Falwell backs basic rights for gays

Southern Voice Online: Falwell hints gay rights support - Conservative leader calls housing, employment for gays 'basic rights'

Not special rights, but common rights; housing, employment are the ones he mentioned.
"Civil rights for all Americans, black, white, red, yellow, the rich, poor, young, old, gay, straight, et cetera, is not a liberal or conservative value," Falwell went on to say. "It's an American value that I would think that we pretty much all agree on."
Specifically he said:
FALWELL: Well, housing and employment are not special rights. I think—I think the right to live somewhere and to live where you please or to work where you please, as long as you‘re not bothering anybody else, is a basic right, not a—not a special right.
