Yesterday on tv someone said, "Wherever Jerry Falwell ended up today he's probably surprised."

But let's hope he's not too surprised.

Jerry Falwell knows he deserves eternal damnation of Hell. As do all the people who pretended that he was a decent man, and the hateful and damaging things that he said and did over the years was just business. As if what you say on TV and do behind closed doors isn't you, it's a game, especially if you're wearing a cross on the lapel of your three-piece suit.

Jerry Falwell was a southern man who hated anything that wasn't white, conservative, and giving him money, power, or attention. During Martin Luther King Jr.'s campaign in Selma in the '60s, Falwell called MLK a faker, and just a few years ago he called the National Organization for Women, the National Order of Witches. And the years in between Falwell seemed his best to try twist the bible and the constitution in ways that would benefit his pocket.

If God has the ability to show grace and forgiveness, He's gotta be working overtime today if He is considering admitting someone like Falwell into Paradise.
