He's still an idiot....but here's a thought to stew over.
"Fantastic doctrines (like Christianity or Islam or Marxism) require unanimity of belief. One dissenter casts doubt on the creed of millions. Thus the fear and the hate; thus the torture chamber, the iron stake, the gallows, the labor camp, the psychiatric ward." - Edward Abbey
But he's still an idiot. Falwell is just a rich christian who happens to get his ugly mug on television and put most of the rest of Christianity in a bad bad light.
The point I heard was that it could have just as easily been an American citizen who had his license taken away. Proper enforcement of immigration laws would have stopped this one person, this one time.
