According to the bible, Pat Robertson must now die.
If you're online at all, you may very well know the name Pat Robertson. If you're an American or Canadian, you more than likely do. But to be on the safe side, I'll share a little bit about who and what he is: He's an idiot.
But, more than just an idiot, he's an idiot who also happens to be another one of these so-called televangelists. Now, many people are already fully aware that televangelists are big, fat, con artists who prey on the loneliness of spinsters, the home-bound and the bed-ridden. But more than just another charlatan, Pat Robertson excels at making stupid comments. It's his forte. Sometimes, I watch videos of him on YouTube just for the awkward comedy.
Well, recently, a piece of information from AlterNet.org came past me on Facebook, wherein, Mr. Robertson admits to having blown a “prophetic vision” from God®. It's really funny to watch him squirm and find a good BS line to cover himself. Fun fun fun. His obvious discomfort and stammering is nearly as fun as watching him get lambasted for being a bigot or trying to explain what he means when he tells a viewer to beat his wife and move to Saudi Arabia.
But just as Pat Robertson likes to beat others over the head with his Big Book of Silly, there are rules about preachers too. Oh yes there are. Just as many fundy Christians try to say the book should be taken literally where it says homosexuals should die, those same fundy bible-thumpers need to acknowledge what the bible also says about false prophets. He's lucky that nobody in America takes the bible literally serious anymore. (Hold on, wait a minute. There's always WBC and lone-wolf wackos.)
Here's what the bible (KJV) says about false prophets. It's the same list of rules which also claim fundy “support” for the “case” against gay people and/or non-believers needing to be killed. I highly recommend more fundies actually read their own book. But they likely can't since they're some of the dumbest among us. Anyway, enjoy a bit of verse from the Good(?) Book. Grab your own bibles and follow along:
Deu 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
Deu 18:21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
Deu 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
Now, Pat Robertson has nothing to fear from me. He's a source of entertainment to me and nothing more. But I'm also beginning to even hear other Christians on social networks expressing upset with the man. And we all know the fundy community of the world can easily be a dangerous bunch. Frankly, I hope the old guy keeps himself at home or surrounded by bodyguards. Let's all agree that the Big Book o' Stupid need not be considered the “Wyrd of GAWD” any longer, because it isn't. Never has been.
