Jerry Falwell (The Devil's Best Friend)

The first casualty when war comes is truth..
Hiram Johnson, 1917

The books that the world calls immoral are the books 
that show the world it's own shame.
Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

Restriction of free thought and free speech is the 
most dangerous of all subversions.  It is the one 
un-American act that could most easily defeat us.
Justice William O. Douglas

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep 
repeating it people will eventually come 
to believe it." 
-- Joseph Goebbels 

"Every good Christian ought to kick [Jerry] Falwell 
right in the ass." ---Barry Goldwater 

9-11 God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve. Rev. Jerry Falwell, blaming civil libertarians, feminists, homosexuals, and abortion rights supporters for the terrorist attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, to which Rev. Pat Robertson agreed, quoted from John F. Harris, "God Gave U.S. 'What We Deserve,' Falwell Says," The Washington Post (September 14, 2001) And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, 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." Rev. Jerry Falwell The ACLU's got to take a lot of blame for this. -- Rev. Jerry Falwell, blaming civil libertarians for the terrorist attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, to which Rev. Pat Robertson again agreed, quoted from AANEWS #958 by American Atheists (September 14, 2001) I sincerely believe that the collective efforts of many secularists during the past generation, resulting in the expulsion from our schools and from the public square, has left us vulnerable. -- Rev. Jerry Falwell, after the 700 Club broadcast wherein he had blamed civil libertarians, feminists, homosexuals, and abortion rights supporters for the terrorist attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, speaking to The New York Times, quoted from Dick Meyer, "Holy Smoke," CBS News (September 15, 2001) Alcoholism and Negroes
"There are almost as many alcoholics as there 
are negroes."
Rev. Jerry Falwell

America's Condition
"I do not believe the Republicans or the Democrats 
have the solution to America's moral and spiritual 
dilemma. Only a pervasive and national spiritual 
awakening can prevent us entering the 
post-Christian era as we go simultaneously into 
the 21st century. I believe America is in 
imminent peril. We are rotting from within.
Rev. Jerry Falwell
"Rebuilding America's Walls," 7/6/97 

"Somewhere in the past generation,
we've lost our biblical mind and not arranged 
something better in its place. 
We need a spiritual brainwashing,"
Jerry Falwell

Church and State
"The idea of separation of Church and State 
was invented by the Devil to keep Christians 
from running their own country."
Rev. Jerry Falwell

Jerry would know.....

Feminist (You know..Our mothers & sisters)
"I listen to feminists and all these radical 
gals - most of them are failures. They've blown it. 
Some of them have been married, but they married 
some Casper Milquetoast who asked permission 
to go to the bathroom. These women just need a man 
in the house. That's all they need. Most of the 
feminists need a man to tell them what time of day 
it is and to lead them home. And they blew it 
and they're mad at all men. Feminists hate men. 
They're sexist. They hate men - that's their 
Rev. Jerry Falwell

I do not believe the homosexual community deserves 
minority status. One's misbehavior does not qualify 
him or her for minority status. Blacks, Hispanics, 
women, etc., are God-ordained minorities who do indeed 
deserve minority status. 
Rev. Jerry Falwell, USA Today Chat, quoted from The 
Religious Freedom Coalition, "The Two faces of 
Jerry Falwell"

How The Christian Right Can Help
" Our crowd needs to get into the battle, 
keep their mouths shut and help this man win"
Rev. Jerry Falwell

Human Failure
If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure 
as a human being.
Rev. Jerry Falwell 

"I know a few of you here today don't like Jews.  
And I know why.  He can make more money accidentally 
than you can on purpose.
Rev. Jerry Falwell

The Jews are returning to their land of unbelief. 
They are spiritually blind and desperately in need of 
their Messiah and Savior.
Jerry Falwell, Listen, America!

Martin Luther King
"I do question the sincerity and non-violent 
intentions of some civil rights leaders such as
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mr. James Farmer, and
others, who are known to have left-wing associations. 
Rev. Jerry Falwell

Grown men should not be having sex with prostitutes unless 
they are married to them.
Jerry Falwell, on CNN's Crossfire, May 17, 1997

Mohammed the Terrorist
"I think Mohammed was a terrorist. 
I read enough of the history of his life. 
He was a violent man, a man of war. 
Jesus set the example for love, as did Moses. 
And I think Mohammed set an opposite example."
Rev. Jerry Falwell

Our Destruction
"We are on the brink of our destruction, and if we do 
not awaken now, it will be too late. We have been victimized 
by traitorous behavior on the part of our leaders."
Rev. Jerry Falwell

(The interesting part here is that Mr. Falwell's hatred for
Democrats is well known.  This quote came at the end of 
12 years of republican rule.  George Bush Sr. was president
at the time.)  

Politics and Religion
The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented 
by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own 
Rev. Jerry Falwell, Sermon, July 4, 1976

Public Schools
I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of 
our country, we won't have any public schools. The churches 
will have taken them over again and Christians will be 
running them. What a happy day that will be!
Rev. Jerry Falwell, America Can Be Saved, 
1979 pp. 52-53, from Albert J. 
Menendez and Edd Doerr, The Great Quotations on 
Religious Freedom

Supreme Court
"Modern U.S. Supreme Courts have raped the Constitution and 
raped the Christian faith and raped the churches by 
misinterpreting what the founders had in mind in 
the First Amendment of the Constitution... [W]e must fight 
against those radical minorities who are trying to remove 
God from our textbooks, Christ from our nation. We must 
never allow our children to forget that this is a Christian 
nation. We must take back what is rightfully ours." 
Jerry Falwell, March 1993 sermon 

"He is purple - the gay-pride colour; and his antenna 
is shaped like a triangle - the gay-pride symbol." 
Rev. Jerry Falwell

"As a Christian I feel that role modelling the gay lifestyle 
is damaging to the moral lives of children." 
Rev. Jerry Falwell

Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and Usama bin Laden have a lot in common. 
Take the quiz and see if you can identify statements 
by each of these "leaders."
