Pat Robertson - shut up!

It was bad enough that this televangelist publicly stated that it would be a good idea to assassinate a head of state.

Note to little Pat:

Whether or not it is a good policy to assassinate a head of state (lefties say we should have offed Saddam after all) - it is incredibly stupid to talk about it on national television!

Now on to the latest from this babbling nabob.

Robertson warns Pennsylvania voters of God's wrath

"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," Robertson said on his daily television show broadcast from Virginia, "The 700 Club."

"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," he said.

Little Pat's warning was over the Dover citizens changing the school board:

In voting on Tuesday, eight Dover, Pennsylvania, school board members up for re-election lost their seats after trying to introduce a statement on "intelligent design" to high school biology students.

As the article points out there were mounting legal costs. Considering the legal expenses because of the ACLU bullying, it is no surprise they would tuck their tails and run. Sad and frustrating IMO but Robertson needs to just shut up. It is hard enough for those of us who defend the faith with reason and rationality but then to have someone like this with a microphone - well, with friends like this who needs enemies?

Blogs4God has excellent advice for Robertson. Be sure to read it all to see how Pat's reflexive stupidity gave the opponent's of ID ammunition.

Finally Pat Robertson, I have a warning for you sir – remember the story of Jonah and how he hated the fact that the people of Nineveh repented. Please remember this lesson before encouraging anyone to reject God when disaster comes. I mean seriously, how is it that just a few years ago you agreed that 9/11 was a 2 Chronicles 7:14 moment – and then now instruct us not repent when similar disaster comes our way? “For God is not a God of confusion but of peace” – nor is He one who revels in our distress.

Put another way, if it is true that God disciplines those whom He loves, then what right have we to encourage people to turn to Charles Darwin, or any other god, if and when our Lord issues a rebuke and/or in the course of our sin nature, bad things happen?

The only thing more idiotic than Pat Robertson's statement (at least he is consistent) is the editorial at USA Today referenced at Blogs4God. I've covered these misconceptions in the previous posts below. Apparently some still like to wallow around in error and propaganda. I guess you don't have to be a dork televangelist to be an Idiotarian.
