What would Jesus do?

Apparently, Jesus would assassinate Hugo Chavez.

Quote:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested on-air that American operatives assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to stop his country from becoming "a launching pad for communist infiltration and Muslim extremism."

"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability," Robertson said Monday on the Christian Broadcast Network's "The 700 Club."



That's funny. No really, it is.

See, Jesus taught the following:

* Killing is bad
* Giving to the poor is good
* Greed is bad


So, how is it that the modern Christian ignores all of that and decides that killing is good, giving to the poor is evil, and being greedy is godly?

I don't get it.

I found this a while ago..

Quote:
The Dispensationalists who preach Armageddon Theology are a relatively new
cult - less than 200 years old. There are four main aspects of their belief
system:

1) They are anti-Semitic. They profess a fervent love for Israel. Their
support of Israel does not, however, arise out of a true love for the Jews
and their sufferings. Rather, their "love and support" is based on their
wanting Israel "in place" for the "Second Coming of Christ," when they
expect most Jews to be destroyed.

2) The Dispensationalists have a very narrow view of God and the six billion
people on the planet. They worship a tribal god who is only concerned with
two peoples: Jews and Christians, whose said tribal God intends to pit
against one another for His favor. The other five billion people on the
planet are just not on this God's radar except to be killed in the final
battle.

3) The Dispensationalists are certain right down to their bones that they
understand the Mind of God. They provide a scenario, like a movie script,
that unfolds with time sequences, epochs or "dispensations" all ending
happily with an end-time escapism called the Rapture - for a 'chosen few'
like themselves. They appeal to those who want to feel that they are on the
"inside" of a "special group" with secret, profound knowledge. This desire
for certitude causes millions of the followers of Dispensationalism to trust
their leaders to an extraordinary degree.

4) Fatalism is the fourth aspect of Dispensationalists. The world, they say,
is getting steadily worse and we can do nothing, so there is no point in
doing anything. The teachers teach about the wrath of a vengeful god and
declare that God does not want us to work for peace, that God demands that
we wage a nuclear war: Armageddon that will destroy the planet.

The frightening by-product of these beliefs is that, since the Cult is in
Power in the United States, it is so easy to create the very situations
which are described, thus ensuring the fulfillment of the ideas of the
Dispensationalists: the Cult that wants to Create Armageddon and needs 5
billion people on the planet to go willingly to the sacrificial altar, and
the Muslims have been chosen to be first.

This is the the Most Dangerous Cult in the World.

The funny thing is that he said it would be much cheaper to assassinate. What a nut! Didn't even mention morals.

I think Jesus would be for the killing. Jesus isn't a dirty communist, now is he?

Pat Robertson... for the win!

Wow.

A televangelist says something outrageous and unchristian and gets himself mentioned on a dozen news pages, so you register your own take on the statement. . .which is exactly the same as everyone else's take on the statement. The only thing even remotely interesting about Robertson's statement is that you find it shocking enough to warrant a post's worth of hand-wringing.

Gee, what's next on the crazy train-ride that's Penton journal? You gonna complain about celebrities who have a run-ins with photographers? You gonna muse about how "American Idol" is anti-intellectual? Ooooh, maybe you should complain about how hot dogs come in packages of ten but hot dog buns come in bags of eight!


Once again, your journal buried the needle on my bore-o-meter.



I know what'll show me. Change your journal byline to something sarcastic like "don't read it if you don't like it".

Yeah, that'll fix my little red wagon.

Not to liken the ill-considered comments of a televangelist to a massacre, but this reminds me of a few incidents:

The Columbine Massacre
The Janet Jackson Nipple Thing
The World Trade Center Attack

What do these things have in common?

The perpetrator(s) of each got what they (presumably) wanted: more attention.

He is entitled to his right to free speech. I think he's a disgusting bigot of a man, and eventually he will get what he deserves.

What I find funny about Hattan's posts is that they are just as boring as he claims mine to be; ie: I always know what he's going to say!

Irony: it's what's for dinner.
