    Yes. They bring in Mormons.

    Never mind the speakers. LU had Ergun Caner, the blatant liar, on its faculty and defended him for quite some time before accepting what the world already knew.

    From what you have said, you believe Liberty University endorces President Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, John MacArthur and Ted Kennedy (as all have spoken at LU). You believe these men represent what the University holds true?

    Trump's latest tweet:


    Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!​

    No. As far as I know, the only relationship these men have with Liberty is the fact that LU gave them a platform from which to speak. And as to what LU holds true, that seems to be in flux.

    I agree that LU invites speakers that they (the University) doesn't endorce. It was just a year ago that people was complaining about President Trump giving the commencement speech.

    Falwell would bring in pageant gals, even before there was a school:

    I remember student Shannon DePuy being celebrated for her success at Miss Virginia and Miss America (top ten finalist), this was nearly three decades ago.

    She was Commencement speaker several years back:
