"Passionate and Restless"?? More like "Pathological and Relentless"

Newsweek describes the late and not lamented Jerry Falwell as "Passionate and Restless"....

I would have chosen different descriptors (including pathological and relentless). Ignorant, deceptive, ill-educated, bigoted, homophobic, femiphobic, unChristian, cronyistic, patronising, antediluvian.... and deeply, deeply offensive as a human being.

Why does the media feel it necessary to haul out the black bunting for the likes of Fallwell? Let this pile of refuse slip quietly into the back pages of history where he should have remained.

Refuse in the guise of a holy man.
