a special place in hell

If there is a god and said deity is worthy of worship, then there's a special place in hell reserved for this guy: Jerry Falwell dead at 73.

I take no joy in the death of human beings, but I must admit that I'm not likely to lose a great deal of sleep over this particular one.

"I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, 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.'" -- Falwell, two days after Sept. 11

"AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals."

"AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals."

"I am such a strong admirer and supporter of George W. Bush that if he suggested eliminating the income tax or doubling it, I would vote yes on first blush."an

And my personal favorite:

"If I were doing something that the Bible condemns, I have two choices. I can straighten up my act, or I can somehow distort and twist and change the meaning of the Bible."

TMZ's article says it all.

A special place in hell? Christopher Hitchens would agree in this video.

I think I like this Hitchens guy.

This makes it a good week. Now throw in Robertson, Rove and Cheney, and we'd have a fantastic week.

I wonder - if America's "dissolute" society caused the 9/11 raids, what caused Jerry Falwell's demise? just askin'.
