The Embarassment That is Pat Robertson

Life-long blowhard Pat Robertson did not take long to embarass himself over the sad illness of Ariel Sharon. Robertson has decided that Sharon's stroke was the wrath of God, a divine punishment brought down because Sharon dared to divide God's land.

Why is it that whenever a tragic event happens in this world, Robertson must come out with inane statements that do nothing but make Christians look like dark-hearted fools. For a man who professes a devotion to the Bible, Robertson continually reveals almost no understanding of the Good Book's deeper meanings.

Sharon's illness should be mourned by all those who prefer true peace to continual suffering. If Christ taught us anything, it is that the greatest way a man can please God is to ease suffering. Sharon was walking that path and should be admired, not condemned.

Robertson is no spokesman for Christians. He is a fool who makes me think of 2 Corinthians 11:13-15. But that's probably giving him too much credit.
