Does Anyone Even Listen to this Guy?

Pat Robinson has done it again. In his never-ending battle to get bad publicity for himself, he has continued his brazen practice of one-upmanship with his nearest reactionary competitor: himself.

Here is a link sent to me by a reader of this blog (the reader?):

The significant remark:

Sharon “was dividing God’s land and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU (European Union), the United Nations, or the United States of America,” Robertson said.

So, here is a tally of Good-ole Pat's recent remarks:

  • He implied that God struck down Israeli president Sheron with stroke because of Sheron's unilateral peace policies with Palestine
  • He called for the American-sponsored assassination of Hugo Chavez, president of Venezuala
  • He called for a meteor to hit Florida because Disneyworld had a Gay Day
  • He suggested it would be poetic justice if a nuke would be tested out on the State Department building

I know people out there watch this guy, listen to this guy, even revere this guy. This scares me more than the Taliban or Osama ever could. Stuff like this is not fit for print in America. Their paying audience should universally shun people like Pat Robinson If Christians can't police themselves and show a unified front against bigots like Pat Robinson, then woe unto them.

But maybe I'm wrong? Maybe there is a strong section of the USA that believes his crap?

Okay, now I'm really scared.
