"AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals. To oppose it would be like an Israelite jumping in the Red Sea to save one of Pharaoh's charioteers ... AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals." Jerry Falwell

"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.'" --Jerry Falwell on the 9/11 attacks

Jerry Falwell supported the Election of George W. Bush, and Bush welcomed his endorsement.

"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." –Pat Robertson

"I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes, and I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you, This is not a message of hate -- this is a message of redemption. But a condition like this will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring about terrorist bombs; it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor." –Pat Robertson, on gay days at Disneyworld

  1. This one should get some of your readers commenting. The sad thing is that there are so many people that not only believe what these so called men of religion are saying, but they will all send their last dollar to keep them living the life of Riley. It does seem strange to me that all the tragic storms seem to go through the bible belt.

  2. This is exactly why we need separation of church and state.

  3. Oh sure, the gay lifestyle and abortions cause God to send destruction upon the earth, but politicians and clergy only get a brief headline when they do a bit of diddling around.

    I'm looking forward to doing a politician so that I can become rich over night.

  4. The pomposity and arrogance of the bible-thumpers is disgusting. And the sheep that follow them are more than ignorant, they are dangerous. Believing that they are "god's chosen people" they have the power to put people in office who should just stay down on the farm. They do not understand that their beliefs belong in their church...and not shoved down the throats of the entire population. Not everyone believes what and who you believe in...and we don't have to in order to vote! According to our founding fathers- muslims, protestants, catholics, and agnostics have rights in this country!

  5. The point of this post was, that if a white preacher spoke hateful things about gay citizens of the United States or black citizens of the United States, and a white candidate for the Presidency was going to the church of that preacher, the media would not have given it nearly as much attention, if any.

    The truth is that white Christians used the bible and the story of Ham to justify slavery in the early years of the our country. In the late twentieth century white Americans used the excuse that "we weren't even here during slavery". Maybe not, but I saw how black people were treated on the South Side of Chicago during the 1950's, and I know nothing was done to give people a chance to advance their station in life. The Reverend Wright grew up during this period, and I can't blame him for being bitter.

    I also have been in a 'whites only' setting and heard the racist jokes. Believe it or not, some of Marks freinds forget he is black and make racist jokes, later apologizing, and saying "We don't think of you as a nigger.".

    My grandfather who I loved and cherished, who I would never disown, was a racist. He had more names for black people than I can remember. Spooks, Shines, Niggers, are just a few that I remember him using, yet he was family and I loved him, it was how he was brought up. This racism definately affected me and I went through a racist period of my own, during my very late twenties and thirties. I was wrong, and I know that all racism is wrong.

    I don't think the Reverend Wright is racist, I think he is just bitter from being treated as something less than human. I also don't think that Barack Obama is responsible for what his pastor says. If he is, then every Catholic is responsible for every evil thing that the Church has done over the last 2000 years, and the church has done plenty wrong.

  6. Even whites have rasist names for other whites...There is white trash, hillbilly, cracker, etc. So I believe this rasism has alot to do with being educated and uneducated. This is sad. Alot of so called religious educated people tout themselves as being superior to others when if fact we live in a nation where...All men are suppose to be created equal. Apparently some religious people think they are superior than the country they live in. Just my opinion.
