FAREWELL FALWELL

.
On the day of his funeral, a tribute to Jerry Falwell; in his own words.....



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

"The ACLU is to Christians what the American Nazi party is to Jews."

"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!"

"AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals. To oppose it would be like an Israelite jumping in the Red Sea to save one of Pharaoh's charioteers ... AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals."

"Nothing will motivate conservative evangelical Christians to vote Republican in the 2008 presidential election more than a Democratic nominee named Hillary Rodham Clinton - not even a run by the devil himself ... I certainly hope that Hillary is the candidate. She has $300 million so far. But I hope she's the candidate. Because nothing will energize my [constituency] like Hillary Clinton. If Lucifer ran, he wouldn't." --at a "Values Voter Summit"

"Grown men should not be having sex with prostitutes unless they are married to them."

"Billy Graham is the chief servant of Satan in America."


"He is purple — the gay-pride color, and his antenna is shaped like a triangle — the gay pride symbol." –from a "Parents Alert" issued in Jerry Falwell's National Liberty Journal, warning that "Tinky Winky," a character on the popular PBS children's show, "Teletubbies," may be gay.

"You've got to kill the terrorists before the killing stops. And I'm for the president to chase them all over the world. If it takes 10 years, blow them all away in the name of the Lord."

"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.'" --on the 9/11 attacks.

... «Another one bites the dust»... If there's a final judgement at all, I can see some people who will have a lot to account for...
Do you really think he will «fare well» to the beyond?... :-)

How long do you think it will be before his followers blame us for his death?

When I was younger, my family and I used to sing a song where the chorus was "Laugh, Kukaburro, Laugh Kukaburro, gay your life must be!" Whenever I think about Tinky-Winky dancing, that's the tune I hear in my head. Dance, Tinky-Winky, Dance Tinky-Winky..."

And I'm jumping over to Ric's to see what your tag is. There really is no way to escape now. Mwahhhh-haaaa-haaa!

We can only hope that the not so good Reverend Farwell get what he deserves...
There are a few more to add to the list but they are still with us...so we will have to be patient and smile when there time comes.
