I'm not too sure that "spin" = "truth."

I can't believe he actually said such a thing. I mean, what good does that do anyone? It doesn't help anyone nor do anything for the relief effort. It was such a waste of time and even people who supported him were offended my that comment. It was full of hatred. I bet if he lost someone to such a disaster, there would be a reason as opposed to "God punishing" them. Ugh, so messed up. He might as well just say, "I don't like black people and they got what they deserved." We all know he wants to say it, so he might as well say it. The man is a religious freak.

This clip from the Daily Show pretty much sums it up for me.

And Robertson unfiltered.

As this fellow seems to be quite an expert on the devil, perhaps God will send him on an appropriate afterlife-long seminar?

Yes! In a room filled with uncomfortable chairs, forced to watch a bad powerpoint presentation. Worse: no ice in the water pitchers!

Would that be a powerpoint presentation of his offensive and heartless views.

Livingston - I went online to watch The Daily Show as I missed it on Friday (it airs a day later here) and I have to say that I thought Jon Stewart was brilliant. He usually is but he was particularly good in that slot.

And good for him for calling out MSNBC for their not-exactly neutral commentary!

Even my particularly conservative Christian friends are saying Pat Robertson is an idiot. And that is unusual for them. One wrote on my facebook status that God is suing Robertson for impersonating a Christian.
