What goes around...
"I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires."
Susan B. Anthony

So last week, I posted about the Christians suing for the right to speak out against homosexuality. If you remember, they claimed that "their faith compels them to speak out against homosexuality."

Well, freedom of expression goes both ways! The Supreme Court has rejected the appeal from Jerry Fallwell to shut down fallwell.com which attacks his (offensive) views on homosexuality. What a clever idea!

I guess this man's experience with bigotry and hate compels him to speak out against people who use their religious faith to discriminate.

You'd think he'd have learned his lesson years ago when that Hustler business went down. He lost that one, too.

This is what happens when you start to feel the pressure: you lash out at the bearer of the message, not at the message itself.

Falwell has a good role model for that: his man in the White House.
