Happy Turkey Day, The Falwell gives thanks for the "Bearers of False witness"

jerry Falwells T-Day mesage to the faithful included thanks for quite a few republican pundits, all who manage to break the 9th commandment on a nearly daily basis. The ninth commandment reads:
'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'
I guess if you take the definition of neighbor loosly, these guys might have an escape clause. But in general, they have an inclination to take "liberties" with the truth, and their version is unusually discordant with mine. On to Falwells thanks and praise for these pundit prevaricators.
Let me talk to you about five good things of late ... for which this week I hope you and your family around your Thanksgiving table will praise the Lord. ... No. 5: America has alternative news media and is no longer held hostage by the major print and broadcast media. I remember a day when ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN and the major print media controlled all the news flow to the American people and we found ourselves getting warped and distorted news. I thank God now in the 21st century for talk radio, that three hours a day people like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and hundreds of others are telling the truth of what really is going on. I thank God for FOX News Channel [applause]. I thank God for the Internet bloggers and the news producers like,, even The Drudge Report.
Now I bet that Charley Johnson, Instapundit, the Free Republic and Friends, are patting themselves on the back, basking in the praise that includes "internet bloggers like...."

I wonder if he knows that Drudge prefers to share his bed with men. "Jerry [points at Drudge] Leviticus, Abomination, get the drift?" And I doubt he has watched CNN lately 'cause if he did he would be watching a network desparately trying to outfox "FOX" . He seems never loathe to accept their invitation to share with us his wisdom. On November 5th on Anderson Cooper show, he appeared to deny making statements that we can be reasonably certain he made. For instance, the denial:
Falwell denied his habit of comparing homosexuality to bestiality, crack addiction

During an interview with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, fundamentalist Baptist pastor and Moral Majority founder Reverend Jerry Falwell denied ever having equated homosexuality to "smoking crack and bestiality" -- a comparison Falwell has in fact made on several occasions.

From the November 5 edition of CNN's Anderson [rumored to be gay-ed] Cooper 360:

COOPER: I know in the past you believe homosexual behavior is immoral, a sin, you've equated it with smoking crack, bestiality. But what is the threat to you? What is -- I mean, two men saying that they love each to each other, what's the threat?

FALWELL: Well, I haven't equated it to anything, but I believe that the scripture makes it clear that all sexual activity outside of marriage between a man and a woman is wrong, whether it's heterosexual promiscuity or homosexual activity.


COOPER: On homosexuality, I mean, you say you don't equate it to anything, but you do equate it to -- I mean, you have in plenty of interviews equated it to, you know, immoral behavior, smoking crack and bestiality.

FALWELL: Well, it is immoral behavior, of course. No, not bestiality, not crack -- taking crack. Those are different things, but homosexuality is sin.
Following are examples of Falwell equating homosexuality with smoking crack and bestiality:
Say it ain't so Jerr, the ninth my friend, what will we tell the children? That it's OK if you are on the side of righteousness? Moving along to the evidence of a broken covenant.
• FALWELL: Well, look, first of all, Mr. Bush did not make this a 2004 issue. The Massachusetts Supreme Court did, the San Francisco mayor, the New Mexico officials, et cetera. This was made an issue when the Supreme Court gave constitutional protection to sodomy. So here we have now same-sex marriage. What's next, polygamy? ... Why not? And why not bestiality? [CNN, Wolf Blitzer Reports, 2/24/04]

• FALWELL: I don't want anybody in my bedroom any more than you want anybody in your bedroom. But I think this privacy issue goes too far. Is this right to privacy going to legalize prostitution, or bestiality, or the use of cocaine or heroin as long as you do it in your bedroom? Privacy can be taken to a great extent. ... [I]f we're going to do that, then why don't we just legalize bestiality since it's done in the privacy of one's home, perhaps? [MSNBC, Hardball, 6/27/03]

• In the latest letter, the Baptist minister [Falwell] said more money must be received to keep the Moral Majority newspaper and broadcasts going. "Perhaps the most disturbing situation is that our lobbying effort in Washington, D.C., to keep Congress from legalizing sodomy, bestiality, fornication, homosexuality and other perversions is also in danger," the letter added. [Associated Press, 10/23/81]
Jerry, I can see where you aren't equating homosexuality to beastiality, or crack smoking, in your overt attacks on privacy (a crumbling redoubt for the causes of Gay and Women's rights), Oooops sorry, You are a lying sack of shit afterall, Mr. Falwell. Does not baby Jesus love the truth tellers? What of False witness Jerry? That friends is a real Christian man. Is lying a gateway crime? What would Jesus Do Jerry, for the love of Christ, What Would Jesus Do?
