Who Would Jesus Assassinate?

We all know that Pat Robertson is not the sort of Christian who preaches peace, love and understanding. When he's not organizing a prayer offensive to have god kill a liberal supreme court justice, or saying that gays are to blame for abortion, he's calling for the assassination of tanother country's president. Is he calling for the assassination of some genocidal African warlord? Perhaps an Islamic despot in one of the 'stans? Is it Kim Jong Il? Of course not. If Pat can sympathize with anything, it's despotism. But apparently straight talk about how trade agreements screw the poor countries, criticism of Bush and US imperialism and giving some power back to the poor people is enough to make a man of god like Pat want to kill Venezuela president Hugo Chavez.

Ah, good ol' Pat. Always reminding us that The Land of The Free is perfectly capable of producing cultural figureheads of tremendous political and financial power who are also completely insane.

I remember when I first read about Pat's comments regarding the Equal Rights Amendment, how he swore that it would lead to cannabilism, among other things.

If Jesus was around, Pat would probably be the first guy to get tossed out of the temple(s).

I have a big picture on my notice board in work here, that says "Who would Jesus bomb". I work in an office partially populated by well-meaning but Republican Christians..

Is it a sin to kill a democraticly elected leader? I'd like to know, because I have one in mind that hasn't been helping his country the way I think he should be.

With people like Robertson, it all depends on the politics of that democratically elected leader.

LT, yes! They do! :-) Actually, they do... the see me as sort of whimsically cute, and different. They put it down to my Englishness, which is how I get a way with a lot of things.. lol

Dr Forbush, dilemma, huh? Reminds me of that joke. You see a drowning man in the ocean, and as you get closer, you realise it is George Bush, and you have a camera, and you realise, you could either stop and help, or you could take a photograph for the papers, and sell for much $'s. I'd like to ask you a question. Would you use black and white film or colour?
