US Taliban leader says God will punish Dover, PA.
Previously we noted how the people of Dover, PA voted out of office the school board that imposed the creationist theory of "intelligent design".
Now one of the leading leaders of the Taliban, Pat Robertson, who proves that design is not intelligent every time he opens his mouth, has attacked the voters of Dover.
Robertson who has become a millionaire getting gullible fundamentalists to send money to his so-called ministry told his television audience; "I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover, if there is a disaster in your area don't turn to God, you just rejected him from your city. And don't wonder why he hasn't helped you when your problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask his help because he might not be there."
I think I can pretty much guarantee he won't be there. But he was never there. He was never anywhere Pat.
Robertson is the loony who has called for the US government to assassinate people and said that if Orlando, Florida allowed the rainbow flag to be flown to celebrate Gay Day that they risked hurricans, earthquakes or terrorist bombs.
Odd he thinks that god is so vicious as to send an earthquake to punish one city. In the process the divine one manages to hurt huge numbers of innocent people. But then he supposedly thought he had to have a "perfect man" tortured to death in order to forgive sinners. So a god that swats innocents is part and parcel of the fundie Taliban. But as we've noted before the old man in the sky is getting feeble and has bad eyesight. He allegedly swatted New Orleans recently due to the gay presence in the French Quarter. Alas the French Quarter went pretty much unharmed while neighborhoods of poor but pious folk were destroyed and churches collapsed.
It should also be noted that the voters didn't vote out god. They voted out the Republicans. And no matter what the nutters on the Religious Right think the Republican Party is not god and George Bush is no Jesus Christ.
Now I don't think the old man in the sky is there. But if I'm wrong and he is up there welding an angry hammer then I'd have to conclude he hates Republicans. The states that have been hit over and over with disasters have all voted for George Bush, who claims to be working for the old dude. Florida has helped put George in the White House twice and elected his slightly more intelligent brother as governor. It's hit by so many hurricanes I can't keep track. God is a Democrat apparently.
