Jerry Falwell passes away.

Jerry was one of the most vocal people on the right for Christian morality for about two decades. Being a public figure who stepped on the raw nerves of the Left, it was guaranteed that every awkward point of his character would be put on display with the good. We all have our faults.

Since he started the Moral Majority in the 1970's, America has continued its march to establish depravity as America's national religion. One shudders to think where we would be today if there had not been leaders who stood up against the theologians and intellectuals who relentlessly push Christian morality out of as many lives as possible, while steadfastly insisting they are the representatives of Christian morality.

Falwell re-branded himself as an Evangelical later on, while sticking to solid Christian values.
The Left too is trying to re-brand as Evangelicals, leading for quite a wide spectrum of opinions within the scope of Evangelical. It will be interesting to see how things develop in the future as this group is not likely to remain harmonious.
