Breaking News:Televangelist Jerry Falwell Dies at age 73.






Breaking news from CNN:
The Reverend Jerry Falwell has died at age 73 due to heart failure.

A Liberty University officials found him unconscious at 10:45am this morning and he had been taken to a local hospital.

According to CNN, Falwell has missed morning appointments.

Here's some of Falwell's most infamous allegations on 9/11:

In 2001, Falwell had to apologize after televised comments in which he described the September 11, 2001, terrorists attacks as a judgment on America for "throwing God out of the public square."

"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," he said. "I point the finger in their face and say 'You helped this happen.' "

A day later, he told CNN that he would "never blame any human being except the terrorists, and if I left that impression with gays or lesbians or anyone else, I apologize."

Now it's comments like these that really don't have backup, but he was entitle to his opinion.Falwell claim that God was punishing America, which was his personal view, but it was surely not Justice MH's. The way i see it, that claim was ridiculous, and just plain stupid. Falwell's charge against those he clearly didn't like was uncalled for, but he later saw the error in his ways.

No matter how i feel about Jerry Falwell, my heart and prays go out to the Falwell family.

Although the pagans, abortionist, gays, lesbians, sinners, amongst others did not cause 9/11, they are surely causing America to lack morals, principles, and values. Due to this decline to uphold the standards our ancestors strived to maintain from generation to generation, we will disappoint them and disrespect God.
