Al Mohler on Jerry Falwell

Dr. Mohler has commented on Jerry Falwell's legacy. Agree? Disagree?

I should also note that Brother Tom Ascol wrote a nice tribute on his blog. Apparently some of his Reformed readers were not as kind. In the comments section of his blog, Brother Tom wrote, "I am moderating these comments to avoid letting the ranters have free reign here as they have elsewhere. It is indeed tragic to read vitriolic, hateful words that some are employing to castigate Dr. Falwell in his death."

Oops! I accidently deleted a comment.

I can't remember who posted it but they said that I was wrong in assuming that Tom Ascol was referring to Reformed posters. They said Tom was referring to secularists who are going from blog to blog and trashing Falwell's memory.

To whoever posted: feel free to repost. Sorry about that.

Prior to his death, the Reformed blogs made no qualms about their vehement dislike for Jerry Falwell. Given that fact, I will stand by my comments.

Charles, I made the original comment. I am fairly certain that Ascol's desire to moderate comments was due to the fact that numerous trollers (most of them non-Christian, though some would consider themselves liberal Christians), have been making their rounds through the blogosphere specifically to demean and demonize Falwell. As I noted in my previous comment, you can go to David Kuo's blog at to see examples of this occurring. While Falwell was not a favorite of Reformed bloggers, I think it would be quite a stretch to describe anything previously written about Falwell on the Founders Blog as "vitrolic, hateful words." Thus, it would be even more incredible for one to conclude such would be written of Falwell by Reformed bloggers on the occasion of his death.

But if you remain unconvinced based on what I said and really care to report correct information, maybe you should contact Ascol via email or ask him respectfully and on point in the comments of his blog. I doubt he would ignore or slough off a polite request for clarification.
