AS AN AFRICAN-American, I saw nothing spiritual about Jerry Falwell.

He once advocated segregation and denounced the Martin Luther King holiday. How can a person be a spiritual leader and be so insensitive and arrogant to those who are disenfranchised?

Falwell was famous for using the name of Jesus, but he contradicted the image of Jesus as he blamed the infamous Sept. 11 attacks on liberal-minded individuals who advanced civil and human rights.
