Toodles, Jerry!

The Reverend Jerry Falwell (1933-2007), founder of the Thomas Road Baptist Church and Liberty University, passed away yesterday in Lynchburg, Virginia. Reverend Falwell dies without ever having been named or nominated for McBone's Hero of the Week Award. It is safe to say that his death will not garner any postmortem recognition from the committee.
Some of the most beloved people in my life are gay. How could I possibly be sad that this intolerant boob is pushing up daisies? Can't say I appreciate his support of Bush, either. Or of Bush Senior. Or of Reagan. Unfortunately, Falwell's children are already positioned to continue spreading his anti-gay, anti-semite, anti-muslim brand of gospel.

nb
A vintage exchange between Falwell and friend Pat Robertson, broadcast shortly after 9/11. Enjoy!
