For those of us who are politically informed, and therefore Republican.

"Televangelist, Christian leader, Jerry Falwell dies"

No doubt the death of Falwell, a prominent Christian, has left the Left licking their collective chops. NPR's glowing, non-biased encomium is awe-inspiring. They could've just saved us all the time and summed it up as, "This son of a bootlegger and grandson of an atheist, the man responsible for giving rise to godbags in politics and breaking down the sacred separation of church and state, died today, leaving behind a legacy gleaned mostly from begging.

On the plus side, though, he seemed to believe his own presumptuous bullshit. So, you know, you gotta give him that much."

Jerry Falwell built his ministry from nothing and opened a private university and law center. His arguments came from a strict adherence, though not "fundamentalist" as NPR describes it, to Christianity's principles and teachings. It seems that he and his family deserve more than the publicly funded liberal bilge churned out by NPR.

Tax dollars at work.

I'm sure the Bible has something about feminism in it...

One less religious fundamentalist on the planet? I feel like throwing a party.

Wasn't it nice when he claimed that 9/11 was a punishment by 'god' against America? Ironic that it was in fact perpetrated by other dimwitted theocratic absolutists who, apart from a fondness for suicide missions, wouldn't find much with Falwell to disagree about, other than which of the non-existent entities they worship is the better.

Hitchens put it best: "It's a shame there isn't a hell for him to go to."
