Thou Shalt Not...

... say stupid things on the air.

has spoken something on the air that probably ought not be thought, much less uttered before the masses.
"If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it," Robertson told viewers on his "The 700 Club" show Monday. "It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war."
The whole commandment thing about not killing and Jesus' words in about not even thinking hatred in your heart against another - throw that stuff out. I know we can have the argument about murder versus war and assassinations being politically facilitated and therefore outside the grasp of these biblical charges. But now, having Christian leaders call for someone else to be killed for the betterment of society or to save $Xbillion - that's nuts.

The whole love-your-neighbor-as-yourself, they'll-know-us-by-our-love, love-your-enemies thing gets tossed out the door on an international scale, and Christians are the first to throw the possibility away. That's the really shameful part. To have nations think on such is one thing - but this is wrong on too many levels, and dishonors God on too many levels, too. Luckily, being a Christian news show, no one was watching besides other media outlets needing a story.

while I completely agree with the statement, I do think we would be better served if Pat would just shut up

i just still wonder what "love your neighbor" could look like on a national and international scale. never get the chance, most likely.
