Falwell's world outlives him

The nasty, overbearing, and aggressively anti-semitic form of Christianity that Falwell preached and practiced lives on:
U.S. Navy veteran David Miller said that when he checked into the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Iowa City, he didn't realize he would get a hard sell for Christian fundamentalism along with treatment for his kidney stones.

Miller, 46, an Orthodox Jew, said he was repeatedly proselytized by hospital chaplains and staff in attempts to convert him to Christianity during three hospitalizations over the past two years.

He said he went hungry each time because the hospital wouldn't serve him kosher food, and the staff refused to contact his rabbi, who could have brought him something to eat.
Imagine refusing food to a medical patient in pain. Imagine refusing to let a patient contact their spiritual guide. Or don't, just read the article. Disgusting.
