Jerry Falwell, Jr., who had to resign as president of Liberty University after revelations about the swinging sexual lifestyle of him and his wife Becki, turns out to have even more hypocrisies. Falwell’s father, the founder of the university, had instituted extremely harsh restrictions on the student body when it came to dress, behavior, and alcohol, with a strict no-use policy for the last item. His son vigorously implemented these policies when he took over as president. But it now appears that Falwell is an alcoholic.
When the elder Falwell founded Liberty University in 1971, he prohibited the use of alcohol by students — regardless of whether it was on or off campus, before or after they turned 21, the legal drinking age. Liberty’s anti-alcohol policy is so severe that students are subjected to random breath, blood and urine tests.
With such strict rules in place, it became a nightmare for school administrators, staff and donors when Falwell would allegedly show up on campus drunk. He claims that never happened but also noted that alcohol was not off-limits for faculty.
All this has come to light after a recent episode where he fell down drunk and injured himself, causing severe bleeding.
An intoxicated Jerry Falwell Jr. had fallen, lost “a lot of blood” and had cuts all over his face after injuring himself less than a week after he resigned as president of Liberty University, a newly released transcript of the 911 call revealed.
Falwell’s wife, Becki, made the call to Bedford County emergency responders on Aug. 30 around 2:30 a.m.
She told dispatchers she had been at church around 11 p.m. when she received a call from her husband, who said he was bleeding after falling down the stairs. When she got home, Becki Falwell said the door was locked so she used a chair to break through the back door.
Medical responders sent to the Falwell residence said they had observed lacerations on Jerry Falwell’s face, under his left eye, above both eyes and across the bridge of his nose. Falwell told responders he hit his head on a trash can. Blood and “empty alcohol containers” were found near the area Falwell had indicated.
It is no surprise why Falwell was one of the earliest and strongest supporters of Donald Trump because he must have recognized Trump as a truly kindred spirit. Both utter sanctimonious pieties while practicing the opposite. Both are surrounded by enablers who know that these two are utterly unsuitable for the positions they hold but because of fear or ambition, do not reveal the truth about the men they serve.
As a side note I have to say that, given Becki Falwell’s obvious desire for a swinging lifestyle, I am a little skeptical of her claim that she was at church at 11:00pm on a Saturday night when the call came. But I am an old guy, utterly out of touch with current slang. Maybe ‘going to church’ is what the kids call attending an orgy these days.
