Pat Robertson Jihad Update


The Videos Tell a Different Story Pat!


Pat Robertson now says that he never suggested Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez should be killed, and that his comments were taken out of context:

"I didn't say 'assassination.' I said our special forces should 'take him out.' And 'take him out' can be a number of things, including kidnapping; there are a number of ways to take out a dictator from power besides killing him. I was misinterpreted by the AP [Associated Press], but that happens all the time," Robertson said on "The 700 Club" program. (Watch Video Robertson's Apology).

But his retraction falls short of more incriminating comments that he made earlier:

"If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think we really ought to go ahead and do it," said Robertson on Monday's program. "It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war." (Watch Video Robertson's Original Comments)

This writer refused to go the extent of vilifying Robertson like others have, but given his ineffectual apology I now find myself wanting for his excuses.

As you can see Pat the tapes tell us a different story. It's time to get with the program and come clean. Show us some of that character you like to preach. Do the right thing, fess up and stop making excuses.

And while you're at it look into that alzheimer's problem.

This is embarassing for Christians. I hope he does the right thing and apologizes.
