“Liberty University” was trending nationally this morning as GOP candidate Mitt Romney delivered the school’s commencement address. Video here:

The brief speech touched on everything from the economy to faith to Chick-fil-A:

In the story of Mormonism, speech Romney just gave at Liberty was a historic moment. The highest-profile attempt yet to bridge rival faiths

"The Romney campaign comes to a sudden stop when we spot a Chick-fil-A." — Mitt Romney at Liberty U. today.

But Twitter buzz focused largely on what are clearly the two most pressing issues of our time.

Gay marriage:

"Marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman," Romney says. Gets a standing ovation at Liberty University.

Except for Mormons then its one man five women @nprnews: Romney At Liberty: Marriage Is One Man, One Woman http://t.co/THglbOG0

And Romney’s Mormon faith:

Mitt Romney is currently speaking at Liberty University, an Evangelical college that teaches Mormonism is a cult. Mitt Romney is Mormon.

Good little progressives took their cue from a BuzzFeed post published yesterday titled “Mormon Cultist For President!”:

My dispatch from Liberty University, where Romney will speak tomorrow: "At Liberty, a Mormon Cultist for President" http://t.co/FIByPkiZ

Big Journalism smacked down the smear of Liberty University students and Mitt Romney this morning:

Meanwhile, the lapdog media happily parroted the Left’s “Mormon cultist” talking point of the day:

CNN reminds America that Liberty teaches that Romney's Mormon faith is viewed as a cult.

— toddstarnes (@toddstarnes) May 12, 2012

LOL @ the CNN chyron right now: "Liberty University teaches Romney's faith is a cult"

— Joshua Pugh (@JPughMI) May 12, 2012

CNN has had the "Liberty University teaches Romney's faith is cult" chryon up for ages now.

— Brandon Kiser (@Kiser) May 12, 2012

Where were the CNN chryons when Obama super PAC donor Bill Maher called Mormonism a cult?

The Left had plenty of new tone-y comments:

Shorter Romney to Liberty U: I urge u to place ur racial ignorance above ur religious intolerance. Vote against the Negro! <crowd roars> #p2

— Very Serious People™ (@TheXclass) May 12, 2012

@AlexWitt Romney @ Liberty U: marriage is between a man and a woman and a woman and a woman and a woman.

— Katy Baliya (@katyscarlett71) May 12, 2012

Mitt Romney running the speedometer on the DeLorean to 1200AD for the Liberty U crowd, because the 19th century was still way too modern.

— DANNI CRANE (@DCPlod) May 12, 2012
