New Topic - August 23

My thanks tonight to Pat Robertson for shooting his mouth off today so I'd have something besides the dead to discuss.

Oops, wait, that's what he wanted to talk about, too, in terms of making someone be dead. Precisely, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. In essence, Robertson said that it would be cheaper to send operatives to kill Chavez than to start a war.

Well, yes, that is true. But it's definitely no basis for assassination, which by the way is illegal. It would be even cheaper to save all bullets and stay home. And I'm all in favor of both cheap and not killing people.

It is sort of fun to hear some of the extremely right-wing Christians shoot off their mouths, except that people who hear the pronouncements are occasionally apt to confuse these right-wingers with the whole of Christianity.

Actually, there are a whole lot of us who identify ourselves as Christian who cringe at the notion of being identified as being on the same planet as Robertson and his ilk.

In fact, I'd like to start a coalition to send all the televangelists to another planet. I'm thinking Pluto might be nice this time of year.
