Re: Jerry Falwell dead

There is a difference between *wishing* someone dead, and not being sad they are gone. I didn't wish him dead...he died, I am not sad about it. The world is a better place because of it.

Being happy someone has died and calling it good news seems extrememly disrespectful.

While I admit that he was outrageous and probably wrong on many things he said I do not think some of the attitudes displayed helps your arguments/this discussion at all.
There are some really dark hearted folks here, it's pretty upsetting to see people's reaction to an event which certainly is causing his family great pain.

I agree. It's both sad and funny to listen to folks act out in the same manner that they accuse Falwell of acting. But then again, hypocrites seldom recognize themselves in the mirror. That's just a fact of life.

Re: Jerry Falwell dead

What is hypocritical about thinking the deceased is a worthless hating creep?

I thought the same when he was alive.

Tell me of his positive qualities.

How can they feel great pain when they know he has been called to heaven?

hey! we don't want him. though i used to half-joke about a rather bigoted ex-acquaintance of mine that he (the aquaintance) was going to come back as an etheopian jewish lesbian.

since when is it hypocritical to cast out the first stone thrower.

even if i am normally a man of peace just going about my day and someone sucker punches me, when i gather myself, do not be surprised if i take measure to prevent myself from being hit again. does it make me a hypocrite to make safe my peace or rather a fool to let myself be hit a second time.

some mistake politeness for weakness, others mistake initial trust for perpetual loyalty, others mistake justified reaction for hypocrisy.

after you have spent a lifetime spewing bile, do not be perplexed when your obit is vile. how many families has this guy destroyed? how many young gay teens have been driven out of their families and into the streets? how many have committed suicide because of the likes of this s.o.b.?

this is not hypocracy talking. this is the sound of disgust. how convenient to try to dismiss an argument by mislabeling it. what the people here are expressing is not hypocritical at all. it is simply critique.

as to the just reward for the likes of a dead falwell, i would wish only that if there is an afterlife that falwell's eyes & heart be opened to all the pain in this world that he helped cause. as to what he is able to do with that is none of my concern.

What does his mother have to do with this? I think we have all learned something about you. You attack his mother as a bitch, yet I'm sure you've never even met her! Perhaps we should direct the discussion at your recently dead mother? Bitch? Yes, bitch indeed!

Re: Jerry Falwell dead

You right wing frauds make me laugh. If it was Bin Laden who died you'd be falling all over yourselves frothing at the mouth and hurling the same kind of invective.

Would Bin Laden deserve respect? Hell, no. And neither does Falwell.
The world is just better off without some people.

You hypocrites.

ubet, i have never profited from my opinions nor made myself a public character open to that kind of critique. unless you are a complete idiot, you know very well that my use of the term s.o.b. had nothing at all to do with falwell's mother. your comment about my mom is nothing less than incredibly crass.

I made no comment about your mother. I asked why you brought Falwells's mother into the discussion and how you would like your mother spoken of in the same sense. I am deeply against bringing family into these types of discussions and am deeply disappointed you chose to do so.

I think you've got the point. Let's leave family out of these discussions.

as i already said, the s.o.b. term had nothing to do with his mother. so obviously you were just and continue attacking for your own no good reasons. why don't you just take your point and shove it up your, well, lets face it. nothing in god's good universe is thin enough to fit there.
