Television evangelist Falwell dies at 73
By SUE LINDSEY, Associated Press Writer
LYNCHBURG, Va. - The Rev. Jerry Falwell, the folksy, small-town preacher who used the power of television to found the Moral Majority and turn the Christian right into a mighty force in American politics during the Reagan years, died Tuesday at 73.
. . .
Over the years, Falwell waged a landmark libel case against Hustler magazine founder Larry Flynt over a raunchy parody ad, and created a furor in 1999 when one of his publications suggested that the purse-carrying "Teletubbies" character Tinky Winky was gay.Not to make light of anyone's death (and condolences to his family and friends), but Falwell was known for blaming...
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....for the attacks of 9/11/01.
I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen.'And Tinky Winky too.
UPDATE: Tinky Winky says bye-bye to Jerry Falwell
