"Blow them all away in the name of the Lord!"
So said Jerry Falwell yesterday on a CNN interview with Jesse Jackson conducted by Wolf Blitzer. Not surprisingly so far I've searched the CNN transcripts for yesterday and there is no transcript from this program so if I hadn't heard it with my own ears I wouldn't have really thought it possible that such statements could be made on supposedly informative TV these days.
I mean did I just awake in the middle ages? Wow! If this is the Christian way of approaching things God help us if any heathens gain power. Mind you when Jesse responded that it was not Iraq which attacked the US but Osama and Al Quada hiding out in Afghanistan, Falwell like most Americans found it difficult to wrap his mind around the difference and started a mini-tirade. I guess all non-Americans are the same; a threat to U.S National Security. Can you say rampant Xenophobia?
Isn't it rather sad when a 'man of God' can come on TV and spout such hostility. What happened to loving your fellow man?
