...may I say....   posted by Razib @ 11/10/2005 06:35:00 PM

Statements like this, "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" (i.e., voted the Dover pro-ID school board out) make it a lot harder sometimes to enthusiastically reject the facile equivalence between Christian conservative nuttiness and Islamic conservative nuttiness. Robertson isn't encouraging people to bomb abortion clinics, but he obviously does live in a different cognitive world. Sometimes I wonder if the only chapter of the New Testament he has read is Revelation, but then I remember that he is a Pentecostal, so readin', writin' and 'rithmetic go out the door when the Holy Ghost comes a callin'.
