Skip to comments.L.A. Times admits false claim about (Jerry) Falwell- Said he tied DeGeneres to 9-11, Katrina

A column by a rabbi published in the Los Angeles Times falsely asserted Rev. Jerry Falwell claimed lesbian actress Ellen DeGeneres played a role in the 9-11 attacks and Hurricane Katrina because she was the host of the Emmy Awards before both events.
The Times ran a correction explaining the Baptist minister "made no such claim."

No! It wasn't Ellen! It was the Illuminati controlled by George Bush! (sarcasm)
He speaks the truth which is why the media is forever trying to discredit the man.
News flash to the rabbi - the United States is NOT a democracy, as much as you liberals have attempted to perverted the Constitution into one, it was established as a representative republic!!! We the people, not, we the more equal than the rest.
I don't know why Falwell is even a target anymore. For the past few years he only speaks when someone asks him to.
I don't know about this particular falsehood, but the media seems to have a rule that libel goes on the front page and retractions go on the back. As the MSM has proven with the 'Bush lied' story, once circulated, trying to correct a lie is like trying to unring a bell, especially if you don't really want to.
bugmenot.com appears to be down - bump for later read.
Ellen DeGenerate is Jewish?
No! It wasn't Ellen! It was the Illuminati controlled by George Bush!
Aww c'mon. Everybody knows it was the glitterati controlled by Rove.Owl_Eagle
(If what I just wrote makes you sad or angry,
One wonders what their recent earnings and circulation history is. With columnists and journalists like this they can't be doing all that well.
You're right! Oh no, where's my new aluminum helmet I got for Chrismaaa.... I mean the helmet I got for the holidays? :) Happy New Years.
ahhh...the truth..as defined by the following Falwellian statement...
"And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. 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 - I point the finger in their face and say "you helped this happen."
Is that what you mean by "the truth"?
Since I ahdere to the Old Testament and believe G-D does punish those who thwart good and embrace evil.......yes, I believe Falwell had a point and has a right to his opinion.
