Bill Maher: Liberty University Is Not A Real School

By  Posted:  Updated: 05/20/2012 11:18 am

Bill Maher Liberty University

At the end of "Real Time" Friday night, Bill Maher lambasted Liberty University, the Virginia religious university that has become a mandatory stop for Republican presidential candidates. (Watch above.)

"You can't expect me to believe anything Mitt Romney said last week at Liberty University, because a) he's a liar and b) Liberty University isn't really a university," Maher began. "It's not like an actual statesman visited a real college. It's more like the Tupac hologram visited Disneyland and said what he would do as president during the Main Street Electrical Parade."

Romney delivered Liberty's commencement speech on May 12.

Maher noted that Liberty teaches "creation science," and the idea that earth was created 5,000 years ago. "This is a school you flunk out of when you get the answers right," he joked.

Much as conservatives believe gay marriage cheapens their own vows, "I think a diploma from Liberty cheapens my diploma from a real school," he continued. "I worked really hard for four years and sold a lot of drugs to get that thing."

Liberty's diploma may look real, Maher said, but "when you confuse a church with a school, Maher went on, "it mixes up the things you believe — religion — with the things we know — education. Then you start thinking that creationism is science, and gay aversion is psychology, and praying away hurricanes is meteorology."

Watch the whole clip above.

Hubby went to college here (because they have a good program that works with people in the military)

He lasted a year and then transferred. It is RIDICULOUS!
His last science professor made the class read a couple chapters in their book and then when it was time to test over it he started the test by saying "everything you read in the science book was a LIE!" and then tested them over Bibical "science"...

That was the last straw.

Sometimes Bill crosses the line but when he's right, he's right.

Liberty gets away with teaching much of its drivel by creatively hiding it in the course catalog, then making these courses part of the undergraduate requirements, and generally mocking content in the classroom. "Creationism" was listed as biology before accreditation boards threatened Liberty. Its now listed a the "intellectual history of creationism" and is required of every freshman. Similarly classes on world religion are required. These seems enlightened until you realize that the class is an open forum discussion on why all non-Baptists are going to hell. Real science classes often have questions on the test about "alternative biblical" answers. I have a very disillusion home schooled friend who is trying to recover from his four years there.

I looked him up..he's quite interesting..

Maher's remarks after 9/11 were not the first time he had sparked controversy on Politically Incorrect. In the same year, Maher was widely criticized for comparing dogs to retarded children.

There's a LOT more..but that one stuck out to me.

Huh?  Are you insinuating that atheists are not morally fit to participate in the democratic process?
