Liberty University Textbook Omits Content on Sexual Orientation

Liberty University in Virginia has ordered custom textbooks that omit a section on sexual motivation and orientation, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

Heather Elaine Medvedenko, an instructor at the Christian university in Lynchburg, told students in her psychology course that the content on the books was presented in a way that could be misinterpreted.

The private university said in a statement that custom textbooks are used to create a course designed specifically to meet the predetermined program outcomes.

The statement also said that deleted content is reviewed to ensure that it is covered by other courses that provide more in-depth coverage on the topic.

Medvedenko also told students that Christian scholars should be educated in all areas of psychology and allowed to filter material through a biblical view.
