Pat robertson, american idiot.............

well you knew it was going to happen. pat robertson has apologized for his remarks about assassinating the president of venezuela, hugo chavez. heres what robertson said on monday
"you know, i dont know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinkswe're trying to assassinate him, i think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. its a whole lot cheaper than starting a war, and i dont think the oil shipments will stop. we have the ability to take him out, and i think the time has come that we exercise that ability. we dont need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong arm dictator. its a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with"
on wednesday, he initially denied having called for chavez to be killed and said the associated press had misinterpreted his remarks. " i didnt say 'assassination'. i said our special forces should take him out. take him out could be a number of things including kidnapping".
well pat i hear you and understand and i still cant understand how the ap took what you said and misinterpreted it. we all know what you meant. cmon did you mean that when you said we should 'take him out' that you meant out to dinner? shopping? cmon pat dont bullshit us. we dont all give money to your bullshit ministry. at the very least your apology says that you called for his kidnapping. like thats a good thing. would he be happy if we took someone in his family 'out'. i know that he is asshole buddies with dubya but how would they feel if someone else said they should 'take out' our president. there would be an uproar. this is typical of this administration in particular and religious fundamentalists in general. we can do what we want because either we are america or god is on our side. there is a very thin line between the christian broadcasting network and al jazeira.

by the way i called the 700 club prayer line yesterday. the conversation went like this....
young lady....hello prayer line
shoes...yes i've had a bad day can i help you
shoes...will you say a prayer for me
yl.....of course, what for
shoes...i'd like my neighbor dead
yl.....i cant do that
shoes....look pat called for the president of venezuela to be killed all i'm asking
for is a neighbor. thats got to be easier for god.
yl.....very funny sir. is there anything else
shoes...are you going to say my prayer?
dial tone......
they really dont have a sense of humor about this at all. i encourage everone to call the 700 club prayer line and ask for someone to be killed just like your favorite christian pat robertson. its 1-800-759-0700. call early and often.

enjoy your glad you dont live in florida

maybe if you asked for the neighbor to "die for your sins"...? Or made a small donation they woulda had some special forces evangelists in there "praying" for your neighbor and any other member of his family that you wanted "eased" into the light.

LMAO, that is too funny!

Of course he didn't mean "kill". It had to be take him shopping or out to dinner. What bullshit!

I wonder how many calls they've gotten for prayers for the dismissal of Pat?
