An update on Robertson

Earlier today, I posted some comments about Pat Robertson's statements regarding the school board election in Dover, PA. Later in the day, Robertson issued a clarification. In the interests of fairness, balance, and full disclosure, I thought it best to make sure I give the clarification as much attention as I did the original statement. The clarification reads as follows:
"I was simply stating that our spiritual actions have consequences and it's high time we started recognizing it. 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."
I hope that clears up any confusion that you might have had about his statements earlier today.

And calling on Darwin would have exactly the sam ebenefit as calling on God.

I think there is a good case that Robertson is an idolatrous heathen. Not that I have anything against idolatry or being a heathen for that matter. After all I am an atheist heathen.

It is just that as far as I know the God of the post-Roman monotheists does not have eyes into which a normal human being can poke a finger.

Of course Pat Robertson has also forgotten other things. For instance that the first protestants thought that Christmas was a pagan ritual promoted by a Babylonian church. Now those of us atheists who don't want Christer consumerism forced upon us are the pagans. Oh well, we do live in the Republic of Democracy.
