  •  He's saying exactly the same thing that (12+ / 0-)

    Falwell and Robertson were saying after 9/11:  God is punishing because we have turned away from Him, in this case by taking God out of the school curriculum.  It just doesn't sound quite the same because he is more a glib politician than a preacher and knows how to spout this theologically unsustainable garbage without inviting immediate criticism like they did...

      “The pagans and the abortionists and the feminists and the gays and the lesbians... 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’.”

              --Rev. Jerry Falwell
