Moral Contradictions

I'm deferring...

...to Jon Stewart's coverage of Pat Robertson's comments on Hugo Chavez. The effect of finding the truth through so many channels of mis-information is spell-bounding.

  • Yeah, I don't get over to his blog as often as I should. He is very wise.

  • And again..
    Why to liberals chose to have back of an anti-American dictator, who threw a coup-d'etat, against that of a pro-American Christian minister?

    Liberalism=an excuse to do whatever you want, and blame it on your party.

  • Too Conservative - this isn't about backing dictators (even that assertion is disputed) - this is about a "pro-American Christian minister" being a little too American and not enough a Christian.

    If we put the 10 Commandments up everywhere, do you think Pat Robertson won't advocated cold-blooded murder anymore?

  • Cold blooded murder?

    Pat Robertson is a good Christian man. Regardless of how you lefties try to portray him as.

    A dictator, with an army , who hates America...

  • Pat Robertson gives me the creeps.
    A good Christian man wouldn't call for the killing of anyone. Especially on national television. Who funds him anyway?

  • There isn't anything liberal about following the clear command of the Gospel. Jesus told us to love our enemies and to pray for those who abuse us.

    Clearly, there are those today who prefer nationalism over Gospel obedience.

    God, the Father of all, Whose Son commanded us to love our enemies: Lead them and us from prejudice to truth; deliver them and us from hatred, cruelty, and revenge; and in Your good time enable us all to stand reconciled before You; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

  • Jillian,

    Robertson funds himself. I think you hit the heart of the issue. There is no asterik beside the 10 Commandments saying "Thou shalt not murder *unless they are anti-American". Again, mixing politics and religion is very dangerous and should be done with care. I thank Pat Robertson for pointing this out.

    Monk, thank you as always. I'm glad I'm not the only one who prefers to place God above all things, even country, though it can be difficult at times.

    TC - I'm a Christian, not a leftie. Personally I think it's hilarious you think I am a leftie, but maybe only in relation to how far to the right you are. I am "moderate", as in I weigh each issue based on my Christian beliefs and personal observations and thoughts instead of making knee-jerk pronouncements without forethought. However, if struggling to find Christian justification for the advocation of assassination makes me a "leftie" in your book, then I hope your world is a happy one.
