Two stalwarts in the Christian youth movement, Jerry Falwell, Jr. and Charlie Kirk, have established a new conservative think tank, the Falkirk Center for Faith and Liberty, at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
No longer content to play defense against the lying leftists, Falwell and Kirk are taking a page from the Trump playbook and going on the offensive to fight the liberals who will use any means necessary to regain power, including brainwashing our youth. No deed is too low for the left! Lying is second nature to them, simply a means to manipulate and control others. They have no conscience. They have no soul.
Regarding Faith, the Falkirk Center will fight the liberal liars who are indoctrinating America’s youth with the idea that Jesus was a socialist and that socialism is the path to peace and prosperity.
One would think that a quick read of the history of countries that have undertaken the socialist experiment would be all our youth need to recognize socialism as a complete failure everywhere it has been attempted.
However, with America’s universities dominated by liberal professors who have the undivided attention of our college students and are daily filling their young minds with philosophical garbage, it simply isn’t that easy, made apparent by the huge number of America’s youth now embracing socialism.
Regarding Liberty, like Powdered Wig, the Falkirk Center is dedicated to the restoration of and strict obedience to the United States Constitution. With the left doing all it can to censor and silence American patriots, the much-needed Falkirk Center plans to fight head-on the left’s violations of America’s founding principles guaranteed in our Constitution.

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.
The new think tank, announced Saturday in Lynchburg and previewed to Secrets, was co-founded by two key leaders in the Christian youth movement, Liberty President Jerry Falwell Jr. and Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk.
The Falkirk Center for Faith and Liberty, a combination of their names, will “play offense” against efforts by liberals to water down Judeo-Christian values in the Bible and Constitution in their bid to build support for big government, said Kirk.
“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,” he said in an interview.
He said that the center hopes to answer a question he gets often, “was Jesus Christ a socialist?”
Said Kirk, “We’re in a culture battle right now where you have to fight and play offense, and part of this effort is to try and play offense against the secular Left.”
Falwell added, “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 center will use an aggressive social media campaign to push back against what Kirk described as the Left’s effort to “try to convert young Christians into socialism and to intentionally misrepresent the gospel and the teachings of the Bible to try to convert young people to be further on the left.”
Liberty explained the need for the center this way:
“The need for the Falkirk Center has grown as powerful voices and institutions are increasingly seeking to eliminate Judeo-Christian principles from American culture and society. The news media, elected officials, academic institutions and special interest groups have used their platforms to deny America’s legacy of foundational Judeo-Christian principles and replace them with the creeds of secularism, influencing upcoming generations of Americans at alarming rates.”
It will operate under a 501(c)(3) charter and is owned by Liberty.
The plan to go on offense is similar to how President Trump operates, and it’s no coincidence that both Falwell and Kirk are leading defenders of the president.
Kirk, who stressed that it was an “honor” to work with Falwell in the bid to “organize an army of believers in faith and liberty,” said he expects to be attacked as he and Liberty’s president have for their support for Trump.
In fact, he joked that the best way now to win positive coverage is to join the Never Trump effort that the media plays up.
“If you want to be loved today as a political conservative, go against the president. You’ll get the best press you could ever possibly imagine. But if you want to stand for what’s right, if you want to stand for truth, defend our country, then you have to stand behind this president,” said Kirk, who has been accompanying Donald Trump Jr. during his book tour to colleges and universities to promote Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.
