Excuse Me, While I Kiss This Guy
It's especially fun when a news source does this.
Correction: In the original version of this report, NEWSWEEK misquoted Falwell as referring to "assault ministry." In fact, Falwell was referring to "a salt ministry"—a reference to Matthew 5:13, where Jesus says "Ye are the salt of the earth." We regret the error.I was all set to write about how Liberty University is ranked higher than Harvard in national debate, and that Harvard lost to them in their last match-up, until I saw that last paragraph. Falwell (who I'm pretty sure is nuts) was speaking about the students as "a salt ministry", but Susannah Meadows heard "assault ministry". I guess we hear what we want to hear, but that is really hilarious. I think I'll start using that phrase from here on out.
"We're taking this food down to the soup kitchen as a part of our assault ministry."
