Something to do with Mitt Romney, I suspect. The Anchorman delivered the commencement speech at Liberty University, which is odd since Jerry Falwell’s college teaches that Mormonism is a cult.
“The history, doctrines, and present state of the major cults such as Mormonism, Christian Science, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventism. The course will also include a study of the Occult Movement. Emphasis is placed on the errors of these groups and on methods and materials for confronting them effectively.”
But while Romney mentioned the words “God” and “Jesus” nearly two dozen times during his remarks, he never uttered the word “Mormon.”
Naturally, the man who once said he’d do more to promote gay rights than Ted Kennedy didn’t pass up a guaranteed applause line.
“Marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman,” Romney said to deafening cheers.
