  1. Wait, I missed something the first time I watched the clip… what was that last thing Christopher said?? “If you gave Falwell an enema he’d be buried…….. ”

    ????

    it was probably good, whatever he said.

  2. Niel – I believe it was “If you gave Falwell an enema he’d be burried in a matchbox” or words to that effect

  3. i think it’s funny that hannity is insisting that respect be shown for the dead…all of them…even though they have no problem insulting dead historical figures like stalin, hitler, etc.
    the republicans don’t get to pick and choose the people that are allowed or are not allowed to be disparaged in death.
    you either take that line with EVERY dead person, or you keep your frickin’ mouth shut.

  4. Since “God is the God of the living” (as Christ answered the pharisees Mark 12:27 & Matt 22:32) and not of the dead, then there’s no sense in respecting the dead. If one is with God even though their flesh is gone, then they’re alive. If they’re not with God then why respect them?

  5. I thought the most relevant point in the whole discussion was Hitchens response to hannity’s assertion that you can’t deny he’s done good things. Hitchens said something to the efect that then you must also give Hamas and others credence for similar acts which is obviously absurd (which of course was his point).

  6. If the question “was he worse than Pol Pot?” is used in determining whether a person lived a good life or not, you’re setting the standard a little fuckin’ low…

    Thoughtless, crude and mean — if you’d say that about Falwell, you’d be charitable.

    For an extended bit of insanity — have any of you read this Ann Coulter article: “Say Hello to Ronald Reagan”?

    “No man in the last century better illustrated Jesus’ warning that “All men will hate you because of me” than the Rev. Jerry Falwell, who left this world on Tuesday. Separately, no man better illustrates my warning that it doesn’t pay to be nice to liberals.

    Falwell was a perfected Christian. He exuded Christian love for all men, hating sin while loving sinners. This is as opposed to liberals, who just love sinners. Like Christ ministering to prostitutes, Falwell regularly left the safe confines of his church to show up in such benighted venues as CNN.”

  7. My God, I read 3 of that woman’s articles and I had to close the window. Her hypocrisies within each column were making me angry.
