Jerry Falwell dead

Who did Jerrl Falwell blame for 9/11?

Quote:
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.
good riddance...

Re: Jerry Falwell dead

I must admit that Im rather perplexed at the comments here. I presumed that if you were so outraged by the level of disrespect this man gave to some people you would be outraged by disrespect to any human being.

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.

Re: Jerry Falwell dead

I am mixed on the emotions....

I do not wish death on anybody... but we all will die someday....

But, I did hate his hateful words and how he would smile like he was a saint even when he was directing hate at others... and he had a flock of sheep who have the same thoughts....

Sorry to say that I will not miss him a bit...

Same here. I didn't agree with much the man stood for but he doesn't deserve those remarks. Remarks like those, in fact, remind me of just how intolerant some people can be while claiming the same for those with whom they disagree. Sad, that.

He deserved no respect.

I think after the sun goes down, I shall piss on the garden and pretend it's his grave.

I wish that there were some way to express greater disrespect.

Re: Jerry Falwell dead

Well, I think most of the remarks here have been pretty tame compared to what he said in his lifetime. Saying good riddance to a person who spreads a message of hate is hardly Imus material. Good riddance to him, Klan Members, Slobidan Milosivech (sp?) Idi Amin, Hitler....

I hope that he passed over safely and can deal with being reincarnated as a gay Haitian liberal.
