As a native Lynchburger, prayers are going out for Rev. Falwell. He’s one of the city’s most famous sons, and a controversial figure for sure.

I could not have put it any better. I offer my prayers for the Rev. and his family.

Poor Man. I saw him on TV recently and did not think he looked well.

I hope he has a good outcome.

Prayers for healing going up!

I’ve watched some of his sermons on Sunday mornings, and he *is* a man of God, despite how the MSM tries to portray him—prayers that this is not something serious. :*(

I hope this guy is OK. He is the best example of disagreeing without being disagreeable. A real principled man. There was a time I did not agree with him on anything but now I am on his side more than not. God bless you Rev Farwell. I hope you are OK.

I'm praying for him.

I should also say that this is one of the reasons I am "addicted" to FR - you get breaking news here before anywhere else. If you had to wait for the news to be reported on the yahoo or google or aol home page, you'd need a couple of shaves before it appeared. Also, freepers post news stories - legitimate news stories - that don't appear many other places. This site is a national treasure.

But that's all a diversionary thought. Back to Rev. Fallwell. His theology and style don't totally square with mine, but I respect him as a man of backbone, courage, integrity and solid faith. I'm pray for him and his family.

Jerry Falwell has done much to further the cause of Christ, and is an unapologetic American patriot.

Depart, O Christian soul, out of this world;
In the Name of God the Father Almighty who created you;
In the Name of Jesus Christ who redeemed you;
In the Name of the Holy Spirit who sanctifies you.
May your rest be this day in peace,
and your dwelling place in the Paradise of God.

Last I heard, James Kennedy was still in pretty bad shape as well. The social conservatives have lost several key players over the last few months.

Yeah, my first thought too. DUmbies love bad news. I'm sure they're rejoying, but I don't go over there.

Prayers for Rev. Falwell & family.

I've learned firsthand that leftist "Compassion" is just about the biggest crock of s*** there is (next to leftist "intelligence").

Actually MSM is having a pretty respectful story on him. That is the only news channel we get from 1700-2000 and then it goes to Fox News. That is the military for ya. lol.
