I'd pay :-)

Lumping a religion, conservative radical with three relatively benign liberals? Give me a break, Harry Belafonte? Seriously...

But by your rationale, if you really wanted to see a fight of radicals, you would want to pay to see it between the following:


Actually, I'd pay big money just to see those first three go at it.

I personally find some amusement in watching him talk, mainly cause he sounds like a stuttering/blabbering idiot. But yeah the guy is quite a nut, I'm glad that in the last few years people are noticing him more for the person he really is.

The thing that bothers me is that he's been saying these things for years. It's not a new thing with him. And yet until recently, the right has given him enormous sway with those in power. It's only in the last year or so they've started to acknowledge that he's a complete nut.

Personally, I think they should've realized his true colors after he described feminism as a

socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.

or when he claimed that Sept 11 was caused by

pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, lesbians, the ACLU and the People for the American Way.

Heck, as early as 1985 he claimed he deflected hurricanes with the power of his prayer. Perhaps that was the time to distance yourself from him. It's too late now.

You can't blame this on alzheimers. He's just nuts. He always has been.

on edit: the comment about Sept 11 was made by Falwell - Robertson merely agreed with him. Sorry.

JERUSALEM -- US television evangelist Pat Robertson's claim that Ariel Sharon's stroke was an act of God has triggered a bout of soul-searching in Israel about the Jewish state's relationship with right-wing Christians.

Robertson, a hellfire-and-brimstone preacher known for his controversial remarks, triggered a storm of protest last week by suggesting that Sharon had been struck down for overseeing the pullout from Gaza, the first-ever Israeli withdrawal from Palestinian land.

Could he get any more offensive?

His comments, hours after Sharon suffered a brain haemorrhage, prompted Israel to cancel a $50-million contract with Robertson to build a new Christian heritage center in the Galilee.

or stupid?

Yes and Yes

Without a doubt, Robertson is still way down on the Offensive and Stupid List. Although Robertson's recent comments did put a scare into the current leader of the O&S List, forcing him to reaffirm his lead with a new plot.

Wow...I saw that guy's supporters at the 2004 Inauguration in DC, with signs about "God hates fags", "God is America's Terrorist" and "Thank God for Tsunami." They burned an American flag, and the police had to step in before an angry mob stomped them. :-o

I agree though with whoever said they find what he says amusing and it's interesting to see what kind of garbage he comes up with next; or, how many natural disasters he can blame on gay people.

The only troubling thing is that people listen to him and take what he says as their own thoughts. Actually, that's how a lot of people in this country operate; if some televangelist or church preacher said it, it's gotta be true.

Losing 50 million though to Robertson has to sting a little...
