  1. The irony of a university named “Liberty” and instructing their students and faculty to not speak with the press.

      @Paper Sphere Absolutely – let’s just hope it’s all cult members who prove Darwin correct…

      I don’t actually wish death or suffering on anyone.
      Sadly this crisis could turn very Darwinian.
      Maybe knowing to self isolate, wash your hands and social distance will give the educated an advantage?
      We shall all soon see…

      @Jim Fix what was misrepresented in this story?

      @Jim Fix which lies did they tell?

      That “university “ isn’t worth attending.
      They failed a basic IQ problem by ordering people back in a pandemic.
      They failed a basic morality issue by ordering people to keep silent.
      It’s BANKRUPT as an institution, if not financially then in every other way.
      Vote with your feet, people!

  2. He should get a manslaughter charge for every person who dies of the virus who went to that gathering.

      @edward griswold
      Other than students picking such a crappy university in the first place, I agree with you. Consider them the test case of what it would be like if we put everybody back to work and in school too soon. Conspiracy theory in the making: Maybe they were a test case and that is why 45* took the advice of the CDC doctors to extend guidelines through April. (No, that does not seem right, because that means they stopped using red, yellow, black and brown people for their insidious test cases and started using WASPs. A new thought comes to mind: like pure Aryans, they have been inbreeding too much and are not smart enough to realize that. If there really is anything to this then it is most likely a rich and powerful [Falwell] versus poor and enfeebled [students and staff] scenario leading back to an agreement that it is not the fault of the students.)

      Eric Rojo this does not fit the definition of first degree murder. Reckless endangerment would be a more likely charge but still difficult to prove.

      You already know this is fake news. Get over your anger about the man endorsing the President. Every campus is taking care of their international student. Call the one near you. Oh. You can’t or don’t want to handle the truth. Your making yourself sick with hate.

    • And he should pay for every cent it takes for everyone who gets sick.

    • @Peace Keeper
      I agree. This coverage is completely deceiving. The students staying are the ones that can’t go home, a lot of them are from very affected countries, like Italy or China. They are safer on campus. All the other students are at home and take online classes.

    This madman only cares about his congregations “contributions, fees, and tuition”. He is only about the money, doesn’t care about people.

  4. I am really tired of living in a country with so many stupid people. It’s exhausting.

  5. Marilyn Clarke | March 31, 2020 at 9:42 PM | Reply

    All evangelicals are anti CHRIST, yes I said it.

    • Marilyn Clarke they are scary, full of hate and very political. It’s hard to recognise them as Christians anymore?

  6. Jerry Falwell’s Jim Jones, let’s drink the COOLAID. Sounds like a cult like jim Jones and jones town Guyana

    He should be arrested and given a severe sentencing as a result of his negligence. He should also have to pay for the medical bills of all the students that got sick.

    • Cynthia Stevens | April 4, 2020 at 2:11 PM | Reply

      And he should be sued

    • Cyprian Peters | April 6, 2020 at 2:25 PM | Reply

      Yes I support you fully he should be arrested and given a long jail term.He’s very stupid showing he’s not worthy to listen to

    • life is short. stop wasting your time | April 6, 2020 at 4:55 PM | Reply

      he must be sued by the teachers and students

    • my-name-is nobody | April 7, 2020 at 1:27 AM | Reply

      effectively it could be construed as ‘forced’ suicide…

    • He really hasn’t done anything wrong: the students staying on campus are international students who cannot go back home safely. All other students have been studying from home, just like for other universities. Also, pointing out that 19 of them got the virus is deceptive: all universities have had some infected students, it doesn’t mean that it is the uni president’s fault.

      Anyways I really don’t like the guy but I think MSNBC is being shady about this.

  8. Someone should really tell Jerry that his religion has a prohibition against worshiping false gods.

  9. “All spring breakers, cruise ship vacationers and all around stupid people are welcomed at Liberty University!” Signed Falwell son, the stupid one.

  10. Cathy Warner | April 1, 2020 at 12:12 AM | Reply

    ARREST HIM FOR THREATENING LIVES ….. They arrested a pastor for having church services

  11. Can you blame us for seeing no difference between “evangelistic” and “stupid”!

    • Sandra Angel | April 2, 2020 at 7:19 AM | Reply

      Leong Phil no no (I was raised one) but geez this is stupidity to the max

    • Tyree Wagner | April 3, 2020 at 5:38 PM | Reply

      No I can’t blame you. These people Love money not Their religion.

    • CHRISTIANS LIKE ALL DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS ,RACES, GROUPS HAVE SOME THAT ARE BAD EGGS SO TO SPEAK BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN ALL ARE BAD .. BUT IN THIS CASE TO PUT ALL THE STUDENT AT RISK AND THEN EVERYONE THEY ARE AROUND PARENTS GRANDPARENTS WAS A STUPID IDEA .. IT IS LIKE THEY WORSHIP TRUMP INSTEAD OF GOD AND THEY DON’T SEE THE TRUTH OR BY THE TIME THEY SEE IT TOO EMBARRASSED TO ADMIT IT OR SAY HEY MAYBE WE ARE WRONG ABOUT THIS PRESIDENT HIS LIES HE TELLS WIDE OPEN ON CAMERA RECORDED AND THEY STILL ARE BLIND … I AM A CHRISTIAN AND I SEE I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY CAN NOT … MAYBE MONEY BLINDS THEM POLITICS MAYBE ..

    • Peace Keeper | April 6, 2020 at 4:30 PM | Reply

      @Karma Rain You seem like an honest person. Do some research and you’ll see that this is fake news. Students went online after Spring break.

    • …or Joe Biden and any other democrat.

    When a man of god bows to a racist he is disqualified to lead! The students who attend liberty are screwed because Falwell listens to the most incompetent , racist , failed business man, wife cheating, 2X divorced, lying, narcissistic, self aggrandizing, grifter, pay to play guy in the White House!

  13. Falwell belongs in Prison. Sadly, his crook father died before he could be charged criminally.

    I can’t wait until all the Evangelical filth gets wiped out by this Biblical-type plague. How ironic and fitting.

  15. Hey Jerry, amazing what religious leaders will do for a buck. Kids life’s over dollars. Need a grassy knoll!

  16. “Christian “ by any other name would be considered “ corrupt “, like POTUS…

    • Trump and evangelicals are demons. No sign of christianity is seen in them. If they were they will know the word of God speaks about staying indoors until the wrath is past.

    • @Freddie Stranger – FALSE RELIGION is more like it. Religion for profit, what a concept! Fraudsters, hucksters and Huckabees and Falwells. They’re all CROOKS and they steal money is the NAME OF JESUS!! 🐂💩👎👎🖕🖕👹👹

    • @Freddie Stranger – Absolutely, now get all your friends and family and pack those churches at Easter. Prove main stream media and science wrong. Don’t forget those big hugs and kisses too!

    • Freddie Stranger 👈🏼 in love with ❄️ Jerry

    • ALL CHRISTIANS AS IN ALL RACES AND ALL GROUPS OF PEOPLE YOU WILL HAVE BAD APPLES BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN THE WHOLE TREE IS BAD .. DO NOT JUDGE ALL BY SOME …

    When will evangelical flock realize that their sect has one goal in mind: get rich quickly!

  18. Michael Dodds | April 1, 2020 at 5:26 AM | Reply

    Why anyone would even want to go to an evangelical “university” in the first place is baffling

  19. Just imagine the outrage on Fox if Falwell were an imam insisting that his mosque stay open and issuing daily calls to prayer.

  20. “Of all the Tyrannies that Affects Mankind, Tyranny in Religion is the Worst.” Thomas Paine. “The Age of Reason.”
