architect of hate dies

Jerry Falwell died today of a heart attack . I am ambivalent. I would rather a man come to wisdom than die.  Falwell missed out on wisdom. Instead he led an attack on our liberties. Along the way saying some of the most hateful things I have ever heard.

Falwell blamed the 911 attacks on gays and lesbians, saying "you helped this happen."

He claimed one of the cartoon Teletubbies was role modeling the gay lifestyle, damaging to the moral lives of children.

I put all the blame legally and morally on the actions of the terrorist, [but America's] secular and anti-Christian environment left us open to our Lord's [decision] not to protect. When a nation deserts God and expels God from the culture ... the result is not good.

AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals.

We're fighting against humanism, we're fighting against liberalism ... we are fighting against all the systems of Satan that are destroying our nation today ... our battle is with Satan himself.

I do not believe the homosexual community deserves minority status. One's misbehavior does not qualify him or her for minority status. Blacks, Hispanics, women, etc., are God-ordained minorities who do indeed deserve minority status.

I do question the sincerity and non-violent intentions of some civil rights leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mr. James Farmer, and others, who are known to have left-wing associations.

As a nation we suffer no loss at the passing of the intolerant voice of Jerry Falwell. We owe him no honors, no specials awards,  no recognition or moments of silence. The man's life can be summed up as inflecting more evil than good. Now he is dead. End of story.

Well, it seems a lot of bloggers are posting about Fallwell. I didn't know some of the hate he was spewing but I do now, just by reading blogs. Where in the hell did common sense go? Now, if we all could get to know John Hagee better...now that's another fanatic.

I agree. His university, however, will ensure that he wont be forgotten for a long time to come. The only immortality I believe in is legacy. Falwell accomplished that with his university, which ensures that there is an environment to nurture the message he put forth for years to come.

True enough on the legacy. The other legacy is the hate and warped reasoning that will also bear testament to his twisted vision for some time to come. Odd way to go though, given the arch view he had of himself. The first reports said he was found unconscious in the office - no mention of a heart attack. How the mighty are fallen.
