The Christian Thing to Do

It's what Jesus would have done, or not.

A small group of protesters gathered near the funeral services to criticize the man who mobilized Christian evangelicals and made them a major force in American politics -- often by playing on social prejudices.

A group of Liberty University students staged a counterprotest.

And Campbell County authorities arrested a student for having several bombs in his car.

The student, 19-year-old Mark D. Uhl of Amissville, Va., reportedly told authorities that he was making bombs to stop protesters from disrupting the funeral service. The devices were made of a combination of gasoline and detergent...

Three other suspects are also being sought, including a high school student and a soldier from Fort Benning, Ga. Uhl was turned into authorities on a tip from one of his relatives, and in this 2005 news report, Uhl is mentioned as a Junior ROTC member at Liberty High School.

Falwell long used his Old Time Gospel radio program to promote segregationists such as George Wallace and Lester Maddox, and as late as the 1980's still supported apartheid in South Africa.

Falwell used to refer to himself as Dr. Jerry Falwell, when he in fact held no such real educational degree. A South Korean religious school which was not even an accredited institution gave Falwell a honorary doctorate.

Besides holding a phony religious degree, this racist fraud ran Liberty University charging students $16,000 a year for a mail order religious education degree, although he did have actual classrooms unlike some totally crooked diploma mills that operate out of some small second floor fly-by-night office, where worthless degrees are torn off rolls like a papertowel.

Hearing a spokesman for the White House and others sing the praises for Falwell yesterday was simply appalling. His version of the Christian faith often had little to do with the teachings of Jesus or the Bible. Jesus preached about his coming kingdom on Earth. Falwell promoted his own political kingdom on Earth, which was a complete manmade counterfeit teaching and without any Biblical support whatsoever.

About the only good thing that I say about Falwell was that he ws so absurd that he was at at least funny. When he used to appear on a TV in my TV business, many customers mistook Falwell for a comedian. A comic on the short lived TV sitcom show, CARTER COUNTRY" looked so much like Falwell. But you can't beat the original for sheer comedy value. The Jerry Falwell vs. Larry Flynt lawsuit had to be one of the funniest legal cases ever, but had a serious impact on freedom of speech protections for satire benefiting Mad Magazine, National Lampoon, SNL & MAD TV.
