God Strikes Falwell Down



Well according to his version of the way things work.
I'm not one to rejoice in the someone's death but in this case I have trouble in finding any remorse either. His memorial should have a great big 'H' on it for hypocrite.

And this from SFGate

(05-15) 17:04 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- Members of San Francisco's gay and lesbian community this evening are staging an "anti-memorial" in the Castro neighborhood for the Rev. Jerry Falwell, who died today.

Michael Petrelis, a blogger, longtime HIV survivor and organizer of the 5 p.m. event, said that the founder of the Moral Majority needed to be remembered for his legacy of hatred.

I was somehow able to hold back the tears when I heard about that idiot's death. Like you said, one shouldn't rejoice in something like this, but it's tough to have empathy for the a dead person when that person has done so much bad in the world while he professed that he was doing "God's work."

one down 2 more to go, jackson and not so sharpton...

I can see how gay people hated Jerry because he was a fundamentalist but as far as I know the new testament does not call for the death of homosexuals like some other popular religious literature does.

I found this letter to the editor in the L.A. Times:


It sure was heartwarming to see that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was at Jerry Falwell's Liberty University, talking about values.

Gingrich, of course, is the fellow who led the attack on President Clinton over the Lewinsky affair while he was busy having an affair of his own — which, of course, he failed to mention at the time. He later justified his conduct by saying that Clinton lied to a judge, which presumably was worse than Gingrich lying to his wife, friends and the country.

It would have made Falwell, the old huckster, proud to see Gingrich in action.
