Open Mouth, Lose Opportunity

Couldn't have happened to a stupider project. Hopefully this is just the beginning of the fallout from one of our national idiots. A religious amusement park just doesn't sound kosher.

Israel pulls plug on Pat Robertson deal - Mideast/N. Africa -
Under a tentative agreement, Robertson's group was to put up the funding, while Israel would provide land and infrastructure. Israeli officials believe the project will generate tens of millions of tourism dollars.

But the project now is in question in light of Robertson's comments, said Hartuv.

"We will not do business with him, only with other evangelicals who don't back these comments," Hartuv said. "We will do business with other evangelical leaders, friends of Israel, but not with him."

A day after Sharon's stroke on Jan. 4, Robertson suggested the prime minister was being punished for "dividing God's land," a reference to the August pullout from the Gaza Strip and four West Bank settlements.

"God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program "The 700 Club." "You read the Bible and he says 'This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, 'No, this is mine."'
Wackjob, nutjob, whatever. Such a forgiving tolerant man don't you think?
