Jerry Falwell

  1. This is the third, and final blog that I am moving from one of my 5 blog categories to another.

    As I read about President Trump giving the commencement speech at Liberty University here in 2017, and about the interview later regarding him, the university, and Jerry Falwell. It reminds me of the commencement speaker when I graduated (Magna Cum Laude) from Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College in San Dimas, Ca. in 1979. We had a class body of about 500 students. Winning the 2nd year class speech contest the previous year, I had the privilege of repeating that speech (having to do with Elijah resting after the Mt. Carmel experience) for these students the year before. (That college no longer exists, but was an off-shoot of Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Mo.) Our commencement speaker was non other than Jerry Falwell himself. I have never been a big fan of his, nor disliked him either, but because he is presently in the news I thought I would mention him here.

    Your commencement in 1979 undoubtedly featured Jerry Falwell Sr.

    He died in May 2007, leaving one of his sons (Jerry Falwell Jr.) as head of Liberty University. Jerry Jr. hosted President Trump at the 2017 commencement, and supported him during his presidential campaign.

    You may already know this, but I wanted to clarify for everyone else. :)
