Pat Robertson doesn't speak for myself or any sane Christian I know.

He can feel free do to any type of research on a topic before he opens his mouth though. http://bit.ly/8OR1PW

I wish he'd just shut up.

Lifeguard on doody.

Reason 24,122 I can't associate myself with "Christians".

Mpeterson said...

He speaks for plenty of insane Christians... let's see how long it takes before someone comes to his defense...

As a Christian, I know he does not speak for me. What a ridiculous statement - I equate this to the Westboro Baptist Church and their statements. I truly hate when people hide behind Christianity for their odd thoughts.

Mpeterson said...

Except that the Westboro Church doesn't have it's own TV network.

"Christianity is as Christianity does," Mama used to say.

Squinting rich hypocrite. First, there is no Devil to make a pact with. Second, Robertson is quick to jump up and try to answer the question of why a benevolent God would visit this on mankind, the obvious answer being that nature is not controlled by any gods, regrets to the "good" Christians who disavow Robertson.

A good organization to donate to is Doctors Without Borders, http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/ .

Robertson does not speak for all Christians.

Christians are speaking out against Robertson on this.

Even the evangelical Christians.

Charlie Sykes was beating up Pat Robertson on this!

Criticizing crazies in one's own religion is not something we find to readily apparent with Islam or global warming!

So those Christians speaking out against Robertson deserve kudos.

Mpeterson said...

You don't like Christians at all, do you Kev?

"one's own religion?"

Religion is personal?

...wherever two people gather in my name...

Heresy! Obviously the work of (inner) demons.

"Criticizing crazies in one's own religion is not something we find to readily apparent with Islam or global warming!" ??? Someone does read much beyond the FOX news bottom screen teletype and FOX news alerts.

Scott McLemee is very devious.

You have your nut-jobs on the left too, Mark.

Haiti - from the AP:

... a Sunday Mass praising God amid a scene resembling the Apocalypse ...

"Why give thanks to God? Because we are here," the Rev. Eric Toussaint preached to a small crowd of survivors. "We say 'Thank you God.' What happened is the will of God. We are in the hands of God now. What happens is a sign from God, saying that we must recognize his power..."

Others, however, were angry.

"It's a catastrophe and it is God who has put this upon us," said Jean-Andre Noel, 39-year-old computer technician.
An apparently demented elderly woman began preaching on the sideline of the Mass: "Where is our justice?..."

I have my own concept of who the demented are.
