Last week Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University, gave a speech encouraging students to carry guns and kill Muslims.
"I've always thought that if more good people had concealed-carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in and killed them," he said. The school is also offering students free classes to get their permits.
Liberty University is the largest Southern Baptist school in the nation, yet so far Southern Baptist leaders have been shamefully silent in response to Falwell's call to arms. Even Russell Moore, who heads the denomination's "religious liberty" efforts and has criticized Donald Trump, has said nothing about Falwell.
It's appalling that a so-called "Christian" university would promote violence and Islamophobia. Let's show church leaders it's time to speak out.
