Good Ol' Pat Robertson

Reverend Pat Robertson is shooting off his mouth again.

You know I love the man and think he's good intentioned, and in his own way he really thinks he is saying what God wants him to say, but he is also a little, shall we wisdom-challenged. It seems he removes one foot from his mouth just in time to insert the other one.

And of course the MSM wants every foolish thing he says to be broadcasted to the entire world, because they think it reflects what we say and believe.

You know that sad part about this is that's what I thought could remotely remotely remotely be an act of God but then I added about ten more remotelys. Well intentioned but not the best of spokesmen for Christianity. I'd prefer Chuck Swindoll, John MacArthur, Hank Hannegraff, or Allister Beg. Regardless, there are times to speak and times to remain quiet (Eccl. 3); Pat should have chosen the latter. Good post, even if it doesn't bolster robosquirrel's confidence in us :D

Why is it when the "Christian right" gets a media blitz, they always have on a striped shirt and checkered pants with pink sox or say something strange like Pat Robertson? He doesn't reflect what I say or believe.

It may be true, but for Pat to sout it out there like it is a given is not right. I do wonder what it will change in the Middle East. I will always pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

LP, you're right. It hit every front page since it was a conservative.

I - although no one can deny the good that Robertson has done - personally think he's kinda loony. What irritates me is the hypocrisy. Actually, on two levels. One, why can Louis Farrakhan get away with much crazier stuff than Robertson ever said? And two, when Pat Robertson supposedly had a "vision" about the Iraq war going to be a failure and supposedly told Bush about it, why did Liberals jump all over it?
(Hey, I thought he was a nut.)

Of course, this latest comment by Robertson is just totally presumptuous and out of line.

Don't know to much about him, but from what I just read he sounds like a wingnut. As an outsider all I can say is yikes...

Texas Fred posted on this also and I made similar comments there. I hesitate to criticize Evangelical Christians because they are so demonized by the MSM but for Robertson I make an exception. I have never been a big fan of his and when he makes statements like this I just groan. It bothers me because it confirms some of the bad stereotypes some people have of Christians. I truly think he's losing it and needs to retire.

Like Neo there are a lot of other Christian leaders that I think more accurately represent us than Robertson. My favorite is Dobson.

Thank you, Pat, for more firmly cementing in peoples' minds the image of the average Christian as a hate-mongering, self-righteous, mouthy, narrow-minded bigot.

There is a few Rabbis in Israel that also believe this also. They are not getting the press that Robertson is tho.
