Falwell's End

Over the weekend, I posted a blog titled The Evils of Radical Fundamentalism and I mentioned Jerry Falwell in the piece as being one of the men responsible for the destructive movement against democracy.

I don't take joy when someone I find repulsive has come to his or her end, and that is the case with the death of Jerry Falwell.

However, I am certainly not crying either.

Even though Falwell made some despicable, confounding comments and showed no remorse for those who were dealing with AIDS, or died on 9/11 at the hands radical fundamentalists, or from the ravages of Hurricane Katrina, I, on the other hand, will rise above such hatred and hold my tongue, bow my head and dwell in silent gratitude.
