A Eulogy Made In Heaven: Christopher Hitchens On Jerry Falwell
Ok, people, this is Absolutely F*cking Brilliant!!!! Talk about speaking some truth, talk about telling it like it is! It just doesn't get much better than this.
This Christopher Hitchens guy is usually quite good, but here he hits a peak. I mean, someone has to speak up for sanity and rationality in the face of the U.S. media's ridiculously respectful treatment of that hate-filled fraud Jerry Falwell ever since his death a few days ago. I mean, really, all he deserves for his life of homophobic, misogynistic, xenophobic, anti-rational hate-spewing is straight-out contempt.
Falwell, as you're probably well aware, liked to talk A WHOLE LOT about Satan, but if there's anyone out there who was an anti-Christ - in the sense of preaching a message in complete contradiction to the peace, love and forgiveness message of Christ - then it was this Jerry buffoon.
And, no, this clip wasn't sent to me by Tinky Winky, the "gay" Teletubby that Jerry insisted was an evil influence on the children of America, I actually received it from an adult male Jew. But, come to think of it, what did Jerry say about adult male Jews again?
