You can't even adopt or put a child up for adoption.

I think their career services website is scarier than their reprimand policies.  The major content there is to 'form a network'.

Haha, I love the circular reasoning Bible quote: "But we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully. -Timothy 1:8"

Thanks Timothy!  Keep us updated!


it's not circular reasoning. 

the greek 'nomos' translates directly as 'law' or 'rule of law' and the greek 'nomimos' which some translate as 'lawfully' has the connotation of 'used properly' or 'used as the law intended'

therefore the correct translation would be 'the law is good when it is used properly'

because liberty misuses it does not mean that it has no value

That's what I assumed it meant. Liberty is probably one of those places like Regent and Ave Maria, of which are trying to breed the next generation of FS lawyers.

It is not circular when nomos is translated as "properly"; it is circular when used in the way that Liberty has translated it.  There is a purpose to their translation, and as with all translations it is not innocent or "literal"

i totally agree, the purpose of their translation is to use it as a club of sorts.  i dont believe it is an innocent translation.

thats what irks me the most, and what i have been fighting for years and years -- the entirety of the christian faith boiled down to a rulebook or a to-do list.  and usually improprerly boiled down, to boot.

The school is probably thinking "Holy Mary, Jesus, and Joseph. The website is overloading because people keep on entering our website. We made it!!!!" I wonder what other law schools think of Regent for example NYU.

Wow - they have an entire infraction category that deals exclusively with pronography:

"D. PORNOGRAPHY
Involvement with pornographic, erotic, obscene, indecent, or other similarly offensive
materials, expressions, or conduct is inconsistent with the Honor Code and the principles
of the Christian faith. It is a serious offense that may result in sanctions including, in
appropriate cases, termination from law school employment, immediate suspension or
dismissal from the law school as well as prosecution pursuant to the law.
Students must avoid involvement with pornography. They must also understand that use
of the Liberty University owned and operated computing network to obtain or distribute
pornographic material constitutes an inappropriate use of the computer network."

My computer would need a MAJOR overhaul if I were to ever attend Liberty...  ;)

So... we should play a game.  Which of the infractions would be the first you would break if u went to Liberty?  I would say coming home past 2AM, but i'm sure there's no night life around...

Dude, your avator would be enough for expulsion or complete damnation to hell. The rule I would probably be:
1) Music Code Violation (I do not like Rock but I would bump MEGA DEATH or Slayer!!! just to piss them off)
2)Association with those consuming alcohol. I would get a fine every sunday because I go to Catholic mass and they serve the holy wine.

I'm pretty sure simply BEING Catholic is an infranction worthy offence as far as they are concerned.
