In Memoriam

Jerry Laymon Falwell, Sr. (August 11, 1933 - May 15, 2007). Carpetbagger (05.15.07):
"I have to admit, writing about Falwell’s death poses an awkward challenge for me.

When I worked at Americans United for Separation of Church and State for several years, I read Falwell’s materials, I listened to his speeches, I watched his interviews, and got a real sense for who this man was and what he devoted his life to."

Jerry Falwell dies at age 73

"In literally every instance, I was repelled and appalled. But is it not callous to bash a man just hours after his death?"

"I have another idea — I’ll document Jerry Falwell’s professional life and let his record speak for itself."
