I see lawsuits in Jerry Fallwell Jr.’s future.

At least one student who returned to Liberty University last week has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to the conservative, Christian school’s lead physician.
“Liberty will be notifying the community as deemed appropriate and required by law,” Liberty University’s president, Jerry Falwell Jr, told the New York Times.
Last week, Falwell invited the school’s 5,000 students to return to campus after officials confirmed the Lynchburg, Virginia-based institution would defy nationwide calls for mandatory school closures and reopen.
Now, any student returning to campus would be required to self-quarantine for 14 days.
Lead physician Thomas W Eppes Jr confirmed in the report that nearly a dozen Liberty students showed symptoms of Covid-19 since returning to campus.
According to Eppes, of three tested, one was positive, one negative and the results are pending for the third. Eight other students were told to self-isolate.
“We’ve lost the ability to corral this thing,” Eppes told Falwell before the school’s reopening.
We might be seeing the end of Liberty University folks.
I am not at all sure they can survive this kind of bad decison making.
You know I am beginning to think some of the religious leaders in this country are fucking morons.
