White Evangelicals Like Mike Pence and Jerry Falwell Jr. Betray the Gospel of Jesus Christ

The last time Vice President Mike Pence spoke at Liberty University, he used the backdrop of one of the world’s largest Christian schools to vouch for candidate Donald Trump’s faith credentials during the 2016 campaign.

When Pence returned to the school Saturday to deliver the commencement address, his remarks were more personal.

Pence, who has been facing criticisms of his own religious views recently, warned graduates that they have to stay strong against the challenges they’ll get from Hollywood, the media and the secular left.

‘Throughout most of American history, it’s been pretty easy to call yourself Christian,’ Pence said. ‘It didn’t even occur to people that you might be shunned or ridiculed for defending the teachings of the Bible. But things are different now.’

USA Today

Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University, was the first prominent evangelical to endorse the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump.

Ever since Trump and his lackeys have maintained a close relationship with Falwell and his university, so it wasn’t surprising that Vice President Mike Pence made a pilgrimage to the Mecca of White Evangelicalism to deliver the commencement address.

Pence warned the graduating class that they might be ridiculed for defending the teachings of the Bible. Jerry Falwell Jr. and his acolytes have been mocked and castigated by Hollywood, the media, the secular left and true Christians not for defending the teachings of the Bible, but for making a mockery of the teachings of Jesus Christ by supporting and enabling a morally degenerate president.

Pence, who was dubbed, a cheerleader for a porn president, by Mayor Pete is the last person on Earth who should be dispensing spiritual advice to graduates.

WWJD if He was the commencement speaker at Liberty University? He would rail against the university in the same way that he railed against the Pharisees. He would condemn them for turning their backs against poor folks, immigrants, prisoners and other social outcasts. He would condemn them for embracing the spirit of anti-Christ in the person of Donald Trump.

I beseech my readers to be like Jesus and condemn the anti-Christian spirit of Trump, Pence and other reprobated white evangelicals.

Liberty University Grads Protest Jerry Falwell Jr.’s Sickening Support of Donald Trump

In the wake of President Donald Trump`s stunning Charlottesville remarks in which he embraced White Nationalists every section of our society has repudiated his blatant racism.

President Trump`s Entire Arts and Humanities Council quit.

Trump disbanded his Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum after a rash of defections by business leaders.

The following prominent Republican leaders have denounced Trump by name: Sen. John McCain, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Jeff Flake, Rep. Ed Royce, Rep. Leonard Lance, Former President Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney …

Military Joint Chiefs denounced Charlottesville racism.

Artists, business leaders, the military brass, and Republican leaders have criticized Trump`s bigotry in no uncertain terms.

Only evangelical leaders, who you`d think would be the first ones to condemn hatred, have remained silent.

Only one religious leader has stepped down from Donald Trump`s evangelical advisory board. Megachurch pastor A.R Bernard announced on Twitter Friday that “it became obvious that there was a deepening conflict in values between myself and the administration.”

In January 2016, Jerry Falwell Jr. became one of the earliest evangelical leaders to endorse the degenerate billionaire candidate, and he has remained steadfast in support of Trump through every scandal, every intemperate tweet and every contentious press conference.

After Trump`s outrageous, controversial and racist remarks about the Charlottesville White Nationalists` protest this is what Falwell tweeted:

Finally a leader in WH. Jobs returning, N Korea backing down, bold truthful stmt about #charlottesville tragedy. So proud of @realdonaldtrump

We expect our religious leaders to condemn racism and other moral diseases, and to urge their followers and indeed the entire nation to form a more perfect union.

Jerry Falwell Jr. may be a moral coward, but I take heart in the fact that a group of Liberty University (LU) alumni has condemned him for his continued alignment with Trump. Some LU graduates have vowed to return their diplomas to register their disapproval.

I urge my evangelical friends to join the rest of society in condemning hate speech, racism and bigotry.

A Lynchburg Resident’s Take on Donald Trump’s Commencement Address at Liberty University

President Donald Trump delivered the commencement address at Liberty University which is located about three miles from my home. I wouldn`t drive three yards to hear Trump speak, but I did watch the spectacle on TV.

Before his big speech Trump was presented with an honorary degree from Liberty University, which carries as much weight as a degree from Trump University.

The president opened his first commencement speech at the evangelical university on Saturday by talking about the size of penis.

Just kidding, Trump managed to refrain from making any vulgar comments lest he offend the sensibilities of the conservative Christian school. Funny how evangelicals aren`t offended by Trump`s health plan that renders health care unaffordable for the elderly and the poor, and his economic policies that punish the poor and give tax breaks to the filthy rich, but they pitch a fit when comedians use obscenities to describe Trump. But I digress …

Trump did start his speech by bragging about the size of the crowd:

“I`m thrilled to be back at Liberty University. I`ve been here, this is now my third time, and we love setting records, right? We always set records. We have to set records, we have no choice.”

He again referred to the size of the crowd later in his speech, saying: “This is a beautiful stadium, and it`s packed. I`m so happy about that.”

Trump`s speech was unremarkable: Some platitudes, a few Trumpisms, and a compliment or two for Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. as a reward for his early endorsement.

I could have delivered a speech of equal style and substance – when I was in elementary school. Damn Falwell for shaming Lynchburg, and damn Trump for shaming our country.
