Would Liberty invite an Muslim to speak at commencement?

I doubt it and as a "the world's largest Christian university" they certainly shouldn't. So why in the world is this happening?

Jerry Falwell Jr., chancellor of Liberty University, announced Friday that Fox News commentator Glenn Beck, will deliver the commencement address at the Lynchburg campus’s May 15 graduation, the News & Advance reports.

“Beck is one of the few courageous voices in the national media standing up for the principles upon which this nation was founded,” Falwell said in a news release.

Can you imagine if a famous Muslim imam was the keynote speaker? At least Muslims are monotheistic unlike Glenn Beck. I wonder if Jerry Jr. knows that Beck is a mormon and that as such he is a member of a church that considers Thomas Road Baptist Church, the church founded by his father and pastored by his brother, to be an abomination? The announcement on Liberty's webpage makes no mention of the fact that Beck is a mormon and believes that Jesus Christ is the brother of Satan, only an oblique mention of the diversity of speakers invited to speak at Liberty. So much for not being unequally yoked.

I guess at Liberty, having the right politics trumps the Gospel.
