In what little is left that is positive about America, one of its best, most effective guarantors of freedom has been SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE, and this is one of the bulwarks of what freedom we have ever had in America, even today. Here we have someone who presents himself as an ultimate American Patriot and hero, and a man of God, someone who in the past has campaigned for the office of the President of the United States, telling us that (true) separation of church and state is folly and harmful. He's telling us that religion needs to be mixed with government in order to make society cohesive and protect it from falling into chaos. Is China chaotic? Was the USSR chaotic? Granted, totalitarian psuedo-communism is no way to live, but atheism doesn't have much to do with their order. They still succeeded in much, as China does today (however imperfectly). Does this asshole want today's Iran? Does he want women and children and groups of men hanging on blue nooses from construction cranes above crowds?
Watch the movie 'The Handmaiden's Tale' to get a taste of what America is headed for under the guidance of people like Pat Robertson.
He says that without a government characterized by religious institution interwoven therein, we will have no civility, no society. That is insane. Religion, as shown by Christ Himself, is something practiced from the heart, not from some bench or office someplace. One's relationship with God is intensely private. No government can hope to positively influence it. All it can ever do is empower those who seek to use religion to control the masses, as has always been done in America and its european mother countries before it.
The American People, the world's most easily indoctrinated and manipulated population, needs to WAKE THE FUCK UP!!!
THINK FOR YOURSELF!!! You don't need or want kooks like Pat Robertson poking around in your mind for the powermongers who keep him on television! Aren't you embarassed, America, to have idiots like this influencing your life right in front of the rest of humanity?
