The leaders of Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, have revoked recognition of its campus Democratic club because the Democratic Party’s positions on social issues run counter to the school’s mission. As stated in the school’s official announcement of the revocation:

bq. The Democratic Party Platform is contrary to the mission of LU and to Christian doctrine (supports abortion, federal funding of abortion, advocates repeal of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, promotes the “LGBT” agenda, Hate Crimes, which include sexual orientation and gender identity, socialism, etc).
