Robertson on Falwell
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Evangelical leader Pat Robertson released the following statement on the death of Rev. Jerry Falwell:
"My wife and I have sent our condolences to Macel Falwell and her family. Jerry has been a tower of strength on many of the moral issues which have confronted our nation. Liberty University is a magnificent accomplishment and will prove a lasting legacy. Jerry's courage and strength of convictions will be sadly missed in this time of increasing moral relativism. I join with the tens of thousand of his friends to mourn the passing of this extraordinary human being."
