God Takes Revenge on Falwell
LYNCHBURG, Va. — The Rev. Jerry Falwell, who founded the Moral Majority and built the religious right into a political force, died Tuesday shortly after being found unconscious in his office at Liberty University, a school executive said. He was 73.Falwell liked to claim that things like hurricanes and terrorist attacks were god's revenge on what he thought of as bad people (i.e., gays, lesbians, secular humanists, etc).
So, clearly, his death begs the question: what did he do to piss god off?
Update: here's one of my favorite Falwell quotes:
"AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals."
