Here are my friend Wayne Besen's comments on Falwell's passing. Wayne and I worked together in exposing Falwell's ex-gay protoge/poster boy, Michael Johnston, as a fraud. The details of Michael Johnston's story of fraud and deception can be found here: http://www.washingtonblade.com/2003/8-8/news/national/exgay.cfm I fully understand Wayne's feelings:
Fundamentalist preacher Jerry Falwell was found unconscious in his office today and rushed to a hospital in Lynchburg, Virginia, but later died, according to various media reports. Falwell made his fortune on the backs of GLBT people. He degraded them and formed the Moral Majority in an effort to ruin America and turn it into a fundamentalist nation. Before he turned his wrath to gay people, he was a staunch opponent of interracial marriage and was pro-segregation. He certainly was a busy man.Won't the good preacher be shocked when he finds himself at the gates of Hell this morning! Man, I would love to post that video on YouTube. I must go now and mourn, as I can hardly contain my sorrow.
