I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Bob McDonnell’s Regent University Thesis

As I noted yesterday, Bob McDonnell wrote a thesis while attending Regent University in the 90s that appears to on the verge of becoming a campaign issue. It is, to say the least, radically far to the right and certainly doesn’t sound like the Bob McDonnell running for Governor.

Should it be an issue ten years after it was written ?

Read it for yourself, and decide:

Regent University Thesis Of Bob McDonnell

I’m going to make my way through this as fast as I can and will likely have more to say about it in the near future.

    Without having read it, the comments suggest a knee-jerk reaction to the notion of feminism as an ideology (which, as far as I’m concerned, has no negative connotations). I knew a visiting prof at Carleton College who got into trouble by daring to suggest such a “radical” notion in a lecture.

    On a brief read through it almost seems like he is advocating that America become a Christian Theocracy and that our social values need to shift back to something like those of the 19th century where marriage can not result in divorce and women are relegated to the home.

  3. Vast says:

    It’s relevant to the campaign if he still believes in what he wrote. It’s a question that needs to be asked.
