Perhaps, I was wrong. There might be a god after all. If so, I have a feeling DOCTOR Falwell is getting a little toasty down where the sun don't shine. Perhaps, he can open a dialogue with the 9/11 murderers. In his delusion, he would find himself with an eternity to get to know them intimately. All those honorary doctoral degrees were wasted on him. They simply illustrated putting lipstick and pearls on a pig doesn't make it any less a pig.

And it's just the homphobic comments like yours that spewed out of Falwell's mouth that makes us and practically everyone i heard on the radio and TV say they are happy he is gone. I will not say I'm happy he is dead because I won't stupe to the low levels he did in his life, but I am happy his hateful voice is finally silenced.

This is Walter Cronkite. It is 3:48 pm EST, and Jerry Falwell is still not yet alive. He may be undead, but we won't know that till the sun sets.

Combat engineers are standing by with wooden stakes, in case the old televangelist really has been bitten by a Nosferatu.

Now I wonder what is going on with him right now. I figure if he's in hell he's having sex with men because he doesn't want to. If he's in heaven, he's having sex with men because he wants to. Of course he could be in line for reincarnation to. I think according to his life-value he would come back as a rabbit turd.

I know, it's terrible to think that they might grow up to be like grandad. Oh, and jack, what about his lack of being a human being? Go back under your bible, and shut your pie hole.

And I guess falwell gave a damn about the people he was hurting with the hateful things he said about gays lesbians who are also fathers, mothers, sons, daughters etc...who is the hypocrite now. How can you blame people for disliking a man who spread hate for those he didn't understand and alienated.

i would have found it ironically amusing had he died in a hurricane...or a terrorist attack...or a tornado, even...then we could have said "see, God doesn't like sinners, look what happened"

Rembrance-courtesy of John Aravosis' Americablog:

In the 1980s Jerry Falwell was an outspoken supporter of the Apartheid regime in South Africa. When president PW Botha was elected President by the White South African minority, Reverend Falwell went to South Africa and made statements supporting the government there and urging American Christians to buy Krugerrands, a coin issued by the South African Government[17]. He drew the ire of many when he called Nobel Peace Prize winner and Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu a phony. He later apologized for that remark and claimed that he had misspoken
The anti-Christ will be a Jew
Falwell has asserted that when The Antichrist ("The Beast") comes, he "must be, of necessity, a Jewish male."
Gays, prolifers and feminists caused September 11
After the September 11, 2001, attacks Falwell said on the 700 Club, "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.'" (a sentiment with which Robertson concurred).
AIDS is the wrath of God
"AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals."
The National Organization for Women (NOW) is the National Organization of Witches.

God doesn't listen to Jews
After Southern Baptist Convention President Bailey Smith tells a Dallas Religious Right gathering that "God Almighty does not hear the prayer of a Jew," Falwell gives a similar view. "I do not believe," he told reporters, "that God answers the prayer of any unredeemed Gentile or Jew."
And here are a few more from Americans United for the Separation of Church and State:
February 1993: The Internal Revenue Service determines that funds from Falwell's Old Time Gospel Hour program were illegally funneled to a political action committee. The IRS forced Falwell to pay $50,000 and retroactively revoked the Old Time Gospel Hour's tax-exempt status for 1986-87.

March 1993: Despite his promise to Jewish groups to stop referring to America as a "Christian nation," Falwell gives a sermon saying, "We must never allow our children to forget that this is a Christian nation. We must take back what is rightfully ours."

1994-1995: Falwell is criticized for using his "Old Time Gospel Hour" to hawk a scurrilous video called "The Clinton Chronicles" that makes a number of unsubstantiated charges against President Bill Clinton--among them that he is a drug addict and that he arranged the murders of political enemies in Arkansas. Despite claims he had no ties to the project, evidence surfaced that Falwell helped bankroll the venture with $200,000 paid to a group called Citizens for Honest Government (CHG). CHG's Pat Matrisciana later admitted that Falwell and he staged an infomercial interview promoting the video in which a silhouetted reporter said his life was in danger for investigating Clinton.(Matrisciana himself posed as the reporter.) "That was Jerry's idea to do that," Matrisciana recalled. "He thought that would be dramatic."

November 1997: Falwell accepts $3.5 million from a front group representing controversial Korean evangelist Sun Myung Moon to ease Liberty University's financial woes. The donation, and several Falwell appearances at Moon conferences, raised eyebrows because Moon claims to be the messiah sent to complete the failed mission of Jesus Christ, a doctrine sharply at odds with Falwell's fundamentalist Christian theology.(In 1978, before the Moon money started flowing, Falwell told Esquire magazine, "Reverend Sun Myung Moon is like the plague: he exploits boys and girls, and he should be exported.")
Gays are "moral perverts."

"God hates homosexuality" (I saw this video of Falwell myself.)

And who can forget our favorite Falwellism: Tinky Winky is gay.

It is 4:13 pm EST, and the crowds are getting restless. Some claim to have seen the finger of god in the sky, coming to resurrect Jerry, but others are running in panic! Is it? Could it be?

Yes, it is a tornado!

I pray for his family. Even the worst people have someone who loves them. But he was not a good man nor a good Christian. He committed the mortal sin of mistaking his limited concept of God for who God really is.
Ironically, Jerry now knows the truth of God's extravagant and all-inclusive love for EVERYONE.
And that is probably worse for him than any hell he could have possibly imagined.
