Weasel Of The Week


"God is On Our Side"


Weasel of the Week:  Fundamentalists and other Religious Extremists
Religious Extremists 

The far-right religious folk - in their own words:

Pat Robertson

[on Gay Day at Disney World] "I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes and I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you, This is not a message of hate; this is a message of redemption. But a condition like this will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring about terrorist bombs; it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor."
"The 700 Club" June 6, 1998

Jerry Falwell

I do not believe the Republicans or the Democrats have the solution to America's moral and spiritual dilemma. Only a pervasive and national spiritual awakening can prevent us entering the post-Christian era as we go simultaneously into the 21st century. I believe America is in imminent peril. We are rotting from within.
"Rebuilding America's Walls," 7/6/97

Usama Bin Laden

All these crimes and sins committed by the Americans are a clear declaration of war on God, his messenger, and Muslims. And ulema have throughout Islamic history unanimously agreed that the jihad is an individual duty if the enemy destroys the Muslim countries.... On that basis, and in compliance with God's order, we issue the following fatwa to all Muslims: The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies -- civilians and military -- is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it, in order to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy mosque [Mecca] from their grip, and in order for their armies to move out of all the lands of Islam, defeated and unable to threaten any Muslim.
Jihad Against Jews and Crusaders, February 23, 1998


Well, will you lookie there!  Looks like we've got us our own home-grown Taliban.  Yes sir, Falwell and Robertson, the Dynamic Duo, hate America as much as Old Dirty Bastard, bin Laden, does.

Why?  Well, it seems that if you're a feminist, a liberal, a member of the ACLU, a homosexual--in short, anything other than a check-writing, mind-numbed supporter of their tunnel vision view of the world--YOU blew up the World Trade Center.  Or made God angry enough to let it be blown up.  Or something like that.  Call the FBI and turn yourself in, you Commie bastard.

This just in:  Even though he was sitting right next to Falwell, nodding his head and mumbling agreement while Fat Boy gave his vision of the world, Robertson now says that he doesn't agree with Jerry and, in fact, didn't understand what he was going for in the first place.  Yup, displaying the same courage he showed during the Korean war when he had his Congressman daddy get him out of combat, Reverend Robertson again left a friend to deal with the dirty work while he ran for the metaphorical bunker.  Very Christ-like of you, Rev.

Yup, when you peel back the cover which says Koran or Holy Bible, you find that religious fanatics all read from the same tome, the Book of Blame and Self-righteousness.  Whether it's Lynchburg or Kabul, the game's the same.  Screw 'em all, let God (or Allah) sort 'em out.
