I hate to take satisfaction in a man’s death but this guy was a hard-core, straight-up, stone-cold hater. Other people have chronicled his hate but I’d like to remind y’all of some of his sayings over the years. He was an ardent segregationist:

If Chief Justice Warren and his associates had known God’s word and had desired to do the Lord’s will, I am quite confident that the 1954 decision [Brown v. Board of Education] would never have been made…. The facilities should be separate. When God has drawn a line of distinction, we should not attempt to cross that line.

And also

“I do question the sincerity and non-violent intentions of some civil rights leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mr. James Farmer, and others, who are known to have left-wing associations.

Yet he hated black people not just here in the United States but all over the world. After a visit to South Africa in 1985, Falwell urged the good Christian folk of America to buy up gold Krugerrands and push U.S. “reinvestment” in South Africa. He also said of Nobel-Prize winning Bishop Desmond Tutu,”I think he’s a phony, period, as far as representing the black people of South Africa.” Hmm. Quite a legacy to leave behind.

He was an equal opportunity hater though. More below:

If you’re not a born-again Christian, you’re a failure as a human being.

Christians, like slaves and soldiers, ask no questions.

I think the Moslem faith teaches hate.

I believe that global warming is a myth. And so, therefore, I have no conscience problems at all and I’m going to buy a Suburban next time.

Homosexuality is Satan’s diabolical attack upon the family that will not only have a corrupting influence upon our next generation, but it will also bring down the wrath of God upon America.

And, I know that I’ll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. 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.”
Rev Jerry Falwell, blaming civil libertarians, feminists, homosexuals, and abortion rights supporters for the terrorist attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, quoted from John F Harris, “God Gave US ‘What We Deserve,’ Falwell Says,” The Washington Post (September 14, 2001)

The Jews are returning to their land of unbelief. They are spiritually blind and desperately in need of their Messiah and Savior. (About.com)
