You farking religious people, man. I just can't even sometimes.


Yes, YOU. YOU are part of all of this if you claim to be religious.

Cervetus: shut_it_down: And if the students aren't hypocrite fundie assholes, then they can just leave and go to a normal school.

Privilege-like typing detected.


Liberty isn't some community college that normal people go to because that's what they can afford and what's available. It's a $22k/year private university, with total costs of $40k/year. If you're at that school, you are spending a fortune to subject yourself to a crazy fundie college experience. If those students decide that they no longer want to volunteer for abuse, then they can go somewhere else. If mommy and daddy won't pay for them to go somewhere else, there are still other options.

I would like to help you get expelled.

I mean, it's not like your Liberty degree will be worth anything anyway.

How many restraining orders are taped to your refrigerator?


All of them!

Yakk: Dear Liberty University students:

It's all a con, go do something else that makes you happy.

p.s. yes, everyone knew it was a con but you


Students aren't always there by choice.

When I was in high school I had a friend who went to a Baptist high school (her parents weren't religious at all but were desperate to avoid the horror of public school). There were plenty of people from her high school who were essentially forced to go to Liberty University by their parents. They were miserable there and came home for the weekend and partied with their high school friends as often as possible.

I'm sure it was a Trailer Park Boys themed party. The video (posted above) reinforces that.

I noticed the Solo cup and other things in the video. They were obviously drinking and I suspect a bit of swinging. Didn't see Jerry's wife. Typically when I have friends over I don't take them to my bedroom and grasp their bare skin at the midriff for photos. But you know what, good for him. He has conned a bunch of people into paying for his lavish and selfish lifestyle and they will likely continue to do so. All you can do is show the rubes the scam, if they want to keep wasting their money that is on them.

When you are 18 you are an adult. If you want to keep sucking off the parental teat that is on you.

Well they are liberty students, like what you couldn't get into a real college. I think they will find their career options limited until they scrub that from their resume.


Only until the next Republican administration. They hire those farkwits all the time.

These articles go around every semester/quarter.  There's always a few people going to this place that clearly weren't paying attention during the campus tour.

Well I guess you're one of those special people who, on the day they turned 18, had enough money for a security deposit and first month's rent despite not being allowed to have a job in high school, a job that paid enough for you to support yourself and pay tuition, and were fine with being completely cut off from your family, including your younger siblings. Because that's the choice they were offered.

Maybe someday you'll understand that when you have two bad options, you're still allowed to be unhappy with the results of the one you chose. Ot that short term pain for long term gain is still painful.

And yeah, you can act like an internet tough guy and say you'd be fine with being cut off from a family that did that to you but it's not that easy for everyone.

AAAAGGGGHHHH: Fundies in general are incredibly awful, but the worst kinds are those with the "David Complex", who proclaim that they are exempt from any biblical laws & restrictions that you & I in the slave pits have to obey because they are "God's Chosen" elite. Which is why you always see these a**holes wallowing in the most depraved stuff imaginable (from simple grift to pedophilia), because they think that their debauchery is their own way of worshiping God.

I was one of those 'unlucky people' that was told early on that when I turned 18 I would either be packing my bags to move off to college, packing my bags for the Army, or packing my bags to move into an apartment. I had plenty of warning that when high school ended I was leaving. Of course I had my own car (purchased for $4000 - brand new Toyota Tercel EZ) and had what amounted to a full ride through college. I had also worked all through my junior and senior year so I had money. I actually sold off almost all of my comic books to get the car (and a new stereo, CD player, guitar....). It is part of growing up and living in your parents shadow / under your mom's skirt is not how to do it.

I wasn't 'cut off'. My parents actually covered my auto insurance all through college and I stayed in the guest room over Xmas all through college and during the summer between my freshmen/sophomore year. They actually had my old bedroom redecorated long before I came back for Thanksgiving my Freshman year. The most important part of raising kids is preparing them for adulthood. That means the kids know that they are making the decisions and living with the consequences. They helped with little things only and the offered some guidance, but my decisions were on me.

And at what point in their life do the parents stop threatening to cut their kids off if they don't do what they say?

So, your parents partially supported you through college; even allowing you to live at home between semesters counts as a form of support.  You don't say which college you attended, or if your parents put any restrictions on the type you could attend.  The kids in question were given the choice between Liberty University or the street; it sounds like you were given better options.

I heard one fellow tell the story of how his mother had been given a condition that she must attend a college within a certain distance of her hometown.  She got out a map, set a compass to that distance based on the scale, and drew a circle.  The circle passed through Boulder, Colorado.  Just in time for the Sixties.

I know that this is a real thing that parents say, but it's a false choice. If my idiot sister could move halfway across the country at 18 against my parents wishes, then anyone can. She figured out her own education and living situation and she is of pretty ordinary intelligence. I also know plenty of people who were "commanded" by their parents to go to a certain type or of school. Most of them did what they wanted and their parents eventually came around. So go to the school you want. Get financial aid and live in the dorms. Become an RA for some money and free lodging. It might suck to not have your parents' support, but you have way more options than Liberty homelessness. At some point you have to live your own life without being beholden to your parents.

Whole lot of "that was then, this is now."
The cost of a college education has inflated by a bizarre amount since us old fart farkers went.  While they used to make you live in the dorms, a lot of universities now don't want to provide student housing anymore, and either converted the dorms to other purposes or sold that real estate off at tremendous profit.  The two dorm buildings I lived in as an undergrad are no longer dormitories, and as for the dorms I lived in as a graduate student...they were trying to push us out while I was there.
