WOW! Think of all the times he "slut-shamed" some student that got pregnant, or called out a gay kid in front of their families and churches. And he's been having "cream-pie" for dessert, all along, I guess it's true, Christians aren't perfect just forgiven,(so ya may as well do a "dirty Sanchez" for ya die)

That's just it. I wouldn't care in the slightest if the three of them were engaged in this relationship as consenting adults. It's that he holds himself up as a pinnacle of Christian virtue and shames others.

Falwell is now saying he hasn't resigned. He may be toast, but he's still in the toaster.

Update:

Press release by Liberty University

Quote:
Lynchburg, VA—On the first day of classes of Liberty University’s fall term, Jerry Falwell, Jr., agreed to resign as its President and from its Board of Directors, but following media reports about the resignation, withdrew it.

The Executive Committee’s Board of Trustees asked Falwell to go on indefinite leave of absence on August 7, to which he agreed. Since that time, additional matters came to light that made it clear that it would not be in the best interest of the University for him to return from leave and serve as President. The Executive Committee met this morning and a conference call gathering of the full Board was planned for tomorrow.
https://www.liberty.edu/news/2020/08...verses-course/

Resignations from corporate entities have to be in writing so Falwell bugged out.
He will be gone tomorrow.

WSJ reports Falwell caved and sent a letter of resignation last night:

https://www.wsj.com/articles/jerry-f...on-11598319341

Quote:
In a phone call to The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Falwell said he had just sent his resignation letter to the board of the Christian school in Virginia.
By the postal service or drop it off with the board's Chairman or Secretary? If by postal service it won't be effective when the board meets today unless it's received by then which is unlikely. It might even just be a claim so the board doesn't take formal action to remove him as they await the formal resignation.

He also made an interesting claim to the Journal:

Quote:
“The board put me on leave, took away my duties as prez, and that’s not permitted by my contract,” Mr. Falwell said Monday night.
Laws do not allow contracts to require a board to guarantee anyone a position such as CEO or President as a matter of public policy. Can't be done and any contract purporting to do so is void. I believe when Falwell was suspended, he continued to be paid. Contracts can require that.

Likely Falwell is simply confused.

Values dissonance all over the place! If I were involved with that college I'd be a lot more pissed off about the money shenanigans than voyeurism. But fraud, embezzlement, and theft are all okay so long as nothing sexual is going on! And the sex...apparently he just watched? That's pretty tame stuff.

I'm anxiously awaiting the "University" trying to figure out how half their assests wound up in Falwell's name. Starting with the house they supposedly sold to his son.

Jerry Falwell Jr Leaves Liberty University

Conspiracy theory for your consideration:

When Falwell Jr endorsed philandering, pussy-grabbing, thrice-married vulgarian Donald J Trump, there were still two religious evangelicals in the race. Cruz and Rubio. Given that the Falwell’s cabana boy was in a hostel in South Beach, and Trump and his minions are Florida men, is it possible that they blackmailed Falwell with a threat of exposure of his swinging lifestyle back then?

Chances are that Falwell's predilections were well-known among his associates and probably the whole "Liberty University" organisation, and perhaps by his local community in general. It may well transpire that they, too, are indulging similar saucy escapades, so his are probably not a one-off. Most TV evangelists get caught up in money, sex and drugs scandals, usually all at once.

Blackmail requires the threat of publicity to be effective. In this case, if most people around them knew, the threat is probably not very effective.

I think Trump only wants the evangelical vote so he can win elections. He really doesn't give a flying about them at any other time.

Yeah, remember that the reason Liberty needs him to resign is because it makes them very hard to impose their oppressive rules on students' personal lives when the President is a kink-fiend.

Pretty shameful behavior by Falwell. Obviously failing to live up to the Christian standards he allegedly professes. Not even a good kinkster either, he tried to save his reputation by throwing his wife under the bus by claiming she had an "affair" that he forgave. Trying to paint your consensual cucking as a shameful affair is pretty ****** behavior, if you ask me.

It guess it's a bit funny to know this dude likes to watch his wife get rammed by the pool boy, but the real moral failure is Falwell's total cowardice and hypocrisy.

That's really it here. How many kids killed themselves because he told them what they were was shameful and evil? How many families were torn apart because parents couldn't accept that their kid was LGBTQ? That's why I'm enjoying is downfall so much. If he'd kept his mouth shut on the topic, I really wouldn't care.

Yeah, I've had it up to here -- wherever you imagine my hand is -- with homophobic religion. The dirty secret in Utah is the rate of LGBTQ+ suicide attempts. Suicide is the leading cause of death for Utah teenagers. Demographically we don't have enough data yet to see if sexuality correlates, but the LGBTQ+ outreach people I've heard speak noted a sharp rise in suicide ideation among the youth they serve. It coincided with a shift in Mormon church policy that added penalties for associating with same-sex attraction in any way (such as having same-sex parents). Only now are the numbers starting to come down.

Hence I have very little patience with or sympathy for these hypocrites. If they're going to get rich and famous by preaching a morality they neither agree with nor can achieve, then I say they should be exposed and publicly shamed. It's harmful to others and not something a civilized society should tolerate.

Is cucking actually against any tenets of the version of Christianity the Falwells presumably espouse (no pun intended)? Technically she's broken one of the Ten Commandments, but if he just watched then he didn't do any adultery. He may have coveted the other guy's ass, though, but that's difficult to prove.

Chauncey Hardener - I like to watch.

Probably partying on a yacht and buying your poolboy a gay hostel are against some tenets of theirs.

Perhaps he was doing God's work by trying to convert the pool boy to the pleasures of heterosexual sex.

The pool boy suggested Falwell was doing more than just watching. He said: "Without going into detail, Falwell was ENJOYING himself".
