Death…

What’s the proper way to comment on Jerry Falwell’s death? I don’t typically wish death upon anyone and Falwell isn’t an exception. Do you say, I feel sorry for his family, but the man was an asshole? Seems weird. He was a negative influence on this country, so should I say we’re better off without him? Seems inappropriate.

Beats me.

UPDATE: I’m not even going to try to figure out if this is appropriate.

    People garner respect simply by dying? As our favorite drunkard Christopher Hitchens said, “We have been rid of a dangerous demagogue.”

    I think both of you have said just what you really wanted to say without out having the guts to admit your probably one of those people that support homosexuality not “gay”, planned parenthood,pornagraphy ie:perversion. It’s called, calling right wrong and wrong right. Jerry Farwell was teaching what the word of GOD says and nothing more. He garnered respect simply because of the way he lived, not because he died.

    Actually, if you look at the past posts of this blog you’ll find that I openly support the “perversion” of which you speak.

    Falwell did not teach the word of God, he taught a narrow-minded, hateful, and bigoted view of a religion started by people who knew far less about the world around them than we do today. He is not to be respected, dead or otherwise.

    “Jerry Farwell was teaching what the word of GOD says and nothing more.”

    “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.'” – Falwell, on The 700 Club.

    And here I was, thinkin’ deities were supposed to be “all-knowing”, and not blithering idiots using logic that even a nine year old would find laughable.
