Televangelist Falwell dead at 73

One of proponents of the religious right, Jerry Fallwell, died today.

He spoke against everything I stand for.

Not sure what to think. I have never hated him, but feared what he stood for. I will hope his soul finds peace, and wish his family some respite.

As more of these radicals pass away, including ones I know personally, I will have to think about how I feel.

Wow... I don't know what to say. Part of me is glad he's off to his personal afterlife. Part of me is worried of who will follow in his place.

...And God will look down unto him and say... "Dude, you are seriously messed up. Fighting a crusade against gay Teletubbies??" :lol: Sorry, I just can't feel too badly that he died, especially since from what I've seen, people have been glorifying a man whom everyone previously knew as an overly-religious nutjob. It always astounds me how when someone dies, regardless of what kind of person they were when they were alive, once they're dead they're the most wonderful person in the world. Case in point: Anna Nicole Smith. :roll:

Ooooh, so THAT's who Jerry Falwell is. I'd heard his "pagans and gays and abortionists are responsible for 9/11" thing but I wasn't sure who he was exactly.

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you the brilliant Roy Zimmerman and his song "Jerry Falwell's God".

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyE5wjc4XOw

I discovered Roy Zimmerman on youtube a while ago. He's hilarious. He has songs on there like "Creation Science 101" and "That is the War on Terror". Brilliant satire. Try to ignore the evolution vs. creationism and right wing vs. left wing battles that occur in the comments. (Or join in, if you like ;) )

American Civil Liberties Union.

The ACLU defends Americans' constitutional right to exercise religious beliefs or no religion at all, free from government promotion of faith-based doctrine or activities.

Awesome video :-D I shall have some more listening to do when I got some time, I like this guy lol.

As for Jerry ... I guess being the sorta recluse person I can be, I don't really tend to go out and listen or read about fanatics much, so I didn't know who he was, or what he did. But, I certainly hope the poor soul found what it was looking for in this life, so it can peacefully move onto the next.

Sorry for the double post ... But I saw this on another message board I visit, and thought I'd best share ... It would appear to me that he was not exactly well liked by alot of people.

Bill Maher's farwell to Jerry Falwell ...
