Televangelist’s aggravate me.
Jerry Falwell sued a young man who dared to publicly disagreed with him, then pushed the case to the Supreme court who declined to hear the case yesterday.

“I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America.
