Two school with lower populations and have not had enough media exposure that Liberty has in decades. I suppose that's quite similar. I'm sure that same incident would be denounce on campus, yet the media would spin that and say its not a shocker since their president supports a dictator who's a nazi. You have to look at context, even with those situation that occurred that school. This has nothing to do with using God as blame which your example that you used didn't fit well with the context. Even if we remove Jr., we will have issues being a faith based school who don't have coed forms(commons is sort of that I suppose), frat houses, freedom to drink and live the worldly life and don't forget their pseudo-academia of Creationism! They push fear porn and always will. The attack on Christianity is there and not because of Jr. (Which you missed out on) and his ridiculous tweets. In honesty I didn't want to go to LU because I ( plus other students) was told these lies when I lived in Northern Virginia(This was way before Trump's presidency). So I stand by my statement even if you don't see it that way.

I just did a cursory search of two university's that would be similar to LU that I'm aware of....Biola and Cedarville. I couldn't find any issues with Cedarville and found one on Biola from 2016, someone had drawn a swastika over the door of a black student. In that case it wasn't an issue of the president of the university being the problem. Instead, the leadership denounced it and called for a specific time of prayer and fasting. Doesn't appear any black faculty or staff resigned over it. It's BS to say we have these "challenges" because we are Christians.
Thats not what I said; of course we continue to show the love of Christ to others. My point is that people will never agree because of that even when politics was involved. That was Jr. tweet; a message concerning more about the corona speech than the Floyd incident. Yet people got emotional about it and made decisions establishing assumptions which didn't need to go that route. As I stated before, most of the black community will immediately go that route when something involves a white and black person and not the entire situation. What does the Floyd situation have to do with questioning if Liberty is racist or not concerning a tweet which actually was posted mocking a governor and his actions?.This whole situation is a political stunt from both sides plus other groups who use race for their gain. As I said again, police officers have been doing these things to other blacks and other races, and they were never as viral(even when there were videos of incident). Now because this incident is more viral (mostly by medias wuth their own agendas),we are here questioning if there's a systematic issue of a man and school because his political tweet which showed another man being racist, yet no one is looking at him? With all this confusion and even deceit (dialectic), what great conclusions will come out of this? When will it end? Jr resigning? The fact that you're a Christ follow will cause challenges in this world. That will be Liberty's issue now and in the future and these situations will continue since people usually immediately make a good amount of their decisions based on their emotions.
Also there have been people who didn't feel loved at Liberty for years because of some reason. These things will never end but we have to continue to allow Christ to use people in the university for His will. Demanding Jr. to resign based on perspectives will not completely change these issues. That's my position of this situation.
Reminds me of a dishonest boss who said Satan attacked his business because he was doing ministry work, never thinking it might be he had problems because of his dishonesty. Sometimes God get's more blame and credit than He deserves.
Biola has almost 7,000 on-campus students with more more recognition in the apologetics world and academia than Liberty. It has all of the same rules LU regarding drinking, coed dorms, sexuality, etc. and is in one of the biggest media capitals of the world. Grand Canyon is more similar in size to LU and has the same rules. They aren't portrayed negatively on a regular basis.
Nothing wrong with being singled out for Christian distinctives if you are a Christian school. Junior picks his fights (not spiritual ones of course because he has washed his hands of that responsibility) and enjoys them...to the detriment of alumni.
