Because I STILL Said So

"When religious leaders such as Pat Robertson attempt to explain the earthquake disaster in Haiti as part of a pact with Satan, he insults all of Christianity. The self-importance he spews to attempt to explain natural disasters in the framework of God’s will is horrifying."

  1. There is nothing wrong with stating your opinion strongly. Thank God for freedom of speech. I read through your statement and the comments and I can see all sides, but still hold firmly to your right to express yourself in your own forum. There's always a problem when people speak "under the banner of God." That's why I belong to no organized religion. When people start speaking for God or even speaking for me, there's a problem. But we always have a choice where we align ourselves.

    Some people feel they need to take a strong stand AGAINST something - the "just say No" mentality. In child development studies, we learned that negative sanctioning works most effectively - for gaining control of a desired behavior. We make a huge assumption when we say, "but we're all adults here."

    Pat Robertson said a stupid thing. It's like saying AIDS babies deserve their affliction because God's wrath produced the HIV virus.


Thank you for joining the conversation! Your input is always valued.
