Has Robertson Gone off the 'Deep End' ?Topics: International News
Speaking to viewers of the 700 Club, evangelist Pat Robertson suggested that the U.S. assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to stop the Latin American country becoming a "launching pad" for extremism.
"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come to exercise that ability," Robertson said. "This is a dangerous enemy to our south controlling a huge pool of oil... We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."

The short answer to the question, "has Roberts gone off the deep end," is - a little further than that!"
Roberts should be soundly and vociferously condemned by all Christians of all denominations. How can Christians condemn Muslims for not speaking out against terrorism, if they fail to put Roberts in his place and condemn him for condoning and encouraging the assasination of a nation's leader, even a whacko communist, anti-American dictator like Chavez!
Roberts just made a terrible mistake, and a he's begining to make himself irrelevant in the Christian community. Christians MUST CONDEMN HIM for his comment, or we have no right to criticize the Muslims for not standing up against the Islamic agenda and Islamic terrorism.
