I know Christian fundamentalism is very patriarchal, but Liberty University may be taking it a step too far…
Liberty University broke ground Monday morning for the school’s latest endeavor, the Freedom Tower. The tower will serve as the home for the School of Divinity.
At 275 feet, it will be the tallest building in Lynchburg.
I hear if you’re especially nice to it, it might grow even taller.
(Yeah, yeah, it’s just a building. I’m very immature. As if you weren’t thinking the same damn thing. I suppose it could be worse.)Here’s what really made me laugh:
“For us it will point heavenward and remind us that God really is the center of this campus,” Ed Hindson, the LU Divinity School Dean said.
“For us it will point heavenward”? Yeah, that’s generally how towers operate everywhere. You’re not unique in that regard.
Do Liberty’s architecture classes resemble their biology ones…?
Anyway, the tower is on schedule to be fully erect by 2017.
