Pat Robertson does it again…

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of hearing Pat Robertson saying anything that goes wrong for people who don’t agree with him is “God’s punishment.” Too many people around the world believe his statements reflect the opinion of the majority of Americans. He makes all white male Protestants look like arrogant, intolerant, and uneducated zealots. The impression he gives, whether it’s true or not, is that he would like to see the Crusades and the Inquisition all over again, but that he knows he would never get away with actually saying so. Unfortunately, he is so high profile that when he makes his bigoted statements the whole world hears him. So now he’s saying that a high profile leader, respected in his own country, suffered a stroke as “God’s punishment” for giving the Palestinians land they have been living on for years, in an attempt to bring about peace.
Pat Robertson is an embarassment to the United States. Worse, his high profile and intolerant statements help to inflame the current international anger toward the U.S., and give the terrorists even more recruitment material. He should retire, and never make a public statement again.
