Seeing that GOP congressmen and Religious Right leaders alike have appeared on Rick Wiles’ insane conspiracy theory radio program “Trunews,” we weren’t that surprised that his guest yesterday was Jonathan Falwell, Jerry Falwell’s son and successor at the pulpit of Thomas Road Baptist Church.
Falwell warned Wiles that the Supreme Court’s recent decision on marriage equality means that “I can marry a child” or “I can marry an animal” because America is making law based on “whatever seems to be popular.”
The conservative televangelist said that gay marriage can be reversed, just like America ended “the horrors of slavery.”
Falwell also predicted that the government will force pastors to perform same-sex marriages, alleging that Couer d’Alene, Idaho, has already threatening pastors with fines and jail time if they refuse to officiate same-sex couples’ weddings. The claim that Couer d’Alene authorized such a measure is actually a myth propagated by right-wing activists.
