Falwell Dead at 73

The Rev. Jerry Falwell, televangelist and founder of the Moral Majority, has died. I grieve for the loss of a brother in Christ, but let's hope that a little bit of his perverted idea of Christianity dies with him.

Where to start with the man who founded the so-called Moral Majority? I think I'll just let his qoutes speak for themselves:

"I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we won't have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!"

"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.'" - remark on Sept. 12, 2001

"Gays are brute beasts, a vile and Satanic system that will one day be utterly annihilated and there will be a celebration in heaven."

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

"His message of peace and reconciliation under almost all circumstances is simply incompatible with Christian teachings as I interpret them. This 'turn the other cheek' business is all well and good but it's not what Jesus fought and died for. What we need to do is take the battle to the Muslim heathens and do unto them before they do unto us."

"This is probably as bad a day as the court has had on social issues since Roe v. Wade." - On the landmark U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Lawrence V. Texas in which the justices struck down the criminal prohibition of homosexual sodomy in Texas.

"You've got to kill the terrorists...blow them all away in the name of the Lord."

"The fact that Marc Cherry's a gay Republican means he should join the Democratic Party."

"Thank God for these gay demonstrators. If I didn't have them, I'd have to invent them. They give me all the publicity I need."

"Labor unions should study and read the Bible instead of asking for more money. When people get right with God, they are better workers."

"The ACLU is to Christians what the American Nazi party is to Jews."

"AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals. To oppose it would be like an Israelite jumping in the Red Sea to save one of Pharaoh's charioteers... AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals."

"He who stands against Israel stands against God."

"[Homosexuals] want to come into churches and disrupt church services and throw blood all around and try to give people AIDS and spit in the face of ministers."

"If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being."

"There is no separation of church and state."

"Tinky Winky of the Tellebubbies is gay."

Don't forget the bit about the AntiChrist being alive today, somewhere, as a Jewish male! That's my favorite.
