I have read through all of the above comments. A part of me wants to say one thing and another part of me wants to say something else. I never liked Jerry Falwell's version of Christianity. In fact at one point in the early 80's as a new believer I prayed earnestly that God would spare me from becoming like that. I believe he answered my prayers. I in no way believe I'm a better person than Jerry Falwell but my faith is completely different than his was...that's all.

My mistake; sorry. I *knew* it was one of those of similar ilk.

...And so are the eulogies for those with no humility. You reap what you sow.

I rarely speak ill of the dead, but this is one man I feel the world could have done without. The only sympathy I feel here is for his family's loss of a loved one.

Good riddance.

*awaits the flames of wrath*

I ought not to reveal my true feelings about this man. Suffice it to say that I have very little respect for intolerance and ultra-conservatism, both I which I feel he embodied.

i think he will come to embody the politicization of religion. not the religious in politics, but voting as a form of religious duty.

and for that, we are all the worse.

Why must the existence of God automatically gain Falwell entrance into heaven?

Twisting the beliefs of Christianity into a weapon of pure hate. What a great man. How he convinced so many I'll never understand, because you'd have to assume that a large % of them (a) owned Bibles, and (b) could read.
