There is a very, very short list of people I'd say this regarding: May he rot, and good riddance.

Now, if only Phelps would keel over...I know he's got his whole family/cult around him, but I'd bet he's the only one with enough crazy-juice to keep the whole thing going.

Jerry Falwell dead?

Surely not! Just "called home!"

AbE: ``I shudder to think where the country would be right now if the religious right had not evolved,'' {Falwell} said when he stepped down as Moral Majority president in 1987.

That's why he was called home. A closet Evilutionist.

A caveat
I am by no means a Jerry Falwell fan by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, something has always struck me as odd about him. However, I've got to say that I'm appalled by how the responders to this post thus far are gleefully cheering his death. So I offer this admonishment: You probably shouldn't do it. Its not just tacky, but its also disrespectful and childish.

If any of you are Hindu or Buddhist, then you really shouldn't do it. That's bad Karma.

Re: A caveat
Disrespectful? I know people who died of AIDS almost or completely unmourned by their families because those Christian families had been influenced by this man's hatred. Who can possibly ever know how many gay teenagers have committed suicide because they come from families that follow this bastard or people like him?

I don't give a shit if it's disrespectful. I say "fuck Jerry Falwell". Today is a day to rejoice!

Tacky? That's me all over.

Childish? Only when I'm awake.

Disrespectful? It's more respect than he deserves.

Hindu, Buddhist? To quote Python: "I've never been one of those."

Of course you do, now that he's not here to condemn you for your necrophilia.

Considering he was a hard ass and a blowhard the choice should be clear methinks.

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Source

You apparently took into account the topic and decided to merely chide us, rather than a more draconian response.

I appreciate that.

Point taken.

Re: A caveat

I don't give if a shit if its disrespectful. I say "fuck Jerry Falwell." Today is a day to rejoice!

Wow! Strong words....

So let me make sure I'm accurate here. You say the man is "hateful," and yet you spew hate from your sewer and rejoice over his death. What makes you holier than thou in this case?

So, not only are you a hatemongerer, but you're also a raging hypocrite for calling him one too.

You are basically trying to justify your own hatred by saying that he is/was hateful too, and therefor, that somehow gives you in the right to dancing on his grave.

Falwell is going to stand before his Maker and give testimony to his Judge. More has been entrusted to the Falwell's of the world, which means more is expected of them. Lets go ahead and let God be God. He makes a better judge than we do.
