""We're conservative, we're Christian, and therefore we're being attacked," he said."

Well, he learned well from his father--it's all identity politics. If you do something dumb (or, in this case, fatally dumb), and anyone points it out, claim you're the real victim here.

What the article only briefly alludes to is that staff are being required to come to work. It mentions students and faculty, but it's staff who'll get sick. And then they'll go home to spread it in their neighborhoods. Virginia is two weeks from getting really ugly.

They're able to continue processing bills for dorm rooms, prepaid food, and tuition requirements?
"Hey, we're open...pay up"

Aren't Christians supposed to be caring and understanding, and not divisive and intolerant?  And what's up with this weird fetish for the President?  Hail Caeser, yes, by all means, I of all people would never discourage that.  But don't be an embarrassment, man.

Though the current crisis would appear epidemiological in nature, Dr. Eppes said he saw it as a reflection of "the political divide."

"If Liberty sneezes, there are people who don't like the fact that Liberty sneezed," he said in an interview. "Mr. Falwell called me to listen to a view that wasn't exactly his. Great leaders do that type of thing."


First of all, what the everloving fark? What does that even mean? Second, I hope the 'school' gets sued into bankruptcy and if one student or staff member dies I want to see manslaughter charges against both of these chuckleheads.

I don't like the fact that Liberty sneezed.  BECAUSE THEY IGNORED THEIR PEERS AND EXPERTS AND DECIDED TO REOPEN.

He's a Republican and, therefore, a good Christian man

Put a fence around it.

Of the 1,900 students who initially returned last week to campus, Mr. Falwell said more than 800 had left.

Oops, too late.

How many pool boys are still employed and working "closely" with the Falwells?
 
2020-03-29 6:55:06 PM  
Those kids need to sue Jerry Falwell to the 10th circle of Hell.
 
2020-03-29 7:00:37 PM  
Falwell has previously dismissed concerns of the coronavirus and billed it as an attempt to hurt President Donald Trump politically.

Well, from a certain point of view, he isn't wrong.

/It's just the matter of who is responsible for that.
 
2020-03-29 7:04:38 PM  
The only good thing about this situation is Jerry opened himself up to be sued out of business.
 
2020-03-29 7:21:48 PM  
Jesus came down, and saved them all from brown people and China-Virus?

*clicks link*

Ohhhhh boy, didn't see that coming

/everyone did
 
2020-03-29 7:44:07 PM  
Now would be the time to file lawsuits before Jerry destroys all the hard drives, shreds documents, and sends his rent boys back to their farms in Iowa and their islands in the Caribbean.
 
2020-03-29 7:47:45 PM  
It's "give me liberty *or* give me death"

Not "give me liberty *and* give me death"

/hope they get sued into oblivion

Every once in a while, God really *is* trying to tell these assholes something and they are invariably oblivious

Self reflection is not their strong suit.

I am, unfortunately, currently local to Liberty and one of the commercials for their church states it's for "people who love God and because of that love people".

It's because of twats like this that you are going to be burying upwards of a million covid-19 victims before Christmas.
 
2020-03-29 7:55:51 PM  
They're giving Lynchburg a bad name

I sure wish folks' resumes from LU would come across my desk occasionally so I could have the joy of hurling them unread into the garbage after a hearty "stopped reading there."

I second the idea of calling it the Orange Death.

They tried to convert the cable to Christianity?
 
2020-03-29 7:59:27 PM  
Wait wait, don't tell me...Falwell is a farking idiot.

That's right, isn't it?

No moron. You're being singled out for being a right wing nut, hiding under the Christian umbrella.
You better hope your belief system is false, otherwise, you're going to have some explaining to do come your judgement day.

People who attend universities are the smartest people. And people who run the universities have been to a university, so they are very smart.
But as in life, there are exceptions to every rule. I present to you, Liberty University.

These aren't Christians. These are death cultists.

I know, hard to tell them apart.

It's gonna get awkward when those students hire lawyers who don't have Liberty degrees.

Yes, and deservedly so.

How did they get so many America-hating hell-bound RINO atheists at their school?

And let me guess they had one of their mandatory rallies for all the students to attend. And explain to them the hoax going on too?
