Who Would Jesus Assasinate ?

No Christian should ever call for the assassination of a human being no matter what their stance. Rev. Roberts has turned the Christian Broadcasting Network into the Criminal Broadcasting Network. And the popular saying that appears on wristbands distributed by CBN, "WWJD" - that is "What Would Jesus Do" should now be "WWJA": "Who Would Jesus Assasinate." By his comments, Rev. Robertson is showing that the Christian right is neither Christian nor right..

So, I hate to do breaking news entries. But this one was screaming for one. No, literally, screaming.

I work across the street from the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN). Now, CBN broadcasts the 700 Club, where Pat Robertson made his infamous comments regarding Chavez.

Well, currently, or now it looks like it's wrapping up, there is a protest in front of CBN being led by the Hip-Hop Caucus and members of the faith-based community, including a rousing speech by Rev. Yearwood which I can hear from my building.

It appears to have gotten good press-turnout, and has stopped traffic pretty well. I did a quick search and found a link on IndyMedia

From the article:
"The comments made by Reverend Pat Robertson are shocking and appalling. No Christian should ever call for the assassination of a human being no matter what their stance. Rev. Roberts has turned the Christian Broadcasting Network into the Criminal Broadcasting Network. And the popular saying that appears on wristbands distributed by CBN, "WWJD" - that is "What Would Jesus Do" should now be "WWJA": "Who Would Jesus Assasinate." By his comments, Rev. Robertson is showing that the Christian right is neither Christian nor right and we're asking that he apologize now."

Rev. Yearwood is convening a coalition of clergy and laity concerned about the Christian Broadcasting Network and Robertson in particular, promoting of a political agenda propelled by fear not faith, under the guise of Christian ministry. At the vigil/press conference, religious leaders and members of the faith community will publically denounce the advocacy of murder and terrorism by one of the religious right-wing's most well-known and powerful leaders. Pat Robertson, founder and chairman of the Christian Broadcasting Network was the leader of the Christian Coalition, a group which bolstered the 2000 Presidential campaign of George Bush and has provided staunch support for his 2004 Presidential election and his administration's policies

To everyone who says the Christian Left is a dormant group that never does anything, and thus bears equal responsibility with the Christian Right and thus it is okay to refer to all Christians as the Right, I say, thhhhbbbbbbbbbbbb! (Real mature, I know)

Anyway, the point is, there is resistance out there. It just doesn't get on Fox News.
