Subject: Pat Robertson's "The Rising Storm" crusade
Date: 9 May 90 07:03:58 GMT
Pat Robertson is having a telethon on his TV network, called "The
Rising Storm." He's complaining about the usual "enemies": liberals,
ACLU, PAW, Atheists, NOW, school boards that won't let public school
teachers indoctrinate their charges about the Bible, abortion, the
On top of all this, he has a new startling revelation. It seems that
if the Atheists get their way (whatever that means), then the U S of A
will turn Hindu!! That's right, unless evangelical Christianity wins,
"demonic Hinduism will take over in the next 10 years" since you "have
to believe in something."
This is amazing news to Atheists, who do perfectly well without
Jewish, Christian, Moslem, Hindu, Buddhist, Shinto^, Taoist, Pagan,
New Age, or any other religious mumbo-jumbo.
As you may remember, Pat Robertson was the coward who used his daddy's
influence to get out of the Korean war. He lied about that, then
tried to sue Pete McCloskey for libel when McCloskey told the truth
(the suit was dismissed with prejudice). Pat didn't shoot any bullets
at North Koreans, but this "moral leader" did shoot a different kind
of bullet... he knocked up his girlfriend. She was several months
pregnant when they got married. Pat lied about that too.
This is also a man who wants very much to be President of the US, and
who ran a serious campaign in 1988.
