|Jerry Falwell Jr., 25 May 2009, from the Brainyquote website|
Despite pleas from some of his own employees, from the governor of Virginia, from medical authorities, from people who live around Liberty University, pro-life Christian leader Jerry Falwell Jr. reopened Liberty University last week following spring break. And now this:
As of Friday, Dr. [Thomas W.] Eppes [director of Liberty University health services] said, nearly a dozen Liberty students were sick with symptoms that suggested Covid-19, the disease caused by the virus. Three were referred to local hospital centers for testing. Another eight were told to self-isolate.
Gosh, who could have seen this coming?
When all this is over and done with, if any of us live through it, there needs to be a big reckoning for pro-life Christians in the US and a careful critical examination of what they have accomplished in American culture and political life.
This is a footnote to what I posted earlier today.
