Liberty University Loosens Dress Code


Jerry Falwell is founder of Liberty University

LYNCHBURG, Va. - Capri pants and flip-flops will be fine in class but shorts will remain forbidden as school starts next week at Liberty University, the college founded by the Rev. Jerry Falwell.

Students were notified of the more relaxed campus dress code by e-mail. As recently as five years ago, men were required to wear ties at the university and women had to wear long skirts or dresses.

"I am thrilled, because flip-flops and jeans are my favorite attire," said student Grace Burns.

The code requires "neat jeans" — no holes or patches. Shorts "are never acceptable" in the classroom, though the ban is eased for the dining hall and academic buildings after 4:30 p.m. Shorts must be mid-thigh length or longer. ...

If you Internet-search for "Christian" "nudist," you'll find that your toasted neighbor is not unique. I just wonder why so few Christians are as consistent in their reasoning.

BTW, melanin-deficient people like him and me have a good medical reason to stay covered in the sun - better to sweat than to get melanoma or worse. Note that my residence is at about the same latitude & climate zone as Baghdad.

Neil, if no clothes are spiritual then I know a real Guru! I had an SDA neighbour, an old man in his 70's who believed in absorbing as much sunlight as possible (part of the SDA health conscious approach to life I think). He did everything he could with no clothes on - weed the garden, paint the house, even drive the car! No idea where he drove to with no clothes on! He had no front fence and there was a primary school for young children just 1/4 mile up the same road, so if he was working on his house he would put out a sign on the sidewalk (only about 25 feet from the front of his house): "No admittance, unclad workmen".

Ha, ha, ha - talk about hillarious! He ressembled a wrinkled, brown prune.....

Mr. Fallwell has gone overboard on other issues, so I'm not surprised that he imposes his interpretation on everybody at his school. I think I'll pass on applying here, because I prefer my shorts on a hot day at the workplace, in the classroom, and outside.

So we should therefore go w/o clothes to show how spiritual we are, that we are not a bunch of legalists. And it's not forbidden in the NT either.

gotta love the pharisees, all dressed up on the outside and full of dead men's bones, so interested in the exterior that they could care less what is in a man's heart...seems Jesus had something to say about that...you aren't going in and you are preventing others from going in as well, when you do make a convert and make him twice the son of hell as you...Go Liberty! Thanks for exercising common sense!

Dr. Falwell,
I told my church recently that I went to the bank and noticed all the tellers were modestly dressed. I went to the library and noticed the staff were all modestly and properly dressed (though some in business pants suits). Our manager at Walmart told me he sends his cashiers home if they are not dressed modestly and appropriately. The house of God should at the very least have the standards of the world!

So, is it a sin to wear jeans to class?

Greg, "tools of the Devil" is a strawman. Even our "godless" courtrooms have a dress code; in fact, everyone does - the question is, does it start with what the fashion industry says, or with what God says? God expects man to apply His Commandments in detail, even if we arrive at different solutions at times. And He cares about what we wear; He made the first proper set of clothes (Gen. 3:21).

Social dancing has a purpose, and it's not merely exercise.

"Where Liberty really needs to ease up is on the "no attendance at dances" restriction."

Because you like to do "sexy moves" and touch the opposite sex? The Bible says clearly that we should not cause people to stumble in the relation with God and by provoking them to lust in their minds you are doing so. If you like dancing because it is a good sport- do other sports which are moral, or dance with your wife/husband at your home. Please repent of your sins. It is not too late. Without repentance there is NO remission of sins. Do you serve the Lord with all your mind, soul and body or are you trying to do the bare minimum for the Lord and say that you are "not convinced" when the Lord requires something from your life? Hope that will help you. God Bless!

Amen as to the Ten Shekels and a Shirt. That sermon is worth listening to repeated times.

Mr. Yurich: I hate to cause you despair, but as recently as 1995, St. Joseph's University (Jesuit) in Philadelphia has had a bar not only on the campus, but actually in the student activity center. It is a full service bar and opens at 11 AM every day. At the time I was still a Roman Catholic and my second son was planning on going there. He did not. The school bulletin board also advertised abortion services, and the dorms were co-ed. I was told by the Registrar that in order to continue to receive federal funding the "family planning" notices had to be displayed. I am afraid that like many Roman Catholics, you are truly not aware of just how libertine the American RC church has become. I say this not to offend you.

Smoking and drinking will never be allowed on campus at Liberty University. They do not allow smoking and drinking on campus at any religious post secondary educational institution whether it is Catholic or Protestant.

Dr. Falwell,
Please go to Sermonaudio.com and download, "THE SHECKLES AND A SHIRT" by Paris Reidhead!!! Do this without delay.

In case Jerry is not listening, will someone please send him a copy of "TEN SHECKLES..." before he slips further away.

The bad part about a school having a variety of rules is that in later years, when they change a rule, the critics say the school has lowered its Christian standards. This happened when BJU dropped the requirement for girls to wear hats in chapel, when BJU admitted blacks and again when they dropped the interracial dating prohibitation.

Ultimately, we must live by the standards set in Scripture, not the standards set by crities.

Well I'm sure some people think that capri pants and flip-flops are the tools of the Devil, but I'm not convinced. Where Liberty really needs to ease up is on the "no attendance at dances" restriction. I like to dance, so, if I went to school there, I'd be getting at least 6 reprimands and a $25 fine every week.

The full list of Reprimands and Consequences can be found online at: http://www.liberty.edu/index.cfm?PID=1378

"This is what our students want," Hine said. "We're searching for a happy medium."

So why not permit bikinis & boxers? A lot of students like those too. Gotta live up to the name "Liberty University."
