Why Christians get a bad rap. August 23, 2005Posted by Administrator in Blogging, Cultural Pessimism.
In part, because of irresponsible fools like the Rev. Robertson, who advocated for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez today on his TV show.
Now, there is little doubt that Chavez may be a blustering demagogue in desperate need of some common sense, but he is the democratically elected ruler of Venezuela, and no one should be advocating for his assassination, especially not a “Christian” commentator.
You might contact the Rev here and remind him that advocating for the death of someone else is pretty much a violation of the Sixth Commandment, and would he please in the future keep his demented, anti-Christian ravings to himself.
UPDATE The Rev has now apologized (sort of) for his idiot statement. I would like it better if he would simply SHUT UP after apologizing, but that is another post.
And our good adversary GOB has suggested that your obedient blogger would take the Rev’s side on this. . .despite the fact that I beat Biscuits onto the Net by eight hours denouncing Robertson for his folly.
And he says we are the only ones to make snap judgements without thought.
Will Biscuits apologize? We shall see.
