“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,” Robertson said on his daily television show, “The 700 Club.”
“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,” he said.
What’s scary is this clown has millions of followers and powerful members of a certain political party (rhymes with repugnican) are afraid to offend him.
PZ Myers @ Pharyngula sums up Robertson’s version of Christianity:
I like it. The message is clear, it’s not hard to figure it out…Christianity is like an extortion racket, see, and if you don’t cough up, well, Lew here might have a little accident with your car, or your house, or your little girl. And then Mr Big wouldn’t be able to do nothin’ for you. He doesn’t mean nothing by it, he likes you, see, but if you don’t show him a little respect, you can’t expect him to trouble himself with your worries, OK? Me and Vinnie’ll be by tomorrow, and you will have that little donation ready.
