Robertson warns town that he says rejected God

Pat Robertson--who I personally can't get enough of--is at it again:

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson warned residents of a rural Pennsylvania town Thursday that disaster may strike there because they "voted God out of your city" by ousting school board members who favored teaching intelligent design.

All eight Dover, Pa., school board members up for re-election were defeated Tuesday after trying to introduce "intelligent design" -- the belief that the universe is so complex that it must have been created by a higher power -- as an alternative to the theory of evolution.

"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," Robertson said on the Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club."

That certainly should have Auntie Em and Uncle Henry scratching their heads...

I used to hate this guy, but I am starting to love him. Let him keep talking - in fact, let's encourage him. The more a prominent religious leader like him says stupid things, the more people will refuse to be counted among the religious right. More votes coming from the head instead of the pews. And let Bush and company defend him.

My new maxim is fast becomming they always go too far. O'Reilly lost a whole city, and the greater part of our great Bay Area this week when he invited Al Queda to attack Coit tower. (By the way, Coit Tower is a tourist attraction that doesn't attract too many tourists compared to some other landmarks. So his comment was not just stupid, it was not well thought out either.)
