Watch Your Back

Pat Robertson provides us with more evidence, as if we needed it, that God loves you… until He kills you.

As reported in these pages (a.k.a. cut and paste from the Times), science was declared the victor in its battle against ignorance in Dover, PA this past Tuesday. And even though God designed our brains Himself to function so highly as to allow us to use logic and the scientific method to uncover the answers to millions of life’s mysteries, it would appear that it pisses Him off when we do so.

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson warned residents of a rural Pennsylvania town Thursday that disaster may strike there because they "voted God out of your city" by ousting school board members who favored teaching intelligent design.

"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God. You just rejected him from your city," Robertson said on the Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club."

Later Thursday, Robertson issued a statement saying he was simply trying to point out that "our spiritual actions have consequences."

"God is tolerant and loving, but we can't keep sticking our finger in his eye forever," Robertson said. "If they have future problems in Dover, I recommend they call on Charles Darwin. Maybe he can help them."
Jesus! God can be such a drama queen.
