Right before I fell asleep last night, I wrote a brilliant post on Falwell's death. It was witty and erudite without being flippant; it was condemnatory without being mean or dismissive; it called him out for his racist, anti-Semitic, evil, small-minded bullshit, without pandering or ad hominem attacks. Unfortunately, my last thought before sleep was, "I should really write this all down." In case you were wondering, I am, in fact, an idiot.
So, instead, let's let my favorite atheist (no, not the Rooster, although he's up there on the list) say it for me:
A hat tip to the Autodidact for the video and to Smeliana for the blog title. Also, for this little gem, "Jerry Falwell's in a better place now, for all of us."
P.S. Anderson Cooper is so very attractive.
