Anderson Cooper & Larry King: Soulforce’s Mel White on Jerry Falwell

Yesterday, I posted an email statement from Soulforce on the passing of Jerry Falwell.

Soulforce, the Lynchburg, VA-based organizations which fights for freedom for LGBT people from religious and political oppression, was founded by the Reverend Mel White, a former ghost-writer and employee for Falwell.

Lots of people have wondered what Mel White would have to say and if he would make a statement.

Yesterday, he appeared on both Larry King Live and Anderson Cooper 360:

I can’t imagine how Mel White felt yesterday. Knowing him just a little from my involvement with Soulforce and the Equality Ride and seeing his emotions laid bare in front of us Riders at our training, I know yesterday had to have been a hard day for him. He truly wanted his friend, his former boss and colleague to grow and change before he died. He never got the chance to see that change and neither has the rest of the LGBT community and America.
