Again, how is that even a response to what I said?
Are you simply going to continue to try and stereotype me and conservatism in general?
Is it that scary to even consider the possibility that your preconceived notions might be wrong?
Stereotype you and conservatism in general? no, but facts are facts, evangelist have sneaked in the back door of the right and are now pushing MORAL issues and views to reflect religious issues and wedge issues: gay mariage, abortion, and all thanks to whom?? well, here's a quote about the Pat Roberton school REGENT of religious govt infection::and I quote....
"Bush administration hires: According to Regent University, more than 150 of its graduates had been hired by the federal government during the George W. Bush presidency including dozens in Bush's administration. As it was previously rare for alumni to go into government, Boston Globe journalist Charlie Savage suggested that the appointment of Office of Personnel Management director Kay Coles James, the former dean of Regent's government school, caused this sharp increase in Regent alumni employed in the government. An article about a Regent graduate who interviewed for a government position and Regent's low school rankings were cited as an example of the Bush administration hiring applicants with strong conservative credentials but weaker academic qualifications and less civil rights law experience than past candidates in the Civil Rights Division. In addition to Savage, several other commentators made similar assertions. The Washington Post contrasted the employment of Regent employees by Bush to the hiring practices of his successor Barack Obama who tended to select from higher tiered colleges.
However, Savage noted that the school had improved since its days of "dismal numbers" and that the school has had recent wins in national moot-court and negotiation competitions. Though a prominent critic of the school, Reverend Barry Lynn of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State advised against "underestimat[ing] the quality of a lot of the people that are there"
