Jerry Falwell Dead at 73

Falwell has found himself at the center of several controversies, such as the one sparked by his comments two days after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in which he seemed to blame "abortionists," gays, lesbians, the ACLU and People for American Way for causing the attacks, saying they "helped this happen."

On September 14, 2001, he told CNN that he would "never blame any human being except the terrorists, and if I left that impression with gays or lesbians or anyone else, I apologize."
Let the eulogizing begin.

The Carpetbagger compiled a list of Falwell's career accomplishments, so you don't have to.

Nooooo! Who will guide the Liberty University academic juggernaut now? Who will warn us about the gay agenda? Who will buy the XXXL hats?

Brings a tear to me eye--on incredibly-f*cking-joyous tear.

I've heard that he was pretty bad, but that list really makes him look bad. Thanks for posting about it.

Thank God we have a White House full of Regent University graduates to take his place.

He's left a throng of hateful followers in his wake. No big gain, really.
