Jerry L Fallwell is dead.

I will die some day too. I will not get to meet Rev Fallwell after I die. Nor will anyone else.
We are instructed not to exalt when our enemy falls for they too are god's creatures. But this caricature, sculpted badly from a barrow full of arterial plaque, was a meddlesome fool good only at conning other fools. It will take a decade to undo his damage to individual liberties in the U.S.

But the very worst thing about him was the bad name he gave religion. His ceaseless attempts to put an unsophisticated fundamentalist stamp on all American lives by mingling church and state were large-print proof that the power of politics was the crown sought by those without the talent to seek the power of religion.

Good riddance.
