Liberty University, a conservative Christian university was denied a venue at the Supreme Court.

The country's most conservatively Christian university has been handed a defeat.

The Associated Press reports The Supreme Court has turned away a Christian university's attempt to overturn a key part of the Obama administration's health care law.

The justices did not comment Monday in leaving in place a federal appeals court ruling dismissing Liberty University's lawsuit.
Affirmative Action case is on the docket. 
Liberty made several arguments in challenging the portion of the health care law that requires most employers to provide health insurance to their workers or pay a fine. The 4th U.S. Circuit of Appeals in Richmond, Va., rejected those claims.

The Supreme Court separately is considering whether for-profit corporations can mount religious objections to the law's requirement to include birth control among preventive health benefits.

The case is Liberty University v. Lew, 13-306

Jerry Falwell, the late founder of the university.
The Jerry Falwell founded institution is still working in them "good ole days" of segregation.

The Republican faithful flock to the college to deliver their commencement speeches and presidential ambitions. Many have thanked the holier than thou Jerry Falwell on christening their legacies.

It was the tool to victory during the 1970s to 1990s. You had to speak at Liberty University if you're seeking the Republican nomination. Nowadays, you can't get a boost in credibility if you're too conservative.

Perennial loser Mitt Romney found out the hard way about carrying his ass to the right.

Liberty University is a private, Christian university located in Lynchburg, Virginia. It is the largest Evangelical Christian university in the world, the nation's largest private nonprofit university and 7th largest four-year university, and the largest university in Virginia.

The university was founded as Lynchburg Baptist College in 1971 by right wing bigot Jerry Falwell.

Liberty University describes itself as a Christian academic community. Its stated mission and aims emphasize both the intellectual and spiritual development of the institution's students.

Students are held to The Liberty Way, a strict morality code of behavioral conduct.
