Rev. Jerry Falwell Is Dead
 
The Rev. Jerry Falwell, the television evangelist who founded the Moral Majority and used it to mold the religious right into a political force, died Tuesday shortly after being found unconscious in his office at Liberty University. He was 73.

And of course, we can't forget the Slayer tribute:

Read Between the Lies

Evangelist you claim God speaks through you,
Your restless mouth full of lies gains popularity.
You care not for the old that suffer,
When empty pockets cry from hunger.

Penniless from their generosity,
Sharing their money to quench your greed.
Searching for the answer to their prayers
They cry their last wish of need.
Save me.

His spirit lives and breathes in me.
The almighty transformed to your screen.
The meanings lost in its translation,
No holy words, describe his deception.

You say you'll help us find the lord,
Tell me preacher how do you know
A simple quest for a visible savior,
To lead us through our final prayer.
Save me.

Send your donations,
Contribute to the cause.
Luxuries,
Your righteous reward?

Praise the lord, praise god,
Is what you wish to sell.
There is no heaven without a hell.

LEAD: HANNEMAN

In your mind's eye could you truly believe,
That by giving you can save your soul,
Could you be so naive!
You heal the sick,[you] raise the dead,
You blind the congregation
With the things you say.

Religious blackmail a deceit of trust,
That death will come and all will be lost.

Can you hear the serpents call,
Look deep in those deceiving eyes.
Ignore the writing on the wall,
You should read between the lies.

When doubt subsides his honesty,
An inquiry, is it blasphemy?
Impure the soul, that's made to suffer,
No sermons left to hide or cover,
An empty promise, lie unfulfilled,
To steal a dream or get it killed.
They claim your trip to heavens nearby,
You may believe it but satan wouldn't lie.

If thinking Jerry Falwell was an ass is anti-American then hand me my Koran, I'm moving, too.

There is a difference in believing Jerry Falwell was an ass, and believing that all Evangelists are therefore the same. That is like saying because Bin Laden is an ass, then all Arabs must be the same.

I just don't see where using Jerry Falwell's death as an opportunity to bash all Evangelists in a general sense is a good thing to be doing here in the bible belt, especially when there are sites in Iran where that sort of thing is much more popular and acceptable.

Just as soon as you move to communist China where free speech is forbidden.

Maybe you won't get run over by a tank before you remember what makes our country so special....but we can still hope you do.....


Let me guess....you're one of those idiots who thinks you can save a soul with a checkbook, huh?

Some would say it's not a good thing to call exercising your First Amendment Right to free speech a promotion of Islam or any other religion based on the idiotic belief in imaginary beings.

Then again, most religious zealots ARE idiots, aren't they?

I first must say that I think most high dollar preachers are not worth their pay matter of fact all of them should be "Teaching" from the heart and not the pocket book. With that said I think Jerry had his problems no doubt. Now for all of you that would like to run to judgment you will be the first to be judged by YAHWEH ("I AM WHO I AM") and held accountable for your words and actions. Yes I know you do not choose to believe as I do so be it:rolleyes: Your method is to attack and tear down as it was written so it is happening. The dark side has but a short time so they must work fast only to have the fate of the Tares. The wheat are the children of YAHWEH ("I AM WHO I AM") and they shall bow before HIM with rewards and the Tares go into the fire. Before you go on your attack Legion know that the SON OF DAVID will crush your head as you bruise his heal and your time is very, very, very short. There is but ONE JUDGE !!!!

BTW, my method is NOT attack, but rather to ridicule. Notice I LAUGH at your stupidity rather than asking you to meet me in a parking lot.

This is just another blatant example of your continued religious propaganda.

Yeah China.... Or Iran... You think you could find a Slayer song that bashes Islam on that Persian site that seems to be in sync with your beliefs? I don't think so.

Nope, I'm not a fan of Jerry or telemarketers in general.. See that is the difference between you and me. I might not like or agree with Falwell, but that doesn't mean that I'm a low level stereotyper who then thinks all "men of the cloth" are bad/wrong.... In other words, I don't throw out the baby with the bath water....

Why would they bash Islam.....that's not their gimmick. You ever see kiss wearing masks instead of makeup? That's not their gimmick. You ever see Elton John wearing a normal pair of glasses? That's not his gimmick. You ever heard Black Sabbath write a song bashing Islam? That's not their gimmick.

Get it, genius?

We're GLAD you find it offensive. THAT was the point.

Yep, anyone who makes a claim they cannot support is a liar and I don't differentiate between them regardless of what imaginary being they are preaching about.

BTW, show me the one that can produce a visible savior and I'll stop stereotyping them ALL. The difference between me and you is I can tell the difference between fiction and reality.

The "Accuser" is another one of his names so you fit the mold just fine. I stated what I believe as you have and we are diametrically apposed and I am very content to know that. You have many fires to flame so waste no time for time is very short !

LAF

So you believe I'm the devil

You're more ****ed in the head than Hugo Chavez.

Your cut&paste post is off topic my dear friend. Heh, a monkey can cut&paste. Can you write for yourself?

Had you posted a Slayer song against Falwell, (or one that you had thoughtfully written yourself) I doubt I would have cared to response. But you took the opportunity to post a pot shot that your average Iranian might post (as i have demonstrated) in a completely stereotypical nature.

Your post was not meant as a comment toward the news but rather it was a mean spirited and inciteful push of the proverbial relgious button, as your above quote demonstates. (and as Slayer intended I'm sure) Yep, it is only a matter of time before you abuse the privledge and this thread gets closed for "drifting" off topic. I prefer to think of it as slamming it off topic, using the old tried and true "religious zealots ARE idiots" method. But each person can make up his or her own mind here.
