Remembering Falwell

More

A fitting tribute:

I don't know what history will deem to be Falwell's greatest legacy. For me, it will always be his Institute of Biblical Studies a videotape home Bible college he touted as the "finest biblical studies program ever developed." Years ago, I bought the video course "just four easy payments, all major credit cards accepted" and, for fun, I completed it, earning the diploma.

The many biblical lessons I learned included: 1) there were dinosaurs on Noah's ark and they "took up as much space as they wanted"; and 2) Jesus advocated the death penalty: "If ever there was a platform to cry out against capital punishment, our Lord had it on the cross." No kidding.

Hitch says what a Christian cannot here.
