Well, when the Westpboro Baptist Church says that someone's going to burn in hell, you can't say that they don't follow through.
The WBC will be protesting Falwell's death. From their press release:
WBC to picket the funeral of Rev. Jerry Falwell - at Thomas Road Baptist Church, Lynchburg, Virginia - in religious protest and warning: "God is not mocked!" Gal. 6:7. God Hates Fags! & Fag-Enablers! Ergo, God hates Jerry Falwell, Billy Graham, Pat Robertson, and all such Arminian heretic preachers - from the fundamentalist evangelicals to openly gay Episcopalians and pedophile Catholics - all of whom have created the Satanic Sodomite Zeitgeist wherein America has irreversibly gone the way of Sodom.
There is little doubt that Falwell split Hell wide open the instant he died. The evidence is compelling, overwhelming, and irrefragable. To wit:
1. Falwell was a true Calvinistic Baptist when he was a young preacher in Springfield Missouri; and sold his soul to Free-Willism (Arminianism) for lucre.
2. Falwell bitterly and viciously attacked WBC because of WBC's faithful Bible preaching - thereby committing the unpardonable sin - otherwise known as the sin gainst the Holy Ghost.
3. Falwell warmly praised Christ-rejecting Jews, pedophile-condoning Catholics, money-grubbing compromisers, practicing fags like Mel White, and backsliders like Billy Graham and Robert Schuler, Etc. All for lucre - making him guilty of their sins.
I asked before who they get to do their signs, now I'm wondering who's doing their copy editing.
While I'm not God and therefore unable to actually condemn people to Hell, nor do I have the arrogance of the WBC to pretend like I know what actually happens to individual people after death, I wouldn't really say that Falwell was part of the "Sodomite Zeitgeist". I would hope that he wasn't responsible for creating any zeitgeist, but I'm pretty sure he wasn't behind the sodomite one.
