Falwell is dead.

He was the father of the moral majority, a hater of (gay!) teletubbies, a lover of apartheid, a rampant, unrepentant homophobe, and a racist, sexist, prejudiced pig.

Not that I like to speak ill of the dead. But I certainly won't miss him.

As Shannon O'Connor of Atlanta, Georgia comments on CNN.com:

As a committed Christian, I think Falwell's legacy can already be seen in the negative attitudes so many people have toward Christianity. His intolerance and hate-filled rhetoric drove people away from God, rather than drawing them closer. I know that wasn't his intent, but you know what they say about good intentions.
