Blog Stuff: A one-man bad PR machine...

Pat Robertson offers Ariel Sharon's stroke as proof of God's existance.

From where I'm sitting, the fact that Pat is still upright and breathing would seem to argue the opposite point. (Or that if there is a God, he's a lot more lenient than Pat makes him out to be...)

I've been saying this to people all day...

Please, PLEASE don't assume that Robertson is an accurate sample of evangelical Christians. I place him in the same mental category as Benny Hinn, that is, those who live the lives of millionares while projecting an image of a 'special annointing' to the gullible. They do the name of Christ incredible harm.

Bleh. Makes me physically ill just thinking about them.

I'm a Christian myself, although I seem to be marvelously bad at it. I've come around slowly, over about 20 years. Slowly, because Christianity was advocated by folks like Robertson. Now, he might be a fine fellow in person, I don't know, but he needs to insert some kind of filter (a brain, perhaps) between his speech center and his mouth. He, and Oral Roberts, and other fat cat evangelists are chasing people away from Christ with their inane commentary on current events. Who wants to be associated with these kooks?

A great post and you make an excellent (and very funny) point. :-) I was checking out other "view" blogs, and ended up here. You have a nice blog!
