D. James Kennedy Dead
D. James Kennedy, the head of the Coral Ridge Presbyterian megachurch in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has died.
As I said at the time of his recent retirement because of ill-health, Kennedy was one of the worst of the Righteous Right, a Dominionist and antirationalist of the first rank. But I don't feel any joy at his illness ... nor any great sorrow either. Nothing has changed in my opinion now that he has died.
Kennedy's execrable pseudohistorical television program Darwin's Deadly Legacy blackened Kennedy's name far more effectively than it did Darwin's.
