And Speaking of Warped Fundies ...

... (which we were a short while ago) here is your Pat Robertson, doing a bit of couples' counseling. The question: young woman who is "new to being a true Christian" wants to know how to deal with "my fiance of 4 years who has been with me through every step of my journey."

(alt. video link)

The short version of the answer from Robertson, if you can't bear to watch: your boyfriend is in league with Satan, so dump him, or you're doomed, too. We are in permanent holy war with all atheists -- there is no middle ground.

I'd like to pretend for a moment that Heaven is as they once told me, so that when this horrible little troll gets to the Pearly Gates, St. Peter can dick-punch him.

No real sympathy for the young woman (assuming she's real and this isn't just Robertson making up email questions for his own deviant satisfaction): what part of your own been with me every step of the way for four years do you not get? Why are you writing to this twisted little bundle of hate for advice on anything? Jesus wept.

Pat says that God sent Katrina to level New Orleans because the people were living sinful lives, so you can imagine what God will do if a Christian befriends a non-believer. There goes Pat's holy war and that's enough to piss off the pope. BTW Did you hear that the pope raised all the urinals at the vatican? Yeah, he wants to keep the cardinals on their toes. Sorry very old joke.

I have to admit that my own advice to the guy would be to dump her. No offense, but we ARE in a permanent rationality war with all dogmatics. There IS a middle ground, but they have no idea how to get there.
