...actually, I don't believe in hell. The headline is simply my way of saying “good riddance to bad rubbish.”
Falwell, like so many others throughout the history of Christianity, used that religion to enrich and empower himself, and as a vehicle to propagate his hatred and bigotry. To him, Christianity was a force to be used to crush opposition and dominate his victims. It was a strict code of control he wanted to force on the rest of us.
I’m not a Christian, but if I was, I would say, “Thank God Jerry Falwell is finally dead.”
