Looks like Jerry Falwell may have forgotten to say his prayers recently. The 71-year-old founder of the “Moral Majority” was hospitalized a month ago with pneumonia only to wind up back there again today after developing breathing difficulties that had him listed in critical condition. Doctors have him on a ventilator and his condition has stabilized for the moment.
Falwell is another one of those people that I won’t be all that upset for when they finally find out whether they were right in their beliefs about God. The fact that he’s stuck around this long spewing out the venom and hatred that he has for so long while trying to undermine the principles this country was founded on is just one more bit of proof to me that there is no God. I find it hard to imagine that any just and self-respecting God would tolerate some of the crap Falwell has tried to pull while claiming it’s what God wants.
Still, my cynical side tells me that Falwell will probably recover from his recent bouts with illness so he can carry on being the pustule on humanity’s ass for several more years to come.
