Jerry Falwell RIP - Another Titan pases from amongst us

" .....these Islamic fundamentalists, these radical terrorists, these Middle Eastern monsters are committed to destroying the Jewish nation, driving her into the Mediterranean, conquering the world. And, we are the great Satan. We are the ultimate goal. I talked this morning with Tom Rose publisher of the Jerusalem Post, and orthodox Jew, and he said, "Now America knows in a horrible way what Israel's been facing for 53 years at the hand of Arafat and other terrorists and radicals and barbarians......

.....since 1812, this is the first time that we've been attacked on our soil, first time, and by far the worst results. And I fear, as Donald Rumsfeld, the Secretary of Defense said yesterday, that this is only the beginning. And with biological warfare available to these monsters; the Husseins, the Bin Ladens, the Arafats, what we saw on Tuesday, as terrible as it is, could be miniscule if, in fact, if in fact God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve....

.....The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America. I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen'.

Jerry Falwell in conversation with Pat Robertson from Robertson's 700 Club television program on Thursday, Sept. 13 2001.

Picture is the ad parody Hustler published and formed the basis of Falwell's action Hustler Magazine, Inc. v. Falwell, 485 U.S. 46 (1988)

The parody showed a picture of Falwell, with an "interview" in which "Falwell" describes his first sexual experience as occurring “with Mom” in an outhouse while both were "drunk off our God-fearing asses on Campari." In the spoof interview, "Falwell" goes on to say that he was so intoxicated that "Mom looked better than a Baptist whore with a $100 donation," that he decided to have sex with his mother since she had "showed all the other guys in town such a good time," and that they had intercourse regularly afterwards. Finally, when asked if he had tried Campari since, "Falwell" answered, "I always get sloshed before I go out to the pulpit. You don’t think I could lay down all that bullshit sober, do you?"

A jury in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia found the parody did not amount to libel. The US Supreme Court ruled that a public figure could not recover damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress based on a satire because under the1st Amendment an obvious satire or parody of a public figure remains protected speech, even if it causes emotional distress to that person.(1988 voted 8-0)

Update 18th May Larry Flynt interviewed by larry King talking about Jerry Falwell on YouTube ... he didn't have a bad word for him...

I'm just disappointed that there isn't actually a Hell for Falwell to burn in.
