Robertson's WeaponJanuary 19, 2006
Here is a good column about Pat Robertson's attempt to apologize for his comments about Ariel Sharon and save his business deal in Israel: MySA.com: Editorials. Here are a few highlights:
"If mouths were weapons, Pat Robertson would be the poster boy in the push for gun control."
"The man does not utter words; he fires them."
"Well, his mouth finally landed him in a mess of biblical proportions."
"The apology may not be enough to return him to the negotiating table. Woe unto any televangelist who goes too far."
If only Robertson had remembered the words of James he would have known how much trouble his mouth could cause him. Let’s try for a little less rhetorical violence and a lot more love.
