Mel White on Jerry Falwell
Mel White worked with the late Reverend Jerry Falwell, collaborating on a book project. They knew each other on a professional basis. Then White stunned Falwell and many others in the Christian Community when he announced he was gay. White then tried to work with Falwell over the years, to try get him more enlightened about gays.
Last year, Mel White published a blistering attack on the Christian Right, called “Religion Gone Bad: The Hidden Dangers of the Christian Right”.
He now works with the group Soulforce.
