    Regent University: I AM the Law!

    Pat Robinson's evangelical espousing of his view that assassination is a practical tool of US foreign policy this week allows me to revisit Regent University, that lovely Christian Law School. (My previous post is here.) I fully expect the graduates to be like Judge Dredd, thunderously proclaiming "I AM THE LAW!" before meting out the death penalty for infractions of the Bible Code. (No, not that one.)

    Over on NPR there's a story about the growing trend of Christian Law Schools.
    Regent University School of Law: Founded by televangelist Pat Robertson, Regent University School of Law was established in 1986 as a full-time, three-year law program. It gained full accreditation from the American Bar Association (ABA) in 1996 -- the first religiously conservative law school to do so. Today, 500 students attend the school. Students come from 44 states, over 413 colleges and universities and numerous foreign countries.
    An interesting note on the Regent home page (link above) says "Regent University School of Law is distinctive among law schools approved by the American Bar Association because of the integration of Christian Principles into our curriculum." (emphasis mine.)

    I'm still trying to get my mind around the confluence of assassination and Pat Robertson's Christian values.
