Jerry Falwell Burns in Hell

...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.”

I am a Christian, and although I haven't said that out loud, I've thought it...too bad God knows my thoughts as well.

If he knew mine, he'd get a look on his face that said, "uh-oh... he's on to me..."

When I first heard the news, I couldn't help but sing "Ding Dong the witch is dead" over and over in my head.

There's a brilliant post, by one of my real life friends here: http://onlinewithzoe.typepad.com/online_with_zoe/2007/05/now_jerry_knows.html

Falwell, unfortunately, left a lot of tenticals of hate to grow independently in his "flock," so don't be surprised if the hate doesn't disappear with the man.

I'm not going to miss him. I breathed a sigh of relief when I found out he was dead.
