Go away, Pat
Televangelist and hurricane wrangler, Pat Robertson, is not pleased with the results of Tuesday's schoolboard election in Dover, PA.
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.

All eight Dover, Pa., school board members up for re-election were defeated Tuesday after trying to introduce "intelligent design"... as an alternative to the theory of evolution.

"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."


"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."

This is not the first time Robertson has predicted that the wrath of God will be visited on anyone who disagrees with Pat. It probably won't be the last. It would be easy to dismiss Robertson as a silly and deluded extremist, except for the fact that millions listen to him and send him vast amounts of money. A maniac with money and followers should not be ignored.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Diety and Grand Architect of the Universe had a few words for Mr. Robertson.
God denied having any links to conservative Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson yesterday after He received reports that Mr. Robertson told residents of Dover, P.A., that they had rejected God by voting their school board out of office for supporting "intelligent design" and warned them of His wrath. Sources close to the Higher Being say that He is "tired" of Mr. Robertson and wants him to stop using His name.
