Jerry Falwell is dead

The Rev. Jerry Falwell has died after being found unconscious in his office by an aide. Despite his flaws and intemperance and sometimes zealotry, Falwell seemed to me to have service of God and the best interests of the United States at heart in what he did, including the founding of the Moral Majority. And for that he was soundly mocked and derided by the cultural elites of our nation.

I suppose there was a lot we would not have in common, but I suspect in the essentials we did. Now that he sees the full vision of God’s glory and the Truth he beheld only partially on this earth, may he receive God’s mercy in full measure as he faces his judgment.

  • And so may we all, especially those who will be dancing and rejoicing in the streets over his death.
    I think he was actually a big and good-hearted man.  What made him hated by many is because he told the truth unashamedly, and because those who hated him know in their hearts that they should be ashamed of their sins but are not. To cover up for that, they prefered to mock and hate this man.

  • I always had a soft spot in my heart for Rev. Falwell for 2 reasons-his Christian orthodoxy on most social issues —and the fact he drove the liberal media rat traps.
