It’s a happy day for everyone who hates Christian hypocrites as Jerry Falwell Jr. has taken an indefinite leave of absence as requested by the Liberty University Board of Trustees following a scandal in which he had his pants unbuttoned with a woman who is not his wife.
Falwell posted and then deleted a photo earlier this week of himself with his belly exposed and his pants unbuttoned next to another woman doing the same. But the photo went viral anyway and he bizarrely tried to explain it away by claiming that he was just joking with the woman because she is allegedly pregnant and could not button her shorts. Coincidently, his own pants were supposedly too tight for him as well.

Falwell, as we all know, is a supporter of President Donald Trump and a prominent evangelical. As such, it appeared unlikely that he would suffer any real consequences for his un-Christian behavior.
But the board of Liberty University could not look the other way this time, which is why they suggested Falwell take an indefinite leave of absence.
Statement from Liberty Univ.: “The Executive Committee of Liberty University’s Board of Trustees, acting on behalf of the full Board, met today and requested that Jerry Falwell, Jr. take an indefinite leave of absence from his roles as President and Chancellor.”

Falwell is a disgrace to Christianity and he should resign outright. But it’s likely he’ll return after a lengthy vacation.
However, that didn’t stop Twitter users from mocking him.
Thoughts and prayers.

Somehow Jerry Falwell Jr and Donald Trump Jr found a way to become even more worthless than their POS fathers. Kudos, boys!

Walking, talking disaster Jerry Falwell, Jr. has been asked to take indefinite leave from Liberty University.
Really bizarre how all these Cult of the Shining City, prosperity gospel, white-identity evangelical folks end up being grifters and embarrassing hypocrites, yeah?

Looks like Falwell will have plenty of time to get reacquainted with his pool boy.
