Jerry Falwell Jr. agrees to resign from Liberty University

https://www.washingtonpost.com/education/2020/08/24/jerry-falwell-jr-agrees-resign-liberty-university/

Jerry Falwell Jr. has agreed to resign as president of Liberty University on Monday, according to a school official. The move came after a series of personal scandals rocked the evangelical university he has led since 2007.

Opposition to his presidency had been growing but came to a dramatic head after two new reports about a young man Falwell and his wife befriended at a Florida pool, went into business with and who allegedly was sexually connected to the couple. One report painted Falwell as the victim of an obsessive affair; the other as an eager participant manipulating a naive young man.

Falwell had been placed on paid leave Aug. 7 after he posted a provocative picture of himself and his wife’s assistant on social media. Both had their zippers partially down and Falwell was holding a dark beverage he joked was nonalcoholic and “just a prop.” Drinking or being around alcohol as well as sexual promiscuity are banned for students under Liberty’s personal code of conduct. Liberty board members had said in a statement Friday that they were investigating.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

The 'pool man' had a year long affair with Falwell's wife--- with his knowledge, and he liked to watch as they had sex.

And Mike Cohen used that information about the pool boy to blackmail an endorsement for trump out of Fallwell. Another religious right hypocrite hits the dust pile.

Possibly but not necessarily. A guy I went to college with worked awhile as a sex surrogate for a couple in which the husband could not perform. He lingered about for safety/security of his wife. Friend said it was weird as hell at first but he kind of got used to it after the first few times.

I have nothing but respect for Evangelical Christians, Baptists, Congregationalists, and other far-right Christian sects who walk the walk and abide by the exacting strictures of their faith. It was these very same sects that formed the core of the Abolitionist, Women's Suffragist and Temperance movements that bettered this country immeasurably. They formed the moral backbone and the inheritance of social capital of our country that practically all of the rest of us, secularists like me, included have been mining to this day. But I have no tolerance for hypocrites.

I wish Liberty University the best of luck getting past this shameful display of self-indulgent hypocrisy.

I will not judge consensual actions between the Falwells and another person but if those actions run completely contrary to what Falwell publicly advocates and demands of students at his college then he deserves to be roundly condemned of gross hypocrisy.

Imagine you are a student or former student who was fined or told to leave the school because of conduct far less racy then what this guy and his wife did. I have no problem with consenting adults doing whatever they want sexually but when you run a university based upon a code you cannot follow yourself and punish kids and parents when they break that code, you are toast in my book.

HAaaaaaaaaaaaa!! IS he?? :shock:

No... that was actually 2016.

But if the fate of 2016 GOP speakers will reflect 2020 speakers, its probably best to decline.

Chris Collins - GOP rep - actually officially nominated Trump at the 2016 convention. He pleaded guilty to multiple felonies and faces a 2 year prison sentence.

Jeff Sessions - career ruined.
Joe Arpaio - career ruined.
Ryan Zinke - career ruined- sleazy stuff at DOI
David Clarke - the black cowboy sheriff. Imploded.
Antonio Sabato Jr - career ruined. Works construction now.
Scott Baio - career was already ruined. No change.
Michael Flynn- plead guilty to felonies. Traitor.
Chris Cox- #2 guy at NRA. Needless to say, career ruined.

Not to worry, he'll eventually give one of those tearful confessions where he says he's sinned and that will be that.

The christian right will shrug it off and it will be forgotten next month.

Apparently, much like most male LU students, this is premature.

‘I’m gonna try to be a good boy’: Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. apologizes for posting a photo on Instagram showing him in unzipped pants and his arm around a woman


Jerry Falwell Jr. apologizes for post with his pants unzipped

Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. apologized Wednesday following backlash over an Instagram post from his family vacation

The leading evangelical Trump supporter was blasted as a hypocrite for posting a picture with his pants unzipped and midriff exposed

The university he leads has a strict code of conduct that would condemn students for a similar post
