Drone Operators for Christ

Now, I will be the first to admit that drone aircraft have other uses aside from killing Muslims in Pakistan. But given that Liberty University bills itself as “one of America’s top military-friendly schools,” and considering that the school has more than 23,000 online students are in the military, and given the school’s track record as a warvangelical school, I wonder how many students in Liberty’s drone aircraft training program will end up piloting drones for the DOD or CIA? Or as a local cop fighting the war on drugs? I am no fan of the theology of Sojourners, but there is a good article in the July issue about how Liberty University “became an evangelist for drone warfare.”
