Jerry Laymon Falwell, Sr. 1933 - 2007

Rest in peace Mr. Falwell...
Just a couple of Jerry's views:
On the September 11th attacks:
"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.'"
Who can't help but love this guy?
"I shudder to think where the country would be right now if the religious right had not evolved,"
Unfortunately, we will always remember him as a founder and leader of America's anti-gay industry, someone who exacerbated the nation's appalling response to the onslaught of the AIDS' epidemic, someone who demonized and vilified us for political gain and someone who used religion to divide rather than unite our nation.
My heart goes out to the Falwell family, for their loss...
Over and "Out" from Toano, VA

Have a look at Towleroad today. He has a Cooper Anderson interview with Christopher Hitchens in which Hitchens rakes poor old Falwell over the perverbial coals.

If you can't say anything nice, don't say it at all, so I am keeping my mouth shut! LOL
