He loved his country. He loved Jesus. He believed in the sanctity of human life. He gave political voice to others who felt likewise.

Rest in Peace.

Hey, what are the bets Bono will write a commemoratory eulogy?

Or maybe deliver the graveside oration?

I feel neither sorrow nor happiness at this news...in fact I don't really feel a thing. I don't think it's quite sunk in yet...the man had so much power here in Virginia.

May God have mercy on his soul.

We were just talking about this in the newsroom.

I disagreed with a lot of things he did and said, but, of course, I feel sorry for his family and friends during this time.

It's definitely shocking no matter what you think of the man.

If this happens, it will lower my opinion of Bono considerably.

let this man speak for himself

remember him for what he was

Quote:
JERRY FALWELL: And I agree totally with you that the Lord has protected us so wonderfully these 225 years. And since 1812, this is the first time that we've been attacked on our soil and by far the worst results. And I fear, as Donald Rumsfeld, the Secretary of Defense, said yesterday, that this is only the beginning. And with biological warfare available to these monsters -- the Husseins, the Bin Ladens, the Arafats -- what we saw on Tuesday, as terrible as it is, could be miniscule if, in fact -- if, in fact -- God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve.

PAT ROBERTSON: Jerry, that's my feeling. I think we've just seen the antechamber to terror. We haven't even begun to see what they can do to the major population.

JERRY FALWELL: The ACLU's got to take a lot of blame for this.

PAT ROBERTSON: Well yes.

JERRY FALWELL: And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. 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."

PAT ROBERTSON: Well, I totally concur, and the problem is we have adopted that agenda at the highest levels of our government. And so we're responsible as a free society for what the top people do. And, the top people, of course, is the court system..

JERRY FALWELL: Pat, did you notice yesterday the ACLU and all the Christ-haters, People For the American Way, NOW, etc. were totally disregarded by the Democrats and the Republicans in both houses of Congress as they went out on the steps and called out on to God in prayer and sang "God Bless America" and said "let the ACLU be hanged". In other words, when the nation is on its knees, the only normal and natural and spiritual thing to do is what we ought to be doing all the time - calling upon God. ~~~

Falwell and Robertson--two peas in a pod.

Did you know . . . that Jerry Falwell, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Mickey Gilley are all cousins?

I have nothing to say about the man....no feeling about his passing except hope his family can find peace at their difficult time.

He was loved by his family, he was a dad, a husband, a grandfather. That we have to remember.

Not a chance. Remember that line from "Rattle and Hum" about a man on the Old Time Gospel Hour stealing money and then "the God I believe in isn't short of cash"?

The responses here look similar to the responses in the RI.P Saddam Hussein thread.

Too much power, wouldn't you say?

We didn't like either one of them.

True of Jimmy Swaggart, not Falwell.
