Jerry Falwell has made this world a better place...

...now that he has left it.

To paraphrase an old joke it is said that when someone has died you should only say good.

Jerry Falwell died today. Good.

Besides conning and stealing hundreds of millions of dollars from those who would turn to him for prayerful support, Falwell also promoted hatred of virtually every demographic that was non-male, non-White, non-heterosexual, or non-Christian (the right kind of Christian - not the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. type of Christian who believed that God loved all his children equally).

He supported segregation.
He supported apartheid.
He blamed everything from AIDS to the 9/11 attacks on non-males, non-Whites, non-heterosexuals, and non-Christians (or the wrong kind of Christians).

And he did it all in the name of God who he said committed these acts against humans out of anger and revenge.

If God is omnipotent, why would he be subject to primitive human emotions such as anger and revenge? If God is all-loving, why would he perform such acts of hatred against his children?

No, the real hatred, anger, and revenge came from within the heart and mind of Jerry Falwell - a criminal, bigoted, and evil man who may now have a lot of explaining to do to a certain supreme being.

At times like these it would be nice to believe that someone like Falwell is burning for eternity, but alas, it is not so. At least his followers are seeing the overwheliming joy that his death is bringing.
