GOP Lawmaker Tells Jerry Falwell Jr. To Resign Over 'Appalling' Behavior - 2020-08-07
Liberty University head Jerry Falwell Jr., one of the nation's leading evangelical Christian voices, is facing pressure to step down after he shared ― and then quickly deleted ― an open-pants photo on social media.
Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.), a member of the university's advisory board, said Falwell needs to resign:
The photo shared by Falwell showed him with his pants open, his arms around a woman with her shorts open and a glass of what he called "black water" in his hands. The images were taken at a party on a yacht themed to the "Trailer Park Boys" TV show, which is known for its off-color humor centered around sex, drugs, alcohol and foul language. Many people enjoy the show, but given those themes, Liberty University students would likely be disciplined for watching it, according to the school's honor code.
