More idiocy from Pat

In case some of you haven't heard, Dover, PA recently tossed all of the Republican "intelligent designers" off the Dover school board and replaced them with Democrats.

Here's what the idiot 'n chief of the evangelical movement had to say. If anyone thinks this guy is anything more than a partisan political hack I'd like to hear why...

"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover [Pennsylvania]: If there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God. You just rejected him from your city. ... God is tolerant and loving, but we can't keep sticking our finger in his eye forever. ... If they have future problems in Dover, I recommend they call on Charles Darwin. Maybe he can help them."

-- Pat Robertson

He really needs to be institutionalized. Although, you have to thank him and his ilk for scaring people away from the R party. Without Pat, more people might think that Republicans are reasonable and aren't trying to make America a theocracy.

Trouble is, a pretty high percentage of Americans agree with Pat. Ever see the poll on how many Americans believe in creationism vs. evolution? Makes it pretty clear the next generation of prize-winning scientists will be coming from another country.

One of my first posts was entitled "Pat Robertson - Loon" I should use that title every time he opens his mouth.

Prozac would be a good start.

Hey BoB -- notice you have MLK's pic as your profile: he's one of my biggest hero's from last century. An awesome man.

Anyway, both DL and II are right: I'm surprised at how many people endorse the biblical story of creation.

American's trust a doctor when they are sick... an engineer to build the bridge they travel over each day, but when you ask them "where do you come from" they defer to the 'wisdom' of bronze age tribesmen wandering in the Middle East.

Simply amazing.
