Robertson Just Won't Shut Up

"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," - Pat Robertson, CBN Founder

Can a Christian talk too much?

Well, if you don't think so, notice the latest headlines on religious broadcaster Pat Robertson, founder and commentator on the Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club".

He's been in the fire for quite sometime, especially after his tumble with saying hateful words upon Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez; pronouncing his future assissanation. Venezuelan amabassador Fermin Toro Jimenez pointed out that such statements is a crime under U.S. law as well as an act of terrorism under international law. But Robertson is at it again.

This time, he boldly declares destruction upon a little town called Dover, PA since all eight of their city's school board members were defeated on Tuesday after trying to introduce "intelligent design" — the belief that the universe is so complex that it must have been created by a higher power — as an alternative to the theory of evolution.

Well, the school systems in our country have been practicing the seperation of church and state for quite some time. It's something we all are very much aware of. Yet, no person or person should become so vocal that they prononce destruction from the hand of God (the same hand that provides blessings and mercies) upon all of our cities and our country. Robertson preached the assissanation of a foreign president, now he's preaching the assissanation of a city. Wow, how controversial can one get.
