Liberty tells staff to refrain from interacting with Falwell
Staff members at Liberty University have been instructed to refrain from interacting with the school‚Äôs ousted president, Jerry Falwell Jr.
The university‚Äôs general counsel, David Corry, wrote in an email to staff Thursday that Falwell had made ‚Äúuncomfortable‚ÄĚ calls to some employees after resigning last week, The News & Advance reported Friday. Corry told employees they cannot give Falwell information about the school or do any favors for him while on the job because the interactions could create the perception that he is helping manage the school....
There is another aspect. Though it was unwise for the trustees of Liberty University to appoint the son of the founder, Jerry Falwell Snr., without closing examining his life and how he applied his professed faith, Jerry Falwell Jnr. did do 1 thing right. Subject to some suitable precautions, he did not get caught up with the COVID 19 fear hype, and kept the university open, and most of the others closed down, and will be still be closed the next academic year. Only 1 student, who lived externally, contracted COVID 19, and nobody on campus. Here in Britain, many students have paid up front for accommodation in their university cities, non refundable, only to be told that everything is going to be on line, and even that there will be no facilities open at all on campus!! That is absolutely disgraceful, and is part of Project Fear, to get everyone ready for the compulsory Bull Gates vaccine, with aborted foetus tissues, DNA changing agent and maybe, an id marker chip. Those universities that are open have insisted on draconian regulations and strict provisions that will make students and staff as well absolutely miserable. This is disgraceful!! I am so glad I am not a university student now, nothing like my time as a Christian student in the 70‚Äôs.
This whole affair has been really tragic. Generally, it is not a good idea for a Christian church, university, school or institution to pass from father to son, or to other family members. There always needs to be a plural eldership in the case of churches, and a board of trustees for other institutions. Christian institutions other than churches should also have some kind of external Board of Reference, made up of godly and proven men of solid worth, who have their own churches and ministries. Two problems of the old medieval Roman Catholic Church that contributed to the Protestant Reformation was simony, (selling of offices), and nepotism (giving offices to illegitimate children, nephews and other relatives of leading churchmen). Never a good idea or godly practice!!
