Jerry Falwell Jr. Says Christians Shouldn’t Choose the President Based on ‘Personal Behavior’ Because Everyone Is a Sinner

“I don’t think you can choose a president based on their personal behavior,” Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. said of President Trump in an interview with the Washington Post on Tuesday.

In the interview, the Christian university president was asked if he felt that it was “hypocritical for evangelical leaders to support” a political leader who has done things like lie, commit adultery and condone violence.

Simply put, Falwell said no. He told the interviewer, Joe Heim, “When Jesus said we’re all sinners, he really meant all of us, everybody. I don’t think you can choose a president based on their personal behavior because even if you choose the one that you think is the most decent — let’s say you decide Mitt Romney. Nobody could be a more decent human being, better family man. But there might be things that he’s done that we just don’t know about.”

He continued, “So you don’t choose a president based on how good they are; you choose a president based on what their policies are. That’s why I don’t think it’s hypocritical.”
