The Rev. Jerry Falwell was on Anderson Cooper last night, talking "values" and whatnot. The argument seems to have gotten, uhm, personal:
COOPER: But there are a lot of gay families out there, Reverend Falwell, there are a lot of gay families out there. I think there are like a million kids being raised by gay parents who say that if you want to protect families, you know, civil unions will give inheritance rights, will give Social Security, survivor benefits rights to...We assume that is a royal "we." (We're big fans.)
FALWELL: Anderson, that's all a red herring. If you want to leave something to your cat, you can do that in your will...
COOPER: It's not a red herring. That's simply not true. It's not true. You know we pay taxes.
