Pat Robertson

Sorry about the lack of new posts, I'll try to get better.

So, uh, Pat Robertson, in the span of two days, declared that the United States should assasinate the president of Venezuela, then less than 24 hours later, denied that he said it (he was misinterpreted, he said), then not more than a few hours later was on TV apologizing for it. Apparently he is "frustrated."

Okay, so I'm not a big fan of the Christian Coalition (which Mr. Robertson founded, I believe). But I try to see your side of it. I have to ask, though - why is Pat Robertson still allowed to speak on your behalf? He's forgotten lots of Christian principles... I'm thinking specifically of "Thou shall not kill" and how Christ taught to love one's neighbor.

Advocating immoral things is pretty much as bad as picking up the gun and doing it yourself. We arrest terrorists all the time who preach that the infidels must die. How is what Pat said any different?

Pat Robertson stopped being a Christian a long time ago. Now, he's just another radical politician who couldn't get elected President. The Christian Coalition should get itself a new public figure, and stuff Robertson in the back room.

I'm with you on this one. We tend to see things from our point of view. How terrorists are bad etc and yet we fail to take the time in seeing what our politicians and others are saying.

Has Robertson turned into one who will use God and Christian belief merely for propaganda purposes? I think so.
