Falwell's Dead

Not that I'll be exactly missing the hatemonger. Part of his legacy:
"I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians ... the A.C.L.U., 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.'"

-- Jerry Falwell, September 13th, 2001, on The 700 Club

I remember that quote all too well. It was that statement alongside Pat Robertson that made salient that the US was to slide closer to a 21st century fascism in the aftermath of 9-11.
