Reconciling assholes for nearly a decade.

Pat Robertson is terrorist

He called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Those muslims are at it again.

But hey, it would be less expensive than going to war!

Let me check my Bible...yeah, here it is..."Thou shalt not kill, except when it is financially beneficial to do so."

Right there in black and white, word of God. Can't argue with that!

Per the Daily Show, it's "Thou shall not kill, unless it doesn't disrupt the shipments of oil".

Well, that's the King James translation. I'm going with a direct to English translation from the original Hebrew.

Or Greek/Aramaic/Sumerian/whatever language God was speaking at the time.

Wait, maybe this one was in English, handed to Pat directly.

To repeat myself:

I wonder if Robertson has diamond or gold mines in Venezuela?

I wonder how many people realize he owns various mining companies in Africa? And who his partners are in these operations?

I remember Thomas Moore trying to argue that in _A Man For All Seasons_ (and being beheaded anyway).

There's some truth to it ... but there isn't time to go speaking out against every stupid/illegal/immoral thing that everyone/anyone says, especially in this age of telecommunications, is there?

Now he says he only wanted the special forces to kidnap him.

This, despite saying "If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it."

"If President Chavez thinks we're trying to give him the world's largest flourescent purple rubber ducky, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it."

Clearly Pat was trying to say that if Chavez *doesn't* think the US would try to assassinate him then the US shouldn't do it, and thus Pat is still a good christian leader - you just have to follow the triple negatives all the way through.

;)

Heh, I love the way christians give their terrorists a second chance to backpedal but demand the immediate execution of muslim terrorists and anyone in a mile radius of where the bombs hit. If a muslim said that Bush should be assassinated (for the FBI/CIA/SS agents reading I strongly oppose assassination so just relax, ok?) noone would listen while they explained what they "really" meant.
