Jerry Falwell has a new saviour / Defenders of the Faith

Apparently, Jerry Falwell has two "saviours" now - Jesus Christ and the Rev. Moon.

A man with long-standing ties to self-proclaimed “messiah” Rev. Sun Myung Moon will soon become the new Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Liberty University, an “independent Baptist” school founded by Jerry Falwell in 1971.
The North Korean businessman and purported “cult leader” funneled $3.5 million dollars to the university through his ”Women’s Federation for World Peace” and the Christian Heritage Foundation run by Falwell friends to help relieve the school’s debts in 1995 reported Robert Parry.
But isn’t Jesus the only messiah for a Baptist minister such as Rev. Jerry Falwell?

It appears Falwell may want a “messiah” with money.

Slavoj Zizek on the "Defenders of the Faith", making a vibrant plead for the recognition of atheism and its contributions to mankind:

This argument couldn't have been more wrong: the lesson of today's terrorism is that if God exists, then everything, including blowing up thousands of innocent bystanders, is permitted — at least to those who claim to act directly on behalf of God, since, clearly, a direct link to God justifies the violation of any merely human constraints and considerations. In short, fundamentalists have become no different than the "godless" Stalinist Communists, to whom everything was permitted since they perceived themselves as direct instruments of their divinity, the Historical Necessity of Progress Toward Communism.

This is really, really big news.

It means that Jerry Falwell has appointed a man who claims to be the messiah to represent him.

It can't mean that Falwell believes that Sun Myung and his wife are co-Jesuses, can it? If he doesn't believe any of it, it means that he's completely and totally evil, or amoral.

Not that any of you support Falwell. But obviously, many, many people do. Are they willing to put their faith in this crazy, crazy man?

...I mean, Moon, not Falwell. Guess I answered my own question.

Fucking parasites.

Oh yeah. If you don't want to put money into the Moon organization, don't eat sushi. Just like the Mafia, he's gone "legit", and he's pretty much cornered the market.

I'm gonna stick out my neck here. If
Sun Myung Moon becomes the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Liberty University, I'll buy a hat and eat it. This smells of urban legend.
