Sometimes I think that I'm dreaming this stuff up, but then I find out that, nope, it's true. People are as stupid as this and are still allowed to breathe. Pat Robertson has declared that Hurricane Katrina is Ellen Degeneris' fault because God is angry that Ellen has been chosen to host the Emmy awards. Doesn't that make awesome sense? But there's more. It's also Ellen's fault that 9/11 happened, because that was the first time Ellen was to host the Emmys. This is one of those pronouncements that you just have to ask, "Does anyone actually buy this shit?" This is my favorite part of the article:
"Robertson added that other tragedies of the past several years can be linked to Degeneres’ growing national prominence. September, 2003, for example, is both the month that her talk show debuted and when insurgents first gained a foothold in Iraq following the successful March invasion. “Now we know why things took a turn for the worse,” he explained.
In order to avoid further tragedy, Robertson called not only for the Television Academy to find a new heterosexual host, but to bar all homosexuals and bisexuals from taking part in the ceremony.
He said employees at the Christian Broadcasting Network had put together a list of 283 nominees, presenters, and invited guests at the Emmys known to be of sexually deviant persuasions.“God already allows one awards show to promote the homosexual agenda,” Robertson declared. “But clearly He will not tolerate such sinful behavior to spread beyond the Tonys.”"
I swear it, someone has to put this guy out of his misery. Stumble It! JBlog Me
