Liberty University Grants Equal Status to Young Dems and College Republicans

A month of blood, sweat, and tears by Young Democrats at Liberty University and their allies led to victory yesterday. According to the Lynchburg News & Advance, all political groups on campus will be recognized as "unofficial" clubs. These clubs can use the school's name and facilities, but they cannot receive funding.

Should political groups endorse candidates which do not fit in with the university's "Christian mission," however, they will be barred from using Liberty's facilities to promote that candidate. These clubs will also not have faculty sponsors.

Maybe it's not a perfect solution, but I think we can mark a win for free speech and the freedom to organize.
