On MSNBC, they pushed this story all day!

Rowling unveiled her news in New York's Carnegie Hall on Friday, in answer to the question of whether Dumbledore -- a believer in the prevailing power of love -- had ever fallen in love himself.

"I always thought of Dumbledore as gay," she replied, explaining that Dumbledore fell in love with his brilliant friend Gellert Grindelwald, who later became a powerful dark wizard whom Dumbledore defeated.

Apparently this major news break justifies to some wingnuts that Jerry Falwell was right about a certain Teletubbie. I've given up trying to make sense out of the authoritarian cult....

Can you help us out?
