So, if I were teaching at Liberty University (stop laughing, I’m speaking hypothetically–seriously, stop laughing, geez), I wouldn’t be allow to show R-rated films or say the word ‘damn’, but I could, along with my students, carry a loaded gun to class.
Just following in the footsteps of their ‘Prince of Peace’, I guess.
If you think I jest, here, read this!
[I promise, it’s not from The Onion . . . it should be, but it’s not].
Hmm. You have to admire their oh-so pious regulations. No dancing (like my main man,
Pimp King David), no cursing, no movies, no drinking, but carrying a loaded gun to class in order to exercise your Christ-like attitude toward your ‘potential’ enemies?
Love clearly knows no fear.
Ah, didn’t Jesus slam these guys back, like, oh, I don’t know . . . 2,000 years ago?
