Here’s a story that gives good background on Pat Robertson’s Regent University law school. It’s from Bill Moyer’s special called “Keeping the Faith.”
You can download the video here (WMV).
If the name of Regent isn’t familiar, it had been said on their website that since 2001, over 150 graduates of the law school had gone on to work for the Bush administration. And former Attorney General John Ashcroft is now a professor there.
As Crooks and Liars points out:
Moyers paints a stark picture of a law school and a religious leader that are having a profound effect on the American system of law and government. Seeing Regent’s newly graduated students talk about the philosophy they intend to bring to the practice of law (and most likely to the federal government) is frightening to anyone who appreciates the traditional notion of the separation between church and state.
More information on the Moyers’ segment is on the Crooks and Liars website.
