Slate has a compendium of the late Rev. Jerry Falwell's quotes. Get a load of these:

On Sept. 11: "The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. 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—I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen.' "

On Martin Luther King Jr.: "I must personally say that I do question the sincerity and nonviolent intentions of some civil rights leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mr. James Farmer, and others, who are known to have left-wing associations."

On Martin Luther King Jr., four decades later: "You know, I supported Martin Luther King Jr., who did practice civil disobedience."

On feminists: "I listen to feminists and all these radical gals. ... These women just need a man in the house. That's all they need. Most of the feminists need a man to tell them what time of day it is and to lead them home. And they blew it and they're mad at all men. Feminists hate men. They're sexist. They hate men; that's their problem."

What an ass.

I was reading these aloud to Nick and got to, "Most of the feminists need a man to tell them what time of day it is and to--" And I had to stop, because my eyes had gotten to the end of the sentence so I knew how bad it was going to get, and I had to make that "Woo" noise I make when I read something is just incredibly awful and evil, and in this case, I made it quite emphatically. WOW. That is so bad. What a terrible sad man, what an awful legacy. To have people actually be happy that you're dead.

Oh, and Salon has an interview with Tinky Winky on the passing of Jerry Falwell. Funny.
