Did Falwell’s Endorsement Mean Anything?

Here is just one of dozens of articles you can find in this week’s edition of Ministry Briefing.

Who said you can’t mix religion and politics? Well that is what seems to have happened with Jerry Falwell Jr.’s recent endorsement of Donald Trump for president. Falwell, the son of the Sr. televangelist and president of Liberty University, announced that he would be backing Trump. According to the article:

…Falwell called Trump ‘a successful executive and entrepreneur, a wonderful father and a man who I believe can lead our country to greatness again.’  Falwell’s move has long been expected since he has showered praise on the billionaire in recent weeks and developed a rapport with him. But the timing of the formal announcement is significant, coming as Trump and Ted Cruz compete intensely in Iowa for the support of social conservatives.

Here are our thoughts:

  • Is this really necessary? Warren and Rubio?
  • “The late Dr. Jerry Falwell Sr. would be rolling over in his grave if he knew the son who bore his name had endorsed the most immoral and ungodly man to ever run for President of the United States.” — John Stemberger, President of the Florida Family Policy Council
  • Penny Nance CEO of Concerned Women for America: “strongly” disagrees
  • Duck Dynasty: Willie (for Trump); Phil (for Cruz). Phil picked the ‘most godly’; Willie chose the best leader. Is this generational?
