could someone explain this to me?

Partial transcript of comments from the September 13, 2001 telecast of the 
700 Club

JERRY FALWELL: And I agree totally with you that the Lord has protected us 
so wonderfully these 225 years. And since 1812, this is the first time that 
we've been attacked on our soil and by far the worst results. And I fear, as 
Donald Rumsfeld, the Secretary of Defense, said yesterday, that this is only 
the beginning. And with biological warfare available to these monsters --  
the Husseins, the Bin Ladens, the Arafats -- what we saw on Tuesday, as 
terrible as it is, could be miniscule if, in fact -- if, in fact -- God 
continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us 
probably what we deserve.

PAT ROBERTSON: Jerry, that's my feeling. I think we've just seen the 
antechamber to terror. We haven't even begun to see what they can do to the 
major population.

JERRY FALWELL: The ACLU's got to take a lot of blame for this.


JERRY FALWELL: 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."

PAT ROBERTSON: Well, I totally concur, and the problem is we have adopted 
that agenda at the highest levels of our government. And so we're 
responsible as a free society for what the top people do. And, the top 
people, of course, is the court system..

JERRY FALWELL: Pat, did you notice yesterday the ACLU and all the 
Christ-haters, People For the American Way, NOW, etc. were totally 
disregarded by the Democrats and the Republicans in both houses of Congress 
as they went out on the steps and called out on to God in prayer and sang 
"God Bless America" and said "let the ACLU be hanged". In other words, when 
the nation is on its knees, the only normal and natural and spiritual thing 
to do is what we ought to be doing all the time - calling upon God. ~~~

I listen to AAR A LOT--and I do not recall EVER--even once--hearing any of
the hosts even suggest such a thing! On the other hand, there was a very
well publicized statement by a prominent spokesman for the Christian Right
(can't recall which one, but he is very well known, Falwell maybe) that
absolutely DID blame America for 9/11. He specifically blamed abortion and
homosexual unions. The first is legal in all 50 states, thanks to the
Supreme Court's interpretation of the US Constitution in several decisions,
of which Rowe v Wade was only the first. The second is (I believe), legal in
three states--Hawaii, Vermont, and Massachusetts.
