Raving loony Jerry Falwell finally died. He was 73 years old. When he wasn't warning parents that one of the Teletubbies was advocating a gay lifestyle, or blaming "the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians ... the ACLU (and) People for the American Way" for the September 11th attacks, he was working hard as hell to twist the words of Jesus Christ to justify his small-minded, intolerant and bigoted beliefs.
But perhaps the thing that Jerry Falwell will be best remembered for will be the alleged interview that he did for a Campari endorsement campaign published in Hustler magazine in 1983. He and Larry Flynt always claimed that the advertisement was meant as a parody, but considering the crazy things that kept popping out of his mouth over the years, it's hard to be sure.
