Jerry Falwell is Dead, Let the Pandering Begin . . . .

. . . . But not here.

At On Faith (the fledgling enterprise by Jon Meacham and Washington Post VP Ben Bradlee's wife, Sally Quinn), R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, prostrates himself before the memory of one of the most hateful, ignorant, divisive, un-Christlike unAmericans who ever lived. Mohler writes, "The death of Dr. Jerry Falwell..."

Wait a minute, Dr Jerry Falwell?? Already the lies begin.

Falwell held no earned doctorate. He held three honorary degrees: an honorary Doctor of Divinity from Tennessee Temple Theological Seminary (now known as Tennessee Baptist Seminary), an honorary Doctor of Letters from California Graduate School of Theology (an unaccredited institution), and an honorary Doctor of Laws from Central University in Seoul, South Korea (an unaccredited institution).1
Undoubtedly the media will fall into ecstasy for the next couple of days, waxing eloquent about Falwell's life, but here readers get the spit-varnished Falwell.
