Every time Rev. Pat Robertson is in the news, the jokes practically write themselves. This time voting out the incumbent board of education after residents had enough of the intelligent design stuff being taught as science:for
“I’d like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God. You just rejected him from your city,” Robertson said on the Christian Broadcasting Network’s “700 Club.”
[…]”God is tolerant and loving, but we can’t keep sticking our finger in his eye forever,” Robertson said. “If they have future problems in Dover, I recommend they call on Charles Darwin. Maybe he can help them.”
Haw haw, good one Pat… that’s almost as clever as that time you poked your finger in God’s eye for that whole “thou shalt not kill” stuff — calling for the assassination of Venezuela president Hugo Chavez.
Update: There’s more to why the residents of Dover (York County) kicked out the incumbents. Apparently there was a whole lotta don’t-question-mah-authoritah going on along with I-don’t-recall-itis according to this op-ed by a resident:
Mr. Buckingham started this whole mess. He refused to tell the public where the book “Of Pandas and People” came from. Knowing all along it was his doing. […] Tapes of meetings were destroyed. Since when do we destroy tapes of public school board meetings?
