Falwell for Gay Rights???

A resourceful e-mailer recently informed me that none other than the "Reverend" Jerry Falwell recently informed the Roanoke Times of his support for the civil/contractual rights of the gay community. Unfortunately, the link is now dead, but this snippet is quoted verbatim from the story:

He [Falwell] insists that people who support such initiatives [against gay marriage] "are not homophobes. They just believe the family is the family." Gays should be protected from discrimination in housing and employment, Falwell said, but "most Americans ... don't want government saying gay marriage is OK. That's against physiology, against common sense, and for Christians, against the Bible.

Falwell appears to be in disagreement with Delegate Robert Marshall (R-Prince William) and other anti-family Virginia Republicans who seek to strip citizens of contractual rights.
