Moral Values

Falwell sez:
Gay Marriage==Slavery:


COOPER: But Democrats argue look, John Kerry doesn't support gay marriage. I mean he doesn't want a constitutional amendment about it, but he didn't support gay marriage. Why is it that the Republicans have been able to benefit from that whereas the Democrats did not? Is it simply the question of the constitutional -- the federal amendment?

FALWELL: Well, nobody believes John Kerry on that because his voting record, pro choice, his voting record on the family issues, does -- belies his statement. And the fact that he would not support a federal marriage amendment, it equates in our minds as someone 150 years ago saying I'm personally opposed to slavery, but if my neighbor wants to own one or two that's OK. We don't buy that.

It's worth noting that the Southern Baptist Church, an offshoot of the Baptist Church, was created because of Baptist opposition to slavery. As soon as that doctrine was embraced, Baptists in the south simply started their own church...which was able to use Scripture to justify owning other humans.
