Dear God

I was going to post part two of my meandering thoughts on why religion is really a very useless and often destructive entity, not only to nations but also to the human heart and soul. I could, but rather than make arguments that could be met with other arguments (though the opposing ones are easily beaten, email me and we’ll discuss) I opt to present the perfect example of a grown man whose belief in god is so silly and twisted that it causes him to make absurd and asinine statements such as those below. Add to the mix the nutjobs who fail to understand the irony of blowing up abortion clinics and the commander and chief who thinks he’s following Jesus’ example and the Christian goons start seeming as ugly and evil as the Muslim ones that we are all supposed to fear.

Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine punishment for "dividing God's land."

"God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program "The 700 Club." "You read the Bible and he says `This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, `No, this is mine.'"
