Is this the Legacy of the Moral Majority?

Business partner of Falwells says affair with evangelical power couple spanned seven years
Giancarlo Granda says his sexual relationship with the Falwells began when he was 20. He says he had sex with Becki Falwell while Jerry Falwell Jr, head of Liberty University and a staunch supporter of President Trump, looked on.

Should we be surprised that a couple with great political and religious power would be involved in a sexual affair such as this?

Will Trump's supporters be dismayed by this news or given the President's own history consider it par for the course?

The fundamental legacy of the moral majority is that it was neither.

Becki Falwell is now claiming that her husband and Trump supporter, Jerry Falwell Jr. did not watch her sexual encounters with Giancarlo Granda. If this is true, one has to wonder why this Trump supporter has resigned as president of Liberty University.

Will these events cause fellow Trump supporters to question the integrity of those who support the President or will this simply be viewed as par for the course amongst those who have both political and religious power?

Liberty {sic} University which was founded by Moral {sic} Majority {sic} leader Falwell will always have a legacy of McCarthyite intolerance:

As always, the right wing claims it is others who impose "political correctness" on them but, in fact, nobody practices that form of intolerance more than they do.
