Also, Liberty University receives federal funding, as do other conservative religious schools. Will those schools be forced to allow pro-LGBT speech or left-wing speech on their campuses? What if this concept starts to get further weaponized and expanded by both sides to threaten any private institution that gets a leg up from the state? Will Facebook and Google stop getting tax breaks for deplatforming conspiracy nuts? How far can this go?
Unfortunately, as much as I would laugh my ass off if Liberty University were caught under this, everything I've read indicates that the only way Liberty University gets federal funding is through student tuition (loans, grants, etc) and that is exempt from the executive order. I had assumed they much get some money from somewhere else, basically any university doing any kind of research will get federal grants somewhere. Not sure why I assumed that Liberty University actually does legitimate research, guess that's my naivety showing.
