....please please please, let me get what I want.

Maybe it's sick of me to be sitting here praying regarding Falwell's health.

Maybe.

No, I don't really think it is. But I'm willing to accept that I'm being subjective about my own judgement.

Unlike, well...
...Jerry Falwell.

Die, you evil, hateful, fuck. And save Rev. Phelps a seat at the coprophiliac banquet table in Hell, because after so much shit coming out of your mouths in life, eating shit for eternity is clearly what you both oh so richly deserve.
  • (no subject) -
    • I tend to think of life as good enough that nobody currently on the planet is deserving of it. So who am I, undeserving of this gift, to judge another person who's undeserving of the gift?

      But I still want the fucker to drown on his own secretions.
      Slowly.
      • I tend to think of life as good enough that nobody currently on the planet is deserving of it.


        Doesn't that kind of thinking lead to, well, more Jerry Falwells?
        • Only if you neglect the assumption that if life is too good for you and everyone else, then you are in no way entitled to make judgements in contradiction to the Ineffable having seen fit to endow you and everyone else with life...
          that is: life is too great of a gift for you, for me, for him, for her, for them. So who the fuck would I be to decide that you, him, her, them, or I don't deserve to keep it?
          • So, not genocidal, merely incoherent.
            • you asked:
              'doesn't thinking that life is good enough that humanity doesn't deserve it lead to, well, more Jerry Falwells?'

              I responded:
              'Only if you neglect the assumption that if life is too good for you and everyone else, then you are in no way entitled to make judgements in contradiction to the Ineffable having seen fit to endow you and everyone else with life.'

              What that means is:
              Pol Pot (for example) had to choose that he was allowed to choose if a person got to live or die. I'm deciding that no person can morally choose that.

              As a sidebar: if you would like to continue to utilize the ad hominem argument, please do it somewhere other than my journal. That tactic isn't welcome here.
              • It was not an ad hominem. It was, however, a cheap shot, and I apologize. I don't even remember what my point was now.
                • I think the point was that what I said was difficult to parse through. Which was certainly a valid point. ;)
                  • I think I was objecting to passing judgement, condemning oneself via the judgement, and concluding that by virtue of the judgement one is not fit to judge. But I have a terrible headache and could have been objecting to almost anything.
  • Amen.
  • I can't say I'd be sorry to see him go myself.
  • Since he's prayed for your horrible death and eternal damnation (not by name, but by sexual preference and such like) any number of times, I see nothing wrong with praying that he gets what he deserves.

    I'm kind of hoping for long, lingering suffering during which his followers refuse to pull the plug on his life support, while we're at it. And maybe some medication mix-ups.
  • For what it's worth, which I can already gather is basically nothing, I'm, eh, against praying (or indeed, cheerleading) for another person's death.

    It's a general thing, though, and should not be taken as any sort of positive view as to Falwell's value to humanity.

    (I still occasionally get guff about having objected to people griping about Strom Thurmond pulling through on some occasion years ago. What can I tell you? It's just not my bag.)

    -R
  • That icon rules.
  • Similarly, I am hating myself a bit for wanting to hold a candle-snuffing vigil.

    Just a bit.
  • I'd wish for his death, but frankly, the guy's irrelevant now anyway. There's a whole new generation of his hateful ilk, and I'd much rather concentrate my energies on praying for them to die young.

    Is that bad? >:)
  • the irony would be that if he got so sick that the only thing keeping him alive was a feeding tube and his family couldn't let him suffer like that and had his tube removed...
  • The Irony

    Yeah, I'm loving the fact that he may be trapped as a vegetable because they can't let him die and be hypocrites. Because they certainly are not already. See, Reagan got Alheimers, Falwell drools and poops himself. There is a God. ;-) Now what's going to happen to Bush...
  • I bet Tinky-Winky poisoned him with dioxins.
  • y'know, even for somebody as reprehensible as Falwell, I have a hard time ill-wishing. (I can do it, don't get me wrong...)

    Howzabout we hope for a near-death experience after which he claims he's seen the light (literally) and publicly recants and apologizes??
  • What does the article say? It won't load?
