberty University officials met with three members of the College Democrats and its staff sponsor on Wednesday to review actions taken in the controversy that has garnered national media attention in the last week. At the crux of the discussion were statements made to the press by the clubs staff sponsor statements the administration says did not explain the situation in enough context for the media to report accurately on the action taken by LU officials to drop endorsement of the group as a Liberty University club.
At the meeting, LU officials urged the sponsor to issue a public apology based on information given to the press implying that LU had banned the Democrat Club and that the club could not meet on campus, when in fact it was given full rights to meet on campus just a few days earlier.

Not to change the subject, but Ben Stein did an EXCELLENT job of giving this year’s commencement speech at Liberty.
If anyone is interested, it can be seen at http://www.liberty.edu/faithservice/index.cfm?PID=9002
Be sure to view the “Full Service”. Ben comes on at about 25:00, and much of what he talks about is creationism.
Very worthwhile, and a very good message!
I’m starting a Masters with LU this fall and have called them to let them know I support the school whole heartedly. It’s good to know that they’re sticking to their mortal foundation. Too bad my own Church’s universitys won’t do that (I’m Catholic).
I love Liberty. As a parent, I felt safer that our daughter went there. Good luck with your masters!!! Saw Ben Stein this morning, he was wonderful.
Mountain out of a molehill.
As a former resident of Long Island, VA and a guy whose (HOT) girlfriend attends Liberty...had you not posted the story here on a website monitored by Liberal kooks nationwide, I doubt the majority of them would’ve ever heard of it.

Sorry to disagree with you but I posted this because Our nonwonderful gov. Tim Kaine and also the next want-to-be gov Terry McAuliffe where out campaigning and condemning Liberty as part of their stir up the left campaigning. Hampton roads paper and Richmond times covered it (and of course DID NOT have the facts straight at all).
Then Lauren Wolfe Former President, College Democrats of America Board of Directors, CDAAA”” started a campaign against Liberty (To all college democrats)

Anyway this is what I wrote them...
I was sorry to hear how you are distorting the truth about what happened with the democratic group at Liberty University. I can only assume you are trying to make a name for yourself by telling people only 1/2 of a story. That is deceptive to say the least. If you knew your bible, you would know that the snake twisted the truth in the garden of Eden to get Eve to eat of its fruit. This is not how one builds credibility as it can come back on you one day.
Here is where you can read what Liberty has to say about it (if you dare).
The group can still meet at Liberty it just can not use Libertys name as part of the groups name. That is totally different for the story you are telling people.
If your aim is about fairness at a school, you would complain about schools that WILL NOT let pro-life groups even have a group let alone meet at a school. Your double standard is to pathetic.
So truly this has some leggs to it.....
