Liberals Worse than Al Qaeda: Robertson


Progressive and moderate Christian groups have finally started to take a stand against the Evangelicals who seem to be running the show in the US:

"We can no longer stand by and watch people speak hatred, division, war and greed in the name of our faith," said Patrick Mrotek, founder of the new Christian Alliance for Progress. "We must reclaim our faith." - Yahoo/AFP

The groups are really pissed off about a few comments made in May by Capt. Fire and Brimstone himself, Pat Robertson. He was quoted on ABC's "This Week" as saying:
"Over 100 years, I think the gradual erosion of the consensus that's held our country together is probably more serious than a few bearded terrorists who fly into buildings,"
He went on to reinforce his belief that:

...an out-of-control liberal judiciary is the worst threat America has faced in 400 years - worse than Nazi Germany, Japan and the Civil War..."Yes, I really believe that," he said. "I think they are destroying the fabric that holds our nation together." - New York Daily News

It's about time moderate Christians stepped into the fray and demanded some media attention. Plus they have a sweet slogan:
Their mantra, in a building campaign against conservative Christians, a key constituency of President George W. Bush, is: "Since when was God pro-war, and pro-rich?"

Let me get this right, the Right goes absolutely bonkers because Senator Durbin compares Gitmo to the kind of punishment inflicted by the Nazis, and nobody oublically calls Pat Robertson out for his take on liberals?

Amazing!
