Larry Flynt Remembers His Friend Jerry Falwell

A lot of hateful things have been said about the late Reverend Falwell in the past week, but to my surprise, one of the most touching remembrances came from none other than the infamous pornographer Larry Flynt.

Flynt and Falwell hardly agreed about anything, but what they did share was a mutual respect for one another. Despite being on opposing sides during their Supreme Court case Hustler Magazine v. Falwell, the porn publisher and the evangelical minister eventually became friends, mainly due to an effort on the part of Falwell to reach out to Flynt.

Jerry Falwell rightly understood that we are all God’s children, and even though you may not agree with the opinions and the lifestyle of someone else, you can still extend a hand of acceptance and friendship.
