"My rules for thee, but not for me"
 
2020-08-05 8:38:08 AM  
I'm more shocked that his followers are dumb enough to believe in his bullsh*t. But, whatever. Not that shocked.

Those "rules" seem to be every reason that I wouldn't want to ever attend a "university" that had those rules.

Drinking smoking states of undress--ummm sign this farker up when he was 18...hell sign me up for that now.

Green says that unbuttoning one's pants could get someone "$150 and/or 15 hours or community service for being in 'any state of undress with a member or the opposite sex.'"

Much like a Nigerian scammer intentionally using bad grammar, cults typically have "weed-out" conditions that get rid of pesky people who tend to ask questions and generally be dangerous to the aims of the cult.

More than that, the fact that he is boozing it up on a yacht and obviously nailing some floozy, it's that he posed for a farking picture.

If I was a big enough scumbag to where I espoused religious virtue and morality and condemned anyone who didn't live up to what I was shoveling so I could collect money from shiatloads of "true believers", there's no farking way I would even allow goddamn cameras on my liquor fark boat.  That's the height of arrogance.  He doesn't really give a fark because of those "true believers" - they're going to forgive him no matter what...so fark LU for being "outraged".

Sure they are.

FTA: According to Liberty student Alexandra Green, the photo shows Falwell to be even more of a hypocrite than people realize.

Green does not know just how much of a hypocrite many people believe Jerry Falwell, Jr. to be.
 
2020-08-05 10:03:14 AM  
As was discussed in the previous thread, he claimed it was not any kind of alcoholic beverage - just "black water" that he had as a "prop."

Which is freaking weird - the standard fundie denial is to claim it's coke or iced tea and implicitly dare anyone to accuse you of lying. Saying it's a "prop" means you want it to look like booze, which in fundie world is almost as bad as actual booze in terms of harming your "witness."

Christians are hypocrites, news at 11.

"The photo shows the Liberty University president on a yacht with his pants unzipped and his shirt pulled up exposing his belly, with a woman he identified as a "friend" standing next to him with her pants similarly unzipped as Falwell has his hand around her waist, holding a glass containing some sort of dark liquid."

Sounds about right for a "socially conservative religious leader".

I'm shocked he was banging a woman.
 
2020-08-05 10:04:54 AM  
a deleted video suggests that Falwell and guests were possibly attending a party that was themed after the TV show Trailer Park Boys.

A stunning lapse in my pop culture IQ is that I've never watched TPB. Do any characters in it actually resemble these two?

Because nobody in the clips or outtakes I've ever seen do.

Also LOL at "adults" who would willingly sign up for rules like no drinking or associating with member of the opposite sex. Religious people are farking weird.
 
2020-08-05 10:04:54 AM  
I think begging on street corners is a far more honorable trade than working for Liberty "University".

/if I saw that on a resume, hard pass!

you're a farking idiot.

No wonder the students had to go back before he ran out of money!

I really can't imagine people who don't see through that jackass. And similar. But they don't. Jim Bakker literally sucked his teeth in satisfaction on the 700 Club and bozos still turned in.

What a Trailer Park Boys-themed party might look like....
 
2020-08-05 10:06:58 AM  
It's a fake school run by grifters, so....
 
2020-08-05 10:07:37 AM  
Isn't hypocrisy one of the commandments, that you're supposed to commit?
 
2020-08-05 10:07:41 AM  
organized religion is really just organized hypocrisy.

"Lets all get together & be hypocrites about the same things!"

It's supposedly a Trailer Park Boys themed party. I think one of the characters does her hair like that, but I'm not sure, I could never get into that show.

it was some kind of trailer park theme party.
Hence the "prop".

Dear Liberty University students:

It's all a con, go do something else that makes you happy.

p.s. yes, everyone knew it was a con but you

Well they are liberty students, like what you couldn't get into a real college. I think they will find their career options limited until they scrub that from their resume.

Sorta.  There are a few girls in the park that she could be portraying.  I hadn't thought about it, but with the exposed belly, he could be cosplaying Randy-bo-Bandy.  He's a few cheeseburgers short of that one-pack though.

From the article.  "Alexandra Green, the photo shows Falwell to be even more of a hypocrite than people realize."
Nope not at all.
He is the hypocrite I always knew him to be.  It is just that you are realizing it.  Also those rules you hate are the reason your parents sent you there.
 
2020-08-05 10:13:10 AM  
I mean, why wouldn't he post it?  What consequences is he going to face?  It's not like y'all conservatives are holding any of your political or spiritual (and they're often both) to account.

They do this because your tribe is more important to you than your principals.  Until that changes, why should any of your leaders give a shiat about you?
 
2020-08-05 10:14:44 AM  
hypocrisy, in Christianity? never...

Concur!

Gawd Damnit so much... Wasted 4 years on a business degree and quit w/2 classes to go because I don't want to be associated w/the Liberty Cult..... Shopping for a new-non-partisan-non-religious university. They bait you in with low tuition rates, especially for military and first responders.
Just sat a stack of course books - at least $5k worth on the sidewalk for Craigs list - advertised as good kindling for your bonfires...
PS- I'm old and have a great job - didn't even need a degree. Still want to complete it because I hate leaving "things" unfinished.
 
2020-08-05 10:15:20 AM  
How many of his pool boys did he bring?  He's the farking worst.  I live about 25 minutes from Liberty now.  I actually feel bad for a lot of the kids that go there.  There are a ton of parents that make their kids go, like my wife's step-uncle, who is a total asshole.  I think pretending to be a Christian makes him feel empowered to be an even bigger dick than he otherwise would be.

University of Maryland has a good distance learning program through their Global Campus (used to be UMUC) that caters to former and active military.

At least the athletes are still there to turn Liberty U into a sports powerhouse, right?
 
2020-08-05 10:20:38 AM  
So Jerry should be removed from the Liberty University Board, right? Right?!
 
2020-08-05 10:20:41 AM  
I love it. They buy wholeheartedly into the complete hypocrisy of what Christianity is, and expect there to not be a scam behind it?!?

ROFLMAO

//you deserve complete scorn if you believe in any of the Abrahamic religion.

Trailer Park Boys has a character named Julian who always wears a black T shirt and always, always, ALWAYS has a drink in his hand. He doesn't walk around with his pants unzipped, nor does any other character on the show, so I dunno what that's aboot.

/They're Canadian

That's Randys belly.  Or could be, after enough cheesburgers.
 
2020-08-05 10:23:43 AM  
The fact that he has a yacht should ring alarm bells if you had two brain cells to rub together. Do you really think people buy yachts to be good citizens and spread the gospel in the open waters?

The entire purpose of a yacht is to commit wanton sin and debauchery. They really serve no other purpose.

If I had to guess by looking at the pic.  He's dressed up like Julian, which would make sense since Julian is never without a rum and coke in his hand.  And she's dressed up like Sarah.  She has her hair dyed that color and fixes it in that style.

Someone should open a fake school (like that movie) and have the kids go there instead.
