Jerry Falwell is dead.
In my experience (just had to put that up there first, because I don't want people thinking I'm making a generalization about people I've never met), born-again Christians have a tendancy to be more militant and intolerant of people who don't think exactly along the lines that they themselves do. I think I know two people who don't fit that stereotype, and they're within my personal blog circle (if you know of any more, please point them out - I'm always on the lookout for nice people).
I think Jerry Falwell fits into that (personal) stereotype better than anyone else I've ever heard about or met. And I live in the Bible Belt, so I know a LOT of born-agains.
Anyway, it'd be mean to say "good riddance", and nothing's going to change what's already been done, but I really wish there was a way to keep people from trying to atone for their sins through the persecution and judgement of others. That's just not What Jesus Would Do, y'all.
