    “In an emailed statement Monday, Liberty said the Military Religious Freedom Foundation’s accusation that military officials violated the law were “erroneous.”

    “The practice of holding hearings at Liberty University is not a prohibited endorsement of religion,” Keith Faulkner, the dean of the law school, said in the statement. “In fact, MRFF’s demanded remedy of prohibiting any hearing at a religiously-affiliated law school would be an unconstitutional violation of the First Amendment’s prohibition against viewpoint discrimination.”

    So some one somewhere has a list of other schools where this practice has occurred?

    Grey One,
    Would it makes a difference if they held it at Notre Dame School of Law or BYU School of Law or Baylor U School of Law, Georgetown School of Law all of them are religious founded colleges or do you just hate Liberty?

    SARSU,

    You didn’t answer my question.

    I dislike the crumbling of the wall between church and state.

    Grey One,
    Here is your list –
    “Professors at Liberty University’s law school said the Air Force holds court at religious and non-religious law schools all over the county including University of Connecticut, University of Texas, Brigham Young University, Michigan State University, University of Louisville, Catholic University, Creighton University, Duke University, Duquesne University, Florida International University, Georgetown University, Gonzaga University, Hofstra University, University of California-Hastings, Marquette University, Notre Dame University, The Ohio State University, and Southern Methodist University.”

    Your list doesn’t change the fact that what the Air Force had done was not proper. You would go bonkers if you found out that it was done at a Muslim university.
