It's not the question of whether he is a Christian. There are many flavours of Christianity and the only requirement for membership is to say you are one.

No, the problem, the deep awful problem that is sickening is that when a public figure comes out with this superstitious drivel it legitimises others to do nothing in the face of appalling human suffering.
He has the blood of innocents on his hands now.


(Never had any problem with your faith Lali. I respect you enormously for sticking in with us when we say uncomfortable things about what you hold important. It is a truly Christian behaviour.
This needs a discussion one day if you are up to it. I see no reason why atheists, agnostics and believers can't disagree and still stay friendly.)

(As always, what Tosh said. :P Seriously though, Lali - I respect you enormously. Unlike our old village vicar, who wouldn't speak up when pressed on his beliefs, you don't seem to make assumptions, you're willing to question things, and you're always so nice. Speaking to you and Freddy isn't just fun - I honestly find it educational :)).

:Wooper: Okay, this might call for a :grouphug: <sniff, sniff>

Tosh, you know I won't be able to resist a conversation like that.

I tried that on Hall of Fire, with my thread on The Nature of Your Deity. It worked out pretty good.

I thought so, too. Both of those threads were very interesting and friendly.

A poem directed at Pat Robertson performed as a piece of performance art:

Link with two videos - the bottom one with Robertson's 2012 prediction about the election, and the top one showing him expressing his shock at the outcome of the election

By the same rules that he would love to impose on all of us, Robertson should be burned alive as a false prophet.

How fortunate for him that we're better than he is.

Hey, remember this thread?

I tried to google what his 2015 prophecies were, and couldn't find them. Has he finally come to terms with his poor track record?

I did find this, however: Pat Robertson says God told him Ben Carson will be the next president

Quote:
“God came to me in a dream. He had a white robe and a white beard, and told me our next president would be another colored man,” said Robertson on “The 700 Club.” “I’m interpreting that to be Dr. Ben Carson. Unless, Barack Obama seeks a third term.”

Or God meant orange when he said "another colored."

Let's hope God was wrong about that...

I believe in God but am sad that someone like Pat Robertson is still around when people like Jonny and vison are not.

Sorry, I know being alive is not the barometer for righteousness. Just missing the compassion and sanity they brought to conversations, and how lacking that is from others I deal with.

You do have some real pieces of work on your FB page, E*. I'm sorry about that. I have them, too, though I've started blocking many of them, and I unfollowed a lot more. It's not that I don't want to hear opposing views; it's just that it can suck the joy and hope right out of your life if you get too much negativity going. And it often makes me angry, so I think that's probably not all that healthy.

I miss Jonny and vison, too. :hug:
