In the words of Clarence Darrow*...
I've never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure.
I really don't have mixed feelings on this one. This man was the exact opposite of what a Christian should be. He preached hate and bigotry very loudly. I have no respect for him, even when some say they respect that he held very strong beliefs. Just because you "believe" something, doesn't mean you deserve respect.
I know all about believing in something that isn't true. There is no respect from me when what you believe hurts people.
