Pat, honey. Did you forget your meds?

My favorite TV evangalist Pat Robertson is at it again. Today he had comments regarding the Dover PA election results. For you not following that story, Dover PA is the town where the school board were sued for introducing the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in biology class. On Tuesday, eight of the nine school board members were swept out of office as the town voted to believe in science and to refuse to allow religious teachings in the classroom. Of course, Pat Robertson didn't like this one bit. This is what he had to say:

"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," Robertson said on his daily television show broadcast from Virginia, "The 700 Club."

"And don't wonder why He hasn't helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask for His help because he might not be there," he said.

My question is, if there was a nice big juicy natural disaster that hit the 700 Club's Virginia studios, would Pat get the hint? Would Pat think that maybe God didn't need to be voted out of Virginia, maybe he just hightailed it outta there in disgust.

SO, a self-proclaimed disciple of God is advising people NOT to pray in times of need. I think that's pretty much what Jesus wanted, right?

I can't believe people aren't fleeing P.R.'s vicinity like rats from a sinking ship. Amazing.

This is akin to suggesting that if you don't give a big enough donation to your volunteer fire department, that they will just let YOUR house burn, while saving the one of your neighbor who paid more dues. Poppycock.
