Advocating killing, in the name of God...now where have I heard THAT before....Hmmmm........
Obviously Pat is working with a slightly different version of the Bible than I've previously viewed. I would love to hear what passage says its OK to assassinate the leader of another country for our own convenience.
This just goes to show that religious extremism - Christian, Jewish, Muslim or otherwise - is the REAL problem.
DAMN! This SUCKS! I just had to go to the next higher age bracket in my profile! :-(

What is really scary is that you can now walk into any GNC and see that psycho's face grinning at you over his "Pat's Diet Shake". I say people boycott GNC (except the one in Calabasas, CA that my best friend owns) until they drop the product

He's not advocating it in the name of God. He's not saying that "God commands you" or "You will go to heaven if..." or anything like that. Robertson has been sticking his nose into politics for a long time, and as far as I can tell, he was making a (stupid) policy statement not at all based on his capacity as a minister.

Of course, Chavez DOES at least deserve a slap in the head for comments such as this: "[People] have asked me how I can support Fidel if he's a dictator. But Cuba doesn't have a dictatorship — it's a revolutionary democracy." (source: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,166465,00.html
Yeah, right. How many democracies do you know have had the same leader for nearly 45 years who has never had to face a free election.
1) Islamic Republic of Afghanistan
2) Islamic Republic of Iran
3) Islamic Republic of Mauritania
4) Islamic Republic of Pakistan
That's it. Saudi Arabia is not a theocracy as it is a monarchy and monarchies are forbidden in Islam.
Isn't it interesting how the US strongly backs 3 of the 4 Islamic theocracies in the world?
Earlier this month, Mauritanians overthrew President Maaouya Ould Sid'Ahmed Taya while he was attending King Fahd's funeral. He was one of the most corrupt leaders in Africa and supported by guess who....the US. In 1992 and 1997, he held "elections" to make it appear as if his country was democratic. Yeah, he held elections alright... he'd have the results changed last minute so he won everytime...
Good riddance to bad rubbish...

Quoting N1120A (Reply 20): Sharia is not a true iteration of the Islamic religion.
Sharia is the interpretation of Islam as the law of the land, which is what the 1st amendment is written to prevent.
Quoting N1120A (Reply 20): The Bush regime is trying to make "faith-based" initiatives part of US law, which is inherently atheistic
NO NO NO!!!. U.S. is not "inherently atheistic". It is inherently secular. There is a very big difference. Being an atheist denotes that you have certain beliefs in regard to religion (namely that there isn't a God). It is no different, in that regard, than an other religion, as it presupposes a certain belief. U.S. law is intended to be secular - i.e. it is concerned with the secular world, and does not involve itself in imposing any form or religious belief on anyone (including atheism).
