A Fatwa for killing issued by a Reverend named Pat Robertson
Editorial, Chicago Tribune Aug.24, 2005
In an appearance on CBS' back in May, Pat Robertson expressed the view that the threat from liberal judges is more serious than Islamist terrorism:
""It depends on how you look at culture. If you look over the course of a hundred 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. I think we're going to control al Qaeda. I think we're going to get Osama bin Laden. We won in Afghanistan. We won in Iraq, and we can contain that. But if there's an erosion at home, you know, Thomas Jefferson warned about a tyranny of an oligarchy and if we surrender our democracy to the tyranny of an oligarchy, we've made a terrible mistake."
Whew. His image in the CBS report (see below) looks scary; literally frothing at the mouth. One would think that he ought to be in a padded cell.
