Hallelujah, the Lord Giveth, the Lord Taketh away!
And so religious broadcaster Pat Robertson wants it to be so, except of course he speaketh on behalf of the Lord, calling for the return of one particular soul to Hell.
He proposes the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, because old Chavez, like Saddam Hussein with his "WMD", represents a clear and present danger to the good ole United States of America. In fact he termed Chavez as a ‘terrific danger’. Wow!
Robertson is founder of the Christian Coalition of America and also a former presidential candidate. He is also a staunch ally of President Bush. And may we here thank the Lord he wasn’t elected President of the USA.
I bet he carries with him at all times a copy of the Old Testament with all its smiting and smoting and burning of human sacrifices– Hallelujah!
Robertson went on to explain why he thought that satanic Chavez was a ‘terrific danger’ to poor little USA. He reckoned Chavez is turning oil-rich Venezuela (incidentally 5th in world’s oil production) into a "launching pad for communist infiltration and Muslim extremism.''
Hey, what about the Buddhists, Hindus and Sikhs, and not forgetting the Shinto Japanese?
Not only is Robertson, being the good ole Christian he is, advocating assassination he has also demonstrated his economic management by declaring that “We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator.”
"It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... and I don't think any oil shipments will stop."
Holy Moses! Did I hear him just mention “oil shipments”?
Hallelujah, the Lord Giveth, the USA Taketh away!
