The following article, Can American Lives Be Saved By Killing the U.S. Economy? (Opinion), was first published on Flag And Cross.
Virginia’s Liberty University remains a strong Christian college, despite nearly every other school in the country veering far-left.
In December 2019, Liberty dropped a bomb on liberal heads by announcing they are working with two prominent conservatives to open the Falkirk Center, which will combat attacks against Jesus Christ and the U.S. Constitution.
Here’s the deal, via Washington Examiner:
Growing concerns in conservative circles that liberals are trying to convert young Christians into socialists by distorting the Bible and U.S. Constitution have prompted Virginia’s Liberty University to form a new center to push back on the media, academics, and Democratic politicians.
Kirk noted, “The fastest-growing religion in America is atheism and secularism and with that is the rise of leftism and statism and, as people veer away from the church and veer away from the Judeo Christian values that built our country, people are more likely to embrace statism.”
Falwell explained, “As attacks on traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs grow in frequency and intensity, the need has never been greater for a national revival of our foundational principles throughout our society and institutions in America.”
The Falkirk Center is determined “To renew & defend God-given freedoms in America & restore Judeo-Christian based principles in our national policies, institutions, & culture.”
They have a big question to ask…
Can you really save American lives by destroying the American economy?
From Falkirk Center:
House Majority Whip James Clyburn said last week, “this was a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”
Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer and Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, looked for an opportunity to give more collective bargaining power to unions, expand wind and solar tax credits, and create new fuel emission standards that would all but promise to destroy the airline industry it was seeking to aid.
These provisions were not economic, but ideological. No different than the kind of provisions the Green New Deal was seeking to employ that would not only ensure the decline of the American economy but, more importantly, American freedom.

A message to @GovernorVA and Lynchburg government leaders:
Liberty students are part of the Lynchburg community! They work jobs, have apartments, make economic contributions and pay taxes. (1/5)
