    Maybe we should just take Robertson and Jesse Jackson and give them an island to form a country and then they can fight it out to be president of Moronia!

    Why waste money on an island. I propose a pay-per-view event. Fatal Four-way with Robertson, Jackson, Fallwell, and Sharpton. The winner gets Farrakan in a knife fight.

    Well you can count Sharpton out, that fucker's already lost one knife fight. Too bad they were only superficial wounds.

    Back to the topic at hand. Doesn't it bother anyone else that a man of Robertson's stature, with the number of followers he has, is calling for a nuclear device to be set off in our nation's capital??????

    Unfortunately, the conservative agenda for many Christians (abortion, sex education, etc..) has caused them to side with a party that supports these issues, while all of their lying, misrepresentation, and warmongering has been brushed aside as a false accusation by the "liberal" media.

    Many fundamentalist Christians see Bush as God's choice as the leader of the United States, see the US as the only nation standing between the world and eternal damnation, and see the rest of the world as a pit of despair that can only be saved through US manifest destiny. Pat Robertson calls his viewers to prayer to stop the vicious attacks by the media on God's chosen leader. It's a joke, and makes me sad an entire segment of the Christian church is allowing social agendas to block their view of right and wrong (last time I looked, lying was in the same list as adultery, and Christ had more compassion for an adulteress than for hypocritical pharisees).

    Pat Robertson does not speak for a majority of Christians, and thank God for that.

    I think I would be more scared if I knew the exact number. The man has his own tv network that someone must be watching.

    Unfortunately, this is very true.


    Many fundamentalist Christians see Bush as God's choice as the leader of the United States,


    Actually, the Christian position is that God appoints all of our leaders. Bush, Clinton, Nixon, etc...


    see the US as the only nation standing between the world and eternal damnation,

    I have never heard a Christian say anything remotely close to this.


    and see the rest of the world as a pit of despair that can only be saved through US manifest destiny.


    You are close. US Christians give more money, time, and volunteer efforts towards easing bad conditions in other countries than any other country. But I've never heard a Christian appeal for the government to do the job thru 'Manifest Destiny'...


    Pat Robertson does not speak for a majority of Christians, and thank God for that.


    Now I do agree with that...

    Actually, no.

    CBN is no more and hasn't been around for many years. It became "The Family Channel," then was bought by News Corp and became "Fox Family," then was bought by Disney and became "ABC Family." About the only remnant of its CBN past is that they're contractually obligated to show the 700 Club.

    But beyond that, the 700 Club is also carried on hundreds of over-the-air stations across the country through time-buys, so the reach of the crap that he's spewing is widespread.

    And frankly, I object to the title of this thread. I would venture to say that most fundamentalist Christians consider themselves as being represented by Pat Robertson and furthermore believe that he's a wingnut who obscures their message.

    I'm sure some islamic fundamentalist feel the same way about Osama, but oh well.

    This thread is not an attack on Christianity, but an attack on those who use to push their negative agenda.

    DOES IT NOT BOTHER ANYONE THAT HE SAID WHAT HE SAID? He has given support to a NUCLEAR ATTACK on American soil!!!!!!!!!

    Well, some things are so self-evident that they don't require any sort of discussion. Besides, ever since 9/11, Messrs. Robertson and Falwell have really ramped up the looniness, so it doesn't even fall into the category of "shocking" anymore.

    I'm sorry, but when that looniness involves advocating the detonation of a nuclear device three miles from my house, I get upset.

    Perhaps in the future, if you don't intend to attack fundamentalist Christians in general, then you might want to stay away from thread titles like "More evidence that Christian Fundies are a threat to America."

    That way, you'll keep people from jumping to the obviously rash conclusion that you're tarring all fundamentalist Christians with the same brush as Pat Robertson.

    Might I then suggest a thread title of "Idiot Robertson says Nuke the State Department!"

    His statements have as much affect on me as, say, Michael Moore...

    Not funny. After being here on 9/11, I can tell you that I don't find Mr. Robertson comments at all amusing.

    What scares me is the posibilty that some whack job somewhere will listen to him and follow through with an OKC style attack. But never mind me and my Spejic style conspiracy theory.

    Since I'm getting bashed, here are some more fundies that scare the bejeebus out of me.

    And the three million Palestinians who live on the West Bank and Gaza? McAteer suggests the bulk of

    them could be cleansed from this God_given real estate and moved to some Arab country. Nothing can come

    between the Jews and their land. In fact, many fundamentalists believe that when Prime Minister Rabin signed

    the Oslo Accords and offered to trade land for peace, it was not only a mistake, it was a sin

    I believe Mr. Robertson also said that God would bring judgment on Orlando, FL and DisneyWorld during the first Gay Days there a couple of years ago. He's a proven blowhard.

    Taken from skeptictank.org (first thing that came up when I typed "Pat Robertson Disney" into Google)
    **************************************
    "On the June 8 edition of his "700 Club" show (released to the media by Americans United for Separation of Church and State), Robertson denounced Orlando and Disney World for welcoming gay tourists to the theme park during a privately sponsored "Gay Days" weekend. Robertson predicted dire consequences.

    Noting that the city government allowed the display of rainbow flags on light poles, the TV preacher warned that acceptance of homosexuality could result in hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, terrorist bombs and "possibly a meteor."

    On today's show, Robertson returned to the subject.

    "And you know, as I've been reading and praying, we had quite a flap the other day when we were talking about that gay pride day in Orlando and everybody laughed, but nevertheless, here's what I saw in the Bible," Robertson said.

    Noting that the Florida fires are often caused by lightning, Robertson cited biblical prophecy. Quoting from Revelation 8:7, Robertson said, "'There was an angel who sounded,' it said, 'his trumpet and there came hail and fire' -- and, of course, fire is lightning -- 'and it was hurled down upon the earth.'...And that's exactly what is happening."

    Quoting from another passage in the Bible, Robertson said people must "turn from their wicked ways" and pray to bring rain and stop the fires. He urged city councils, mayors and religious leaders to declare days of fasting and prayer."

    Ask Vince McMahon...or Satan (Some would say they're the same guy).


    What if it was an 8 man "last man standing" death match?

    Jackson, Sharpton, Fallwell, and Robertson versus
    OBL, Saddam, Kim Jong Il, and Arafat?

    Winner gets Castro in a "castration" match.

    2 questions. Who wouldn't pay to see that? Would that be the biggest pay-per-view draw in history? That would outdraw Tyson/Holyfield II by 20 million homes...

    How are Mowbray's comments not a federal crime under the charge of "making terroristic threats"?
