Sean Hannity “Phones In” Liberty University Address

Reported by Priscilla - October 18, 2009 -

While it is true that Sean Hannity does not have a college degree, the same can be said for NBC’s Brian Williams. Williams, however, who actually reports on the news and does not promote an agenda of hate and intolerance, does have a number of honorary degrees from esteemed institutions such as Catholic University, Providence College (Dominican Friars school), Ohio State, and Bates College. Hannity, on the other hand, has received just one honorary degree not from any Catholic colleges or esteemed mainstream schools – but from Liberty University, a school grounded in conservative Christianity and which recently offered a scholarship to a true victim of the “gay agenda,” ex Miss California, Carrie Prejean. This year, Sean Hannity (a paragon of Christian “family values” whose message is sure to bring a smile to the baby Jesus) was booked to give an address at the Liberty Commencement – along with fellow Fox employee and paragon of Christian “family values,” Karl Rove. Alas, poor Sean was sick. But not to worry. Sean got his chubby fingers working and dialed in his pearls of wisdom. Oh, praise the Lord!

Liberty has strict codes of conduct (no dancing let alone sex!) which prepare the students for a life of GOP virtue. Like Regent, another Petri dish for aspiring young Republicans, it is considered “fourth tier.” And like ACORN, Liberty had a recent problem with voter registrations – something that Hannity didn’t seem to be concerned about unlike his frequent excoriations of ACORN! In their zeal to register lots of new sainted GOP voters, in order to be the “college that elected a president,” they produced new registrations that were "illegible, incomplete, or otherwise ineligible." They also shut down the college Democratic club because Jesus only loves Republicans. But it does recognize good Christians when they see them and Hannity was considered good enough to be bestowed an honorary degree in 2005. (Did he provide tickets to any of his gal pals at the Bunny Ranch?) The late Jerry Falwell, who claimed that gays caused 9-11 (yeah, I know he apologized, but still….), loved Hannity whom he felt was “fighting the battle for freedom on the frontlines for us every day.”

So without further ado, I give you part of Hannity’s phoned in address:

“This is the future leadership of America. … Right now this country is in need of a lot of leadership,” he said. “There’s a lot of kids there who are going to be going into a lot of different fields. I’m really looking forward to people of faith, people of principle, people with character, people with good values taking those positions of leadership; there’s no telling where that will take this student body, when they graduate, when they go out into the world, the impact that they’re going to have to make this world a better place.”… “There is no obstacle, there is nothing that can get in your way if you put Jesus Christ first in your life, if you put God first in your life, and you put doing what is right first in your life. There is nothing you won’t be able to achieve and great things will happen if you do it, if that priority remains in its proper order.”

Ahhh, Sean Hannity – a man who walks with Jesus. “Shall we gather at the river, Where bright angels he has brought…”
