'Gays To Blame' Falwell

(September 14, Washington) Fundamentalist Christian minister Jerry Falwell is blaming gays and pro choice advocates for the devastating terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon.
Speaking on the 700 Club religious programme Falwell said, "The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America. I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen'."
He made the comments to 700 Club host Pat Robertson. The pair have been at the forefront of opposing gay rights in the US.
Robertson told Falwell he totally agreed with him. "The problem is we have adopted their agenda at the highest levels of our government."
National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Executive Director Lorri L. Jean accused Falwell of using the tragedy to further his own goals.
"The terrible tragedy that has befallen our nation, and indeed the entire global community, is the sad by-product of fanaticism. It has its roots in the same fanaticism that enables people like Jerry Falwell to preach hate against those who do not think, live, or love in the exact same way he does.
"The tragedies that have occurred this week did not occur because someone made God mad, as Mr. Falwell asserts. They occurred because of hate, pure and simple. It is time to move beyond a place of hate and to a place of healing. We hope that Mr. Falwell will apologize to the U.S. and world communities.
"Our hearts go out to the victims of this week's tragedies and their friends and family members. We are thankful to the police officers, firefighters, paramedics and other emergency personnel who are working tirelessly to lead the relief efforts."
My daughter would be so upset with you right now. His name is Tinky Winky, not Inky WinkyOriginally posted by el presidente Highsteppa
I wasn't believing in his crusade against Inky Winky (the "gay" teletubby) until I started seeing it on BBC and CNN.
I'm kind of inclined to believe it.
