Remembering Jerry Falwell
Funeral services for Rev. Jerry Falwell are planned for Tuesday in Lynchburg, Virginia.
However before sending him away, Falwell advocates like Liberty University's Ron Godwin would like to recognize his accomplishments. "He was a man of great optimism and great faith. He has left instructions for those of us who have to carry on and we will carry out that charge faithfully," says Godwin.
Falwell founded the school in 1971. It was originally called Lynchburg Baptist College.
Falwell was the conservative founder of the Moral Majority. Some say this group was partly responsible for electing Reagan in 1980. His social message always included strong stances against abortion, stem cell research, and homosexuality.
Falwell died from an apparent heart failure at the age of 73.
