Jerry Falwell Jr. is not exactly known for capitulating to LGBT and social justice activists.
However, this may be the most upset they have ever been with him.
Jerry Falwell said something about his granddaughter’s gender that is enraging LGBT activists.
Falwell has been very open where he stands on gender issues.
As President of Liberty University, the largest Christian college in America, he’s never been afraid to make statements defending his values or Christian faith.
Even in the face of backlash from the mainstream media and student protestors.
This time, Jerry Falwell had the nerve to say that he is raising their granddaughter as a girl.
And all hell broke loose when protests by radical LGBT students erupted.
The Christian Broadcasting Network reports:
Some pro-LGBT Liberty University students protested on campus recently after the university’s president and his wife said their granddaughter will be raised according to her God-given gender.
The News & Advance reports Jerry Falwell, Jr. and his wife Becki, were speaking at a satellite CPAC event alongside Donald Trump, Jr. when the couple said they would raise their granddaughter as a female.
“She’s our granddaughter, and we’re raising her as a girl,” Mrs. Falwell said. “We’re not letting her have a choice. God makes the choice of what the babies are going to be and God decided she would be a girl.”
The Falwells went on to explain that their granddaughter always carries a baby doll with her, while their own sons grew up around firearms.
About 30 Liberty University students responded to the Falwells’ remarks by waving gay pride flags and carrying signs supporting transgender rights on the steps of the campus’ student union.
Once LGBT students caught wind of Falwell’s statement, they began protesting outside of the student union.
The students expressed that they believe everyone has a “choice” when it comes to their gender.
Falwell made it clear that he believes God has already made that choice and he will abide by it.
Christian leaders have experienced a new wave of attacks from LGBT leaders for refusing to buy into the transgender hysteria.
While there may be backlash by the mainstream culture, many Christians are grateful for individuals such as Falwell who aren’t afraid to stand up for their values.
