150 149

Regent University School of Law, founded by televangelist Pat Robertson, brags that 150 of its alumni were hired by federal government since President Bush took office in 2001.

At Regent, they like to say they combine quality education with biblical teachings to "produce Christian leaders who will make a difference, who will change the world."

Of course their number has been reduced by one now that Monica Goodling, a former top aide to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, has resigned from the Justice Department after asserting her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination for her role in the firing of eight US attorneys.

Do you suppose Goodling skipped the Regents class on thou shalt not lie?

You can read the Boston Globe story "Scandal puts spotlight on Christian law school" here.

Or Dahlia Lithwick's piece in the Washington Post about how Gonzales' predecessor, Pentecostalist John Ashcroft fired or forced out career professionals in the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division to make room for conservative Christians with no civil rights experience.

Our friend Mousie Cat, who writes the Evolving in Kansas blog, also has a post on our truth-challenged morality police.
