St. Louis, MO—
What kind of God would allow Jerry Falwell Jr. to inherit his father’s unparalleled Christian empire and forever tarnish it with hilarious, shocking-but-perhaps-unsurprising hypocrisy?
What kind of God would allow an impulsive, sexually undomesticated man to preach abstinence at the world’s biggest Christian university and criticize homosexuality publicly while forbidding any trace of sexuality from his university’s students, but “like” some of those students’ bikini photos on Instagram and get involved in polygamous, arguably pretty gay sexual liaisons with his wife?
What kind of God would allow Jerry Falwell Jr. to profess Biblical values of masculinity and then throw his wife under the bus blaming her for his current predicament?
What kind of God would allow Jerry Falwell Jr. to wax poetically about following Jesus’s message of righteous altruism, and then get unnecessarily rich selling Christianity to people in the form of university tuition and suspicious business deals that seem to be covering up lifestyle choices not endorsed by the Bible?
What kind of God would allow Jerry Falwell Jr. to promote himself as a poster boy of Christianity and Christian values and then endorse Donald Trump for president?
What kind of God would allow Jerry Falwell Jr. to call on sinners to accept their mistakes and sins and ask God for forgiveness, but then desperately hire Michael Cohen to act as his fixer?
What kind of God would allow Jerry Falwell Jr.’s existence?
What kind of Grand Master Plan includes letting a charlatan make a mockery of You, God? Everything okay? Is there a reason You’ve not rained down heavenly justice upon Jerry years or even decades ago? Why did we have to wait for the pool boy to bring Jerry down? Are You losing interest in omniscience?
Let us know if You need someone to talk to, God!
