In his Sunday sermon, Virginia televangelist Jerry Falwell ticks off just a few of the anti-Christian forces he perceives in society today:
Here we are in the 21st century. Who are some of our modern foes of the faith? Who are our enemies of the cross today? Well let me list but a few.
Liberalism. Liberalism which says not all the Bible is inspired and inerrant. When you find someone who doesn’t believe the Bible is the infallible word of God, you’ve found an enemy of the cross.
Falwell went on to list “relativism,” “evolutionism,” and “radical feminism,” and he urged his congregation and television audience to vote for a state constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage in Virginia and six other states. “You’re either going to vote for the family or against the family,” said Falwell.
