Pat Robertson’s God Is A Monster
“You could not be more right. I was a little put off by your remark about the Christian god being a bigot, but unfortunately that’s the sort of god these people are portraying. This small elite is giving the rest of the world that we are a bunch of knuckle dragging fundamentalists. Rush, Robertson, and the Bush family all make Christianity look bad, and they make America look bad. Bad? Okay that’s an understatement, but I will refrain from profanity.” – Andrew
Thanks for the feedback Andrew,
Please make no mistake. I believe the Supreme Being to be the ultimate in compassion and understanding. But that is not the same entity that somebody like Pat Robertson talks about when he makes the suggestion that god is punishing the people of Haiti for their past deeds. Mr. Robertson believes the people of Haiti made a deal with the devil to stop being the slaves of white people. And the devil granted their wish. It seems that Pat Robertson’s god wants black people to be white people’s slaves. Mr. Robertson has the mental reasoning of a superstitious bigot goading the crowd into burning witches back in Salem. You can just imagine him yelling in the cobblestone street that god wants us to burn the witches! He has the type of god that lives in a volcano and needs annual appeasement with a virgin. If this is the type of god that we have to look forward to in the afterlife then I’ll take hell any day of the week.
But of course, the Supreme Being isn’t so petty. We all have a tendency to create god in our own image. Mr. Robertson created his god in his own somewhat unique combination of bigotry, judgment, and loathing for black people.
It is unfortunate that conservatives take such a hard line when it comes to the black community. We are not valued as people of equals, only pawns in their political games. It might be true that liberals don’t really care about the black community either. But at least they don’t wear their bigotry and hatred on their sleeves in bold bright colors like these conservatives do.
