A group of 35 black alumni of Liberty University sent a public letter to President Jerry Falwell Jr. denouncing his recent political rhetoric and activism.

Addressed to Falwell and sent on Monday, the signees of the letter stated that they are “disappointed and deeply grieved by your incendiary rhetoric over the past several years.”

“For several years, you have said and defended inappropriate statements that represent Liberty and our faith very poorly,” read the letter, a copy of which was forwarded to The Christian Post. “You have belittled staff, students and parents, you have defended inappropriate behaviors of politicians, encouraged violence, and disrespected people of other faiths.”
