    Falwell's insurance policies pay off Liberty University debt Associated Press Staff Reports OneNewsNow.com August 26, 2007 LYNCHBURG, Va. - Dr. Jerry Falwell had life insurance policies worth $34 million and the money has been used to erase the debt of Liberty University, the school he founded. The televangelist's son, Liberty Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr., says his father named the university and Lynchburg's Thomas Road Baptist Church as beneficiaries to protect their future. The policies left $29 million to Liberty and another $5 million to the 22,000-member Thomas Road congregation, which Falwell had led, according to the News & Advance of...

    The Rev. Jerry Falwell had life insurance policies worth $34 million and the money has been used to erase the debt of Liberty University, the school he founded. The televangelist's son, Liberty Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr., said his father had named the university and the Thomas Road Baptist Church as beneficiaries to protect their future. The policies left $29 million to Liberty; its debt had reached $82 million in 1992, but the school had succeeded in paying off a significant amount before the elder Falwell's death. Another $5 million went to the 22,000-member Thomas Road congregation, which Falwell had led,...

    On Monday, July 2, I attended what I can only pray may become a historic meeting. Several weeks ago, I received a call about attending a meeting at the Egyptian Embassy in Washington, D.C. I was told this meeting would be hosted by the ambassador from Egypt and might be attended by representatives of other Arab nations, as well as by 10-15 pastors, evangelists and Christian media representatives. My interest stirred, I agreed to attend the meeting even though I was not quite sure of its purpose. I asked Dr. Ron Godwin, Liberty University's executive vice president, to attend with...

    LYNCHBURG, Va. - Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Liberty University's graduating class Saturday to honor the spirit of school founder Jerry Falwell by confronting "the growing culture of radical secularism" with Christian ideals. Gingrich, who is considering a 2008 presidential run, quoted Bible passages to a crowd of about 17,000 packed into the university's football stadium four days after Falwell's death. Despite the somber tone of the day, graduates who covered the football field chanted "Jerry! Jerry!" in tribute to Falwell. "A growing culture of radical secularism declares that the nation cannot profess the truths on which it was...

    Even in death, the Rev. Jerry Falwell on Thursday was clutching a Bible, which had been his centerpiece for most of his adult life. And to the thousands who filed past his body in the grand lobby of Liberty University’s Arthur S. DeMoss Learning Center, remembrances were deeply personal. They remembered the man who loved to laugh, lived to minister, or simply scared the daylights out of you with his loud truck horn. Beyond his résumé - which includes being the founding father of LU, Thomas Road Baptist Church and the Moral Majority - Falwell’s legacy is built on little...

    The maverick senator seen as the Republicans' best hope for succeeding President George W Bush has taken a major step towards becoming his party's next leader by reaching out to the powerful Christian Right. John McCain swallowed his pride on Saturday when he spoke at Liberty University in Virginia, run by the ultra-conservative television evangelist Jerry Falwell, who he once said had an "evil influence" on the party. His attempt to win over Mr Falwell and other Christian leaders - whose millions of followers dominate the party's grass roots - was a deeply controversial choice as a way-station on the...

    NEW YORK -- U.S. Sen. John McCain is set to deliver commencement speeches at two New York universities next week -- and that's drawing fire from campus activists who oppose his conservative views and support for the Iraq war. The potential Republican presidential candidate is scheduled to address Columbia's "Class Day" on May 16 and will speak at commencement ceremonies at the New School three days later. At the New School, there's a petition asking that McCain be disinvited from commencement ceremonies.

    MANY have wondered if my invitation to Senator John McCain to deliver the commencement address next Saturday to our graduating class at Liberty University represents my support for his possible run for the presidency in 2008. It does not. The senator's speech does not symbolize an endorsement of an unannounced candidacy on my part, and it does not mark the quest for such an endorsement on his part. Mr. McCain has never sought such an endorsement, and I have not offered one. To understand the significance of Mr. McCain's commencement address, it helps to understand Liberty University.

David Woodard, a Clemson University political scientist who doubles as a strategist for conservative Republican candidates, polled 450 South Carolina GOP voters, asking: "When it comes to politics, do you consider yourself closer to George W. Bush or John McCain?" Sixty-three percent picked Bush. Twenty-one percent said it made no difference. And just 16 percent chose McCain. The message? "I think McCain has a lot of work to do if he's going to win here," Woodard told me recently. "There is a long-term memory, especially with Christian conservatives, about his comments after the 2000 race." Last September,...

    ROANOKE, Va. - The leader of the largest branch of American Judaism urged evangelical Christians on Wednesday not to compromise church-state separation as a quick fix to the "disturbing collapse of public morality." Prayer in the schools is not the answer to moral decline in America, Rabbi Eric Yoffie told a chapel service at the Rev. Jerry Falwell's Liberty University in Lynchburg. Yoffie, president of the liberal Union for Reform Judaism, has publicly criticized the Christian right in the past, drawing the distinction on issues such as abortion and gay marriage, both of which evangelical Christians oppose.

WASHINGTON - It's only April 2006, but John McCain isn't wasting any time in the 2008 presidential sweepstakes. For months, the Republican from Arizona has been blitzing the country, meeting with donors, lending his star power to Republican candidates, building his political team, and courting constituencies who spurned him in 2000. And as a sitting senator with his name on controversial immigration legislation, he's faced some boos. As the early front-runner for the GOP nomination, Senator McCain is no longer the outsider, nipping at the heels...

The Republican senator from Arizona will be the commencement speaker in May at Liberty University, the Lynchburg, Va., institution that Falwell founded in 1971. "We agreed to disagree on certain issues, and we agreed to move forward," McCain said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press."

But that's by no means the last that residents of this or any other state will hear of the issue. This week Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate renewed their push for a similar amendment to the federal constitution. What's striking about the 16-page paper released by the Senate's Republican Policy Committee is that it could have been written for a readership of one: Sen. John McCain. The last time the Senate took up a marriage amendment, in 2004,...
