;alwell admits he once accepted gays, abortion
Evangelist tells Texarkana Baptist congregation his opposition
to gay marriage, abortion arose after he became a Christian
TEXARKANA—The Rev. Jerry Falwell told
members of the First Baptist Church that, while
growing up in a home with an agnostic father, he
didn't show animosity toward gays or abortion.
"I never had a problem with abortion or gay
marriage until I became a Christian because I
never confronted anyone about it before then,"
Falwell said. "But the things that were true 50
years ago are still true today. Violating God's
principles brings a nation or family to shame, but
following them will make you great in the way
the Lord wants you to be great."
Falwell is the founder of the Thomas Road
Baptist Church and Liberty University in
Lynchburg, Va. "I was not raised in the home of
a Baptist preacher. I didn't even own a Bible
when I got saved," Falwell said. "My father was
agnostic and one of the largest distributors of
whiskey during Prohibition. Fie was also the
sheriff, but he died from overindulgence of alco-
hol by the time he was in his mid-50s. "
In his address, Falwell lamented the nation's
high divorce rate and absentee fathers. "A 50 per-
cent divorce rate is unacceptable. Somehow we
must get attention of the fathers as to their priest-
ly responsibility to their wives and children and
that has to be
done through the
has been asleep
at the switch.
That is why one
are aborted each
year, and some
want to take 'one
God' out of the
pledge and legalize same-sex marriage.
Politicians can't save our country, but the church
can," he said.
