Pat Robertson is emphasizing an odd aspect of his religious faith, calling for the assassination of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez on his show, "The 700 Club." Seriously, I'm not making this up. Something to do with Venezuela trying to become "a launching pad for communist infiltration and Muslim extremism." Yeah, whatever, Pat. But assassination is a swell approach. WWJD? Call for political assassinations, clearly.
The AP article mentions some of Pat's other insightful remarks, such as the 2003 highlight that feminism pushes women to "kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." Although I'm a diehard feminist, I have yet to kill my child (or anyone else's for that matter—this probably casts my feminist credentials into doubt). I haven't done the witchcraft thing, but I enjoy Halloween and liked Willow's spellcasting on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Destroy capitalism? Sadly, I have failed there, too. I am an American consumer and I haven't invited Castro or any Maoists to overtake the American government. Become a lesbian? I'll pass. But some of my best friends, as they say, lean that way. Can I still be in The Feminist Club? Please don't kick me out. I don't think The 700 Club would have me.
