A stunning development happened with the ongoing Liberty University scandal. Despite a $40 million dollar lawsuit against him for damages Jerry Falwell Jr showed up at a social event with individuals affiliated with Liberty and then invited them to a “real party” on May 8 at the Falwell house. Jerry Falwell Jr appeared intoxicated and may have driven there under the influence of alcohol and violated Virginia Commonwealth law. And to all this Jerry Prevo still remains silent.
“By midnight the hilarity had increased. A celebrated tenor had sung in Italian, and a notorious contralto had sung in jazz … A pair of stage twins, who turned out to be the girls in yellow, did a baby act in costume, and champagne was served in glasses bigger than finger-bowls.“
F Scott Fitzgerald in “The Great Gatsby”
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Hebrews 11:6 NIV
Jerry Falwell Jr partying away in Miami Beach
Will the Falwell party on May 8, 2021 be similar to the pool party in Caddyshack? Is this what it means to develop a “Champion for Christ!”
Yesterday morning I saw something that shocked me. It was a Tweet by the Save 71 organization talking about how Jerry Falwell Jr showed up at a social function and invited Liberty students to a “real party” on May 8, 2021 at his home. Jerry Falwell Jr also looked like he was under the influence of alcohol when he showed up and allegedly slurred some of his words. He did not get any alcohol from the event and instead showed up that way. That also begs the question, if Jerry Falwell Jr was inebriated did he drive under the influence in Virginia? Drunk driving is a serious offense. The event was a comedy show and had a number of adults in attendance. Later a video popped up and you can see Jerry Falwell Jr talking. You can see all this in the Tweets by Save 71 and a few others below.

Is Becki Falwell Looking for a New Sex Partner? Is That Why Jerry Falwell Jr Showed Up?
This entire situation took my breath away and is deeply creepy. And to think that Falwell showed up while a $40 million dollar lawsuit is against him is stunning. Let’s remember that for a long time Jerry and Becki Falwell had a long relationship with a pool boy from Miami, Giancarlo Granda. What they would do is provide Giancarlo alcohol and Jerry would sit in the corner of the room intoxicated and watch Giancarlo have sex with Becki. This was a regular occurrence and happened for years from March of 2012 until 2018. For Granada’s services the Falwell’s gave him money, and recommendations. This entire scandal was broken by Reuters and it happened in late 2020 just as the Republican National Convention was starting. On Twitter Jerry Falwell Jr’s scandal competed against the Republican National Convention, that is how big this story became. You can read the original Reuters story in, “Business partner of Falwells says affair with evangelical power couple spanned seven years. This blog did some analysis of the story which you can read about in, “Is This The Liberty Way? How a Pool Boy Had a Sexual Relationship With Becki Falwell While Jerry Falwell Jr Watched.” Later on it was reported by Politico that Becki Falwell allegedly forced herself on a Liberty student and performed oral sex. There appears to be information that suggests that she did this for a while and took advantage of her position at Liberty University. You can read that Politico storey in, “‘She was the aggressor’: Former Liberty student alleges sexual encounter with Becki Falwell.“Again this blog also wrote about Becki Falwell which you can read about it, “Did Becki Falwell Prey on Liberty University Students For Sexual Purposes? A Troubling Story of Forced Oral Sex in Politico Raises the Question.”
So this really begs the question, why did Jerry Falwell Jr show up? Is he an alcoholic who does these embarrassing behaviors under the influence that maybe does not remember them afterward? Some of you who have had relatives or know of an alcoholics are aware that sometimes they do things under the influence that they can’t remember when they are sober. I saw this in college personally. Or is another reason the following. Did Becki Falwell as a predator send Jerry Falwell Jr on an errand to crash the social function and put out the invitation for the party at the Falwell house and ranch? Is Becky Falwell still planning on taking advantage of college students who are quite naïve about the Falwells. How many at Liberty look at Becki and Jerry Falwell Jr almost like that aunt and uncle in the family? And against all this Jerry Prevo stands silent and doesn’t say a word. That is putting more people at risk. We’ll have to see how this develops and what happens between now and the planned party on May 8, 2021.
