Dueling Reverends + Hannity = Chaos

Reported by Deborah - February 12, 2005

Reverend Jim Wallis, an Evangelical Christian and Democrat,debated Reverend Jimmy Falwell and the sparks were flying.Wallis made entirely too much sense in his assertions that the Christian right has concentrated on two issues, homosexuality and abortion' forgetting the Christian principles regarding war, racism, and poverty.Even Falwell and Hannity had a hard time arguing with that so they attacked.

Falwell refused to accept that Wallis could be eveangelical because he voted for Kerry a pro choice candidate. Falwell badgered Wallis about being pro life claiming that he couldn't possibly be against gay marriage and abortion and still accept the rights of other's to make their choice. Wallis was clear that he believes in Democratic principles.

Hannity entered the mix with his badgering question, "Are you a pacifist? Just answer, are you a pacifist?" Then he went into his rant about Wallis not supporting Reagan and Bush. Falwell added "If it were up to him, we would be speaking German right now."

Falwell continued to talk over Wallis as Hannity just sat back and promoted the chaos just to fog the issue and try to discredit Wallis.
Hannity ended the segment with an amused and satisfied expression on his face.
