Falwell just doing what he does best... The so-called "Values Voters" Summit this weekend featured Jerry Falwell's opening salvo against a Hillary Clinton presidential candidacy when he remarked that such an event would mobilize "his" constituency better than a run by Lucifer. It is no surprise that fear be used as motivation by a preacher; we've been terrorized by threats of hurricanes and brimstone and the end of the world for a long time. Claims that he had attempted to "demonize" Senator Clinton with his remark were denied, of course. As he has done many times before, his slurs are quickly followed by some kind of demur...after the sound bite has been projected all over the world.
