Pro-Life Head of Liberty University Reopens School Against Sound Advice: Nearly a Dozen Students Now Sick with COVID Symptoms

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.
