To His Own Image
PatRobertson.com - Synopsis: The Jefferson Memorial pledge on the "altar of God (of) eternal enmity against every form of tyranny over the mind of man" challenges Americans today. Governments can cause tyranny, a welfare state can cause tyranny, and political correctness creates tyranny. Pat calls for freedom for believers to pursue their faith, freedom from undue government regulation and a restoration of Jeffersonian defense of God-given liberties.
Robertson's ballsy hypocrisy takes everything Jefferson ever held dear, makes them sins, then pins the REAL tyranny on Jefferson as the founder of it all:
Jefferson not only believed in freedom of religion, he believed in freedom FROM religion. He believed in the freedom of the mind, an idea that Robertson constantly and thoroughly removes from the discourse on "faith". Jefferson never believed in the miracles of the Bible. Robertson's speech declares himself to be :
a Jeffersonian Conservative, and as such, I share his hatred of any form of tyranny over the minds of men, be it Communism, be it Fascism, be it Socialism, be it the over-bearing liberal welfare state, or be it the stultifying political correctness that has reached out to stifle freedom of expression on countless college and university campuses across America.
When will people learn to tell the difference between a clown like Pat Robertson and a minister who has no political ambitions or biases? Oh well, there will always be two kinds of Elmers: Elmer Gantry and Elmer Fudd. Robertson is a Gantry for sure. He doesn't have a shotgun.
He doesn't need one.
Someone will use the shotgun for him.
Just a thought
