LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) -- The Rev. Jerry Falwell, who founded the Moral Majority and built the religious right into a political force, died Tuesday shortly after being found unconscious in his office at Liberty University, a school executive said. He was 73.

Well. Thank goodness that's over.

  1. As a Christian, I can only feel that he brought disrepute upon Christianity. Whenever he had the chance to be decent, it seemed he did exactly the opposite.

    A thoroughly unpleasant man.

  5. Tracey, my cat Lulu wanted me to thank you for commenting on her post last week. That was very kind of you.

    Jerry Falwell did NOT comment on her post. And he was still alive at the time! Very rude indeed.

  6. Dan cracks me up. And don't piss off Lulu!

    I first wondered what the devil asked him when he got there, but I felt bad for thinking that. So I'm going to agree with MD, "A thoroughly unpleasant man"

  7. I'm with Christopher Hitchens. An excerpt from his interview with Anderson Cooper on Falwell's death:

    "The empty life of this ugly little charlatan proves only one thing, that you can get away with the most extraordinary offenses to morality and to truth in this country if you will just get yourself called reverend. Who would, even at your network, have invited on such a little toad to tell us that the attacks of September 11 were the result of our sinfulness and were God's punishment if they hadn't got some kind of clerical qualification? People like that should be out in the street, shouting and hollering with a cardboard sign and selling pencils from a cup."
