Virgina passes a resolution lauding Pat Robertson.

# Whereas in 1995 Robertson said, “Demons work behind the Hindu and other Oriential religions, as well as behind the teaching of mind control”;
# Whereas in 1998 Robertson said, “I want to state very clearly, ladies and gentlemen, there’s no such thing in the Constituton as, quote, separation of church and state. That term does not exist in the United States Constitution. It existed in the former Soviet Union’s constitution but not America”;
# Whereas in 1998 Robertson warned the city of Orlando not to fly rainbow flags from light poles, noting, “f a condition like this will bring about the destruction of your nation, if it’ll bring about terrorist bombs; [if] it’ll bring earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor, it isn’t necessarily something we ought to open our arms to. And 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.”;
# Whereas in 2001 Robertson responded to the Sept. 11 attacks by saying, “We have insulted God at the highest levels of our government. And, then we say, ‘Why does this happen?’ Well, why it’s happening is that God Almighty is lifting his protection from us”;

If this didn’t come from Rob Boston and AU, I’d swear it came from The Onion.

On a related note…

Kentucky has a resolution recognizing The Manhattan Declaration.

Uhhhhhh. That’s not the real resolution.  It’s AU’s version of how they think that the resolution should read.

Of course AU’s is a lot better!  Robertson really is a total f up.
