That Liberty Law hearing

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) has objected to the recent hearing conducted by the U.S. Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals at Liberty University School of Law. Excerpt from this Lynchburg News & Advance report:
“Our secular military and its secular military justice system have no business conducting secular military justice at an exclusive sectarian institution with an extreme sectarian reputation,” MRFF board member and retired Army Brig. Gen. John Compere said in a statement. “It implies an endorsement of the sectarian institution & its sectarian education which clearly violates the United States Constitution and US Armed Forces regulations.”

  1. Would the MRFF have the same objections if a military Court of Appeals held a session at a different denominational university, but one whose academic credentials are less dubious, e.g. Notre Dame or Fordham? I have some difficulty with the idea of the court hearing briefs from people who have no skin in the game as litigants or as representatives of genuine civil liberties groups.
