Jerry Falwell, Jr. reportedly resigned from Liberty University, the conservative Christian college his father founded almost 50 years ago, but now the embattled conservative leader says he is not leaving – and many are slamming him over his hypocrisy.
“I have not resigned, I will be on indefinite leave,” Falwell told Politico, after Liberty University had confirmed his resignation.
Reuters reported Monday that Falwell and his wife had an intimate relationship with their “pool boy,” a man who says they began to engage with him when he was just 20, nine years ago.
“Becki and I developed an intimate relationship and Jerry enjoyed watching from the corner of the room,” Giancarlo Granda says.
The internet has responded with mockery and disgust – with a good dose of ridicule – after he announced he was not stepping down. Falwell, Jr. built his career, like is father before him, claiming to be a moral leader despite denigrating minorities and those who did not follow his supposed biblical beliefs.

Let’s not lose sight of the fact that Jerry Falwell blamed everything on his wife before we all found out he was for years watching her and the pool boy from the corner. That’s who he is.

Why is Falwell humiliating himself like this? Instead of resigning, he allows his board to choose another man while he stands by and watches.

Mr. Falwell will no longer run the university himself, but will remain on staff to observe another person doing it. https://t.co/Z6bnz3LZa3

Jerry Falwell Jr. is maybe the only person it’s ok to kink shame but not because he likes to watch his wife fuck the pool boy, because he is the worst kind of hypocrite.

All you suckers who followed @JerryFalwellJr
Just like your parents were suckered by all those other tele-evangelists in 80s & 90s.

Look, let’s compromise. Liberty’s board appoints another president, but Falwell gets a chair in the corner of the office & can watch the new guy do the job. https://t.co/F9rvkRbpcu

As we all lament the downfall of @JerryFalwellJr, please look back at this Twitter fight he had with me over guns and his desire to shoot muslims. If not for his threesome, we would all be hearing from him tonight. He would be another creep screaming about guns and the 2A. https://t.co/OYYDnWa6O5

Does anyone else realize that the Trump campaign likely used the dirt on Jerry Falwell to force him into endorsing Trump, instead of Cruz, in order to bring the evangelical whackos into the MAGA fold?
