Robertson - Love Thy Neighbor

Christian fundamentalist leader Pat Robertson often speaks out on political issues. It's good to do so. Christianity is supposed to stand against the culture we find ourselves in. However, one must wonder if what's said in the name of Christianity really reflects the will of God.

Recently, Pat Robertson was defending himself against charges that he had called for the assissination of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. Robertson responded, saying, "I didn't say 'assassination.' I said our Special Forces should 'take him out.'"

Thank you for clarifying that, Mr. Robertson. Brilliant.

Am I the only one who wonders if this really reflects what Jesus meant when He said, "love your neighbor as yourself?"
