    While I'm no fan of Falwell, if you read the complete quote from the section identified in the

    Senator McCain, do you agree with Jerry Falwell's statement tht "Blacks, Hispanics, women, etc. are God-ordained minorities who do indeed deserve minority status"?

    portion, he was railing against homosexuals complaining that they don't deserve minority status because, in his mind, they get the status for misbehaving while other groups attain the status for the way they are born.

    So for that quote, the complaint is not that he considers those groups minorities, but that he considers homosexuality to be lacking in propriety for minority status despite the prejudice they face every day.
