Pat Robertson has decided that he's lost faith in our system of government. Instead, he's turning to his faith to pray conservatives onto the Supreme Court. This is a reaction to the court striking down that Texas anti-sodomy law, of course. I must have missed the part in the Bible where it says that everything that's a sin also has to be against the law. That sure takes the pressure off the religion. Let the government's police force enforce the laws of your faith. Is it out of style yet to compare Robertson to a theocracy we've recently bombed? Probably showing my age.
We can't rely on morals and personal responsibility to govern our actions, can we? I mean, look at the example our president is setting. AWOL during his National Guard years, claims he's all for personal responsibility in the White House when he's on the campaign trail, and when he's caught in a lie he blameshifts with the best of them. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
I can't wait to see what happens if the economy remains sluggish for the rest of his term. "Oh - the Brittish told us a tax cut was going to solve all our problems. And the CIA didn't warn us enough times that it was ridiculous."
But, back to Robertson.
He apparently can't stand that there are people who think differently than he does, and act differently in the privacy of their own relationships. Of course he doesn't trust them to act morally because he can't accept a common moral ground. It's his ground, or no ground.
Pray all you want, Pat. But I'm thinking you'd better pray that the Democrats don't get their act together. Their futures are starting to look a little bit brighter. If you're interested, here's a link to a related CNN story. Warning, my picture is better.
