Rev. Jerry Falwell Has Passed On. Pandagon Loves It

From CNN:

Evangelist Jerry Falwell died Tuesday after he was found unresponsive in his office, an official at Liberty University told CNN.

Falwell, 73, was rushed to a Lynchburg, Virginia, hospital, where he was given CPR.

He will be missed. When all is said and done, he was a good man, who believed strongly in the Lord.

But, like all other issues, leave it to a Lefty to go berserk and be unpleasant, to put it mildly

And, if someone wants to believe I used my powers of evil to photoshop that, check out her site. Plus, since Marcotte has been known to erase her archives, here is a full size photo, which includes the address.

Michelle M. says it was wise of the HuffPo to close their comments. I’d say she is 100% correct.

Can’t check DUmmie World at the moment, but, I’m sure they are expressing their sympathies.

Hot Air is monitoring the nutballs.

Question: how are the Dems going turn Reverand Falwell’s death into either a fundraising opportunity, chance to smear Republicans, or both?

Bob Owens at Confederate Yankee has a similar thought, plus a good ‘bat roundup.

    That’s just terrible. They can be so hateful!

  2. Carl says:

    The liberals’ hate-filled comments on many, many blogs are disgusting and have really angered me. This proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that the “tolerance” liberals claim to have a monopoly on is a clearcut sham and their “love” is a perversion and delusion they have. They only love and have tolerance for themselves and their own kind. They practice an evil form of prejudice wrapped in the skin of hypocrisy. And for that they condemn themselves and their kind. I pity them.

  3. Why oh why do you subject your readers to this hateful garbage? Thanks – hehehe!

  4. Jaxebadt says:

    Wow, are you saying that same message on every single board you go to Carl? How innovative of you.

    / Counting how long it takes before I get called “hate-filled”

  5. Beth, Carl, Greta, yup, it is just par for the course.

    Jaxebadt, not everywhere, but few on the left are expressing any sort of sympathy for the surviving family and friends of the Reverend Falwell. The hate is more prominent then anything else.

  6. Jaxebadt says:

    Ok. I feel sad for his family and friends. I’m sure they loved him and all.
    What can I say, I guess I don’t have all the love for him that I’m supposed to. The guy insulted lots of people I know(And this is more than just policy; when someone makes the insulting comments about feminists and gay people as that man did, it’s personal). That will be how I remember him, and there’s not a whole lot anyone else can do about it.

  7. Jack Hamilton says:

    Some people hated Rev Fawell because he was true to his faith. He had programs for homosexuals that helped many. He treated homosexuals even the ones that reviled him with kindness and love. They just hate him because he told the truth that homosexuality was a sick and deviant life style.

  8. Carl says:

    Jaxebadt, what I posted here and also posted elsewhere is how I feel about the hate spewing forth from a huge number of liberals. And I am not talking about mild dislike for the man or even respectful disagreement but white-hot hatred in the most vile terms. And in many instances Dr. Falwell is being slandered in comment after comment. Your point that he insulted others: they were insulted by Falwell making his remarks based upon conservative Biblical principles. For example, Jerry Falwell stood firm that homosexuality is immoral. He based that on Biblical teachings. That insulted many homosexuals and many liberals. Well, boo-freakin’-hoo, that’s what the Bible teaches and Jerry Falwell believed in what the Bible taught and spread that Gospel to the world. Many people did not like being told that God abhored their lifestyle. So they rejected Falwell’s Biblical message and labeled him a hate-monger.

    I expressed the absolute disgust I feel towards the vitriol being spewed forth by the liberal community onto Jerry Falwell’s memory and felt no need to re-write it on the different blogs I upon which I left a comment.

  9. John Ryan says:

    Certainly Tinky Winky the tele tubbie who Jerry believed to be gay must have had some thoughts on this matter.

  10. maybe not so nice…

    Jerry Falwell U.S. Southern Baptist minister. Pioneering televangelist. Moral Majority. Religious Right. That Jerry. Has died. The obituaries will be interesting. Update: And so we begin. NYT’s Caucus blog:The Rev. Jerry Falwell’s status as one of A…

    Rev. Falwell is in heaven now and coaching the Cardinals and Saints. His death will rally more Christians to receive the Holy Spirit and in 2008, we will win another one for the Gipper! Catholic conservatives(not the phony ass liberal ones that go to Mass on Christmas and Easter only for photo ops like Pelosi, Biden & Ted Kennedy)
    will ally with the red state Bible Belters and keep the Oval Office in righteous hands for eight MORE years! Liberty Flames
    Forever. IN GOD WE TRUST! PS: Blackbeard – Don’t ya love it when Godless liberals try to talk about faith and religion? They’re out of their league! Amen!!

  12. highfloydelity says:

    Let us all remember some of Falwell’s better known quotes.

    “Christians, like slaves and soldiers, ask no questions”

    “AIDS is not just God’s punishment for homosexuals; it is God’s punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals”

    “Billy Graham is the chief servant of Satan in America”

    “The idea that religion and politics don’t mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country”

    “Textbooks are Soviet propaganda”

    “I think the Moslem faith teaches hate.”

    “The whole global warming thing is created to destroy America’s free enterprise system and our economic stability”

    “It is God’s planet – and he’s taking care of it. And I don’t believe that anything we do will raise or lower the temperature one point. ”

    “And so, therefore, I have no conscience problems at all and I’m going to buy a Suburban next time.”

    “If you’re not a born-again Christian, you’re a failure as a human being”

    Sounds like a WONDERFUL Christian American. [/sarcasm]

  13. Jack Hamilton says:

    What a bunch of lies words taken out of context. I just pray as the good Rev would that God will forgive these haters and they will change there life and he will soften there hearts. God still loves them even though they bear false witness against his servant.

  14. highfloydelity says:

    Jack,

    I pray that the good Lord will forgive Falwell for spewing all that hate from his mouth. Hopefully he asked for forgiveness before he passed.

    This quote may be my favorite:
    (speaking just after 9/11 on The 700 Club) “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.'”

    How can you blame 9/11 on anyone EXCEPT terrorists. Completely ridiculous.

  15. Carl says:

    floyd, that was a rather transparent attempt to smear Falwell by taking his comment out of context. His overall point was that all the groups he mentioned are liberal and have indeed weakened the country in many different ways and as such were properly named as part of who was responsible for allowing the United States to deteriorate as it has. For example, thanks to the ACLU and the Clinton Administration, many intelligent tactics including, but not limited to, having agents infiltrating terrorist organizations were ceased which added to the lack of preparation that may have prevented 9/11. Liberals did, in fact, help 9/11 in part by weakening U.S. abilities. So you only engage in the typical smear tactics currently being spewed forth by the liberal community. The sheer huge amount of hatred coming forth by the liberal community, yourself included, dwarfs anything conservative extremists have EVER done. Congratulations on showing once again that the liberals who claim ownership of tolerance and love truly have little to none at their very core.

  16. darthcrUSAderworldtour2007 says:

    The Moral Majority still continues to kick secular atheistic ass! Rev. Falwell is ‘still alive’ and his vision, along with his Crusading Christian Soldiers, will continue to take on all non-believers and enemies…foreign and domestic… so help US God! – The 31 Red States of America

  17. PDXbogger says:

    I feel, people should really know who he was in life, nothing but a hateful, BASTARD.

    “In my country, where I come from….” (trade mark phrase)

    We would say:
    You Sir are nothing but a “tub of goat crap, loved by the flies”

  18. Carl says:

    PDX, that may be your OPINION, but it is a complete misrepresentation of Dr. Jerry Falwell and typical of the hatred you claim Falwell had. Ironic that you call him hateful yet your remark is truly hateful. Thank you for illustrating hypocrisy so well.

  19. Jack Hamilton says:

    Why don”t you go back to your country and the flies.

  20. As sad as this is there’s less hate and vitriol on Pandagon’s site over this than there are in these comments. Mr. Fallwell may not have been the most polite in terms of what he said about people but at least he was telling people what he really thought. I agree that many of his comments were unwarranted and disrespectful. At the same time, however, I can recognize he did several things to help the poor, empoverished, underpriveledged, socially challenged, purple people eaters or anybody that asked him for help. He did what he believed to be right under God and I will couldn’t bring myself to condemn the man to hell for it.

  21. Jack Hamilton says:

    I can never remember an instance when Rev. Falwell was not polite. I do not believe anyone can point out a time when he was not polite. Even when he told homosexuals there actions were sin and God wanted them to change there life he was polite and told them God loved them and offered help. He was simply spreading Gods word as instructed by his faith the same faith as 45 million evangelicals believe or almost 50 million Catholics as well. Just as the Pope would say homosexual conduct was sin. But Jesus said he would be reviled for his name sake.

  22. Falwell, like all other people in the world, has said things that have offended people. But, as we can see, the liberals are being hoisted on their own petard. They say Falwell was a mean person, yet they have said even worse things, and with malice, both on this thread, and on other ones around the blogosphere. Falwell was a good man, who worked hard to help others, but was not afraid to speak his mind. Liberals claim the high road, but said road is paved with filth.

  23. Chuck Norris's balls says:

    The asshole’s still dead, and I’m still glad. Boo fuckin’ hoo, moonbats.

  24. Jack Hamilton says:

    Chuck Norris Bunghole
    You are one sick disgusting CS.

  25. highfloydelity says:

    Carl,
    Nice job on the blame game there. Why don’t these neocons take responsibility for their actions? It ALWAYS has to be someone or something else besides the truth.

  26. Carl says:

    floyd, you’re being disingenuous with your attempt to direct the focus AWAY from the point at hand. You made a claim about Jerry Falwell that is false and is a smear because you used an out-of-context quote. And your response about taking responsibility for one’s actions is laughable since you refuse to take responsibility for YOUR OWN actions here. Furthermore it shows quite clearly the hypocrisy on your part as well as the fact that you are unable and/or unwilling to discuss this in a civil and honest manner. Therefore you have lost the point and all credibility you may have owned upon entering into this topic.

  27. highfloydelity says:

    Ok, Carl, here’s your chance. Put those quotes IN context and show me how they were supposed to be taken. How have I not taken responsibility for my actions? What was I supposed to take responsibility for? I didn’t really make any claim about Falwell other than he loved to hate and I think that’s pretty easy to discern from his actions over the years.

  28. Carl says:

    Floyd, it’s not up to me…you made the initial claims therefore it is you that should provide the context if you truly are interested in truth and honesty. However as evidenced by your clear hatred for Jerry Falwell, I doubt very much if you are sincerely interested in either.

    How have you not taken responsibility for your actions? By continuing to make false accusations, slanderous remarks and fabricated claims against someone in such a disrespectful, hateful manner. You falsely accuse Jerry Falwell of hate when it is you that is guilty of hate. You refuse to take responsibility for your dishonesty here. You refuse to take responsibility for the vitriol that you have spewed forth here. You refuse to take responsibility for attempting to direct the focus away from the point at hand.

    Your accusation that Jerry Falwell “loved to hate” is simply slanderous and indicative of your own hatred. It has blinded you to the overwhelming evidence in the form of personal testimonials from those who knew him very closely that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jerry Falwell did NOT hate others even if he vehemently disagreed with them. Even Larry Flynt, someone who took great pride and joy in humiliating Dr. Falwell many years ago got to know him personally and developed a great friendship although they still disagreed on numerous issues. But apparently that slipped by you.

    It’s the haters like yourself that keep falsely accusing Jerry Falwell of hatred. It’s obvious you have no intention of being truthful about this and regarding Jerry Falwell. Your hatred has clouded your reasoning, logic, judgment and civility.

  29. Jack Hamilton says:

    Floyd you can not give an example where Falwell has proven he loves to hate. The only thing he said I believe that was wrong was his comments that America and it’s conduct had brought on the attacks of 9/11. He freely admitted he was wrong. we have all made mistakes but even that remark was taken out of context as to how he meant it in a bibical sense. But Floyd you have proven how you hate the man because you disagree with his views.

  30. highfloydelity says:

    Wow, talk about thin skinned. I didn’t say anything NEAR as bad as what YOU have called ME. I said he “loved to hate”, WOW, HOW SLANDEROUS! :rolleyes:

    I still don’t know how I didn’t “take responibility” for my comments. I wrote them, that should be enough.

    I haven’t seen this “overwhelming evidence in the form of personal testimonials” perhaps you could link to them? Or perhaps link a website that has those quotes in FULL context so that my opinion may be changed?

    And no, that didn’t “slip by me”, but thanks.

    —————————-

    Jack, that’s impossible to do. But you know that, that’s why you asked. Even if I gave you 1 million examples of ‘hate’, you would not be swayed.

  31. Carl says:

    floyd, you just don’t get it, do you? I have not attacked you, just exposed your dishonesty and hatred from your own comments. You still have not supported your claims nor will I expect you to do so since the facts remains they are false.

    As to those who have spoken of highly of Jerry Fallwell, they run the gamut of those who were in Christian ministries, business, politics, educators, conservatives, liberals, etc. People ranging from Franklin Graham to Larry Flynt became friends with Jerry Falwell and every one who knew him who have publicly made statements all agree that he truly cared about others whether they agreed with him or not. Jerry Falwell’s nature was to hate the sin but not the sinner which is exactly what is taught in the Bible. Jesse Jackson spoke well of him in memorium and said Falwell was a caring person (
    Larry Flynt said basically the same thing (http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-op-flynt20may20,0,2297247.story?coll=la-opinion-rightrail).
    Pointing out your dishonesty, hypocrisy and hatred is not a personal attack on you, just showing the truth and motiviation behind your personal attacks.
    “Over the years we became friends; sometimes we had polar opposite points of view. … I have many fond memories of him. He leaves a great legacy of service and a great university behind. He’s left his footprints in the sands of time.” – The Rev. Jesse Jackson.

    “Jerry Falwell was a close personal friend for many years. We did not always agree on everything, but I knew him to be a man of God. His accomplishments went beyond most clergy of his generation. Some of my grandchildren have attended and currently attend Liberty University. He leaves a gigantic vacuum in the evangelical world.” – Evangelist Billy Graham.

    “My mother always told me that no matter how much you dislike a person, when you meet them face to face you will find characteristics about them that you like. Jerry Falwell was a perfect example of that. I hated everything he stood for, but after meeting him in person, years after the trial, Jerry Falwell and I became good friends. … I always appreciated his sincerity even though I knew what he was selling and he knew what I was selling.” – Hustler magazine founder Larry Flynt.

    That’s just a sample of those who actually knew him well and none of them ever claimed anything remotely similar to your claim that he loved to hate. You’re simply wrong, floyd and you are so blinded to the truth that you refuse to see anything but your own distorted fabrications. The facts contradict your falsehoods but you now admit you will never accept anything else but your slanderous delusion so it is now clear that I am wasting my time with you. Enjoy your hatred. Embrace the bitterness. It will only consume you.

  32. Jack Hamilton says:

    Floyd it is impossible because your accusation is not true. The man was a minister of the gospel you hate him because he says and stands for his faith. You hate the fact that he says that homosexual conduct is sin. However he makes it known he loves the sinner and offers help. He is like all major faiths have the same tenet in regard to homosexual conduct. He also believed in prayer and Christians having the same political rights as anyone else. That is what you hate. You sir are the hater and I will do as the Rev. wpuld do and pray for you. I will also pray for my self because we are all sinners and fall short of Gods glory.

  33. sorry about the delays in the comments appearing folks. Akismet seems to be treating them as “old.”

  34. highfloydelity says:

    “I have not attacked you,”

    That’s rich. Let’s see, you have called me “disingenuous”, a “hater” (even though I never said I “hated” anyone), a hypocrite and a liar… They sound like attacks to me.

    Those quotes are all past tense and were made after he died. It’s not exactly in good form for a public figure to insult a dead man. But, yes, I concede there were people that liked him.. There are also people that worship Manson, Gein, Bundy, and Dahmer, would you defend THEIR actions?

    ——————-

    Let me ask a question. If I called Jesus a terrorist. Would you call that hate speech?

  35. Carl says:

    floyd, you took statements woefully out of context. You continued to make false statements about Jerry Falwell even after it was pointed out the original statements you made were false. Those make you disingenuous and a liar. You continue to attempt to smear the man and make insulting, uncivil and vitriolic comments about him. That makes you a hater. And since you have shown yourself a hater while falsely accusing someone else of hatred, that makes you a hypocrite. None of that constitutes personal attacks, but accurate assessment based upon your own comments. The fact that you continue to attempt to redirect the focus away from the point at hand only adds to your deceitfulness.

    In short, you lose. Now until you are able and willing to engage in intelligent discourse WITHOUT the ad hominem, red herrings and non sequiturs I am done with you. However I must thank you for proving your own dishonesty and hypocrisy by your own words. It makes it easier to identify you. Goodbye.

  36. Jack Hamilton says:

    Carl
    You said it perfectly I am with you. Cast not your pearls before swine. Great job I am finished as well.

  37. highfloydelity says:

    Carl, I didn’t take those statements out of context, they had no context to begin with. That’s why I asked you to provide the full context, I cannot find it, you did not provide it. I’m not sure what original statement were false? That he “loved to hate”? That’s my opinion, can you not see that? I’m not trying to smear the man, merely trying to figure out why a man so devoted to the Lord could say such things.

    I must have really hit a nerve.. geez.. You guys need to relax a little.
