Death By Jesus

Pat Robertson gives us another reason to fear a theocracy run by the lunatic fringe of the Christians in this country.
"You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it," Robertson said. "It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... and I don't think any oil shipments will stop."
Actually, I hesitate to lump Robertson, Dobson, et al into the same crowd as most Christians in this country and I am pretty sure Jesus would feel the same way. Robertson's statement illustrates very clearly my contention that the "American Taliban" would not hesitate to murder those of us that won't tremble in fear of eternal damnation merely because they say so. The only thing stopping them is the law. These people are bat shit crazy and can justify anything in their twisted world view. Try an experiment the next time you come across one and ask him or her if they see anything wrong with the American slaughter of thousands of Iraqi children and see what answer you get.
Here is a little free advice for someone born and raised in the south and who has been surrounded by these poisonous people all his 56 years. Turn your back to them at your own peril. Expecting altruism and behaviour from them consistent with the teachings of the historical Jesus is delusion. Any positive behaviour they demonstrate will be offset by twice as much vitiolic hate and intolerance in the very short term. If they appear sincere and caring then they think you either have money for them to steal or that you can benefit them in some other way. Assume the worst motivation and nine times out of ten you won't be disappointed.
