Jerry Falwell was a Baptist minister. He started adult life supporting racist segregation and preached that a separate, presumably inferior position for black people was God’s plan. He supported racial segregation in the USA and apartheid in Africa. This demonstrates how religion in general and Christianity in particular can be used to support a range of views depending on personal preference, see Christian morality for more.

Later Falwell assumed that most people accepted his highly restrictive sexual code and founded the self-styled, “Moral majority”. This imagined majority had so little support that it was later disbanded.

Jerry Falwell died in 2007 but his legacy lives in in the ironically named and restrictive Liberty University. Naturally there is any number of other extreme fundamentalist Christians ready to take Falwell’s place.
