Just got home to find that Jerry Falwell is dead.
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.
Ron Godwin, the university's executive vice president, said Falwell, 73, was found unresponsive around 10:45 a.m. and taken to Lynchburg General Hospital. "CPR efforts were unsuccessful," he said.
Godwin said he was not sure what caused the collapse, but he said Falwell "has a history of heart challenges."
Okay, so the AP report gives Falwell kudos for bringing together conservatives, but neglects the horrid, nasty, bigoted things Falwell has said throughout his career. Sorry the man is dead, but...
When one lives a life promoting hate, it really is hard to work up any sorrow at his demise.
