Patrick Henry College
|Christ died so we could write articles on|
Patrick Henry College a.k.a. "God's Harvard" is a college in Purcellville, Virginia, which caters to Christians, especially those who have been homeschooled. The college teaches that the Bible is the inerrant word of God, and creationism is taught as literal fact. Michael Farris, the founder and chancellor of the college, stated on the Colbert Report that if a student was to write "Goddidit" on a biology test, that would be a correct answer. Students may not drink alcohol, smoke or mess with the opposite sex outside marriage during term time on or off campus.
The college is one of the biggest supporters of Bible Bees.
 Statement of Faith
PHC requires incoming students and faculty and staff to sign a "Statement of Faith" which includes such gems as "Satan exists as a personal, malevolent being who acts as tempter and accuser, for whom Hell, the place of eternal punishment, was prepared, where all who die outside of Christ shall be confined in conscious torment for eternity."
 Statement of Biblical Worldview
PHC also requires all trustees, administrators, and faculty to "attest" to a further statement, called the "Statement of Biblical Worldview", which can be roughly summarized as:
- The Universe? Goddidit!
- Evolution is wrong
- Homosexuality is sin.
- Jesus saved us from the penalties of sin.
 Political office
One of the purposes of Patrick Henry College is to train committed Christians for government posts,  and many graduates of the College found positions in the Bush administration.  The UK based Wilberforce Academy jointly set up by the Alliance Defense Fund (US based) and the Christian Legal Centre (UK based) has a similar purpose.
 Mass resignation of professors, heretics, etc.
In 2006, five professors at Patrick Henry College, who at the time constituted an entire third of the faculty, resigned from the institution, alluding to the rather obvious fact that academic freedom is badly proscribed there. One of their complaints concerned the firing of a library clerk for heresy, viz., for believing in baptismal regeneration along with all Eastern Christians, Roman Catholics, Lutherans, and Anglicans. One of the resigning professors, David Noe, a minister of the fundamentalist Orthodox Presbyterian Church, was under fire for writing an article containing the blasphemous suggestion that any books besides the Bible possessed any truthful or otherwise useful content.
