He would never have willingly resigned without addressing this possibility. The investigation will be thorough but inconclusive, and in the end all parties will accept that it's in the best interests of all involved to move quietly on.

Mr. Falwell, can you please explain to this committee what it means to "prep the bull"?

I think I read somewhere that he said that he was happy to step down because he didn't feel like he was really called to be much of a preacher, and that he was more a businessman.  what the living hell.  you take advantage of your dads identity as a preacher, and present yourself as a God fearing guy, and all the while you really dont believe it.  if that aint hypocrisy i dont know what is.

I'm sure that after a VERY thorough investigation, including any associated media, as well as maybe some light role play, they will decide there's no rule stating that everything that happened was perfectly allowable.
 
2020-09-03 9:43:59 AM  
Gee, I wonder why that might be....

"In a statement Tuesday, Granda accused Falwell of being a "predator," saying he'd sent Granda an image of a female Liberty University student exposing herself at their farm.

Falwell said Granda may have been referring to an incident when he and his wife were out of town. His daughters-in-law and a friend were using the family's guesthouse to cook a meal, Falwell said, and the friend pulled up her skirt, as a joke, while she was cooking. "

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


There is a very real possibility that Falwell was getting some on the side himself, and moreover it's quite possible he was using his spiritual and institutional authority to do it. And if so, Liberty's collective ass could very well be on the line.

I mean no rule against it. Stupid keyboard.

In a few years someone is going to find out the Falwells moved to a big farm in the country staffed with a bunch of black and/or brown "farmhands" while both Mr. and Mrs. Falwell prance around in matching lingerie.

/happy Thursday. Try and get that image out of your head.

Falwell, university president since 2007, acknowledged his wife's extramarital affair but said he was not involved and that he and Becki forgave each other.

If she had the affair, why would you need to 'forgive each other'?

Other than, she had an affair, that you encouraged to the point of watching her get raw dogged by the pool boy.
Then you got caught, and now you're so very sorry and have forgiven each other, and we need to all forget that you have been pretending to be the moral compass for evangelicals.

No, no, no.

See, Junior here made an unforgivable mistake. He put the cash flow at risk. They're going to investigate him, they're going to find some anomalies, they're going to refer him to the authorities.

They will have "proven that the institution is greater than any one man", and the money will continue to flow.

Besides, we've all known people who got a powerful job just because of who their dad was, and don't tell me you haven't wanted to punch That Guy at least once.

I swear, some of y'all just don't understand Southern church committee politics.

If they charge the cost of the investigation to The Falwell, he may owe them money rather than earning that $10 million severance.

When religious institutions do something "formally," isn't it marked with a ceremony and all kinds of pageantry?  It seems like every last one of them ends up like this.
 
2020-09-03 10:06:22 AM  
The nice part about Liberty University driving the investigation is they can conclude whatever they want and enact whatever punishment they want and only release the details they want.  There's no way they ever publicly release anything they find, that only ruins their reputation too.
So they can investigate and determine Falwell farked 17 pool boys himself while extorting a dozen others and his wife had 7 children with pool boys they paid off to keep quiet.  Then they can reach a settlement with a non-disclosure agreement with the Falwells where he gets a fraction of his severance package.  Then they both release a statement saying the investigation has been completed where some behavior that does not meet Liberty University's standards was identified and agreement has been reached and both parties are bound by NDAs and cannot give any further details.
 
2020-09-03 10:08:12 AM  
And so it begins....that moment when you realize that the institution is bigger than the man.

Liberty is going to tear this man down, as well they should, but they aren't doing it out of a sense of moral justice. They are doing it so they can point and say "SEE??? We aren't like him."

There may even end up being charges when they drill down to the sweet-heart deal he gave the "fitness instructor".

One thing is for sure in the whole "like to watch other men plow my wife", it's that they had a definite type. And that's using people "beneath" them in social status seem to really be what they get into

Liberty is technically a "non-profit"   There are IRS rules about using a non-profit's funds to enrich insiders and board members.  Jerry has been violating those rules like they were a naked Becky Falwell in the Liberty Football team's locker room.  If he was smart, he "spread the wealth" just enough that if the remaining board members blow the whistle on him, they are all going down with him.   If he got greedy and kept the grift for himself and cooked the books?   Yeah they'll rat on him and he's going to jail

Yeah that was spin coming from JR himself.   he even gave a quote "free at last " when he was "resigned"

but the truth is this:

Jerry Sr. left Jr. in charge of the college, but he left the pastorship of his home Church, the Thomas road Baptist Church to Jr.'s brother Jonathan.  That was meant as a clear signal that Johnathan, not JR. was his spiritual successor and the one who would be the next generation voice of the evangelical political movement.

Jr. however, quickly used the economic engine that was the University to gain financial control over the church, and once he did he effectively silenced Johnathan and took that mantle for himself.

To Claim he never wanted something he worked so hard and ruthlessly to get is nonsense.

to the extent I feel ANY sympathy for Jr., I will say it must have been hard growing up gay when you were the son of one of the most rabid homophobes on the planet

Poor Jerry, while this investigation winds its way in and out of the intricacies of the affair, he will be forced to sit on the outside and watch.
 
2020-09-03 10:38:51 AM  
Investigation into what exactly? The majesty of the mountains of sin Falwell Jr. has built for himself to struggle to overcome is the proof that he's the very best kind of Christian. Every sin that Falwell Jr. has engaged in was immediately followed by his complete subjugation and repentance to Jesus. Until the next temptation of the devil that laid bare his all too human moral frailty which he mightily repents afterward. Only the best Christians could repeatedly face and overcome such a daily onslaught from the Liberal Devil who as we know only tempts the most righteous and holy of Christians.

I voted this funny because Pocket Ninja normally is a fountain of fantastic wit... so I am assuming there is a great zinger in here that's going over my head.

I'm also voting it smart because Pocket Ninja is right.
