Worst University in the Country? August 27, 2007Posted by Evil Bender in Humor, News and politics, wingnuts.
The Rev.BigDumbChimp put me on to this one: Radar Online’s list of worst colleges in the country. The methodology is a bit sketchy (low SAT scores, for example, play a big role, as do acceptance rates) but it’s hard to argue with the results. Liberty University beats out a tough group of competitors for Worst Christian College (I wonder how Pensacola Christian College fared), and the University of Bridgeport wins out for best overall. This is notable because it’s being run by Moonies:
In the mid-’90s, this tragic university was about to go belly up when it was rescued by an unseemly savior—Reverend Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church. Though the Moonies have been accused of fraud, high-pressure recruitment tactics, and wrenching troubled kids from their parents, the cult’s $100 million “endowment” secured the Moonies’ leader, Neil Salonen, his position as the university’s president.
That’s right, folks: a university run by a cult that ranks up their with Scientology in pure creepiness. Given the choice between this place and Liberty University–
–well, I’d reluctantly take Bridgeport. At least then I wouldn’t risk seeing Rove at alumni events.
