    Although I am a part of the gay miniority which Reverend Falwell demonized throughout his life, I do not rejoice in his sudden passing. The emotion that hit me on hearing of his death was actually one of pity.
    Unfortunately Reverend Falwell’s ministry was characterized as a theology of hate, rather than one of love and understanding. When speaking to his flock on the wickedness of homosexuality, he always admonished them to, “hate the sin but not the sinner”. There is absolutely no logic in a stance where hate itself becomes part of the formula.
    I think Rev. Falwell found it so easy to judge and hate others becuase he never made any real effort to meet with or reach out to the gay community. He, like most other evangelic ministers, made judgements not based on knowlege but on ignorance and prejudice.
    A Christian theology of love has to begin with the philosophy that all people are God’s cherrished children and are thus deserving of His love. We are all made in the image of a loving God. The Bible states, “Those who say I love God but hate their brothers and sisters are liars. For those who do not love a brother or sister they have seen, cannot love a God whom they have not seen”. (1 John 4:19-20)
    I pray that Reverend Falwell rests in peace. Perhaps by now viewing the face of God, he will be empowered in heaven to celebrate the love and tolerance which he failed to embrace on earth.

    If only the world could see things as graciously. 🙂

    It now looks like he was reaching out to the gay community every time he shook hands with Reverend Ted.

    There’s a bit of a rorschach there. The cartoon does not “celebrate” Falwell’s passing. If anything, I think it makes the point that the children will still be there long after Mr. Falwell is gone, no matter what he might have said about them.
