Jerry Falwell, one nasty piece of work, is finally gone. This is a man who spent more than forty years spreading hatred and dissent in the guise of “Christian Love.” I can't say I'm overly depressed about his passing. Here are a few of the reasons we're glad he's gone:
"AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals"
"The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country”
"If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being”
"It appears that America's anti-Biblical feminist movement is at last dying, thank God, and is possibly being replaced by a Christ-centered men's movement which may become the foundation for a desperately needed national spiritual awakening”
