Is it too early to hope for a Trifecta?
2007-05-15 01:50:58 PM  
Wow, guess he get's to meet Jesus today huh?
2007-05-15 01:50:58 PM  
Can we get some gay people to say some good things about him? that would be pretty funny.
2007-05-15 01:50:58 PM  
Meh, they'll just replace him with some other #2. We know how these fundamentalist terror organizations work.
2007-05-15 01:50:58 PM  
He was later moved to a better hospital where his condition was upgraded to Alive.

/Not really.
2007-05-15 01:50:59 PM  
God bless you Jerry Falwell. The world and America has lost a good man but Heaven is now richer. God bless you Jerry, you served God and man well.
2007-05-15 01:50:59 PM  
How long before someone blames the gheys on this.
2007-05-15 01:51:00 PM  
Maybe now he can tell us the real answer to this question...

Anyone else listening to the Dead Kennedys right now?


/Too Obscure?
2007-05-15 01:51:01 PM  
The chain of ignorance is one link smaller...
2007-05-15 01:51:02 PM  
Who do you suppose the first one to cornhole him will be?

/a) Richard Speck
//b) Saddam
///c) Freddie Mercury

Blow, hookers; hookers, blow

Dirt, worms; worms, dirt

2007-05-15 01:51:17 PM  
I think this is the first time in my life where I've heard the news of someone's death and thought, "Good riddance".

Wow. I'm shocked at my own reaction but good god, I got sick of that man opening up his mouth and hearing nothing but hatred coming out.
2007-05-15 01:51:18 PM  
New thread.

Cue farkers reproaching others about this gloating.

Pray for the family, and pray that his horrible legacy of staining the name of Christ begins to end now.

That will be all.

And here's a repost from the other thread. just because it was damn funny.

May Jesus have mercy on his soul and he might see the error of his ways so that he might enter the kingdom of heaven.

May I be given as much of a chance when my time comes.

/if you belive that sort of thing.
2007-05-15 01:51:19 PM  
Wow, people! Can't you just give the man a little respect in death? I mean, this is Fark, but sheesh!


Damn it! I tried to hold it together!
2007-05-15 01:51:21 PM  
Chicken -
Dude...that's Swaggart
/what gives?
2007-05-15 01:51:21 PM  
All his supporters should be happy about this, right? Doesn't it mean that the Lord "called him home" and he's probably kickin' it with the J-man right now, drinking brewskis and watching sports on Jesus' kick-ass high-definition TV while hot angels in filmy transparent robes wait on them?

As a Christian, I feel obligated to say something nice about him.

But honestly, I can't think of anything.
2007-05-15 01:51:37 PM  
I've never been impressed with him, but to be honest, I can't think of any specific reasons to truly dislike him.

Do you have specific reasons? Please post them...

ubett, this is for you:

"After the September 11, 2001, attacks Falwell said 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.'"

Faaaaaaaaaaaark You, Fundyman.

Larry Flynt wins.
2007-05-15 01:51:43 PM  
I will not celebrate the death of another person...

I might smile bemusedly.

And wonder if Fred Phelps is planning on protesting the funeral...

But I will not celebrate..
2007-05-15 01:51:50 PM  
Wahoo! That was one ignorant racist homophobic woman-hating evil son of a biatch. Too bad I don't believe in Hell-- I'd love to think of him rotting there for eternity.

There -- how's that for an obituary?
2007-05-15 01:51:51 PM  
Think Jesus will throw him a pity resurrection?

Yeah, me neither.
2007-05-15 01:51:55 PM  
if hell exists i am sure i'll see him when i get there.
2007-05-15 01:52:00 PM  
Followup: Lesbians, gays, blacks, Muslims, abortionists, Neworleanians, and atheists are being rounded up for questioning.

/Don't know why
2007-05-15 01:52:08 PM  

Then you aren't a Christian.
2007-05-15 01:52:17 PM  
As with the radical Islamic nuts in the Middle East, I'm sure there's 100 people equally crazy ready to replace him.

I am a radical Islamic nut from the Middle East, but I did not get a kick out of your reply.

However, I am getting a kick out of this whole Internet thing in general.
2007-05-15 01:52:18 PM  
The man was unhealthy, inside and out. Mentally and physically. He hated people. And he probably croaked eating a ham sammich.

You don't hear about the Dalai Lama's or the Popes dying like this... except maybe this current pope might die from a lightening strike. But my point is... Falwell was a DICKHEAD
2007-05-15 01:52:18 PM  
In other news, Jerry Falwell's mom found in the outhouse crying in her Campari.

/Aisle seat, please.
2007-05-15 01:52:24 PM  
Lynchburg hospital was experiencing incongruities with its reality and all the doctors rematerialized as dancers on a sprocket farm in South Dakota, thus leaving Jerry Falwell to die by accident

[image from too old to be available]

Jesus was heard saying "wtf was that?" and promptly turned into an albino cow

/the last moments of Jerry Falwell's life
2007-05-15 01:52:24 PM  
The only thing this will do is get some other wacko to fill the hate spewing void his death leaves in the Moral Majority. The devil you know and all that.
2007-05-15 01:52:25 PM  
goodnight, Fundie-Man

Now that... THAT'S funny!
2007-05-15 01:52:29 PM  
Shouldn't this be under the spiffy tag?
2007-05-15 01:52:32 PM  
I didn't know so many farkers were believers in heaven/hell.
2007-05-15 01:52:37 PM  
Where's your Messiah now?

Apparently to busy appearing on Potato chips and Tortillas.

\\\Punched my ticket a LONG time ago
2007-05-15 01:52:37 PM  
This is the best news of the week, I hope hell is ready for you, Jerry!

/they're probably in crisis mode trying to finish the food and decorations
2007-05-15 01:52:37 PM  
Boy is he going to be surprised when they tell him he's not allowed in Valhalla.
2007-05-15 01:52:43 PM  
Not sad, not happy. A guy who said stuff died. I'll get over it.
2007-05-15 01:52:46 PM  

As much as I didn't like this guy, there is way too much joy in this thread for the death of someone who is merely a political enemy.

He's a political enemy in the same way that Al Qaeda are political enemies.

Religious fundamentalists will not stop until they have the entire world falling under one set of rules dictated by their religion.

The more of them that die, the better off the world is.
2007-05-15 01:52:47 PM  
Good that he's dead.

One less evangelical will be good for the world.
2007-05-15 01:52:49 PM  
Again, what's a flibble?

and yes, I have a "Happy Asshole!""
2007-05-15 01:52:49 PM  
Too bad, so sad. He he he.

The smile on my face will be the same when it's Cheney's turn.
2007-05-15 01:52:50 PM  
Hell got a little more crowded today.

/my condolences to the family.
2007-05-15 01:52:52 PM  
no spiffy tag?
2007-05-15 01:52:52 PM  
I guess it's not surprising that the same liberals shrieking with indignation over comments about Molly Ivins death are the same ones laughing and mocking the death of this man.

Did Molly Ivis support aparteid in South Africa? Segregation here? Did she say that God is a Republican and that AIDS is God's punishment for America tolerating gay people?
2007-05-15 01:52:53 PM  
Yosluggo -

Where've you been since '79? Falwell was a tool. The only good thing he's done was lose a libel lawsuit and start a law school with unbelievable comedic value.
2007-05-15 01:52:56 PM  
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."

Go team!
