I am not nearly as connected as some people on this message board to the going ons at LU and I was aware of a lot of the stuff prior of 2019. Was it worse than I knew? Absolutely! But I am also not a board member. There was smoke for a while before this starting leaking out.
I can see an argument where some didn't know but there is nobody that can convince me that they nobody on the board at least knew there was something fishy going on.
Some were very well aware of what was going on. Maybe not with the pool-boy thing, but certainly about the drinking, not going to church and management style problems, among others.
It is not hard to believe that maybe none of the bored knew about the pool-boy and Becky. After all, a person in Jr's position, has rumors circling about them 24/7. Sr. did as well. We know the media is always looking for anything negative about a Falwell. The fact that they were only able to come up with the hostel deal, says that they could not prove a sexual blackmail connection going on, until the pool boy, Jr. let it out.
I am not defending the bored. Just saying that it is very plausible that some did not know what was happening. I know for certain, that one bored member didn't know anything was amiss. And he would have been the first one that I would have predicted, knew everything. To his credit, he was 100% on board for getting rid of Jr. right away, also "fancy pants"
In any event, this is sad for the university. The root cause, is one of spiritual bankruptcy, by Jr. and others. Hopefully we will see a new spiritual awakening within the leadership and student body. Sadly, if I had to bet, I would bet on the student body.
