We all know that veterans are some of the most important and least respected groups of people in this nation.
While civilians often bicker over who is more offended by what kind of cultural appropriation, millions of veterans are more concerned about the far more existential problems of life after combat and simply trying to make ends meet in the civilian world.
While our government’s provisions for those who have served are seriously lacking, we do still provide education for vets, and it’s nice to know that this prominent Christian school is proving to be an excellent choice for those funds to be used.
Faith-based Liberty University has been given a top rating by the Military Times for online and non-traditional schools for veterans on a recent round-up based on a survey of the school as well as student retention rates for military personnel and things like university culture, financial aid, academic quality, and school policies.
“Liberty University is the largest school in our online and nontraditional rankings list with nearly 103,000 students. And while Liberty has a physical campus in Lynchburg, Virginia, the overwhelming majority of its 30,000 veteran, service-member and military-dependent students have opted to attend online,” Military Times’ Rebootcamp reported.
“The university did a better job of retaining both its military and non-military students between 2016 and 2017 than most other online and nontraditional schools that participated in the survey.”
Liberty has a long history of providing quality education to veterans, they noted this week, as the Christian Post reports:
In a statement released Tuesday in response to the news, Liberty noted that they have been in the top ten best schools for veterans since 2011.
Emily Foutz, director of Liberty’s Office of Military Affairs, touted the private academic institution’s support for military personnel, stating “before military support was a best practice in higher education, Liberty has valued and supported our service members.”
“From assistance with setting up their military and veteran benefits to help before, during, and after a deployment, to participation in our military graduate recognition ceremonies, we have one goal — to do everything within our power to help our students achieve their goals,” said Foutz.
Next month, Liberty will hold a “Military Emphasis Week” from Nov. 7-14, which seeks to spread awareness and support for those who serve.
“Once a one-day event on campus, Military Emphasis Week has been expanded to a week-long celebration in order to give greater visibility, support and recognition to our military and veterans,” explained Liberty on its website.
“Events are planned throughout campus during this week to show appreciation for the men and women who have served and are serving this great nation.”
It’s hard not to imagine that a school with a healthy sense of respect for our veterans, a rarity on today’s college campuses, would commit itself to an academic program that allows them to flourish in their post-service education.
While most college campuses are hotbeds of anti-American resentment, Liberty, which bases its school philosophy on Christian values, understands the weight of what it means to serve your country.
Well done, Liberty University, and thank you for taking such good care of our veterans!

LGBTQ Activists Blitz Drew Brees Over Support Of ‘Bring Your Bible To School’ Program. His Response Is Perfect.
LGBTQ activists, or more affectionately, the “alphabet people,” are once again up in a tizzy over a Christian doing what Christians do, supporting things Christians should support. This time the target of their rainbow tinted rage is New Orleans Saints superstar quarterback Drew Brees. Brees is a big supporter of a program that encourages kids to bring their Bibles to school. Brees has openly been a Christian for a long time, so his support of such a program is not at all a shock, but the perpetually offended folks in the homosexual community are nonetheless attacking him over it. Well, Brees has responded and it’s awesome. Here’s a video of Brees talking about his support of the program in question: https://youtu.be/qPFEyeug99g via TheBlaze: Deadspin ran the headline “Drew Brees appears in video for gay conversion therapy sickos, doesn’t understand what the big deal is,” for the story. Others on Twitter accused Brees of being a “bigot” and aligned with a “hateful group.” Brees responded to the online furor through a video on his Instagram trying to clear the air and saying that he was falsely smeared by a deceptive article on the story. https://twitter.com/Amie_Just/status/1169705243216666626 “What I did was I filmed a video recently that was encouraging kids to bring their Bibles to school for national Bring your Bible to School Day,” said Brees. “So I’m not sure why the negativity spread, or why people tried to rope me into certain negativity,” he added. “I do not support any groups that discriminate, or that have their own agendas that are trying to promote inequality. OK? So hopefully that has set the record straight, and we can all move on, because that is not what I stand for.” Unfortunately, you can almost guarantee that such a statement is not at all going…
Pete Buttigieg Adds New Sin To God’s List; It’s A Real Eye Roller
This guy clearly never read the last few verses in the Bible.
Okay, so you know how the Bible, in the book of Revelation warns folks about adding to or taking away from the Bible, the Holy Written Word of God? Apparently, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has never read that portion of Scripture. During a town hall about climate change hosted on CNN, Buttigieg mentioned that skeptics of the science on this issue were committing a grave sin. Yes, that’s right, folks. Apparently the Eleventh Commandment is “Thou Shalt Not Deny Climate Change.” Guess we missed that one on our first read through. via TheBlaze: “Let’s talk in language that is understood across the heartland about faith,” said Buttigieg, an openly gay presidential candidate. “You know, if you believe that God is watching as poison is being belched into the air of creation, and people are being harmed by it — countries are at risk of vanishing in low-lying areas — what do you suppose God thinks of that?” he asked rhetorically. “I bet He thinks it’s messed up,” Buttigieg answered. “And you don’t have to be religious to see the moral dimensions of this, because frankly, every religious and non-religious moral tradition tell us that we have some responsibility of stewardship, some responsibility for taking care of what’s around us,” he continued. https://youtu.be/gq7rwFPC3vU Buttigieg also brought up how not caring about climate change is also an issue of not loving your neighbor. “Not to mention taking care of our neighbor. Eventually it gets to the point where this is less and less about the planet as an abstract thing, and more and more about specific people suffering specific harm because of what we’re doing right now,” Buttigieg said. You know what else God hates, Mr. Buttigieg? People who twist up the meaning of His Word and add their own manmade…
