Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Robertson vs Ham

After Pat Robertson came out recently and said, in response to Marco Rubio’s rhetorical tap dancing on the subject of the age of the earth, that the Bible doesn’t require the earth to be only a few thousand years old, you knew Ken Ham was going to get all pissy about it. Sure enough.

Not only do we have to work hard to not let our kids be led astray by the anti-God teaching of the secularists, we have to work hard to not let them be led astray by compromising church leaders like Pat Robertson. This excerpt was posted on Youtube by a group that is a project of People For the American Way. Pat Robertson gives more fodder to the secularists. We don’t need enemies from without the church when we have such destructive teaching within the church.

This is a bit like someone arguing over the proper interpretation of a book on leprechauns, with one side declaring that they leave huge pots of gold at the end of rainbows and the other saying that they only leave a small saucepan full of gold. And then having one side declare the other one to be an enemy within for their obviously wrong interpretation. The fact that there are no leprechauns doesn’t register at all.

    The fact that there are no leprechauns doesn’t register at all.

    But then where did the pot of gold come from? You can’t explain that.

    Gold comes in, gold goes out…

    Maybe we should ask Glenn Beck. He seems to know a lot about gold.

    Usually, YECs and OECs are relatively good at shutting up about their differences. It’s always fun to see when they just can’t.

    If there are no leprech

    Or, as I initially wrote, if there are no leprechauns, who did I steal these Lucky Charms from?

    And who interrupted the server as my last post was being transmitted? Leprechauns, that’s who!

    C’mon Hammy, just say it:

    “Was Pat there???”

  • peterh

    If Ham finds facts destructive of his nuttery . . . . .

    Oh yes you do. When you stop trying to make your private morality public, and when you stop fleecing the gullible for vaporware, then we’ll talk.

    Mkay thx.*

    ** Ok, ok, I’m a little older than just a little older. Now if you’ll excuse me I have to book. The bowl is cashed and I have to pick up a dime.

    I’m embarrassed for you people! It is neither pots nor saucepans, leprechauns have crocks of gold. Crocks.

    (Coincidentally creationists also have crocks albeit full of something other than gold.)

    Inadvertently hit submit above prior to fixing clerical errors and finishing my conclusion.

    I laid out why a military attack is unacceptable. But a nuclear Iran with a U.S. Republican demonstrating its current zealotries and incompetencies is also unacceptable (that’s confusing above since I have a clerical error, sorry).

    Therefore we need to be far more aggressive than we are now with sanctions while we should also be very open to using carrots as well.

  • Michael Heath

    Sorry wrong thread (above comment post). Please carry on.

    Christian Cult vs Christian Cult?

    Shit. It’s always reruns on that channel. Where the hell is the remote? Has anyone seen the remote? Dammit. Now I have to get up and go mash the button on the set. When will I get some rest?
