I can't speak for anyone else on the board, but I for one don't hate them for what they believe.  Sure, I got irritated when my Christian friends in elementary and junior high tried to convert me, but we developed a rule that worked really well: I didn't push vegetarianism on them, and they didn't push their conception of God on me. (Of course, they wound up liking vegetarian food when I cooked it, and I like Renaissance art, but quality is quality regardless of ideology.)


There are some people at my school that keep on trying to make me go to their church. I blew up on one of the guys today. I feel really bad but they should take no as an answer and stop trying to convert me. He was saying "You know the bible says that you should not call anybody Father besides your father and God. blah blah. Come to church with me." I finally said, "You know what? Just leave me the Fu*k alone. I tried to be nice by respecting your views, so please respect my views and religion. To be honest, I felt like a jerk but there was no alternative. You would figure that after telling them no three times that it would give them the hint. Some people are just do not care for the private space of other people.


geez, i've never been that pushy even as a rev <lol>

i got a kick out of the fact that "consuming alcoholic beverages" and "abortion" carry the same penalty.  i guess lynchburg, VA is not at all like lynchburg, TN.

Everything negative about this school is complete bull.  The school is not full of religious zealots.  Many people here are just conservative/libertarian.  That does not mean they hate non-Christians or don't drink.  The media gives them a terrible image. 

Additionally, their in-state bar passage rate is second only to UVA.

The school is named "Liberty" for crying outloud...tell them you want liberty, i.e., freedom from religious oppression. lol.

I realize this thread is quite old but even so I couldn't find any of the peculiarities on Liberty's site that people are listing. The only moral clauses I found in their honor code were

1. A clause forbidding porn on campus computers

2. Another saying that students shouldn't abuse alcohol or drugs; it wasn't clear as to what abuse was  by their definition

As far as accreditation goes, I'm not exactly a fan of Liberty's politics but that said the ABA should only be screening for academic standards. As long as what a school is doing is within the confines of the law I don't think the ABA should prohibit it.

That's because most of it is password protected now, Sam. You can verify that by clicking the links on the first few pages of this thread. The list of prohibitions and sactions on page two of this thread is a direct copy and paste.

Regarding individual choice of where to attend law school and ABA accreditation, I totally agree with you. But these people are screaming to be made fun of. It will only do them good by feeding their thirst for persecution.
I could see why they would want to do that but that said am I supposed to just take peoples word for it that these things are on the site? Liberty may deserve to be made fun of a bit but I don't think they deserve to have un-verified information about their school circulated on the internet.

Also, looking over their sexual misconduct clause again I did notice that along with banned actions normally considered sexual harassment it included pre-marital sex. I wonder if that's actually enforced dam that could be awful.

A lot of religious schools have the porn and pre-marital sex clauses (it's on Baylor's honor code too). I don't know how many of them enforce them. I get the idea that some enforce it a lot more than others. I also think that some enforce it in undergrad, but not so much for the law school.

There is another thread about this school somewhere that has a cache from Google listing the male dress code. That was enough for me to believe a lot of the rumors.

I can tell you that I've seen it first-hand before it was password protected, and those items were listed there. Take my word for it or don't; that in no way affects the veracity of it. Just because it's locked down now, doesn't mean it isn't there, or has never been.
I don't think you're lying I just would have liked to see it for myself; oh well I guess either way I won't be able to.
