BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
Douchebaggery At Its Finest!

On The 700 Club, Pat Robertson said of Islam:
"I want to say it again, and again, and again: Islam is not a religion, it is a political system meant on -- bent on world domination, not a religion. It masquerades as a religion, but the religion covers a worldwide attempt to exercise power and to subjugate the world to their way of thinking. They want a caliphate as they had once before; they want all people to be subjected to Sharia and to live under their rules and their domination. It is every bit as insidious as communism, perhaps more so. But to say, 'Well, it's a religion, and you should leave a religion alone,' that's just not the way it works."
Robertson also warned:
"those that don't have any faith": "[L]et me tell you what they're going to do to you will be more horrible than anything you can imagine. And you better understand that Christianity is the way to freedom and not to slavery. This other thing is the way to slavery, not freedom." Before making the comments, Robertson stated: "Well, we've been saying it, but it looks like the political correctness in our society won't let you say it. They make fun of people who speak out boldly against Islam."

Unlike modern fundamentalist Christians, right Pat?

Actually, you could very easily substitute "fundamentalist Christianity" for "Islam" in all cases there, with some tweaking for "caliphate" and "Sharia law"....and it would be a *PERFECT* description of what Pat Robertson and his fellow fundies are all about.

But of course, you already knew that. *GRIN*

You could say the same thing about Christianity... minus the Sharia detail.

You stop insulting horses RIGHT NOW mister, or I'ma have to spank you. *stern look*

Oh, but it doesn't matter that Christianity does the same thing because Christians are right!

Indeed - especially if by 'right' you mean petulantly absurd, why then yes - yes indeed!

As a veteran, an Army wife, a woman, a bisexual, and an ATHEIST, I say to Pat Robertson: Just shut up already.

Indeed - if only he would!

I think there'd have to be more people than just us telling him. Wouldn't it be great if we could have like, a Million-Freethinker March in front of his home or the main place where he preaches from and we could chant, "Shut the hell up! Shut the hell up!" and then it'd be covered by the news and we'd have Keith Olbermann and Jon Stewart and such backing us up.
