Crazy Pat Robertson

The loony Pat Robertson:

Two years ago, I felt an urgent need for people to unite and pray for change in
the Supreme Court. So, in July of 2003, The 700 Club launched Operation Supreme
Court Freedom, a nationwide 21-day prayer campaign.
O'Connor announced her retirement this summer, so Robertson says his prayers are answered:
Tens of thousands of people responded to this massive prayer offensive and cried out to the Lord to change the court. And God heard those prayers!

So if I pray for rain today, and it rains tomorrow....

Anyway, the "prayer points" are just creepy:

Pray that those who oppose biblical truth would retire from the Supreme Court and be replaced by those who honor God's law.

Sandra Day O'Connor apparently opposed "biblical truth" (whatever the hell that means).

Pray that any plan of the enemy for the Senate confirmation hearing would be thwarted. Take authority over the schemes of Satan concerning the Supreme Court.

So people that think John Roberts ought to be questioned and held to account for his views, whether favorable or unfavorable is the "enemy" and minions of "Satan." That's about 61-64% of people overall while nearly 2/3 think he should state how he would rule on past cases. Since 2/3 also support the upholding of Roe v. Wade it appears that Robertson thinks a majority of Americans are the "enemy" or "Satan" (no surprise from someone that said federal judges are the biggest threat to America).

What ever happened to "judge not lest ye be judged"? Or "let he who is without sin cast the first stone"? The reason people think religious people are quacks is because religious people let Pat Robertson speak for them. Reject this lunatic's self-aggrandizing proclamation to speak for "people of faith" and you'll get the common courtesy you demand. Let Pat Robertson continue to speak for you and you'll get the ridicule you deserve.
