Pat Robertson: God will punish Dover

Robertson warns Pennsylvania voters of God's wrath
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- Conservative Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson told citizens of a Pennsylvania town that they had rejected God by voting their school board out of office for supporting "intelligent design" and warned them Thursday not to be surprised if disaster struck.

"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 his daily television show broadcast from Virginia, "The 700 Club."

"And don't wonder why He hasn't helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask for His help because he might not be there," he said.

In voting on Tuesday, eight Dover, Pennsylvania, school board members up for re-election lost their seats after trying to introduce a statement on "intelligent design" to high school biology students.

It's too bad no group of voters can get rid of Robertson. It's about time he got elected to the afterlife. Does that sound harsh? It's no harsher than the things he says about offing Hugo Chavez, for one, or subjecting Dover residents to natural disasters. If an eye for an eye is this man's game, then it's perfectly legimiate to say that this man has got to go.
