More than 14,000 graduating seniors at Liberty University, the school founded by Jerry Falwell, will get a special treat when they pick up their lambskin: GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is delivering the school’s Commencement address on May 12.
“We are delighted that Governor Romney will join us to celebrate Commencement with Liberty’s 2012 graduates,” said Liberty Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr. “This will be a historic event for Liberty University reminiscent of the visits of Governor, and then presidential candidate, Ronald Reagan to Liberty’s campus in 1980 and of President George H.W. Bush who spoke at Liberty’s 1990 Commencement ceremony.”
Guess the fundies are getting over that whole “Mormons aren’t Christians” thing now that Mitt is the presumptive nominee.
Well, Romney will be in good company: In addition to Reagan and Bush, perennial crybaby Glen Beck delivered a commencement at the evangelical college, where students must promise not to drink, smoke, dance, have sex or vote Democrat.
Kind of makes you think they misnamed the school, huh?
