Such a loving guy

Yesterday night, televangelist Pat Robertson suggested that the United States assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Begin with the fact that Mr. Chavez is not some dictator who took power in a coup-- he was elected in a democracy by the majority of voters in Venezuela, and then, despite the best efforts of his opponents to force a mid-term referendum on his administration, won a smashing victory again-- from the people of Venezuela.

But that apparently doesn't matter to this 'man of God.' He is willing to murder a man because he doesn't agree with him politically.

That is everything there is to say. Pat Robertson believes that he can play God and ask for the government to murder a man he doesn't like.


Robertson on Monday: "If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think we really ought to go ahead and do it,...it's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war" (watch Robertson say it)

Robertson on Wednesday: 'I didn't say, 'assassination,'

Does he think people are stupid, or what?

Eli, I think the words by Robertson are very dangerous words. Perhaps because many do not see the Latin American Countries as they should be seen.

It is a new concept for the USA this, War on Terror, or whatever they are calling it this month, however this post about Missionary Work was well written.

Thanks for the post and I am sorry that I did not tell you...still working on it.
