Great Moments in Religion

After the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, Reverend Jerry Falwell went on television and said:

The ACLU's got to take a lot of blame for this. And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God or successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this 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".
— Jerry Falwell, The 700 Club, 13 Sept 2001

The hatemonger Reverend Jerry Falwell obviously does not have the brains to comprehend what he is really saying. What Falwell is saying is:

God is angry at America because American women get abortions, and the U.S. Supreme Court won't let Reverend Falwell force schoolchildren to pray the way that Falwell wants them to, and God doesn't like those gays and lesbians, either, or the feminists, pagans, or ACLU members, so the terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center were carrying out The Will Of God, and punishing the American people the way that God wanted them to be punished for their sins.

Thus, Osama Bin Laden and his helpers are all faithful servants of God, seeking and doing the Will of God, just like they claim.

Reverend Falwell can only embrace the terrorists, and love them, and glorify them for being fellow servants of God, men who have dedicated their very lives to Seeking and Doing the Will of God.

We Americans are lucky to have such a wonderful prophet of God as Jerry Falwell to teach us the ways of Jesus, Mohammed, and Allah.

P.S: Years later, Jerry Falwell complained that his famous 9/11 rave was taken out of context. Al Franken said that the only way it could be considered to have been taken out of context was if it were immediately preceded by the words,
"I'd have to be a friggin' nut to say..."
