Christians Against The Big Moron
Pack it in, Pat (Robertson, that is). That's what a bunch of Christians are saying in petition form:

To: Pat Robertson

Dear Rev. Robertson,

We appreciate all your hard work and dedication to ministry over the years, but we are now asking that you please retire or at least stop making unfounded, insane-sounding comments and trying to pass them off as mainstream Christian thought such as:

1. Calling for the assassination of foreign heads of state (Hugo Chavez).
2. Telling people God will abandon or punish/destroy them (Dover, PA residents) because they exercised their right to vote against intelligent design supporting school board members.
3. Saying that morbidly overweight, elderly heads of state (Ariel Sharon) have strokes as the result of punishments from God for seeking peace rather than simple cardiovascular disease.

Seriously Pat, you're embarrassing the rest of us Christians who are trying to demonstrate God's love and mercy to a broken world already suspicious of religion and religious people.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

Yes Pat, In Jesus' name I implore you to please shut the fuck up.

Yes, Pat, just stick to telling your harmless bible fairy tales such as Noah's Arc, a talking snake and donkey, god's voice in a burning bush, a saviour of the world born to a virgin, etc. This way, we'll all still know you and your followers are nuts, but you won't piss off the rest of us. And Pat....one more thing; your bible is missing only 2 sentences: "Once upon a time." and "They lived happily ever after"

Talking donkeys? There aren't any talking donkeys in the bible. WAIT! It turns out there is, in Numbers. If it wasn't for your blog Amy, I probably wouldn't even own a bible anymore.

"They lived happily ever after"

I think that one is in there, more or less. Isn't that the main point of religion?

Shore is. Of course, reality doesn't bear that out. You're religious, you're probably as subject to random suffering as the rest of us.

Pat Robertson is foaming at the mouth. I am Christian, and he surely does not represent me. The only reason he wanted Hugo Chavez dead was over oil. He even said as much in that little speech on the 700 club that the price of oil would not rise much if he were to be assassinated.




Pat Robertson's call for American agents to assassinate President Hugo Chavez is a "terrorist" statement that needs to be investigated by U.S. authorities...




I thought being a minister meant that you taught people about the bible and the word of God. I thought it meant that you were a peace loving person. After all Jesus said that the meek would inherit the earth. The guy thinks he speaks for God? What a joke. I mean "Who would Jesus assassinate?"




Apparently this minister thinks differently, as it appears he sanctions murder, by advocating that the U.S. should assassinate the President of Venuzuela, Hugo Chavez.




What further galls me is that the Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld sanctioned this man's comments, by refusing to investigate Pat Robertson for terrorism. But as you can see from reading Pat Robertson's terroristic statement that oil is involved in the dispute. The "oil" is why our so-called administration doesn't care.




After reading his statements there is vomit on my keyboard. This disgusts me. How dare Pat Robertson call himself a man of God. He is nothing but a two-bit terrorist. He ought to be imprisoned at Guantanamo, and held for trial on terrorism charges, and for inciting violence.




I for one will definitely sign the petition against him.

Mr. Robertson is interested in worldly power, fame and personal aggrandizement. This observation is based on what he does and says. He uses the ministry as a cover and a vehicle for his ego-based agenda.

He seems to forget that he too is mortal and will someday die, and/or suffer debilitating health problems and then die. He needs to understand that there will be lots of people who will then say, "See. God has smote that false prophet."

My prediction is that God will smite Pat Robertson by either taking his health or his life within the next 20 years.

I signed it under the pseudonym "Rosemary's Baby."
