Okay boys and girls!
Turn off your irony meters, unplug them, take them out in the back yard and, if you don't have a sandbagged bunker, dig a hole at least three feet deep, place the meter at the bottom and fill the hole with fast drying concrete ...
Randall Terry, founder of Operation Rescue, organized a demonstration outside the Washington D.C. Headquarters of Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network because of Pat's endorsement of Rudy Giuliani's Presidential bid.
"I am literally sick to my stomach over Dr. Robertson's decision,” Terry stated. “He wrote a forward to my book, Operation Rescue, I have been on the 700 Club, I have spoken at Regent University, CBN helped me get started in radio, and the attorneys of the ACLJ have been heroic advocates for our pro-life mission.Whew! If you're still there after that, you have correctly protected your meter. And that's among the nicer things the Righteous Right's been saying about ol' Hurricane Pat:
"This is what happens when a leader puts party ahead of principle; it corrupts ones ability to reason consistently. We can only pray that this horrific decision of Dr. Robertson is ignored by the 'Christian Right' and the 'Christian Coalition,' and that he comes to his senses quickly. God have mercy on him, and give long life to him."
Reverend Wiley Drake, pastor of First Baptist Church of Buena Park and former Second Vice President of the Southern Baptist Convention, called upon his church and all Christians to boycott CBN and the 700 Club. Pastor Drake said there will be a special nationwide prayer meeting daily to pray that Robertson will "repent and return to his first love" especially concerning the unborn and the homosexual agenda in America.I didn't know Pat's first love was the homosexual agenda! Hey, maybe those rumors about Rudy are true and Pat ... naaaw!
I wonder when one of Pat's former friends is going to say something like:
If there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God, you just rejected Him from your ministry. And don’t wonder why He hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just endorsed God out of your ministry. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for His help because he might not be there.Turnabout, after all ...
