more on patty

robertson's latest is that he is now saying that he never said "assassinate" and that "take him out" could mean a great deal of things including "kidnapping" [which is another crime he is asking people to commit] i wonder what he said about clinton and his famous "that depends on what you mean by 'it'" statement - oh, yea robertson said clinton knew the "it" thing, but was trying to get away with bad behavior - patty, sounds like your doing the same - here, let me refresh your memory and give you the transcript of what you said:

"He has destroyed the Venezuelan economy and he is going to make that a launching pad for communist infiltration and, and Muslim extremists all over the continent. You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we are trying to assassinate him I think we really aught to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper then starting a war; and augh I don't think any oil shipments will stop. But this man is a terrific danger, and the Unite...this is in our sphere of influence and we can't let this happen. We have the Monroe Doctrine, we have other doctrines that we have announced and without question this is a dangerous enemy to our south, controlling a huge pool of oil that can hurt us very badly. We have the ability to take him out [IN CONNECTION TO ASSASSINATE HIM" STATEMENT MADE BEFORE], and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another 200billion dollar war to get rid of one, you know, strong armed dictator. A whole lot easier to have some covert operative to do the job and get it over with." [bold face and cap face comments were added]

so, patty now you lie about what you say, even when it is on video with you mouthing the words - bad form bro.

robertson never apologized for calling for the death of a leader, and he only side-stepped the issue by lying about what he said in the first place. this is disheartening. robertson, even though i disagree with his theology, is a person in the public eye concerning our faith - and if he is unwilling to step to the plate and admit wrong doing, he is no better then those he is condemning for lying and not following christian teachings. robertson has moved from a voice in the church, to a voice for terror and violence.

the more robertson talks, the better i feel about droppin labels...the church has a very bad case of laryngitis because her voice has been hijacked by the lust for political power...that's not to say that christians cant belong to a particular party, however...unfortunately, the media totally misses how diverse the Church is because a powerful few have all the access to mass media..go figure..

and i feel your spam pain...i had to do the same thing yesterday...geeesh
