Radical Cleric Jerry Falwell Dead

While the mainstream media spends the next 24-48 hours lionizing the life of radical cleric Jerry Falwell, let us revisit some of Falwell's remarks and comments over the years:

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." -- Rev. Jerry Falwell, blaming civil libertarians for the terrorist attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, to which Rev. Pat Robertson again agreed.

"The idea of separation of Church and State was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country."

"I listen to feminists and all these radical gals - most of them are failures. They've blown it. Some of them have been married, but they married some Casper Milquetoast who asked permission to go to the bathroom. These women just need a man in the house. That's all they need. Most of the feminists need a man to tell them what time of day it is and to lead them home. And they blew it and they're mad at all men. Feminists hate men. They're sexist. They hate men - that's their problem."

"If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being."

"I do question the sincerity and non-violent intentions of some civil rights leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mr. James Farmer, and others, who are known to have left-wing associations."

"I think Mohammed was a terrorist. I read enough of the history of his life. He was a violent man, a man of war. Jesus set the example for love, as did Moses. And I think Mohammed set an opposite example."

"The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country."

"I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we won't have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!"

"Modern U.S. Supreme Courts have raped the Constitution and raped the Christian faith and raped the churches by misinterpreting what the founders had in mind in the First Amendment of the Constitution... [W]e must fight against those radical minorities who are trying to remove God from our textbooks, Christ from our nation. We must never allow our children to forget that this is a Christian nation. We must take back what is rightfully ours."

Gee, it's a shame Falwell won't be around to add more of the above to the political, religious and social discourse of the country.

Oh, well.

Guess I'll have some iced tea and put on a couple of Clash cds until this thing blows over.

Scary stuff.

Don't know who Clash is, but it's got to be better than listening to all the Falwell farewells over the next few days.
Jerry Falwell is all the proof anyone would need that God doesn't exist, or if He does, really doesn't give a rat's ass about what goes on here.
The Clash were a 70's punk band ("London Calling"), abi.

kicksiron, there's a line in a Woody Allen movie in which a character says "If Jesus ever came back to earth and saw what was going on in his name, he'd never stop throwing up."

That covers it for me and Falwell.
Who's gonna warn us about gay Teletubbies now? And what will happen to McCain if he can't suck up to Falwell anymore?
