One of the prominent religious leaders for the television Christian is Pat Robertson, the one who has called for the deaths of American judges and world leaders. Let’s just say that he and I disagree on so many things. Let’s leave it at that.

The blogedian, Jason Rohrblogger, has posted a funny and disturbing list of the Top 10 Pat Robertson Quotes. Here are two that send tingles up my spine:

"Lord, give us righteous judges who will not try to legislate and dominate this society. Take control, Lord! We ask for additional vacancies on the court."

“The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."

Really? He prays that God will kill some judges and open up positions on the Supreme Court? Are we allowed to pray for the death of those we disagree with? Do women who want equal rights really kill their children, become lesbians and get into the voodoo?

Amazingly, Christians from all over consider this guy a preeminent authority on Christianity. That’s right. People really believe this stuff. I’m always leery of the person who thinks they know the mind and will of God.

Am I the only Christian out there that thinks this guy is a detriment to our faith? He makes us look like a bunch of kooks. Why don't more Christians denounce this guy? Why do so many follow him? How can they possibly read The Bible and agree with the guy?

He's a wacko to the inth degree. He's a poor spokesperson for what Christianity should represent. He's scary and dangerous.
