Who's in the News? It's PAT!

I have an unhealthy obsession with documenting the idiocy of Pat Robertson. Today I didn't even have to go looking for it. The AP had it right there waiting for me.

Television evangelist Pat Robertson said Monday on his live news-and-talk program "The 700 Club" that Islam is not a religion of peace, and that radical Muslims are "satanic."

[Regarding the Danish Cartoons] He remarked that the outpouring of rage elicited by cartoons "just shows the kind of people we're dealing with. These people are crazed fanatics, and I want to say it now: I believe it's motivated by demonic power. It is satanic and it's time we recognize what we're dealing with."

Robertson also said that "the goal of Islam, ladies and gentlemen, whether you like it or not, is world domination."

The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, called Robertson's new comments "grossly irresponsible."

"At a time when inter-religious tensions around the world are at an all-time high, Robertson seems determined to throw gasoline on the fire," Lynn said in a statement.
Thanks for clearing that up, Pat. Obviously you haven't really addressed the fact that Islam's growth into Europe and North America only frightens you because they're displacing Christianity as the religious 'power' in traditionally cChristian areas. Every good Dominionist knows that the only religion that's supposed to dominate the world is your own twisted version of Christianity.

Surely the words flowing from the mouth of Pat Robertson have nothing to do with the rise in anti-Muslim hate crimes in the United States. The Council on American-Islamic Relations blames "a growing use of anti-Muslim rhetoric by some political, religious and media figures." That's you Pat. You're inciting violence, just like the 'satanists' you're condemning. Asshat.
