A fine, upstanding Christian whose heart was full of love has died

In the past 24 hours, a good, solid Christian man, a man who lived, as best as he could, by the words of Jesus as spoken in the Gospels, has died.

A man who would not support a baseless war justified by scare tactics. A man who would not consider an illness a punishment from God. A man who would never dream of trying to link the actions of terrorists to pagans, gays, abortionists, feminists, the ACLU and the People for the American Way.

A man whose concern was spreading of God's love, a man who wanted to see that the hungry get fed, the homeless get sheltered, the sick get cared for, and justice be done throughout all of our society. A man who was an inspiration to all who knew him, and could see the love within him.

Oh, yeah. Jerry Falwell died, too.

The "good Christian man", well, there's a lot of Christians on this planet; it's a statistical certainty that one such person has died in the past 24 hours.

If life were fair, well, you know whose name I think should be praised.

I love you.
