Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Nothing of Eternal Value is ever accomplished apart from prayer. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

People have accused me of many things: racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, intolerance, anti-Darwinism and anti-homosexualism [sic]. Well, I tell those people that there was someone else who was accused of things ... our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I rest my case. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

During the last times, men will be lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. When you think of our sports-driven society, and our media-driven society, and our leisure-driven society, then you understand we are living in the last days. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I am convinced that America can be turned around if we will all get serious about the Master's business. It may be late, but it is never too late to do what is right. We need an old-fashioned, God-honoring, Christ-exalting revival to turn American back to God. America can be saved! — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Frank Schaeffer

Dad and I were mixing with a new set of people who had not known much, if anything, about my father. If they had even heard of Dad before he came on the pro-life scene in the mid-to-late seventies, they probably hadn't liked the sound of him. These people included Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, James Dobson, James Kennedy, and all the rest of the televangelists, radio hosts, and other self-appointed "Christian leaders" who were bursting on the scene in the 1970s and early '80s. Compared — Frank Schaeffer

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

The First Amendment is not without limits. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Christopher Hitchens

Now is as good a time as ever to revisit the history of the Crusades, or the sorry history of partition in Kashmir, or the woes of the Chechens and Kosovars. But the bombers of Manhattan represent fascism with an Islamic face, and there's no point in any euphemism about it. What they abominate about 'the West,' to put it in a phrase, is not what Western liberals don't like and can't defend about their own system, but what they do like about it and must defend: its emancipated women, its scientific inquiry, its separation of religion from the state. Loose talk about chickens coming home to roost is the moral equivalent of the hateful garbage emitted by Falwell and Robertson, and exhibits about the same intellectual content. — Christopher Hitchens

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell Jr.

I really believe that anybody on the Left or the Right that tries to invoke the teachings of Jesus to say they should vote for this candidate or that candidate, I think they're stretching Scripture. — Jerry Falwell Jr.

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell Jr.

Matthew 7:16 tells us that by their fruits you shall know them. Donald Trump's life has borne fruit, fruit that has provided jobs to multitudes of people in addition to the many he has helped with his generosity. — Jerry Falwell Jr.

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I believe that global warming is a myth. And so, therefore, I have no conscience problems at all and I'm going to buy a Suburban next time. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

We will see a breakdown of the family and family values if we decide to approve same-sex marriage, and if we decide to establish homosexuality as an acceptable alternative lifestyle with all the benefits that go with equating it with the heterosexual lifestyle. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Other cars on the highway driven by believers will suddenly be out of control and stark pandemonium will occur on ... every highway in the world where Christians are caught away from the drivers wheel. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell Jr.

It's not our job to choose the best Sunday school teacher, like Jimmy Carter was. It's our job to choose who would defend and protect our nation, who would be the best president. — Jerry Falwell Jr.

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Kill them all in the Name of the Lord. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Richard Dawkins

Listen to the Reverend Jerry Falwell, founder of Liberty University: 'AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals.'121 — Richard Dawkins

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

You'll be riding along in an automobile. You'll be the driver perhaps. You're a Christian. There'll be several people in the automobile with you, maybe someone who is not a Christian. When the trumpet sounds you and the other born-again believers in that automobile will be instantly caught away - you will disappear, leaving behind only your clothes and physical things that cannot inherit eternal life. That unsaved person or persons in the automobile will suddenly be startled to find the car suddenly somewhere crashes ... — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I hope to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we don't have public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Dennis Miller

Jerry Falwell says that abortion and homosexuality are sins. Oh yeah? Well, so is gluttony, Jerry. So maybe you should think about dropping 50 pounds. — Dennis Miller

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

The ACLU is to Christians what the American Nazi party is to Jews. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

The Bible is a love story. Time and time again it illustrates how much God loves the world in spite of its sinful disobedience...The last book of the Bible, the Revelation of St John the Divine, creates a beautiful and yet terrifying picture of those last days when God will reveal Himself in judgment and in grace to all creation. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Tim Kaine

When Democrats kind of cavalierly attack the religious right or go after Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell, our candidates have sent the signal to a lot of religious people, 'Well, I guess they are not interested in me.' And I think this includes a lot of people who would fit very naturally within the Democratic Party. — Tim Kaine

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Homosexuality is Satan's diabolical attack upon the family that will not only have a corrupting influence upon our next generation, but it will also bring down the wrath of God upon America. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

If I were doing something that the Bible condemns, I have two choices. I can straighten up my act, or I can somehow distort and twist and change the meaning of the Bible. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell Jr.

In my opinion, Donald Trump lives a life of loving and helping others as Jesus taught in the great commandment. He cannot be bought; he's not a puppet on a string like many other candidates ... who have wealthy donors as their puppet masters. — Jerry Falwell Jr.

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

If he's going to be the counterfeit of Christ, the Antichrist has to be Jewish. The only thing we know is he must be male and Jewish. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Most of these feminists are radical, frustrated lesbians, many of them, and man-haters, and failures in their relationships with men, and who have declared war on the male gender. The biblical condemnation of feminism has to do with its radical philosophy and goals. That's the bottom line. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I think the Moslem faith teaches hate. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I sincerely believe that the collective efforts of many secularists during the past generation, resulting in the expulsion from our schools and from the public square, has left us vulnerable. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Our greatest value is to reproduce ourselves in the lives of others. When you leave behind a vibrant Christian who knows his calling and his commission, you can be buried, but you will live on through all those in whom you have been reproduced. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Charles Colson

Some labeled Jerry Falwell an American version of the Ayatollah Khomeni. People for the American Way, a group organized to counter the Moral Majority, launched a slick media campaign attaching the Nazi slur to the religious right. — Charles Colson

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

This is probably as bad a day as the court has had on social issues since "Roe v Wade." — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I don't think religious groups should be allowed to apply for federal funds to start new ministries they have not been doing before the funding was available. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By D.G. Hart

From the vantage of a mid-1970's consensus that regarded the United States as having entered a post-Protestant era, the rise of a Religious Right dominated not only by Protestants but by fundamentalists was not the way the story was supposed to go. People like Jerry Falwell looked like party crashers who, rather than slikinking from bar to buffet in hopes of going unnoticed, demanded that the vegetarian, alcohol-imbibing hosts serve meat and tell the bartender to go home. — D.G. Hart

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell Jr.

Jesus said, 'Judge not, lest ye be judged.' Let's stop trying to choose the political leaders who we believe are the most godly because, in reality, only God knows people's hearts. You and I don't, and we are all sinners. — Jerry Falwell Jr.

Falwell Quotes By Robert H. Schuller

I was never close to Jerry Falwell because he had his ministry, I had mine. And we came from different theological training and from a different psychological education. — Robert H. Schuller

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Christians, like slaves and soldiers, ask no questions. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jonathan Falwell

Those of us who follow Jesus Christ must seriously commit to praying for our leaders, never forgetting that even our greatest heroes are flawed individuals who need Jesus Christ, just like the rest of us. — Jonathan Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jonathan Falwell

While the Christian message is increasingly becoming less acceptable in fashionable society, we must be always living according to Scripture and prepared to be apologists for Jesus Christ in all aspects of our lives. — Jonathan Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Nina Easton

A desire to rescue secular America from fallen grace has driven conservative evangelicals at least since the 1970s, when Jerry Falwell formed the Moral Majority as a vehicle for conservative Christians to muscle their way into national politics. — Nina Easton

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell Jr.

In politics, sometimes the best measure of success is the reaction of your enemies. — Jerry Falwell Jr.

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell Jr.

I am proud to offer my endorsement of Donald J. Trump for President of the United States. He is a successful executive and entrepreneur, a wonderful father, and a man who I believe can lead our country to greatness again. — Jerry Falwell Jr.

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I really believe that the pagans and the abortionists and the feminists and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way, all of them who try to secularize America ... I point the finger in their face and say you helped this happen. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jonathan Falwell

I believe prayer for our nation has never been more important as we witness an accelerating anti-Christian fervor in the so-called mainstream of our culture. — Jonathan Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I do not believe we can blame genetics for adultery, homosexuality, dishonesty and other character flaws. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I feel most ministers who claim they've heard God's voice are eating too much pizza before they go to bed at night, and it's really an intestinal disorder, not a revelation. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Jews can make more money accidentally than you can on purpose, — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By James Marsters

One of the best things about humans is we recognize patterns, so we get things like science, music, philosophy. One of the worst things is that we see patterns that are not there so we get things like racism, homophobia and Jerry Falwell. — James Marsters

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Look at the Metropolitan Community Church today, the gay church, almost accepted into the World Council of Churches. Almost, the vote was against them. But they will try again and again until they get in, and the tragedy is that they would get one vote. Because they are spoken of here in Jude as being brute beasts, that is going to the baser lust of the flesh to live immorally, and so Jude describes this as apostasy. But thank God this vile and satanic system will one day be utterly annihilated and there'll be a celebration in heaven. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Nothing will motivate conservative evangelical Christians to vote Republican in the 2008 presidential election more than a Democratic nominee named Hillary Rodham Clinton - not even a run by the devil himself ... I certainly hope that Hillary is the candidate. She has $300 million so far. But I hope she's the candidate. Because nothing will energize my [constituency] like Hillary Clinton. If Lucifer ran, he wouldn't. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I believe that all of us are born heterosexual, physically created with a plumbing that's heterosexual, and created with the instincts and desires that are basically, fundamentally, heterosexual. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Civil rights for all Americans, black, white, red, yellow, the rich, poor, young, old, gay, straight, et cetera, is not a liberal or a conservative value. It's an American value that I would think that we pretty much all agree on. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

When you have a godly husband, a godly wife, children who respect their parents and who are loved by their parents, who provide for those children their physical and spiritual and material needs, lovingly, you have the ideal unit. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Lewis Black

Jerry Falwell said that the reason that September 11th happened, the reason that God allowed it to happen, was because of certain people in our country. People like, and I'm quoting, 'the pagans,' which is a motorcycle group. Feminists; he brought up feminists. [ ... ] And I couldn't believe it, he said that God had actually talked to him and said, these were the people. That was the reason. It was those people, and that was the reason God allowed this to happen. And I thought, 'That's odd.' Because God had called me twelve hours before, and He said the reason He was upset was because of people like Jerry Falwell. — Lewis Black

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

And, these Islamic fundamentalists, these radical terrorists, these Middle Eastern monsters are committed to destroying the Jewish nation, driving her into the Mediterranean, conquering the world. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Ronald Steel

Television has changed how we choose our leaders. It elected Ronald Reagan and a host of Kennedy-look-alike congressmen with blow-dried hair and gleaming teeth. It destroyed Senator Joe McCarthy by showing him in action and it created Jerry Falwell. — Ronald Steel

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I believe that the people of Israel are the chosen people of God. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Beth Bailey

A Nation of Outsiders is smart, insightful, and politically astute. Grace Hale's analysis of the 'romance of the outsider' is necessary reading for anyone who has ever wondered about the meaning of our national obsession with 'authenticity'-as well as for anyone who might be curious about what Jerry Falwell and Holden Caulfield have in common. — Beth Bailey

Falwell Quotes By Rand Paul

The biggest thing I've learned from my dad is he's had adoring crowds of 8,000 at Berkeley, and 6,000 at Jerry Falwell's Liberty University. That's an amazing feat to have people coming out in one of the most liberal universities and one of the most conservative. — Rand Paul

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell Jr.

I believe we all have the right as private citizens to endorse candidates and participate in the political process. — Jerry Falwell Jr.

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I don't think I know a Scientologist except when I see one or two of their actors on the Hollywood screen. — Jerry Falwell

garbage in, garbage out. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

My father was an agnostic. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Nothing of spiritual significance comes without sacrifice. Your spirituality will always be measured by the size of your sacrifice. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I'm glad now, at age 66, that I never used alcohol or tobacco ... I've buried a lot of friends who used tobacco or alcohol. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

God himself preserved the Bible, and brought it down through the ages. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Kevin Roose

I realized how naive I was. My aunt Tina was right: this stuff does exist, and it does hurt people, and although there are lots of people at Liberty who condemn violence against gays
including Dr. Falwell himself
the number of students who want to give them the Goliath treatment isn't zero. In fact, the number who live in my room isn't zero. — Kevin Roose

Falwell Quotes By Richard Dawkins

You go after crude, rabble-rousing chancers like Ted Haggard, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, rather than sophisticated theologians like Tillich or Bonhoeffer who teach the sort of religion I believe in. — Richard Dawkins

Falwell Quotes By Mel White

During my time in the entourages of Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, I never saw either of them attack and punish those who disagree, as Dobson does on a regular basis. — Mel White

Falwell Quotes By Ellen Willis

While liberals appeared to be safely in power, feminists could perhaps afford the luxury of defining Larry Flynt or Roman Polanski as Enemy Number One. Now that we have to cope with Jerry Falwell and Jesse Helms, a rethinking of priorities seems in order. — Ellen Willis

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Textbooks are Soviet propaganda. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Your words can permanently influence a life. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I grew up in the segregated South, right here in Lynchburg, Virginia. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

One thing I have learned about Christians, having organized them for years - when they lose, they quit. And when they win they quit. We are just quitters. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jonathan Falwell

Our President has given symbolic support to the National Day of Prayer but I believe that our nation needs an impassioned call to our collective knees. — Jonathan Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

We're fighting against humanism, we're fighting against liberalism ... we are fighting against all the systems of Satan that are destroying our nation today ... our battle is with Satan himself. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Mickey Rooney

I hear Jerry Falwell every Sunday here talking about the devil and Hollywood ... I'm gonna write him a letter. Hollywood wasn't built on filth and dirt - it was built on talent. — Mickey Rooney

Falwell Quotes By Christopher Hitchens

[On Jerry Falwell] No, and I think it's a pity there isn't a hell for him to go to ... The empty life of this ugly little charlatan proves only one thing: that you can get away with the most extraordinary offenses to morality and to truth in this country if you'll just get yourself called Reverend. Who would, even at your network, have invited on such a little toad to tell us that the attacks of September 11th were the result of our sinfulness and were God's punishment if they hadn't got some kind of clerical qualification. People like that should be out in the street, shouting and hollering with a cardboard sign and selling pencils from a cup. — Christopher Hitchens

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

If we ever opened a meeting with a prayer, silent or otherwise, we would disintegrate. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I must personally say that I do question the sincerity and nonviolent intentions of some civil rights leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mr. James Farmer, and others, who are known to have left-wing associations. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Peter McWilliams

The laws against public nudity make no sense. The idea that Jerry Falwell can go topless while Cindy Crawford cannot is an absolute affront to logic, common sense and the 5000 year human struggle for aesthetic taste. — Peter McWilliams

Falwell Quotes By Marilyn Manson

When I turned about 14, I developed a friendship with this guy whose mom was the secretary to Ernest Angley, the faith healer, who's very popular in the Midwest. He had a television show, and he was sort of like Liberace mixed with Jerry Falwell - very glitzy, very high-tech. — Marilyn Manson

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell Jr.

Jesus said, 'Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's,' and part of that was to go to war, protecting whatever nation was under control of the king. I wouldn't agree with any interpretation of Scripture that was used to say that a man or a woman shouldn't protect their families. — Jerry Falwell Jr.

Falwell Quotes By Tom Petty

Gypsies at home watching Jerry Falwell on TV, might mean something to you, it ain't nothing to me. — Tom Petty

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I work 6:00 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

It appears that America's anti-Biblical feminist movement is at last dying, thank God, and is possibly being replaced by a Christ-centered men's movement which may become the foundation for a desperately needed national spiritual awakening. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Love is commitment; love is a relationship that never gives up. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Pat Robertson

My friend Jerry Falwell was the one who said it, and he was a guest on my show, and it's hard to take the blame for everybody who shows up on your show. — Pat Robertson

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Leftist organizations are aggressively attempting to redefine America in their own Godless image. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

I do not believe the homosexual community deserves minority status. One's misbehavior does not qualify him or her for minority status. Blacks, Hispanics, women, etc., are God-ordained minorities who do indeed deserve minority status. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Wendy Kaminer

Jerry Falwell knows who caused the terrorist attack on America: the ACLU. "The ACLU's got to take a lot of blame for this," he declared on the 700 Club, because, he explained, the ACLU, abetted by the federal courts is responsible for "throwing God out of the public square (and) the public schools."This is a familiar charge and a false one. God is still present in the public schools, where students are free to pray, alone or in groups, so long as their prayers aren't officially sponsored and don't infringe on anyone's freedom not to pray. — Wendy Kaminer

Falwell Quotes By Jonathan Falwell

It is time that conservative people of faith jointly commit to praying for our nation (daily, fervently!) and also rise up hand in hand in an effort to raise up a new generation of Franklins and Washingtons and Lincolns and Reagans. — Jonathan Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

There is no separation of church and state. Modern US Supreme Courts have raped the Constitution and raped the Christian faith and raped the churches by misinterpreting what the Founders had in mind in the First Amendment to the Constitution. — Jerry Falwell

Falwell Quotes By Christopher Hitchens

It's a curious thing in American life that the most abject nonsense will be excused if the utterer can claim the sanction of religion. A country which forbids an established church by law is prey to any denomination. The best that can be said is that this is pluralism of a kind. — Christopher Hitchens

Falwell Quotes By Jerry Falwell

Billy Graham is the chief servant of Satan in America. — Jerry Falwell
