Jerry Falwell, RIP

Jerry Falwell and I had almost nothing in common. He used his pulpit and position to create celebrity-not to help the downtrodden-but for his own selfish reasons (creating a televangelist empire). He said many hurtful, hateful things in public. He is not someone whom I'd consider worthy of emulation.

Yet still, he is a fellow human being and I pray he rest in peace.

Universal Spirit, may all souls who come before You be granted mercy and may all come to deeply understand their good acts and their bad acts, and the consequences of each. --NDM
