Gays cause meteors

After Pat Robertson's revelation that the United States should assassinate the Democratically elected leader of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, a number of pissed-off patriots compared Robertson to the extremist clerics in other parts of the world.

Some network news programs followed with a book burning. No, not the Bible -- the dictionary. One segment -- a very level-headed one, if you ask me -- opened by bringing all this exaggerated speech back down by claiming that Robertson is not, as some have suggested, an extremist cleric. Norbizness has a 10 point list of Robertson's spectacularly unChristian lunacy that puts the lie to that bigoted inability to see that extremist clerics don't all wear Muslim garb. Unless of course Robertson isn't an ordained minister.

My favorite:


"On gay days at Disneyworld: 'I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes, and I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you, This is not a message of hate -- this is a message of redemption. But a condition like this will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring about terrorist bombs; it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor.'"
