I am somewhat dismayed at the right to middle parts of the blogsphere and their take on this matter. They are blowing off Pat Robertson’s call on agents of the US to kill President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.
Lets think on that shall we? The smiling, affable seeming person who hosts that Christian show ‘700 Club’ calling for someone’s murder. I must congratulate Mr. Robertson, he issued a Christian fatwa. What a wonderful idea, not.
I do not see a problem with President Bush, Secretary Rumsfeld, and the State Department treating his statement as if it was radioactive because Robertson’s statement is radioactive.
If we, those trying to keep Iraq and Afghanistan free, are going to call on the followers of the Prophet to marginalize the fanatics in their midst; just for the sake of consistency we must cast out those who do not represent the mainstream of the Christian faith. And Pat with this statement went beyond the pale.
