Falwell Finds the Rapture

A very jowly Jerrry Falwell

Breaking: Rev. Jerry Falwell, founder of "Moral Majority", checks out at age 73.

This from CNN:
The executive vice president of Falwell's Liberty University, Ron Godwin, said Falwell was found unresponsive around 10:45 a.m. and taken to Lynchburg General Hospital. Godwin said he was not sure what caused the collapse, but "he has a history of heart challenges."

Sure does. Here's the Rev. Falwell's challenged heart responding to the 9/11 bombings of the World Trade Center:

"The ACLU's got to take a lot of blame for this . . . throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans and the abortionists and the feminists and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle . . . all of them who have tried to secularize America. I point the finger in their face and say, 'You helped this happen.'"

Hope he's finding out right now what makes god really mad.

the Houston Chronicle quotes the late Falwell:

"I shudder to think where the country would be right now if the religious right had not evolved,"

evolved from what into what, pray tell?

and of course our man Pat Robertson:
"Jerry has been a tower of strength on many of the moral issues which have confronted our nation,

what say ye, Johnny McCain?

The little soul molester crawled back under the rock he crawled out from under...now if PR and the rest of the MM would do the same we'd be a lot better off...I hope the gods called him out to the spiritual woodshed for an eternal beating with a honkin'
big stick. No sorrow from this neck of the woods...

I read that during the first round of debates three of the current batch of Republican candidates clarified that they do not believe in evolution--you can't get elected in this country if you don't believe in gods but you CAN if you don't believe in science? Is this Turkey, Instanbul or the US? Am I still in the 21st century? I leave for a weekend and I come back and find out Darwin doesn't exist!

First of all I will not personally miss Jerry Falwell or his wacky-doodle pronouncements. But somnebody will. The man has family and followers and they will grieve his passing. Many of those who adore him do so for entirely wrong reasons but right now they are hurting and have an empty void in their misguided hearts because of his passing.

More importantly, by mocking those now dead and gone you demean yourselves more than your target(s). None of us has finished our circuit in this life yet and as bad as things are now with the Christo-fascist movement for which Jerry
Falwell was a founding father, they could get much much worse! (think of how the Crusades morphed into the inquisition bringing torture and killing in the name of God home from faraway lands.)

Poet,
I do appreciate the fact that there are family members out there that are grieving the loss of a loved one - perusing progressive websites I see that there is some serious animosity towards what the man said and stood for. Remind me not to tell others what God thinks.
