False Lips at Liberty University

Jerry Falwell's Liberty University has formed a committee to investigate the truthfulness of the head of its theological seminary, one Ergun Caner, who apparently has made quite the name for himself masquerading for American fundamentalists as a former jihadist and "terrorist" whom Jesus saved and then installed in a high-paying job at the United States' holiest institution of higher learning.

To Jerry Falwell Junior's great chagrin, it was bloggers, the spawn of Satan, who began punching holes in Caner's fake biography.

But when less Satanic Southern Baptist bloggers start writing stuff like this, you know you're in trouble:
He never came to America "via Beirut and Cairo." He has never been trained as a fundamentalist Muslim. He has never been a jihadist. He has never debated top Muslim scholars, in Nebraska or anywhere else. It is impossible for any of us to understand why someone would fabricate or embellish his past, but there's a great deal of money to be made selling books and DVDs about Islam in post 9/11 [America]. Who's a better expert on the subject than a radical jihadist who has converted to faith in Jesus Christ, right?

It can't do Liberty University's reputation among the Brethren much good to have a publicly exposed Giant Liar in charge of training its preachers.

No doubt it was a 9/11 inside job that got him to fake it at Liberty!
