My best advice for Pat Robertson...

My best advice for Pat Robertson is:
It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt. (quote attributed to various authors)
"Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history."                 –Pat Robertson

Now, let me get this straight, Pat.  The fact that non-Christians and non-believers demand that we uphold the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution that prevents evangelical Christians from receiving special treatment, those evangelicals are suffering more than anything suffered by any minority in history.

Has he never read a history book? Does he not know that Christians still make up about 70% of the U.S. population?  How could they possibly be considered a minority?  And how could they be victims of such widespread discrimination when Christians are in the majority even among liberals, the media, homosexuals and Congress? How can they say they are victims of bigotry when the Republicans have been pandering to evangelicals and the Religious Right for years?

I must have missed hearing about the terrible abuse, discrimination and bigotry Pat is suffering. If it is more terrible than anything suffered in history I must assume that:

Liberals ---just like the Nazis did to Jews (1933-45) ---are taking evangelical Christians from their homes, confiscating their belongings, putting them in concentration camps, starving them, and exterminating them by the millions.  I'm shocked because I haven't heard anything about this.  But then, I guess the liberal media is keeping it out of the news.

Homosexuals ---just like the Inquisition did to Jews (c. 1100-1794) ---are putting evangelical Christians on the rack and torturing them until they agree to become gay.

Congress ---just like slave holders (before the U.S. Civil War) ---is keeping evangelical Christians in captive servitude, beating them, raping their women, denying them an education and the right to vote, and selling their spouses and children to other members of Congress.  

Liberals ---just like the Libyan government (ongoing) ---are bombing its evangelical citizens, destroying their homes, killing thousands of people who don't support them, denying fair trials, and arresting them without formal charges.

Congress ---just like the Communist Chinese (1923-87) ---is responsible for 100,000,000+ deaths of evangelical Christians.

Until  one of those things actually happens, treatment of evangelical Christians is now and never will be more terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history.

Pat recently supported the legalization of marijuana.  Maybe he's been smoking too much weed.
