Remembering Falwell

Posted by: on May 15, 2007 | No Comments

I don’t take any particular joy in his death, but I do know if I’d met him yesterday, he’d of deemed me immoral and doomed me to hell. So, well, fuck him.

You can Google around as well as I can to find out what an awful human being he was, but here’s a few in memorandum.

“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!” (you didn’t!)

“AIDS is not just God’s punishment for homosexuals; it is God’s punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals.”

“I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians … the A.C.L.U., 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.'”

(in reference to 9-11) “God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve.”

“Textbooks are Soviet propaganda.”

“The whole global warming thing is created to destroy America’s free enterprise system and our economic stability.”

“Christians, like slaves and soldiers, ask no questions.”

Oh, and let’s not forget his crusade against Tinky-Winky, the purple Teletubby turning your children teh gay.

[ UPDATE: Heh. There’s a postmortem protest at 18th & Castro tonight. Hey, boys — shouldn’t you be saving this for Phelps? ]
