Sorry, I don't go for that.
Jerry Falwell croaked and the world is a better place without him.
He was a charlatan, and a creep. A flim-flam artist.
Rather than use his religion and the word of Jesus to make the world a better place, he used it to further his career and his political agenda. And that of those who had him in their pocket, or vice versa.
I have no use for his brand of religion at all. Nor his hate and his ridiculous pandering.
Falwell's type is everything that this country is NOT about. Let's make sure his type becomes more and more marginalized.
If there really is a hell (and you'd really have to be a little warped to think there is) then he's just about now getting used to his room..
He was a small and stupid man who shouldn't have been given any more credence than a crazy person yelling about the end times on the street corner in Times Square.
Found the quote below in the comment section of a post over at the smirking chimp site. Awesome:
"The long overdue passing of the preeminant jeebus peddlin' con man has finally arrived. The vacuum left by the death of this chicken fried prick, will be filled very soon. How will the servile masses function without someone pointing out 'homos' for them to hate? Too bad his vile influence can't be tossed into the same pit as his buttery white carcass."
Chris Hitchens gets it right. For once, but boy did he:
