I just heard that on the radio. The name sounds familiar, but he doesn't look familiar to me at all. Not that I watch or listen to religious programs. :-\

No Linds. I don't know anything his religious views, as I have my own beliefs. As far as him being a scary individual, I know nothing about that either. I say R.I.P. just because he was a person and he died.

Maybe he was a person with a wife and 2 or 3 kids. Aside from his beliefs, people that love him will miss him.

Well, he and the moral majority were instrumental in the 1980s in getting Ronald Reagan elected. And Reagan helped bring about the end of Communism in the Soviet Union. So perhaps like all of us, Falwell was neither all saint nor all sinner.....

Political leanings, too far right and too far left are scary. I don't have to agree with Mr Falwells views or methods. I do respect his commitment to what he felt was right and what he believed.

I certainly have not been a Farwell fan. I do think he's tipped too far to the right but like someone said, he was a human being with a family.

Very well said!

I'm pretty right (politically) but not even remotely close to being that far right. However Liberty was one university that I was highly considering attending. I ended up on their mailing list and recieved Jerry's monthly newsletter. It was an interesting read thats for sure.

My prayers for his family and friends.
