Falwell Apologizes

October 15, 2002

Re "Falwell Apologizes After Remarks Enrage Muslims," Oct. 13: Every year the Rev. Jerry Falwell has to issue a public apology for remarks he has made. In 2001 he apologized for stating that American liberals invited God's judgment in the Sept. 11 events. Now, in 2002, he has apologized to Muslims for asserting that Muhammad was a terrorist. How about a timely apology from the media for lifting Falwell from the anonymity of his country parsonage in Virginia? Does the right to free speech include a microphone to millions? Falwell's 2003 apology, and the remarks that make that apology necessary, could be delivered solely to the congregation at the Thomas Road Baptist Church.
