A former Liberty University faculty member weighs-in on her former school in the post-Falwell Jr. era

Last week we posted on Bob Moser’s Rolling Stone piece on Liberty University. Read that post here.

Mary Beth Baggett was one of the former Liberty University professors Moser interviewed for the piece. This year she joined the faculty of Houston Baptist University. (Some of you may remember Baggett’s Religion News Service piece on Jerry Falwell Jr.’s handling of the COVID-19 outbreak).

Baggett recently wrote a revealing Twitter thread in response to Moser’s article:

As Baggett notes, if Liberty University is serious about reforms the administration will close the Falkirk Center. I made that case here. I doubt that will happen since interim president Jerry Prevo is a Falwell family loyalist.
