Wait a minute? The creationists base their entire attack on science and want to rewrite textbooks because of a 17th-century archbishop? On a guy who was combining religion and science at a time when Galileo was being persecuted by the church for saying the Earth went around the Sun?
How does he know the shooter’s religion … or lack thereof?
Here’s what we do know:
The man who allegedly murdered six people at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee yesterday, identified in media reports as Wade Michael Page, was a frustrated neo-Nazi who had been the leader of a racist white-power band.
I know when disaster strikes, Robertson finds it easy to make things up (911 happened because God is mad at gays and the ACLU; the Haitian earthquake happened because at nation’s people worship the devil), but I don’t think atheists would decorate their bodies with religious symbols:
Reports also indicated that Page had a number of tattoos, including one that said “9/11” and a Celtic knot, which is commonly used a symbol of the Christian Holy Trinity.
And Robertson obviously has no problem with guns, apparently because guns don’t kill people … imagined atheists with guns kill people.
Asked what a man should do whose wife has Alzheimer’s, an increasingly decrepit Pat Robertson says, “I know it sounds cruel but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over.”
In a week of Republicans cheering for record executions and wooing for the uninsured to drop dead – does this even get a blip on our disgust radar?
