Pat Robertson: The Prince Of Harshness
Pat Robertson must have a penchant for the taste of shoe leather because he stuck his cloven hoof deep into his kisser earlier this morning. It wasn't too long ago that he raised eyebrows by calling for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. I remember thinking, Ok... that's it... Nothing out of his mouth will surprise or shock me again.
Imagine my surprise and shock upon reading what he said today:
"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: if there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city... And don't wonder why He hasn't helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask for His help because he might not be there" :: (Source CNN)That's right folks. Pat Robertson has moved from bashing people of the U.S. after storms hit because of their godlessness, to hoping that God will smite them with storm and fury because they didn't vote the way he wanted them to.
If you are an observant lad or lass like me, you've probably noticed that Robertson condemned the entire city of Dover, Pennsylvania with that statement. Even the people that voted for the Intelligent Design statement to be added into the high school curriculum are subject to Pat's meteorological jihad. Oh, lets not forget the people that didn't even vote... they are screwed as well in Pat's book. How about tourists that may be in Dover at the time Pat? Are they subject to hellfire and brimstone? Lets not forget that storms and catastrophes rarely confine themselves to city limits. Thus, other towns in the surrounding areas will likely fall in the wake of Roberston's godly and political vengeance.
Howard Stern has to move to outer space to avoid the FCC and potentially offending people. I say we strap Pat to the next shuttle.
