Jerry Falwell, Jr. believes President Trump is a "good moral person" and an example to the nation.

Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. believes President Donald Trump is a “good moral person”, and he has believed this for the last six years that the two have been friends, he told The Guardian.

Jerry Falwell, who is credited along with other evangelical leaders with delivering a huge Christian vote for Trump in 2016, said he had “no doubts, no hesitations” about supporting the president. “He is like Ronald Reagan on steroids.”

Falwell is the president of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, a Christian establishment with more than 100,000 students on campus and enrolled in online courses. His close association with and vocal support for Trump has embedded Liberty’s reputation and influence as one of the most conservative educational institutions in the country. Falwell has invited Trump to speak at Liberty three times in the past six years, and was the first evangelical leader to endorse his presidential candidacy.

Falwell, who said he has known Trump personally since 2012 and talked to him “all the time”, told the outlet that he and trump “think alike”:

“I usually tweet something similar to what he tweets a day or two before him. We think alike.”

Asked if the president was a good moral example, Falwell said: “Absolutely. Ever since I’ve known him, he’s been a good, moral person, a strong leader, a tough leader – and that’s what this country needs.”

Whether Trump was a good Christian was a matter between him and God. “Evangelicals believe every human being is a sinner. We’re all imperfect, we’re all flawed, and we’re redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ.”

"Redeemed"?? Bovine Droppings! Falwell and 45 pervert the word. Their only love is money and power and their perverse need for both. "Every human being is a sinner?" They wallow in it. The lie is definitely in them.

Every true Christian knows, "Ye shall know them by their fruits." This is not even about the elect being decieved, but rather the religious-right endorsing a man whose fruit has been displayed in the public eye for more than 20 years.

So "moral" means hating brown people, treating the poor and women like dirt, and wishing LGBT people would just die now? Man, things sure have changed.

Well, compared to the Falwells, even pimps and pedophiles are moral.

Wow, just wow. If, for a moment, I began to think like Trump, if he and I began to "think alike" I'd seek mental health counseling and nothing short of a lobotomy.

Falwell is low-life garbage. It just fits that he admires someone like Trump.

That orange barf bag is as moral as a hairball, and that’s an insult to the hairball.

Well we can all see how far American Christianity has fallen. When Jerry Falwell tells us that Donald Trump is moral and yet we all know and see that he is a documented liar and serial adulterer we know that Christianity today reveals little about Jesus and the Gospels.
