Rev. Jerry Falwell calls on all Christian ministries to "halt any rhetoric that might engender violence against the homosexual community, and vice-versa." Falwell makes his statements while standing with Mel White, a gay minister who co-wrote Falwell's autobiography.

For years, Jerry Falwell has been one of the most prominent voices attacks homosexuality and gay rights. While his most recent statements are a long way from a reversal of his earlier positions, they do represent a softening his of rhetoric and this gives a lot of hope to gays in America.
