Why I won't mourn Jerry Falwell

Falwell's idea of being a friend of the Jews was not a good one. There were people who thought they were befriending the blacks by keeping them slaves, because the black constitution needed the discipline. Falwell was that kind of friend to the Jews; his motives were self-serving, abhorrent, and not actually pro-Jewish at all. (We want you to have Israel so a god can come and kill 2/3 of you after a major war??)

Also, he thought the Jewish people were harboring the ant-Christ. ("In my opinion, the Antichrist will be a counterfeit of the true Christ, which means that he will be male and Jewish, since Jesus was male and Jewish.")

Also, he was a bigot, a reactionary, a liar, and a fool. ("The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. 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.")

Also, he was a turd: Pro-segregation and anti every advancement in woman's rights, human dignity and everything liberal. ("I listen to feminists and all these radical gals. ... These women just need a man in the house. That's all they need. Most of the feminists need a man to tell them what time of day it is and to lead them home. And they blew it and they're mad at all men. Feminists hate men. They're sexist. They hate men; that's their problem")

So, naturally, its no surprise at all the Toby Katz sits among his chief mourners.
