Falwell funeral coverage

Funeral services were held today for the last evangelist, Jerry Falwell, at the Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg Virginia. More than 10,000 mourners turned out to celebrate the life of the man who built the Moral Majority into a conservative Christian empire that influenced national politics, in part through creative use of media.

According to the Channel 10 news station in Lynchburg, people began waiting outside the church as early as 1:30 in the morning. For an in-depth look at this story, please click here.
