ViceCapades: You theists have figured out the Vast Atheist Conspiracy(tm).

Richard Dawkins has a book on the best seller list that outlines exactly how to rid the world of religion using people's fear of social derision as a catalyst.

Every day you can read the little dawkins clones in every thread saying exactly what he has told people to say: I am evolved, you are neanderthal. I am scientific, you are emoional. You have a disease, I am cured. I am a freethinker, you are a slave to God.

But keep on saying that you don't conspire to rid God from the public sphere. Everyone knows the majority of athiests do. The only reason you haven't won is that you're numbers are small. And that's what Dawkins aims to achieve.

God killed him because of the gays.



Well, if God were real, and a loving god he would have killed him for the remarks he made about the gays.

I not going to celebrate a man dying, but I'm not losing any sleep cause of the death of a racist/homophob.

nope. not any.

FriarTuck: Again, I don't know what conservative circles you are talking about.

i did multi-state campaigns for bush sr. and dole. attended 88 and voting delegate to 92 gop convention.

those conservative circles. between the 'moral majority' and 'christian conservative' groups, i can find no larger reason for the downfall of an ideology i once identified with.

insisting that he was only prominent because of the ability to point at him and say 'hey, he's stupid!' is daft. he was prominent because he delivered votes. look no further than the racing to the 'pander to liberty university' bottom of the barrel in the current election.

Corvus: I don't agree with his view, and very against his tactics, but I wished him no ill will.

Rest in peace.


That was very decent. Too bad there is so little decency in this thread.
 
2007-05-15 06:22:22 PM
As a Christian, I forgive his ignorance, and wonder if God will be forgiving, as I highly doubt that man has repentance toward his actions on Earth.

As a petty, petty human, I pumped my fist and shouted "YES!" when I was told about this.

I'll enjoy this for a while, but feel real guilty about being so happy that this man is dead.
 
2007-05-15 06:23:23 PM
This man did more damage to our country than anyone in my lifetime save george bush (or whoever pulls his strings)

The moral majority, which was neither, made religion a force in politics and the government.

I'm not glad he's dead, he had a family who now has to grieve, but I'm not sorry either. And I hope it hurt.

Epitaph for Jerry Fartwell:

"Maybe Jesus will forgive you. I do not."
 
2007-05-15 06:30:05 PM
Yeah, this late in the thread, like anyone cares, but eh why not...I don't tend to celebrate the death of anyone but I've gotta say that Falwell was a bulk quantity of feminine cleansing solution. Never liked the guy. Much love do I have for the Christians, yes, but considering that I was actually raised by family and then schoolteachers (private Baptist school) who were real devotees/adherents of this guy, just gotta say that we're better off without him.

/RIP in Pagan Hell, Falwell, for a while, til you get to possibly reincarnate. Hope you come back as a worm and someone baits their hook with your slimy personage

So he finally cashed in his frequent flyer miles to hell for a one way ticket.. An evil man is gone but I am sure someone will step up to fill his asshat shoes. That thought doesn’t stop this from being a good day though. Even my gardenia’s bloomed for the first time ever this afternoon. I am a happy man.

As if this asshat had any moral or compassion?

This is an asshat that likely has caused death and destruction among Americans. An American killing Americans.

And do not ever compare atheists with religious fundamentalists! When you do, you are a moron!

I_C_Weener: I'd guess most of the people celebrating his death are white, heterosexual males.

One more white, heterosexual male for the celebration. I have my ticket. Which way to the front row?

There's a party in HELL tonight...they got themselves a new celebrity resident!

The only thing better would be if he were discovered with a live, young, black man.

I don't take joy in anyone's death, but I do take a bit of relief. It means that there is just one less person preaching hate and poisoning young minds against reason. It's a shame he didn't find reason and logic himself before his death.

And you christians out there, go ahead and "pray". Keep praying. When you get sick, pray to be healed... don't go to a doctor that practices evil secular science; don't take drugs or any by-product of devil-worshiping, evolution-proving, nontheist technology. Don't clog up our hospitals with your theist body. You can have jesus to yourselves. We'll take science.

I'll assume you mean "fundies" when you say "Christians."

To promote technology and science as being nontheist or God forbid antitheist, you just play into the same dumbassery as the people who actually think so.

Maybe you were just trolling, but this is the same sort of cockheadedness that Falwell perpetuated. but from a different dugout.

Get a life, and then die in a fire.

Seriously - look at your comments. They are hateful, judgmental, and cruel.

How are these comments any different than Fred Phelps and his ilk and what they do when people die????

You guys are worse than any fundamentalist I've ever seen.


There's hypocritical, and then there's karma.

"I swear it was huge, it was like, this big! Anyway I eagerly took it into my mouth and WHAMMO! God smites me. Just like that. No memo, no warning. Just... just... Smote! Looked so harmless too with his purple fur, weird antenna thing and European carry-all. I had no idea that a couple glasses of sherry, and a few tracks from 'Les Mis' later, I'd be farking DEAD! I mean, I just wanted to try it... y'know... see how BAD it was!"
 
2007-05-15 06:54:53 PM
To all those who are cracking jokes about somebody dying. I hope the most important person in your life is tortured, raped and killed in the near future.
 
2007-05-15 06:54:58 PM
He was a human being. On that level at least, I'm sorry he died.

But I make no apologies for feeling that his mixing of religion and politics was and is anethma to what this country was based on, and blatantly offensive besides.

Take that for what its worth.

Hyperbolic Hyperbole: I'll enjoy this for a while, but feel real guilty about being so happy that this man is dead.

If anything, you should be glad he's dead so he doesn't screw up anything worse than he already has.

garron: Seriously - look at your comments. They are hateful, judgmental, and cruel.

Too bad.

How are these comments any different than Fred Phelps and his ilk and what they do when people die????

Because Phelps is a hypocrite against his own religion. As an atheist who believes f*cks like Falwell earn their comeuppance, I'm hardly hypocritical. His death was long-awaited.

You guys are worse than any fundamentalist I've ever seen.

No, we're relieved that one more evil assf*ck has seen his end.

There are certain people the world is better off without. This Trolloc was one of them. If there were ever an American counterpart to Osama bin Laden, Falwell would be it.

Buh-bye Falwell, have fun burning in the hell you invented.

dc-kid: i did multi-state campaigns for bush sr. and dole. attended 88 and voting delegate to 92 gop convention.

I worked for GOP campaigns in NH when I was up at school in 2000. Maybe his popularity waned and when you were there he was a force and when I was there he was a sideshow to the process.

It seemed like by the end of his life the moral majority was anything but and he was being used as a tool by the MSM more than anything.

That being said, until his dying day I bet he delivered votes in the bible belt. However, I don't know if any other preacher who presses everyone on their pro-life stance and personal faith would have achieved the same thing.

My impression of him was always more of a TV man than anything else. We'll have to agree to disagree, heap.

I don't think it's daft at all to suggest that he stayed popular in the media because of his outrageous sayings which could be turned against him.


Hyperbolic Hyperbole sez: (Re: ViceCapades rant):
To promote technology and science as being nontheist or God forbid antitheist, you just play into the same dumbassery as the people who actually think so.
-------------------------------------------

Um. The purpose of his rant is to portray Christians as non-scientific or unable to grasp science as it is a more 'evolved' way of thinking. It's straight out of the Dawkins playbook.

Look at ViceCapades posts here. Rarely does he post anything that isn't directly out of the Dawkins talking points.

I can't remember the last time I was so happy about someone's death. And I love reading how ecstatic the rest of the world is to have this evil man dead. I hope the mainstream media pisses on his grave as much as we seem to be.

And I hope nobody ever replaces this douche.

whidbey:

---------------------

An atheist that believes in karma? ha. pick and choose I guess.

He died at his desk of the university he founded. He lived long- well into his 70's. He'll leave behind a legacy, albeit a legacy completely opposite to what you hold dear.

You can hardly say his death is comeuppance. If anything he punched out his card before he could get dethroned like Haggard. They tried to get him for 30 years but couldn't. Instead it was a bum ticket, not Wolf Blitzer that did him in.
 
2007-05-15 07:07:31 PM
So he died from a "sever bowel obstruction". I wonder what the hell was up his ass?

I would argue that this thread is proof positive that the legacy he's left behind is one of hate and bigotry.

Don't you find it telling that you're in a tiny minority?

Even the middle aged Soccer Mom's I work with (complete with SUVs and 'Support the Troops' ribbons) had two words for this guy:

"Good riddance."
 
2007-05-15 07:10:18 PM
DEAD!

Fark you, you filthy fat bastard!

Where does the line start to piss on his grave?
