    I specifically said PAC12 wouldn't take BYU -- there's a difference, just like there's a difference between the schools you mention and Liberty. None of those schools qualify as religious zealots, so simmer down. Liberty's soul purpose is 'training champions for Christ through Christian education." Nothing wrong with it, they've done a great job with what they have, great women's basketball team however they're the equivalent of University of Phoenix. They don't get a free pass because their online students are religious, sorry.

    Re: Liberty on a mission

    Liberty has a larger grad and undergrad oncampus enrollment than Tech.
    Liberty has real athletic facilities (Vines Center is larger than the TAC), real dorms, real cafeterias, real academic buildings.
    Liberty has a law school.
    Liberty has a seminary.
    Liberty has an endowment of $1B+.
    They are in a 4 year, $400M building program.
    They are finishing a new $50M library.

    Liberty is a real school. They were a real school before the Internet craze. Just because they have a lot of distance learning students, does not mean that they are not a real university in every sense of the word.

    Liberty's admissions numbers are better than I would have expected. They'd fit in with the Sun Belt, at any rate.

    They are streaking up the athletic, education
    and $$$ ladder right now. I hope it continues. "Baylor of the East".

    The real reason to shut out Liberty (or Grand Canyon, for that matter) is to protect the status quo. Online classes, for-profit ownership, and alleged zealotry are weak excuses offered to protect the establishment.
    Good post.

    Liberty is one of this nations great institutions and produces graduates which the world probably does consider to be weird. I wish we had about a hundred more Liberties

    Sooooo, y'all know that Liberty does not allow holding hands, arms wrapped around shoulders, etc. on campus. They have some pretty heavy relationship regulations, which is why many unsecure fathers like to send their daughters there.

    Sounds like a non-secular Arab state.

    Atheists will burn in Hell forever.

    Can't try to use the excuse "I didn't know" when Judgment Day comes. You do know. You are choosing to reject the truth. Fortunately for you, it is still not too late. God is forgiving and will happily accept you into the fold, but you have to have a change of heart. God gave all of us a free will. It's up to you.
