Yet another thing I don’t get about evangelism
Okay, Okay, I know I just updated, but then I read an article on aol that I feel I must comment on.
Here’s the headline: “Pat Robertson Calls for Assassination of Hugo Chavez”
Pat Robertson, for those who don’t know (a category that included me until minutes ago – although I am usually among the last to know these things) is a televangelist pastor who apparently thinks christianity translates into “violence and hatred are a-okay.” He thinks Chavez (president of Venezuela) is a major threat to the US who plans to make Venezuela “a launching pad for communist infiltration and muslim extremism,” (let’s not worry at all about evangelical christian extremism…) and we should just go ahead and assasinate him because “it’s a whole lot cheaper than starting a war.”
OKay, all together now…”WHAT?!?!” I would say more, but I am seriously at a loss for words.
On the bright side, this hasn’t stopped my day from being good. It is disturbing and upsetting, but overall I am still having a good day, so the positive attitude continues.
