Death of a Bigot

Jerry Falwell, US-Fernsehprediger und Begründer der Moral Majority, einer in den 80er Jahren — vor allem in der Republikanischen Partei — extrem einflussreichen homophoben Lobbyorganisation, ist gestern im Alter von 73 Jahren gestorben. Im neuen Millenium machte er u.a. dadurch Schlagzeilen, dass er „die Schwuchteln“ (fags) beschuldigte, den Terroranschlag vom 11. 9. und den Hurrikan Katrina verursacht zu haben. Hier eine Auswahl mehrerer für ihn charakteristischer Zitate:

„The idea that religion and politics don‘t mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country.“

„AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals. To oppose it would be like an Israelite jumping in the Red Sea to save one of Pharoah’s chariotters.“

„It appears that America’s anti-Biblical feminist movement is at last dying, thank God, and is possibly being replaced by a Christ-centered men’s movement which may become the foundation for a desperately needed national spiritual awakening.“

„The ACLU is to Christians what the American Nazi party is to Jews.“

„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!“

„The Bible is the inerrant … word of the living God. It is absolutely infallible, without error in all matters pertaining to faith and practice, as well as in areas such as geography, science, history, etc.“

    Wenn man erklären sollte, was strukturelle Gewalt ist, dann war Jerry Falwell das beste Beispiel. Ich kack auf dein Grab, Mann!

    Schön ist auch die Annonce, die jemand in Wikipedia unter „Moral Majority“ eingestellt hat (Linke siehe oben):

    ATTENTION EVERYONE! There will be a celebration in front of Thomas Road Baptist Church on May 19, 2007 at 1:00PM. The public is cordially invited to attend. Please bring posters and plycards depicting Jerry Falwell in hell (preferably with Jerry being sodomized by Satan or fornicating with his mother). Representatives from the media are especially encouraged to attend. Please help us send Jerry to hell in style! Never forget the hate and venom that spewed from this scumbag’s mouth.
