Thanks for clearing that up, Pat

Dover, a suburb of Harrisburg, PA, recently voted out 8 school board members who had injected Intelligent Design into science curriculum. I guess voters felt that the Christian Creation Myth does not belong in a taxpayer-funded science program, much the same way the Mayan or Inuit Creation Myths don’t belong there. But wait! That’s not what Intelligent Design is, right? All it says is that the complexity of the universe indicates some sort of “intelligent” driving force! It’s non-demoninational, it doesn’t have to be Christian, it could be more like Star Wars! It doesn’t refute evolution, it strengthens it! (disclosure: that is pretty close to my personal belief). Well why then, if ID is not simply Christianity in a lab coat, do people like the Honorable Reverend Pat Robertson make statements like this:

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. And don’t wonder why he hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for his help because he might not be there.

So, if, for example, a hurricane strikes Dover, that is the Creator of All Things, Master of the Universe, expressing His displeasure at a local school board election. (if God cared, couldn’t He just manipulate the election? Or force people to vote His way? Or just about anything He wanted? Why would He wait to use some Godly influence?) And don’t expect any pleas for disaster relief help or donations from Pat’s minions, because you all deserve to die.
