Jerry Falwell dies at 73
see "Television evangelist Falwell dies at 73" (AP via Houston Chronicle, 5/15/07)
Jerry Falwell has been declared dead after being found unconscious and unresponsive in his office at Liberty College in Virgina.
While I don't cheer at peoples' deaths (with rare exceptions that tend to be in the Middle East), we're probably better off without the anti-semitic Falwell who was to Christians (in my view as a non-Christian) what Jesse Jackson is to Blacks: A self-serving promoter of anti-intellectual tripe who made the people he claimed to represent look bad.
So, Mr. Falwell, I can't say I'm sad to see you go. I wonder, if you're right about the existence of heaven, hell, etc., how you will be judged. For your sake, I hope it's better than what I think of you.
