......just got the news about the passing of Falwell. I dont like to revel
in the death of anyone. I am sure his family and his university is
grieving. My regrets and condolences to their pain.
Jerry wasnt a Nazi.....he was just an ignorant bigot with a very public
platform. Ellis may have gone too far......However, it is impossible to
ignore the fairly terrible things he advocated. I know people who have died
of AIDS, I have gay friends and family members who suffer from the bigotry
and ignorance he so unapologetically espoused.
He supported debate. Hurrah! However, it was for a political end that he
felt debate helped him to achieve. His Q and A sessions were a lovely
example of non-sequiters and smoke and mirrors camouflaged as open
Religious zealots that mix politics with god are dangerous, whether its
Osama, Jerry Falwell, Ahmadenijad or George Bush. At the end of the day I
feel sorry for his loved ones, but I wont miss him or his bigotry one iota.
I cant remember him ever apologizing to my family or loved ones....dont know
why anyone else ought to be apologetic for feeling the same way I do.
