The following news item from the OneNewsNow site should bring a cheer. We are not to be doormats for Jesus.
WASHINGTON, DC – The group Americans United for Separation of Church and State wants the Internal Revenue Service to review Liberty University‘s tax-exempt status because the Christian school revoked its recognition of a student-run Democratic club.
Americans United made the request in a letter to the IRS, arguing that Liberty’s recognition of a Republican club offers GOP candidates support that is not available to Democratic candidates.
Mathew Staver, dean of the Liberty University law school, calls the complaint “frivolous” and says Liberty will ask the IRS to review whether Americans United should lose its tax-exempt status for regularly supporting Democratic Party positions.
Liberty’s chancellor, Jerry Falwell Jr., said the club’s recognition was revoked because the Democratic Party’s abortion and homosexual rights positions are contrary to the university’s principles. In an earlier statement, Falwell said “Liberty University is pro-life and believes that marriage between one man and one woman provides the best environment for children” — and that the school “will not lend its name or financial support to any student group that advances causes contrary to its mission.”
