Pat Robertson is an idiot

BBC: (via Laura who brought this to my attention)

On Tuesday, Dover voters ousted the local school board, which had tried to introduce the concept as an alternative to the theory of evolution.

Pat Robertson told his TV show that the town had turned its back on God.

“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,” Mr Robertson said on The 700 Club.

I love the dissonance of these positions. “If there is a disaster”? Wouldn't God cause the disaster? Where has God been in any historical disaster? Maybe we should take God's failure to smite the population of Dover in the last two days as tacit approval of teaching evolution?

But I guess that's why I'm not an religious person. Or a loon.
