Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Jerry Falwell Leaves His Fortune To Far Less Fortunate Folk ...

Jerry Falwell Leaves His Fortune To Far Less Fortunate Folk ...

*
Jumping Holy Jehovah, brothers and sisters!

Praise the lord and heaven help us.

We're just joking of course.

Surely you didn't seriously swallow such an obviously sham story title as that, did you!?

About this infamous, fat, phony, fakir of a false prophet?

Duh.

Maybe Mr FakeFalwell, for once in his life of luxury, spoke the truth when he allegedly was once heard to whisper:"There's one born every minute."

Or was that:"Never give a sucker an even break"?

Or maybe:"Fools and their money are soon parted"?

Well, what do you think he said and/or thought to himself?

Especially, regarding written reports by revered writers in/of The Bible re;rich men having a tougher time trying to get into heaven, than huge humped camels have trying to trundle through eyes of needles.

Eh? (Men?)

Here's some nice quotes from Falwell:

* Jerry Falwell Previously Used Bible To Justify Segregation and Criticize Interracial Marriage, Then Apologized. In 1958, Falwell gave a sermon on segregation, stating that "The true Negro does not want integration... He realizes his potential is far better among his own race... It will destroy our race eventually... In one northern city, a pastor friend of mine tells me that a couple of opposite race live next door to his church as man and wife... It boils down to whether we are going to take God's Word as final." He apologized for his comments in a 1988 interview. [Washington Post, 7/24/88]

* Falwell Said That If Supreme Court Had "Known God's Word", Brown v. Board of Education Would Have Been Decided Differently, Did Not Apologize. Referring to the Supreme Courts' decision in Brown v. Board of Education, Christian televangelist and Liberty University founder Jerry Falwell once said [in a 1958 speech], "If Chief Justice [Earl] Warren and his associates had known God's Word..., I am quite confident that the 1954 decision would never have been made." There is no record of an apology. [National Journal, 11/3/84]

Later, Falwell learned that he'd have to stop publicly declaring the way he felt about blacks, and focus instead on hating gays, feminists, Muslims, Jews, and Democrats.

He's gone to a better place.
Where ever it is, it's better for me and millions of others.
Yippee! He's out of our faces at last.
I wonder how he'll react when he finds out Jesus wasn't white and that he was Jew who prefered the regular company of men?

Exactly Richard.
Since when hoarding up wealth, while serving the Lord is possible, or permissible?
Serving and worshipping two Lords just as impossible for Mr. Falwell, as any other mortal soul. He either serves his true God, or he subjects himself to mammon.

We know how this pretender has chosen. Ever since his choice on the side of 30 pieces of silver, he led his congregation to astray, to a particularly poisonous heresy, namely Christian Zionism.

Thanks for the larf.
My biggest larf from this old bag was when he condemned the Tely Tubbies for being gay, Rinky Tink, the purple one with the handbag and the triangle on his head.
Cause of death?
Let's have a raffle.
My guess would be tertiary syphilatic dementia.

There is a sad side to this story. The poor (and I do mean poor) deluded people who mainly helped make this maggot so wealthy will already be looking around for another hero -- so they can throw their cash at him/her.

They'd be better off backing a horse or buying a lotto ticket. That way would have 'some' chance (no matter how slim) of getting what they were hoping for.

So, so, so, sad. So many gullible people just can NOT be helped.

Does this mean Falwell's going to miss Armagedon then? After patiently waiting so long? Not fair is it that he had to go all on his iddy-biddy own.

Aaaarrhhh. Such a shame. :~p

Maybe better luck next time. You know, when his time in the next life runs out too.

Greetings from the Gorillas Guides team Richard and readers. I am truly shocked at this posting.

We should only speak good of the dead.

Falwell is dead. Good.

If we assume what he said were his beliefs to be correct he is now going to spend all eternity being first hit in the face by a teletubby with a flaming handbag and then being buggered.

That sounds even better to me.

Sounds like the performance would be a rapture to watch who has tickets?

He was a vicious racist evil old sh*tbag I'm only sorry his buddy Pat Robertson isn't sharing his casket..

Greedy, selfish sob that he was right to the end, he even hogged the RAPTURE all to himself.

I mean, never mind his money, wasn't the RAPTURE - above all else - something he promised 'faithfully' would be shared?

What kind of person would worry about what happend or will happen to a conman who would happily take - nay - squeeze - the last cent out of the poorest of the poor without even batting an eyelid?

I'll tell you. Only those sharing in his ill gotten gains, or the incurably deluded.
