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?

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....
