Paul Weyrich tried to found the political religious right in the '70s around porn, school prayer, the ERA, and abortion. "I was trying to get these people interested in those issues and I utterly failed," he said. Then he found something that worked: Fighting for racial segregation.

Happy 9/11 From Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson

Ken Layne · 09/11/13 08:00AM

There are many iconic video moments from the horror of 9/11, but nobody said "we deserved it" as clearly as these two patriots, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. The TV duo immediately blamed the terrorist attacks on: the American Civil Liberties Union, the U.S. federal courts, the Christian God, pagans, abortionists, feminists, male and female homosexuals, and a liberal non-profit called People for the American Way.

Jerry Falwell Died Broke

Poor Jerry Falwell. The compassionate Christian, lover of all of God's wonderful creatures except for filthy sodomites and fake purple aliens who carry purses (looking at you, Lily Tomlin), apparently died penniless. Though the right-wing evangelist raised hundreds of millions of tear-soaked dollars from his devoted parishioners, the stupid fat fuck lost his own personal stake in the funds after he invested in a planned community called Liberty Village. The crazypants Christian town/last stand fall back point for the inevitable holy war was perched high atop a mountain in Virginia and included something called a "clubhouse." No one wanted to live there because, in actual real life, people like to have kinky sex and smoke pot and watch French art films and don't really want to do that in Falwell Acres. The abandoned hamlet is now used for SWAT team practice. Hope the weather's nice down there, Jer. [NYDN]
