Pat Robertson came out this week with another endorsement for legalizing pot.  He said it's a nonviolent crime, it costs too much money to fight, and the war has failed.  I agree!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwyc2ymKYUQ

   Well, good for him.  Funny though, the same thing could be said about homosexuality because homosexuality is a "nonviolent crime", it "costs too much money to fight" and "the war has failed."  But I doubt we'll see him reverse his position about that.

I'm a right wing atheist because I enjoy being hated by everyone.

Good... cuz then that means I'm right about everything twice a day Sticking out tongue

 

So Pat Robertson is practicing the "well, it's time to mellow out and kiss ass" tactic of zealous promotion. Is it not natural for anyone like him to do such?

Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

"deleted" or not, I'd like to read the full thing or whatever is left of it in post or PM, if you don't mind.

Speaking with 'inevitable regret' rarely helps anyone, if you get my drift.

It looks like Pat Robertson is loosening up a bit in the sexual realm, too.  He said that anything a married couple wants to do sexually is ok: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeCbRuzSZzw

 Well, isn't that

 Well, isn't that interesting. The Young Turk video in the OP is from Dec 2010. IOW Pat Robertson has been saying this for years. Funny how it is getting all this attention now. 

Religion Kills !!!

Pat Robertson approves

Pat Robertson approves ganja? Well then, he might soon change the liturgical music to something like that: 

 

Beings who deserve worship don't demand it. Beings who demand worship don't deserve it.

It's getting attention because Colorado and Washington state both have amendments to legalize Recreational Pot on the November ballot.
