And we listen to Pat . . . why?


Rutherford County Mayor Ernest Burgess and others scoffed at comments by nationally known televangelist Pat Robertson on his 700 Club program Thursday that Muslims could bribe local officials to expand their influence.

“It’s entirely possible,” Robertson said during the broadcast following a report from his show about the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro’s plans to build a 52,960-square-foot structure on Veals Road off Bradyville Pike southeast of the city.

The best quote in the article?

Before long, you’ll have girls in schools with head dresses on, he said.

Uh . . . Pat . . . I know that YOUR schools only have girls with blonde pigtails, but the rest of us already have girls in schools with head dresses on.

What is amazing to me about this whole conversation is the lack of concern and/or desire to evangelize the supposed infidels. The evangelicals I grew up with wanted to connect with non-Christians so as to lead them to Jesus. These days it seems more popular to build a gated Christianity along with our gated communities so as to keep the evil heathen apart from us.
