pat robertson has reared his ugly head. i guess the other tv religious shysters were moving ahead of him. maybe donations were down. maybe hes just insane. pat is an attention whore. he needs to see his name in the press and it just wasnt happening fast enough for old pat. what did he do? did he rail against unwed mothers? homosexuals? LIBERALS? no, pat called for the assassination of venezuelan president hugo chavez. doesnt this go right against (at the very least) one of the commandments? should this be the man who wants to hold the moral compass for our country? i have made fun of religious fundamentalists on this site for some time but i hope people see the seriousness of this. hows the gop going to spin this? is this a form of terrorism? let me pose this question....if someone were to kill this man (and lets not pretend that chavez is a good guy....hes not)and then say that he got the idea from pat robertson, could pat (or the 700 club) be sued? i would love to get my hands on some of that cash. thats like being able to sue fort knox. let me pose another question.....is he speaking for christians? the 700 club? i really want to see how the 700 club addresses this. their own man calling for the assassination of another countries leader. i wonder what other religious groups will say about pat? will he be condemned? pat robertson should be put off of tv. not by the fcc or any other group but by his own people turning their backs on him. if you send another cent to the 700 club then you condone what he has done. if people quit donating they would go away. i guess the bottom line is that pat robertson has as much to with god as courtney love has to do with drug control.
just something for you to ponder on a wednesday
