How Can a Loving God...

...have created Pat Robertson?!

From the AP:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson warned residents of a rural Pennsylvania town Thursday that disaster may strike there because they "voted God out of your city" by ousting school board members who favored teaching intelligent design.

All eight Dover, Pa., school board members up for re-election were defeated Tuesday after trying to introduce "intelligent design" _ the belief that the universe is so complex that it must have been created by a higher power _ as an alternative to the theory of evolution.

"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God. You just rejected him from your city," Robertson said on the Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club."

Eight families had sued the district, claiming the policy violates the constitutional separation of church and state. The federal trial concluded days before Tuesday's election, but no ruling has been issued.

Later Thursday, Robertson issued a statement saying he was simply trying to point out that "our spiritual actions have consequences."

I doubt it was God's agenda to put intelligent design in schools anyway.

I'm sure Robertson knows he's actually not authorized to say what exactly is in God's plans. I think the Big Man can speak for Himself on that.

And yes, our spiritual actions do have consquences. If you murder someone, that's bad.

If you vote some trustees out because they're violating the seperation between church and state, I wouldn't call that a spiritual action. Rather one based on the founding principals of the United States of America.
