O! Say can you hear that choking shrieking Right?

The mellifluous stylings of Pat Robertson, no less.

"The noose has tightened around the necks of Christians to keep them from speaking out on certain moral issues. And it all was embodied in something called the Hate crimes bill that President Obama said was a major victory for America. I’m not sure if America was the beneficiary. [...] We have voted into office a group of people who are opposed to many of the fundamental Christian beliefs of our nation."

Yesterday on the Christian Broadcasting Network, televangelist Pat Robertson aired a segment slamming President Obama for signing the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act into law. Extending hate crimes protection to the gay and transgendered community, Robertson argued, was a targeted attack on homophobic Christians like himself.


eh. Some of those comments are funny - unless you suffer from a religious zealotry sociopathy or the related fundamentalist persecution disorder.

If the noose fits ...
