Asshole for Christ

I see that Pat Robertson apologized for being a total cock the other day when he said that Sharon's stroke was revenge from god. I hope someday before I die these dishonest religous leaders lose their influence. You'd figure after what happened to that crowd over ten years ago would have cut into their prominence. Somehow they hung around. In case you missed here is a summary of what happened from a USA Today article: "The day after Sharon's stroke, Robertson suggested he was being punished for pulling Israel out of the Gaza Strip last summer. The pullout was seen by many evangelical groups as a retreat from biblical prophecy of Jewish sovereignty over the area.

"God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program "The 700 Club." "You read the Bible and he says 'This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, 'No, this is mine.'""
