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.

“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.

“Disregarding the fact that SCOTUS has only two Jewish people on it. The rest ARE Christian.”

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)?

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

From the Inside: Focus on the Family’s “Love Won Out”

On February 10, I attended an all-day “Love Won Out” ex-gay conference in Phoenix, put on by Focus on the Family and Exodus International. In this series of reports, I talk about what I learned there: the people who go to these conferences, the things that they hear, and what this all means for them, their families and for the rest of us.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship. In this report, we will take you step by step into the study to see whether the claims are true.

The FRC’s Briefs Are Showing

Tony Perkins’ Family Research Council submitted an Amicus Brief to the Maryland Court of Appeals as that court prepared to consider the issue of gay marriage. We examine just one small section of that brief to reveal the junk science and fraudulent claims of the Family “Research” Council.

Daniel Fetty Doesn’t Count
