Robertson Links Sharon's Stroke to Wrath of God...

Pat Robertson is nuts!

When I first arrived in the Deep South from Ireland in the early Sixties I was surprised to discover that white Christian preachers used the Bible to "prove" that God was opposed to racial integration. These so-called "men of God" provided a convenient rationale for an oppressive racism that degraded African Americans.

These same preachers today are able to find Biblical justification for the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory. Robertson and some of his fellow hate-mongering preachers have as much contempt for Palestinians as they had for African Americans back in the Fifties and Sixties.

Pat Robertson's biblical interpretations are pure bullshit! His comment about Sharon's stroke is so stupid as to be unworthy of comment. Christianity is supposed to be about promoting brotherhood and understanding...not about promoting racism, bigotry and oppression.


If you want to be reminded about what authentic AMERICAN VALUES are all about read this post by ReddHedd in Firedoglake. Needs no commentary. You'll be inspired!
