The Deaon of Liberty University Law School says elections don’t matter:

The event we have just witnessed was far more than a general election – it was a referendum on the soul of America. We grieve today like we have lost a friend or a close relative. Millions of Americans looked evil in the eye and adopted it. Some Christian observers called the Democratic Party platform for 2012 a “Romans 1 Platform,” and they were right. Abortion, same-sex marriage, and immorality carried the day.

God is not through with our nation! God calls us to remain faithful, no matter the consequences. We might be a Bonhoeffer in Nazi Germany who never lived to see the fruit of his faithful labor. We might be a Wilberforce in England who saw the fruit of his labor (the abolition of slavery and reformation of morals), but died soon after, never getting the chance to enjoy the results. We might even be a David who stood up against popular opinion and defeated a giant who blasphemed God Almighty.

We have a higher calling than the world. Our calling and our values do not depend on a survey or an election. Whether we are on the verge of revival or are soon to face the death chamber makes no difference in how we respond or how we act. Our obedience is to Christ and to Christ alone!

Not a surprising stand for him to take. His law school teaches his law students to ignore the law — and even counsel clients to break the law — in favor of “God’s Law.” And according to a RICO lawsuit filed in August connecting his law school to the Miller-Jenkins kidnapping case, his law school practices what he preaches.

“His law school teaches his law students to ignore the law — and even counsel clients to break the law — in favor of “God’s Law.””

Is his law school accredited? If so, why? Is there a special enhanced accreditation classification for schools that follow God’s Law?

Well it looks like all the religious radicals got stepped on on Tuesday.
That is a good thing to hear too.
Several of the people down here in my neck of the country were upset. But I figured at least the LGBT people won’t be set back 40 years.
We have fought hard for the rights we were born with and still have to fight for.
All the hate preachers are finally finding out what it is like for things to go to the the fighters and the real believers in GOD.

A law school that teaches there were dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark isn’t much of a law school. They are all just whambulance chasers anyway.

He is a loser. Not a sore loser; just a loser.

“We might be a Bonhoeffer in Nazi Germany”

Oh. Please.

Since they raised it first, I am not violating Godwin’s Law by stating that Bonhoeffer gave his life defying the Christian-Aryan Third Reich, standing up against injustice perpetrated by those who claimed to be God-ordained to exterminate anyone they didn’t like. Bonhoeffer and Niemoller are spinning fast in their graves.

I sure wouldn’t want him or any lawyer who graduated from his “law school” representing ME in court!

There is an awesome bit in the Miller lawsuit when they listed the people they are suing. It says “Liberty University – a purported educational institution”

They are accredited. But that doesn’t mean their graduates are SUCCESSFUL lawyers.
Regent U is trying to game Washington, D.C by having it’s graduates get jobs and put themselves in higher and higher levels of influential positions there. They are really trying to have SCOTUS be who they think will favor their Christian ideals.
Disregarding the fact that SCOTUS has only two Jewish people on it. The rest ARE Christian.

The ADF…oh s’cuse me, the AACD, Alliance Against Christian Defamation: takes on cases involving Christians getting in trouble for their anti gay activities just about exclusively.

It seems that the client focus is SO narrow, that it’s a wonder this law group can stay afloat.
Pretty much all of their cases have been lost and their complaint is because of activist judges, or homosexuals being highly placed and influential in the outcomes.
As I said, their ONLY cases always have something to do with gay people and nothing else.
And they do a work that involves filing briefs, or demanding some kind of stays or court trials without video.
They sued when they found out that Walker’s court had used part of the 8 trial in a lecture, which they said exposed witnesses that shouldn’t have been.
They truly strain at gnats sometimes.
But they almost never win. What usually happens is they just delay the inevitable until they think no one will notice what’s actually happened.

Actually, there are no Evangelical Christians on the Supreme Court, or even any mainline Christians. No Protestants at all.

All are either Jewish (Ginsberg, Breyer, Kagan) or Roman Catholic (Roberts, Scalia, Kennedy, Alito, Thomas, Sotomayor).

You’re right Tim, that’s why Pat Robertson wants to replace SCOTUS with the fundamentalist kind.

I have no problem with him living his own life as his religious interpretation guides him but I have a huge problem with him attempting to impose his personal religious beliefs on me. By the way is he wearing mixed fibers, stone the bastard.

When Thomas first got first got unto the SCOTUS, wasn’t he a Charmismatic Episcopalian (or something like that)?
