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.

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!

America Gets Tutored in the Doctrine of Devils

College Fix editor Jennifer Kabbany says “Nevermind the War on Christmas – what about the War on Jesus Christ?”

College Fix editor Jennifer Kabbany says “Nevermind the War on Christmas – what about the War on Jesus Christ?” Universities across America show an outright disregard and disdain for Jesus Christ, a survey by The College Fix finds. “A look at hundreds of religious studies classes at universities across the nation uncovered that, for the most part, professors prefer to snub the subject of who Jesus is and what he preached. Classes that are focused on Christianity, meanwhile, tip-toe around or altogether avoid the topic of Christ’s teachings.” College Fix says, classes in witchcraft, shamanism, yoga, after life beliefs, gender and religion are, but a few of the courses schools now offer the students in American colleges. But it doesn’t start there – it begins in kindergarten classes and elementary education. Drag queens are reading to the kiddies on anything they see fit, all while dressed in full gay regalia. Prophecy News Watch site says “Queer Is In, Christian Is Out.” The piece written by author Jonathon Van Maren that many classic ideas, teachings, and stories for children are getting LGBT makeovers, like these. “According to Christianity Daily, the fairytale Cinderella will be coming to Amazon Prime in September with a “LGBTQ sexless godmother,” played, unsurprisingly, by male homosexual Billy Porter. Porter told CBS that the new version will be “a classic fairytale for a new generation.” The BBC is also plugging a new children’s book called My Daddies, the story of a motherless little girl adopted by two men. This book was newsworthy not because there is any shortage of this sort of thing lately, but because it is “the first book of its kind to be written and illustrated by same-sex adoptive parents,” and “the first picture book about two gay dads with both an LGBT author and illustrator.” PBS, as…

Leftists on God, Creation, and Religion

What do you say to a mass political movement that denies the existence of God…?

As many citizens know, even those on the Left, our nation was founded based on a strong belief in God. The Founding Fathers recognized that the rights of human beings are bestowed by the Creator, not by other people. They did not require that anyone be religious or adhere to any particular religious doctrine.  Concurrently, the often misquoted phrase about the “separation of church and state” does not appear anywhere in the U.S. Constitution. The statement was part of Thomas Jefferson’s response in 1802 to a religious association in answer to their letter from October 1801. https://usconstitution.net/jeffwall.html An Immutable Right The Danbury Baptists, a religious minority based in Connecticut, lamented that their religious liberty was regarded not as an ‘immutable right,’ but as a privilege granted by the state legislature. Jefferson’s carefully replied, but focused only on religious liberty on the national level.  His letter included the phrase “wall of separation between church and state.” This phrase has served as a type short-hand for the First Amendment’s ‘Establishment Clause’ which forbids the government from passing any law “respecting an establishment of religion.”  This Establishment Clause forbids the government from establishing an ‘official’ religion and from unduly favoring one religion over another. Any reference to God, per se, is an entirely different issue. Whom Do We Trust? Religious sentiment heightened throughout the dark days of the U.S. Civil War, as hundreds of thousands of soldiers died. A clamoring arose for the U.S. to acknowledge the deity, and subsequently the Secretary of the Treasury mandated that the words, “In God We Trust” appear on various Federal Reserve notes and on all coinage. www.treasury.gov/about/education/Pages/in-god-we-trust.aspx  In 1956, “In God We Trust” became the official motto of the U.S. Today, this phrase, and the words “one nation under God” in the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance,…
