Parent Questions Falwell’s Decision to Keep Liberty University Open. Falwell Calls Him a “dummy”

U.S. Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump shakes hands with Jerry Falwell Jr. during a campaign event in Sioux City Iowa

As we have noted at this blog, Jerry Falwell Jr. had decided to keep Liberty University open during the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier today on Twitter, a parent of three Liberty University students questioned Falwell’s decision.

Falwell Jr. blocked me on Twitter a long time ago. Here is the rest of the exchange, compliments of Washington Post reporter Sarah Pulliam Bailey’s feed:

And then this:


Brittain has changed his Twitter bio to “Husband, dad to three awesome sons, insurance exec, firearms dealer and now, “dummy.” Just ask @jerryfalwelljr.”

I don’t know of any presidents of secular colleges who would treat a parent in this way.  Falwell Jr. is the president of a Christian college.

Again, not all Christian colleges are the same.
