Value Voter Summit 2010

We’ve noticed as have others that the 2010 FRCAction (Family Research Council) Value Voter Summit happened over the long weekend, and Liberty University/Liberty Council played a marquee role [link]. Here are excerpts from the Friday September 17 schedule:

7:15 – 8:30 a.m.

LIBERTY UNIVERSITY/LIBERTY COUNSEL BREAKFAST (ticketed event) – Diplomat Room Understanding the Millennial Generation (Speakers – Rev. Johnnie Moore, Vice President and Campus Pastor, Liberty University; Mat Staver, Chairman, Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law; Dr. Joshua Straub, American Association of Christian Counselors) or BREAKFAST ON YOUR OWN

Bold in the original. Later in the day there’s this:

2:00 – 5:00 p.m.

AFTERNOON PLENARY SESSION-Regency Ballroom

Senator Rick Santorum

Gary Bauer, President, American Values

Christine O’Donnell

Dr. Ergun Caner, Professor and Apologist, Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and Graduate School

‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Panel
– Sgt. Brian Fleming
– Gen. Carl Mundy*

O’Donnell made the news herself over the weekend, so there’s no point in me linking to any of that here.

I’m surprised and disappointed to see that Ergun Caner was also on the bill, given that I believe the questions raised about his history and his credibility have not been answered. Perhaps he has published a revised summary autobiography that would shed some light on his previous claims to be an ex-jihadi; if so I haven’t seen it.

His appearance is available on YouTube, at least for the moment, as a user uploaded a tagged duplicate of the C-SPAN archive:

I don’t really care what he said. I’m embarrassed to have him representing my alma mater in a public forum. I don’t think his appearance presents Liberty in a good light, and I think it tarnishes the reputation of Liberty Council and Mat Staver to have him on the bill.
