-snip- With lessons resuming Monday and the inaugural class approaching the bar exam, Falwell predicts his graduates will be "counterculture lawyers" sent out like missionaries into politics, government and private practice.
"This school gives me an opportunity to study law from a perspective that recognizes the Bible as truth," said third-year student Daniel White, 25, who hopes to enter politics and worked last summer at the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. "The Lord placed me here."
United by common values, many of these 160 evangelicals consider the law a career as well as a higher calling. Many want to stop abortion, reinstate prayer in public schools and ban same-sex marriage. . . . "We have a heavy commitment to the sanctity of human life, born and unborn. We will be trying to reconcile couples rather than help them get divorces," Falwell said. "We need Christian lawyers. -- We are to be the conscience of the culture and confront the culture when necessary. We will assist families giving birth to their children rather than aborting them. And we will attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade one day."
Falwell, who likes to use military symbolism, said his law school is dispatching fresh troops in the cultural wars.
"We're training lieutenants for the Lord," he said.
2. We have a heavy commitment to the sanctity of human life,
Ummmmmmmmm yeah, ok.....But what about the sanctity of life in illicit wars? Lieutenants for the Lord? Does that mean conservative lawyers are playing God? Goodness, sometimes these wackos make it too easy. If only the DNC and DLC would see it the same way.
