Crazy Pat Robertson Again!

This past Tuesday voters in Dover, Pennsylvania removed every school board member that wanted to have "intelligent design" taught in the school system. I congratulate the intelligence of the voters who realize that the real design of those school board members was to teach Christianity in science class. But this story gets even better.

In response to this election that crazy Pat Robertson had some words on his 700 Club TV show for the voters of Dover.

“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. 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.”

What a nut job. First off, they didn't vote God out of their city. They voted "intelligent design" out of their science classes. If they had "voted God out of their city" I would imagine that should have been a referendum to exclude all churches, religious books, religious practices, etc. from the city limits.

Second, doesn't Robertson sound like some sort of God hitman? "Now you've done it Dover, God is not on your side. Just wait for your problem!"

Third, all cities and towns have problems. Big problems, little ones and many in between. Whether a city has a flood, homeless people, sewer backups, crumbling roads, political fighting, business or government corruption, the list is endless. I imagine Dover can already lay claim to some type of problem as any other city can. So, if any new problem evolves I guess Pat Robertson will be watching ready to say "I told you so!"

What makes this vote even more interesting is that a group of parents challenged the school board on teaching "intelligent design" and the case is now in court hearing testimony from experts from both sides of the issue. This is the case that is being called the "New Scopes Monkey Trial." I imagine that the parents will probably just drop the case now that the voters have sided with them. Monkey wins!
