Founded by Falwell in 1971, Liberty University, which according to its website is “the largest and fastest growing Christian Evangelical university in the world” and “the largest private university in Virginia,” is “celebrating 40 Years of Training Champions for Christ.”
During the last fiscal year alone, Liberty received about $445 million in federal financial aid money, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Over the past few years, Liberty University has raked in so much taxpayer money from the federal government that is now ranked among the top ten universities in the United States receiving federal dollars. It is also Virginia’s top recipient of federal money.
While Liberty has received more than $445 million, in 2010, National Public Radio received only $2.7 million in federal money.
So why is an organization that is adamantly apposed to government assistance receiving so much in government assistance? Could it be they are hypocrites? Naaaaaaa…
