    Amazing that despite everyone being “terrified”,
    “Several Dozens” of people cannot keep a secret.

    I call bullshit on a former student with a personal axe to grind.

    Need that Ron Burgundy gif “I don’t believe you.”

    (Edit) now that I’m being down voted to death, I point out this Article is the writers opinion.
    He’s reporting on his “secret contacts”.
    Not official sources; purely innuendo & gossip. Everything he presents is hearsay or speculative coincidence at best.

    Combined that with a publication with a history of reputation smearing and hatchet jobs against anybody with a conservative bent, I just don’t believe it.

    I am shocked. Shocked! Well, not that shocked.

    You are saying that the largest issuer of federally insured student debt is playing fast and lose with the truth and federal dollars??? That the school that just put one term congressman Robert Hurt as the head of the government department would not hire the best and the brightest? That a rapid Trump supporter is somehow tainted themselves???

    A long but good read. Shameful stuff. I live in Lynchburg and have heard some stuff like years ago when Liberty opened their doors to the community after a bad storm here that left many without power. Later that week to save money Liberty turned off power and AC for their employees in the building since they ran more power and resources on this community outreach.

    Regardless of presenting yourself as a Christian… that’s just shitty

    Most universities are poorly run. The more solvent they are, the better they are at minimizing the impacts of poor management. Poor management happens because it’s blasphemous to run an institution of higher learning with a business minded approach.

    Liberty’s antics are Falwellian, for sure, but few institutions are really clean.

    I’ve had some personal interactions with Jerry Jr. and Trey, about ten years ago. Trey had his own house on King’s Mt., the place was full of booze. I’ve never met a more hypocritical pair of charlatans. This article isn’t saying anything new, it’s just casting a bigger light on the issue, and good on them for doing so. The Fallwells can suck balls.

  • crosswatt says:

    The problem to me is that preaching the gospel shouldn’t be a “family business”. And the Franklin Graham’s and Jerry Falwell Jr’s and Gordon Robertson’s of the world are trying desperately to hold onto the kingdoms their fathers built. But when you lack you father’s sincerity (Graham), political acumen (Falwell), or business savvy (Robertson), you simply cannot fill the shoes properly.

    As a Christian, it embarrasses and saddens me to know that these men are doing more to discredit the Bible and it’s believers than a thousand atheists and/or pagans could ever do.
