Regent University School of Law has a promotional video out that it’s simply astounding to watch. It starts — I shit you not — with Pat Robertson comparing the school to Oxford and the Sorbonne. Without a hint of irony. It includes Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, a Regent graduate, offering up a fake quote from George Washington:
It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible.
McDonnell says he’s “never forgotten” the lesson of that non-existent statement. And you might wanna put the irony meters for this one. The law school now has a “Center for Global Justice” to “advocate on behalf of oppressed people around the globe.” Really? Maybe you could explain that to your founder, who has been in business with and defended brutal dictators like Charles Taylor of Liberia, Mobutu Sese Seko in the Congo, and Rios Montt in Guatemala. Robertson has made gobs of money in gold and diamond mines by climbing into bed with these thugs as they tortured and killed their people routinely. Global justice indeed.
