No, the reason you lost here is because you're a fucking dumbass. I've never
been inspired to post here before but this is out of control.

There are obviously people who know and respect Falwell who will be reading this
list-serve, the fact that they have to be subject to the filth you put up here
earlier in the day is ridiculously insensitive.

Your argument that we should be happy when people who we disagree with
politically die is absurd:
a)the reason that we disagree with a political ideology is because we think that
ideology causes problems in the world
b)anyone who is at all politically motivated contributes in a way to the success
of the ideology they choose
c) by your own logic, we should be happy when anyone dies who is not aligned
with us in all political views, because from our perspective they are
contributing to global suffering

Pol Pot? Stalin? Are you fucking serious? Get some perspective. The only person
who should be compared to Hitler here is you, as I'm sure he was happy about
the deaths of many people who's religious views he felt were causing a
"takeover" in his country.

At least Falwell had the courage to apologize the day after he made those 9/11
comments, you should be mature enough to do the same.
