We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Mark Nickolas grabbed some Pat Robertson quotes from Skaroffblog and IMDB. They are frightening because I know people who feel similarly about a lot of these things.
Pat Robertson has no real religious qualifications other than being on TV for the last few decades. Realistically, he falls into the same category as Dr. James Dobson. Neither has any religious training per se. No seminary work, no degrees in theology. I tend to suspect they would be a bit more open minded if they were.
The basic problem I have with what he says is that it contradicts what one might here in say Sunday School. The whole purpose of the Christian religion was to celebrate the redemption given by the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christos, the only begotten son of God. I thought I was taught that God did this to experience life as a human but also to redeem all sins of man. This was so God wouldn't have to fool with floods any more or destroy cities like Sodom.
Then people like Pat Robertson continue to say, "well, be careful, God might knock you out anyway." I think Pat Robertson needs to worry more about feeding and clothing the poor than he does about Dover, Pennsylvania surviving a meteor because they don't teach intelligent design.

Then you need to go to Jesus' General and learn about Republican Jesus. It'll clear up that confusion right away.
