Pat Robertson: you are about to enter another dimension

Submitted for your approval - one Pat Robertson, religious icon, evangelist and would-be politician who is headed down the road towards that legendary purgatory known as self-parody.

We come upon Mr. Robertson as he defends one Charles Taylor (not to be confused with Chuck Taylor), leader of Liberia and foe of most normal people. Pat sits at his broad desk on the set of 700 Club, chiding President Bush for asking Taylor to step down.

Robertson has motives other than the political well-being of a tyranical leader. Besides the motive of wanting every country in the world to be a Christian one, Robertson also has business ties to Liberia.

Such haughty motives for a man who deems himself to be a paragon of moral virtue. Guided by money? For shame.

But our protaganist of this story does not stop at mere dictator-loving. He has rounded that corner of sanity and has walked straight into the arms of Satan himself.

Now, struck by greed not only for money but for the world to be consumed by his own morals and religious beliefs, he has taken hold of the hand of overseer of Hell, who has guided him - for it could not be the opponent of Satan who has done such a thing as this - to write a letter wishing death upon citizens of this country, the very citizens who wear the robes of justice and make decisions that cause Robertson's head to ache with the pain of the righteous.

In short, by its distorted reading of the religion clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and its "discovery" of emanations from the 14th Amendment called "penumbras," the Supreme Court is bringing upon this nation the wrath of God when the precious liberties that we love so much may be taken away from all of us.

Would you join with me and many others in crying out to our Lord to change the Court? If we fast and pray and earnestly seek God's face, then He will hear our prayer and give us relief.

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.

In the twilight zone of Pat Robertson's world, we are free to take liberty and look into the mind of Mr. Robertson as he sits at his desk penning this letter. We see him chewing on the fact that the three justices he wants to be rid of are either old or infirmed. What exactly does Robertson wish for these people? Your narrator assumes death. You may assume otherwise. Either way, we still have a man who thinks the world should be ruled through his vision, through his beliefs and ideas.

He walks the road of the right, but finds himself at a fork in the road. Does he choose the path of being true to the word he preaches, or does he choose the path where his dreams of religious dictatorship and dollars tainted with the blood of the enslaved lie?

Stay tuned, as we watch Pat Robertson enter the morally obtuse Twilight Zone.

I think you're over-reacting a bit when it comes to what he "wishes". The quote you posted there says "Would it not be possible for God to put it in the minds of these three judges that the time has come to retire?" Clearly he's not wishing death on these three, but wishing they'd simply retire due to either old age or medical conditions.

That said... let me make it plain that I find Robertson a ridiculous representative of Christendom. sigh

Not to requote myself, but I find it odd that a good Christian man like Pat would pray for them to retire rather than, oh, something like that they be healed of their infirmities.

Master eh? I could get used to that.

So conflicted - on the one hand, strict constructionism is a GOOD thing, and something the SC needs more of; on the other hand, given the choice between strict constructionism and the opportunity to have Christian theocracy legislated from the bench, one wonders which one our ol' buddy Pat would choose...

I have the same deep appreciation for all of these men of God. May we all pray they get what they deserve and leave the Supreme Court alone.
