Speaking Of People Who Need A Good Smiting…

Doesn't he realize that he's a parody of himself?
Broadcaster Pat Robertson Calls for Retirement of Justices.

In case you hadn’t heard, Pat Robertson has launched a “21-Day Prayer Offensive” aimed at getting rid of the more liberal members of the Supreme Court. Your scriptural guide to this campaign can be found here. As Pat says, “One justice is 83-years-old, another has cancer and another has a heart condition. Would it not be possible for God to put it in the minds of these three judges that the time has come to retire? With their retirement and the appointment of conservative judges, a massive change in federal jurisprudence can take place.”

Begin sarcasm: Amen, brother Pat. The sooner God smites these blasphemous sinners the sooner we can institute Bible study as a required course in all public schools, round up pregnant women in internment camps in order to force them to carry to term, and make the lives of gays and lesbians miserable. Maybe we can even deport everyone who isn’t an Evangelical Christian. Or ban interracial marriage. Or, as a gift to Jerry Falwell, we could institute a federal ban on that sodomite, Tinky Winky. You see the potential for miracles?! End sarcasm.

On a separate note, I think it heart-warming that Pat Robertson can still find time for a little cooking in the middle of such a crusade.

    Jon Stewart did a good job with this story last night on the Daily Show. He introduced it by saying that, sadly enough, we have received another videotape from a religious fundamentalist calling for the deaths of top members of the American government. Then he showed the 700 Club clip. He then referred to Robertson as the “mullah from Virginia Beach.”

    Does that mean that if God does not cause the justices to resign, that God is not on Pat’s side of these issues?

    Back! Back! Blasphemer! Back to your Democratic, liberal, demon-infested warren! In the name of Phyllis Schlafly, get ye gone!
