Liberty University Ranked Among Best “Online and Non-Traditional Schools” for Veterans

A school with a healthy sense of respect for our veterans is a rarity among today’s college campuses.

Published

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!

Argentine Photographer Captures INCREDIBLE Image of Christ-Like Cloud

It cannot be denied that our world is in the midst of turmoil unlike anything we’ve seen in the past. From Birmingham to Beijing, we are seeing unprecedented poverty, crime, hate, violence, war, famine….you name it.  Combine these issues with a mainstream media who is salivating at the chance to rile us up for ratings and money, and the world becomes a downright scary place. Where do we turn when the world seems to shun us?  For some, the answers lie in the bottom of a bottle.  For others, it’s self-harm or outward violence. For many, however, their faith is their rock.  They turn to the religious world for answers to the questions that plague us today, and, often, they discover signs of encouragement. Such is the case today in Argentina. Monica Aramayo was in San Salvador de Jujuy in Argentina when she noticed the holy figure shining through the thick clouds Social media user Mariela Romano said: “The Lord will soon come for us all and we should be ready. While another said: “Thanks for the image that allows us to keep on our path and have a better hope for tomorrow.” The photo has to be seen to be believed. https://twitter.com/faithdefender/status/1128809009153097728 The pose and grand scale of the image has reminded many observers of the famous Christ The Redeemer statue in Brazil. https://twitter.com/OtravelAI/status/1082513665700507648 And while the cloud formation certainly isn’t going to change the minds of the unfaithful, it does provide us all with a reminder that we are loved, and we must remain harmonious with one another on this turbulent little space rock.

Former Pope Blames ‘Swingin’ Sixties’ for Catholic Church’s Cesspool of Pedophilia

The Catholic Church is again attempting to blame their rampant pedophilia on the outside world.

Published

Pope Benedict

The high pontiffs of the Catholic Church would make fantastic dodgeball players. Given just how well they’ve avoided taking the blame for, or properly reacting to, the disturbing prevalence of pedophilia among their ranks, there is little doubt that these purposefully-ignorant would be able to dodge just about anything. The problem is obtuse, obvious, and ostensibly disgusting.  There are literally thousands upon thousands of young children who have been sexualized by Catholic priests over the course of several decades in all corners of the globe.  The problem is not isolated at all, and the only common factor between these horrific crimes is that they occurred at the hands of the Catholic Church. If the entire world got sick from eating a certain food, we would stop eating that food.  In the case of the Catholic Church, the children of the world are being undeniably harmed by their religious leaders in habitual and systemic acts of pedophilia, yet the leaders at The Vatican continue to ignore and obfuscate the truth. Now, one former Pope is even blaming the cultural revolution of the 1960’s for the issue. Emeritus Pope Benedict has emerged from his cone of silence to offer a personal analysis of the clerical sex abuse crisis, citing the sexual revolution, a corruption of moral theology, and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries as causes of the problem. Benedict says that he felt compelled to contribute to a response to the present situation “since I myself had served in a position of responsibility as shepherd of the Church at the time of the public outbreak of the crisis,” and so penned his reflections, obtaining the present pope’s blessing to make them public. In his new, 6,000-word bombshell essay, the former pope turns his gaze toward societal forces outside the Church as well as…
