Fallwell's Famous Fallacies
Those of you that know me know that I'm pretty tolerant, however, if there is one type of person that I cannot stand, it is the ignorant, close-minded bigots that force their bullshit ideas on others. There is a serious difference between sharing your ideas and enforcing them. One of the people that does this quite frequently is a man named Jerry Fallwell. The most openly discriminatlve human being I have ever heard, Jerry Fallwell never ceases to amaze me in his audacity and the exent of his hatred. Maybe I dont know what I'm talking about but as a messenger of God, should you be driven by love, and not hate? Doesn't that put you on the same level as Satan or whatever? (Note: I have nothing against Christianity as a religion, just the self-absorbed asshole Christians who misconstrue what the Bible says and shut out the opinions of others) Anyway, here are some of my favorite Fallwell quotes:
The Wit and Wisdom of Jerry Fallwell
- "The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this (the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks) 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. "
- 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.
- "Look at the Metropolitan Community Church today, the gay church, almost accepted into the World Council of Churches. Almost, the vote was against them. But they will try again and again until they get in, and the tragedy is that they would get one vote. Because they are spoken of here in Jude as being brute beasts, that is going to the baser lust of the flesh to live immorally . . . But thank God this vile and satanic system will one day be utterly annihilated and there'll be a celebration in heaven."
- 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!
- I listen to feminists and all these radical gals -- most of them are failures. They've blown it. Some of them have been married, but they married some Casper Milquetoast who asked permission to go to the bathroom. 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.
- "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."
- We're fighting against humanism, we're fighting against liberalism... we are fighting against all the systems of Satan that are destroying our nation today...our battle is with Satan himself.
- If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being.
- There is no separation of church and state. Modern U.S. Supreme Courts have raped the Constitution and raped the Christian faith and raped the churches by misinterpreting what the Founders had in mind in the First Amendment to the Constitution.
- The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country.
- Believing the Bible as I do, I would find it impossible to stop preaching the pure gospel of Jesus Christ and begin doing anything else, including fighting Communism, or participating in civil rights reforms. Preachers are not called to be politicians but to be soul winners. Nowhere are we commissioned to reform the externals.
- 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.
- AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals.
- The decline in American pride, patriotism, and piety can be directly attributed to the extensive reading of so-called 'science fiction' by our young people. This poisonous rot about creatures not of God's making, societies of 'aliens' without a good Christian among them, and raw sex between unhuman beings with three heads and God alone knows what sort of reproductive apparatus keeps our young people from realizing the true will of God.
- ..If we are going to save America and evangelize the world, we cannot accommodate secular philosophies that are diametrically opposed to Christian truth...We need to pull out all the stops to recruit and train 25 million Americans to become informed pro-moral activists whose voices can be heard in the halls of Congress.
- The Jews are returning to their land of unbelief. They are spiritually blind and desperately in need of their Messiah and Savior.
- Because he appears during the Tribulation period, the Antichrist will be a fullgrown counterfeit of Christ. Of course he'll be Jewish.
- You say what's going to happen on this earth when the Rapture occurs? You'll be riding along in an automobile; you'll be the driver, perhaps; you're a Christian; there'll be several people in the automobile with you, maybe someone who is not a Christian. When the trumpet sounds, you and the other born-again Christians in that automobile will be instantly caught away, you'll disappear, leaving behind only your clothing and physical things that cannot inherit eternal life. That unsaved person or persons in the automobile will suddenly be startled to find that the car is moving along without a driver, and suddenly somewhere crashes. Those saved people in the car have disappeared. Other cars on the highway driven by believers will suddenly be out of control. Stark pandemonium will occur on that highway and on every highway in the world where Christians are caught away from the world.
- One of the teletubbies, Tinky Winky, has the voice of a boy but carries a purse. He is purple--the gay pride color; and his antenna is shaped like a triangle--the gay pride symbol. . . . Such subtle depictions are damaging to the moral lives of children."
Hahahahaha...I laugh at the sheer ignorance of some people...
