I cant resist joining the fray against that bastard Pat Robertson. Here it is folks... the smiling face of fundamentalist Christianity-- all those good church going folks who are such ardent supporters of George Bush, The War on Muslims, etc.
Well, now Robertson has added Venezuela's Chavez to the list of official infidels.. saying, "If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think we really ought to go ahead and do it," and also that Chavez was turning his oil-rich South American country into "a launching pad for communist infiltration and Muslim extremism all over the continent."
Apparently Chavez is going to convert the 98% Catholic population to Islam... though I was unaware that HE had in fact converted.
The great thing about Robertson is that he puts it out there for us all to see. Many Christians have similar views... they love war, they're all for assassination, the hate "peace lovers", they hate muslims, they hate gays/lesbians, they hate athiests, they hate Buddhists, they hate liberals... and Democrats... and Greens... and Hindus....on and on and on.
But many are more clever than Robertson. To your face they will speak of "loving the sinner but not the sin". But thats just code for "persecute the homos".
In the end, I prefer Robertson. He's a moron. He's a bigot and racist. He's a hypocrit of the lowest order. But at least he's straight up about it. He puts it out there plain... and lets us all see the true nature of "Compassionate Conservative Christianity".
Ill take that over double-talk and innuendo anyday.
