Can Jesus spin in his grave?

Sunday's NYT Magazine piece on the Liberty University Debate Team had CHB's attention. I had the honor of chatting up the Rev. Falwell on the matter of his debate team a year or so ago. His pride in the team is obvious to anyone listening: his voice swells, he gets emotional and all up-with-kids on you.

But i'm sure his fat face would shake with sin-fearing rage were he to learn that his beloved debate coach, Brett O'Donnell lied. O'Donnell is a legend among college debating coaches. His claim to fame rests equally on his having helped coach George W. Bush for the 2004 presidential debates.

While soaking up all the GOP-loving attention, O'Donnell claimed he was ``Dr. Brett O'Donnell,'' citing a Ph.D from Penn State University. Jesus knows better -- and so too does the administrative brass in Happy Valley. O'Donnell holds a Master's Degree. Did he confess his sins? Nope, he just buried 'em. Liberty U scrubbed its website clean of "Dr." references around O'Donnell -- but the magic of Google helped unscrub the obfuscation.

Pride. Isn't that one of the seven deadlies? I learned that from that Brad Pitt movie. Mmmmm. Brad Pitt.
