Jerry Falwell fails to get fallwell.com shut down.

CNet News.com reports that the religious nutjob Jeryy Falwell has failed to get the website, Fallwell.com closed down:

High court skips Falwell Web site case

A legal spat over a Web site criticizing the Rev. Jerry Falwell for his antigay views won’t ascend to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The justices on Monday declined without comment to take up the evangelical preacher’s appeal, which challenged the operator of Fallwell.com, a site that aims to explain “why Rev. Falwell is completely wrong about people who are gay or lesbian.” The televangelist had claimed the domain name’s spelling was too close to that of his official Web presence and asked the courts to shut it down.

The site in question is quite interesting, in that it disproves many of Falwell’s teachings on gay and lesbianism. The court decided that the domain name and site name does not infringe trademarks and is sufficiently different from Falwell’s own site at jerryfalwell.com.

Score one for free speech.

  1. Yes!

    However, Falwell still depresses the shit out of me with his narrow minded, homophobic, overly self-righteous, repressive, dangerously influential banter.

  2. It’s not a matter of right and wrong. Butt-fucking is disgusting no matter how you look at it.

    dangerously influential banter

    As much as I hate religious fools, we need more people like him. Just leave out all the “god” garbage.

  3. Gay couples MUST engage in some form of sex (oral, manual, toys, etc.). It’s human nature. You can’t just wack off in the bathroom forever, it gets boring after you do it a few times aweek. The same goes for lesbians too.

    Most men find lesbian action very sexual. But, would you perform sexual acts with another man (Even just kissing and touching) if lots of women think it’s “hot”? I’d hang myself before doing shit like that.

  4. Doesn’t most “butt-fucking” take place withing heterosexual monogamous relationships? I remember reading that somewhere.

    I for one do not find it at all disgusting. In fact I quite enjoy it. So does my girlfriend.

  5. Mick has a point – ‘butt-fucking’ is not an exclusively gay thing. Sure, some gay men do it. But some heterosexual couples do it too, as ‘something different’ from normal sex. And some men and women die virgins, without ever attempting sex of any kind.

    I’m afraid to say this, Moloch, but you seem to be falling victim to some of the anti-gay rhetoric that nutjobs like Falwell spread around.

  6. Honestly the solution is quite simple: If you find anal sex disgusting then don’t have anal sex. I find eating raw tomatoes disgusting no matter how you look at it, but you don’t see me praising bigoted religious dickheads who agree with me about it.

  7. I find eating raw tomatoes disgusting no matter how you look at it, but you don’t see me praising bigoted religious dickheads who agree with me about it.

    That’s because there are no bigoted religious dickheads preaching about the evils of eating raw tomatoes, Les!  tongue laugh

  8. I find butt-fucking extremely erotic. I love watching John’s friends do it to him. I don’t think there’s anything on the planet that I find hotter.

  9. Sadie-

    You better not pout
    You better not cry
    No fucking in the butt
    I’m telling you why
    Jerry Falwell’s coming

    I think you and John would get along great with my wife and I.

    Didn’t you mean ‘how I look at it’? confused

    Next you’ll be telling us, as the old missionaries did, the missionary position should be the only ‘lawful’ position … and oral sex should be banned under pain of death. I read somewhere that oral sex is still illegal in some states in the US and you should keep your clothes on during sex – maybe that was Afghanistan. Whatever.
    I’ve heard you have more than your fair share of Wowsers there. Bummer?!
    As I have no idea how to change the description of the link, you’ll see Wowser here:    http://www.cyberbondi.com.au/reception/bondi/history/people/wowser.html & Wiki has a nice definition too.

    You can’t just wack off in the bathroom forever; it gets boring after you do it a few times a week.

    Having lived without a woman for nearly thirty years and not having ‘had’ one for over six years, I’m happy to say, I’m sexually self-sufficient, in front of the on-screen porn, not in the bathroom, or toilet, several times a week and nowhere near bored with it, yet.
    Nothing beats the real thing.
    Then again simple minds … simple pleasures … that reminds me …  LOL

  12. think you and John would get along great with my wife and I.

    We’re real party-ers, and we’re real goers, nudge nudge, wink wink. LOL

  13. Sorry, K-man, forgot to attribute that quote to you in my above post.

    LuckyJohn19: I read somewhere that oral sex is still illegal in some states in the US…

    Actually, I believe that in 2003, with the Lawrence v. Texas Supreme Court ruling, anti-sodomy laws were finally struck down. I think oral copulation is often grouped with anal intercourse under the blanket term “sodomy” (at least in legal affairs, or so I’ve heard).

  14. But the porn movies I watch make it look so easy!

    hehehehe

    I was watching an episode of Family Business about that once. (It’s a sitcom / reality show on Showtime about the porn business.) Those folks spend HOURS taking enema after enema until what comes out is as clear as bottle water.

    What a weird way to make a living.

  15. i just couldnt slack in the peanut gallery and not say anything on this one. hahah poor john.

    Remember boys and girls, oral always comes before anal…..

    probably just as good in theory as is in practice.

  16. hahah poor john.

    Naw, don’t pity him. He’s punch-drunk happy at the end.  smile

    My, this thread, and my comments in particular, have taken a turn for the personal! LOL

    To get back on topic—suck it, Jerry. Literally as well as figuratively (you know you want to).

  17. S-Sadie:

    … nudge nudge, wink wink.

    Eric Idle: Say no more! raspberry

    … suck it, Jerry … (you know you want to)

    Have a nutha drink John!
    Okay. LOL  LOL  LOL

  18. Can I just say that you guys talk about butt sex more often than I do and I’m the freakin’ Gay Pope: “Pope Been A Dick VII”.

    Ohh shit, I just saw a woman on TV who looks like Mike Myers! That is NOT a pretty woman.

    Anyway, let me leave you with some silly facts and possibly sillier responses to them:

    Recycling one glass jar, saves enough energy to watch TV for 3 hours! (Now you have an excuse for watching more TV…if you recycle, that is).

    A pig’s orgasm lasts for 30 minutes. (That’s a long damn time to wait for a cigarette).

    In ancient Egypt, Priests plucked every hair from their bodies, including their eyebrows and eyelashes. (And they looked extremely surprised all the time).

    A cat’s urine glows under black light. (Save money on black light posters; hang the kitty’s litter box liner).

    Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than Left-handed people do. (But they take longer to utilize Internet porn)

    Polar bears are left handed. (They ALL die earlier).

    Five Jell-O flavors that flopped: celery, coffee, cola, apple, and chocolate. (My money’s on peanut butter).

    A duck’s quack doesn’t echo, and no one knows why. ( Good thing too. That Aflac duck is annoying enough already.

    Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenously. (And extremely blech if you take a bite out of the actual nut. Trust me, I know).

    The first toilet ever seen on television was on “Leave It to Beaver”. (And the first flush was heard on “All in the Family”. Big deal. What prudes we are!)

    In Cleveland, Ohio, it’s illegal to catch mice without a hunting license. (And if Dick Cheney was hunting them instead, he still wouldn’t apply for a license).

    Pound for pound, hamburgers cost more than new cars. (And if you eat too many you’ll weigh as much as one).

    On average, 100 people choke to death on ballpoint pens every year. (No wonder they chain them down at the Department of Motor Vehicles. Chances are you’re already feeling suicidal).

    Elephants can’t jump. Every other mammal can. (That’s a relief! A jumping elephant is something you’d want to avoid at all costs).

    The 3 most valuable brand names on earth: Marlboro, Coca-Cola, and Budweiser, in that order. (No one admitted to having heard of KY Jelly – Even fewer admitted to trying it on toast.)

    The Bible has been translated into Klingon. (It converted more than a few Klingons bringing about the expression “Live long and Rapture”).

    Every 100g of Corn Flakes has 1 mg of fecal matter. (That’s not so G-R-R-E-A-T).

    The United States has never lost a war when donkeys were used. (Or been able to brag about the win).

    Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. (I’ll leave that one for you guys to finish…)

  19. Does that have anything to do with transporting illegal porpoises accross state lines? I digress . . LOL
