Hypocritical Terrorist?

August 23, 2005

Venezuela‘s Vice President Jose Vicente Rangel had a very interesting response to Robertson’s idiotic comments. http://www.breitbart.com/news/2005/08/23/D8C5N2SO0.html He stated:

“"The ball is in the U.S. court, after this criminal statement by a citizen of that country. …It's huge hypocrisy to maintain this discourse against terrorism and at the same time, in the heart of that country, there are entirely terrorist statements like those."

Hypocrisy and terrorism are not usually terms one would expect to hear in response to an evangelist. Sadly, I don’t think I can argue with Rangel on this on. Robertson’s rhetoric is clearly inappropriate and un-Christ-like. And it does seem to be hypocritical and even quite similar to the violent rhetoric of terrorists. Robertson seems to take the “club” in his show’s name a little too literally.
