Gay rights groups called Falwell an "agent of intolerance" and "the founder of the anti-gay industry" for statements he had made and for campaigning against LGBT social movements. DeGeneres mocked him, saying, "Really, he called me that? Ellen DeGenerate? I've been getting that since the fourth grade. I guess I'm happy I could give him work. Falwell's legacy regarding homosexuality is complicated by his support for LGBT civil rights see "civil rights" section above , as well as his attempts to reconcile with the LGBT community in later years. In October Falwell hosted a meeting of evangelicals with homosexuals at Thomas Road Baptist Church for an "Anti-Violence Forum", during which he acknowledged that some American evangelicals' comments about homosexuality entered the realm of hate speech that could incite violence.
We've said 'go somewhere else, we don't need you here [at] our churches. An article published in by the Salon website had noted Tinky Winky's status as a gay icon. Apart from those characteristics Tinky Winky also carries a magic bag which the NLJ and Salon articles said was a purse. Falwell added that "role modeling the gay lifestyle is damaging to the moral lives of children". After the September 11 attacks in , Falwell said on Pat Robertson 's The Club , "I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU , People For the American Way , all of them who have tried to secularize America.
I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen. Falwell has also said, "Labor unions should study and read the Bible instead of asking for more money. When people get right with God, they are better workers. Falwell set out in his Christian ministry as a Fundamentalist, having attended a conservative Bible college and following strict standards of ecclesiastical and personal separatism ; he was thus known and respected in IFB circles, being praised in Christian fundamentalist publications such as The Sword of the Lord.
Though he never officially stated his rejection of this movement, the evidence of his life from the late s onwards indicates that he moved toward a conservative Evangelical standpoint to the right of mainline Protestantism or "open" Evangelicalism but to the left of traditional, separatist Fundamentalism. It was reported that he had refused to attend parties at which alcohol was served early in his life, but he relaxed this stricture as he was increasingly invited to major events through the contacts which he developed in conservative politics and religion.
His foray into national politics appears to have been a catalyst for this change; when he established the Moral Majority which joined "Bible Christians" Independent and conservative Southern Baptists in a political alliance with Charismatics , Roman Catholics , Jews , Mormons and others and rejected the level of separation that was preached by most movement Fundamentalists. Bob Jones University declared that the Moral Majority organization "was Satanic", holding the view that it was a step towards the apostate one-world church and government body because it would cross the line from a political alliance to a religious one between true Christians and the non-born-again, which was forbidden by their interpretation of the Bible.
David Cloud's Way of Life Literature also criticized Falwell for his associations with Catholics, Pentecostals and liberal Christians, tracing his alleged "apostasy" back to his role in the political Religious Right.

Though he never wavered in his belief in the inerrancy of the Bible except for moderating its alleged view of racial differences, the significance of baptism, and other concepts relative to his theology and the doctrines which conservative Christians widely see as essential to salvation, his rhetoric generally became more mellow, less militant and comparatively more inclusive from the s onwards.
Cultural anthropologist Susan Friend Harding, in her extensive ethnographic study of Falwell, noted that he adapted his preaching to win a broader, less extremist audience as he grew famous. This manifested itself in several ways: For example, he no longer condemned "worldly" lifestyle choices such as dancing, drinking wine, and attending movie theaters; softening his rhetoric which predicted an apocalypse and God's vengeful wrath; and shifting from a belief in outright Biblical patriarchy to a complementarian view of appropriate gender roles.
He further mainstreamed himself by aiming his strongest criticism at "secular humanists" , pagans or various liberals in place of the racist , anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic rhetoric that was common among Southern Fundamentalist preachers but increasingly condemned as hate speech by the consensus of American society. Jerry Falwell opposed Islam. However, as he refused to remove his comments about Islam from his website, the sincerity of his apology was doubted.

In , Larry Flynt 's pornographic magazine Hustler carried a parody of a Campari ad, featuring a mock "interview" with Falwell in which he admits that his "first time" was incest with his mother in an outhouse while drunk. This was upheld on appeal. Flynt then appealed to the U. Supreme Court , which unanimously held that the First Amendment prevents public figures from recovering damages for emotional distress caused by parodies. After Falwell's death, Larry Flynt released a comment regarding his friendship over the years with Falwell. My mother always told me that no matter how much you dislike a person, when you meet them face to face you will find characteristics about them that you like.
Jerry Falwell was a perfect example of that. I hated everything he stood for, but after meeting him in person, years after the trial, Jerry Falwell and I became good friends. He would visit me in California and we would debate together on college campuses. I always appreciated his sincerity even though I knew what he was selling and he knew what I was selling.
