OK, the extreme right has lost one of its most loony religious conservative spokesmen with the death of Falwell. Now can you guys throw out Al Gore to help maintain balance in the universe? Or maybe Dennis Kucinich?
With the lefts attack on all things Christian, people like him are a necessary evil. I personally had no use for the man, but I shall not rejoice in his death.


With him now reaping "the ultimate reward" in heaven, shouldn't one rejoice that he is dead?

It's not like he's a Muslim and getting 24 virgins or something distasteful like that. He's got an eternal life, free from hairdressers and interior designers.


Far too extreme for me, but I am a Christian and in terms of religious belief I say judge not lest ye be judged. RIP Mr Falwell.

[Lets make Mrs. Clinton our candidate!]


The left does not attack "all things Christian"...it is the pretenders they attack. Falwell worshiped money and influence and laughed all the way to the bank.
Nothing about his behavior was remotely Christian.
That he professed otherwise was the reason the left vilified him.


Far too extreme for me, but I am a Christian and in terms of religious belief I say judge not lest ye be judged. RIP Mr Falwell.

"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, the ACLU, People For the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America. I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen.'"
~Falwell after 9-11

RIP, and let his vile hatred die with him

Those who do not learn from the past, are doomed to repeat it.


He helped severely wound American political life.


Now that Jerry is gone, will we ever find out who killed Vince Foster? And who will keep me informed about all the bad that the gays/women/abortionist/liberals/hippies/commies/Northerners/Democrats are up too? How will I know who to hate? God has truly lifted his veil of protection from us.


Agreed merci! In my belief; he's probably having to deal with those extreme positions as we speak.
Some tough explaining to do, indeed!

[Lets make Mrs. Clinton our candidate!]


Chuck there is no moral equivalence between Falwell and Gore. The mere fact that you would choose to smear the guy and put them on the same level is really a weak argument. Gore is a global warming zealot and that is it. This guy was a hate spewing anti-American that used his power and influence to pour that bile into the minds of his flock.

As others have stated, liberals do not dislike all things Christian. If you took the time to actually examine the life and works of Jesus you would find a lot of LIBERAL ideas there. I think it is a cop out to use such a silly 'the left hates Christians' statement. Perhaps if organized right wing Christians in this country actually practiced what they supposedly believe in, the world would be a far better place.


Falwell wasn't evil because he was a Christian, it was because he wanted to desecrate the seperation of church and state and make Christianity the state religion. He wanted non-Christian tax payers to fund Christianity. He wanted non-Christians to be subject to Christian based laws. People like that are dangerous and un-American.

I have great respect for Christians. They have come up with pretty imaginative ways to answer the unanswerables.


Even if I didn't know the guy...ya know I would be suspicious of any one who keeps a giant picture of themselves behind their desk like that. Reminds me of the two guys talking and one says well that's enough about me, lets talk about you and what you think of me....ha

[Lets make Mrs. Clinton our candidate!]


True enough. Shouldn't he have a picture of, oh, I don't know, JESUS behind him?

Sakaki O.

I would suggest that people NOT try to infer Jesus's words and political things, as Jesus's statements transcends politics.

If people don't Falwell, that's alright. I didn't like him myself. I'm just not gonna speak ill of the dead until after the funeral.


I say "good riddance to bad rubbish." Why should anybody of good faith and Christian values mourn him even for a minute.

That's the hypocrisy in orthodox religion. It is a cult. Did you all mourn Koresh? Jim Jones? Sorry. Falwell and Robertson are the biggest frauds in the whole group. Money . . . money . . . money. Well, now there's one less to do the devil's work.

Nothing spiritual about any of them.


The quote that comes to my mind, and I don't know who said it is, "Christians better hope their god isn't as vengeful as they seem to think."

That's what comes to mind when I think of a dead JF.


Derek Smalls

I am fucking outraged! He was not found in the company of a male escort or an ugly hooker. He also missed the rapture, that asshole.


Malloy is back from vacation and is on fire tonight. I'm laughing so hard I"m crying . . . at the emails he's received regarding Fallwell.

Probably done now . . . but WOW!

Just think Teletubbies . . . :


Yes, Tinky Winky's long nightmare is at last over...


"Falwell worshiped money and influence and laughed all the way to the bank. Nothing about his behavior was remotely Christian"

I can think of a couple other "Reverends" who pick and choose causes in order to maximize "donations" to thier particular causes.


Jerry is laughing all the way to the big bank in the sky!


I wonder if God has introduced herself to him yet? Hopefully in the guise of a funky lesbian tattoo artist.
