Very brief thoughts on Pat Robertson
I really don't want to waste much time thinking about the Rev. Pat Robertson, but here's all I'm willing to devote to the matter. The first thing I would do if I had the power is that I would take away his “Reverend” title. The title presumes that he is someone to be revered—I can’t imagine who could respect the man, much less revere him. How could a man of God condemn the Haitian people and say that they brought the earthquake on themselves by some pact they made with the devil a couple hundred years ago? That’s just plain silly. But mostly I just ignore the man. He’s a gnat, a silly buffoon not taken seriously by anyone with a brain and a heart. That said, I’m not going to belabor the point—he’s a goofball and he doesn’t deserve any more attention or energy. Let him just wallow in his own stupidity—that’s punishment enough.
