Not that its news, but...

Sometimes Jerry Falwell can still surprise with a new twist on rank offensiveness. This morning Falwell was a guest on Tavis Smiley with a liberal minister, talking about 'morality in the presidential election', or gay marriage as far as he was concerned. On Kerry's position of opposing the FMA but personally opposing gay marriage, Falwell said, "That's like 50 years ago saying, I'm opposed to slavery, but it's OK if my neighbor owns one".

A fine example of "in the same breath" offensiveness. The fact that Falwell can go on the Tavis Smiley show, the premier black radio newsmagazine, and toss around the fight against slavery as an analogy that deserves to be on the same planet as the fight against gay marriage is really something.
