Pat The Nut!
Pat Robertson is absolutley out of his mind! This link spells out his latest lunatic rant, but also lists other howlings of nuttiness. Take a look. However, Pat's comments on feminists being devil-worshiping, baby eaters may not be off the mark if you look at the faces Susan Estrich makes when O'Reilly asks her questions on The Factor! But for Patty R. to advocate the assisination of Hugo Chavez is really off the 'real' mark. Don't we all have a list of people we'd like to see our Special Ops guys go after? I do. And if you've been reading this blog for a while usted sabe quién es el número uno en mi lista? Castro! Why can't Pat advocate knocking off El Presidente? Cuba is ripe for change. Castro has been abusing this Island for more years than Chavez has been in power. It's time for 'The Beard' to go to that great plantation in the sky! A little revolution now and again is a good thing.
If these people are representative of Christians than I may have to rethink my beliefs. They are hypocrites and charlatans of the worst kind.
If you chose B, then you pass the test. If you chose A, then you agree that what Castro is, does, stand for and those that support him in this country is ok. How can you call yourself an American?
Let it ring from the rooftops that c r mountjoy stands in judgement of man and declares death to be the only answer! Let thy 6th commandment be damned! Fire, Brimstone, locusts (oops, falling into the old testament). What Would Jesus Do? Obviously he would say Kill! He would say 'Judge your fellow man, for you surely know the correct path!'. 'Yes, I preached against violence, greed, and power but nevermind that when it doesn't suit your base desires.'
Yes, my flock, the choice is simple. Either you wish death upon this Castro or you are a commie, cuba loving traitor!
As for me, I suppose it is fair to give you an honest backround. I was fairly non-partisan until the whitewater/clinton witch hunt although I always trended left of center. Domestically I believe that taxes should be progressive and that a 'rising tide raises all boats'. We don't exist in a vacume and the welfare of all Americans should be a priority for us as a country. It's insane to me that given all of our wealth and success that we still have families without basic health care and millions of children either homeless or in poverty.
I think the corruption and entaglement of Government and Big Business is one of the biggest threats to our country's future. When we sell out the many to enrich the few we are walking a path to our collective demise as a country. I think that science and ingenuity is our best hope for staying competitive in the future and our education and social systems sicken me in how it is failing our future generations. I think it is reprehensible the way this administration has hijacked and twisted science to suit its needs. We have the resources and the opportunities to accomplish amazing things and I often feel like those opportunities are being squandered. This is part of why I think the war in Iraq was a mistake. For the cost of this war (not just money) there is so much we could have accomplished. I think the desire to fight and conquer is natural but also kind of base in that it allows us to ignore other possibilities that may be harder or require more thought. Everything has it's opportunity cost and it's crazy that this isn't discussed more.
I believe in smart gun laws and agree with Howard Dean that the laws that work in rural areas do not work in urban areas and vice versa. I don't want to confiscate guns but I also think it's a problem when lobbyists spend millions to ensure that mentally unstable people keep the right to own weapons with no other purpose than to kill people. I think abortion should be safe, legal and rare. A child is too serious of a commitment and too important to be forced on someone that either can't or won't care for it.
I think gay people should be allowed to get married and recieve the same rights that straight people have. I think if you have a problem with gay marriage then you shouldn't get one and that's it. It's ridiculous how much time we spend arguing about something as trivial as this. My marriage won't be ruined if gays are allowed to marry and I'm not worried about being 'turned gay' because we aren't shaming gays enough.
Sorry for any spelling or grammar errors but I was kind of hurrying through this. Let me know if I forgot anything.
