    No, you didn't misread that.

    Televangelist Pat Robertson: Alabama abortion law 'has gone too far,' is 'ill-considered'

    Now, it should be noted that Robertson, being a political animal first, last, and always, based his objection solely on the fact that he's predicting it'll lose in SCOTUS... but still, when the guy who goes on TV to make a show of praying for the death (natural or otherwise) of his political enemies says you've gone too far... isn't it time to do a little soul searching?

    Thoughts?

    Why do these people assume anyone will listen to them? Oh.. because there are those foolish enough to do so because they either have no minds of their own or throw away all common sense to back a like minded celebrity. These are of the world of man. They don't count in the Kingdom.

    Considering that Robertson, like most other televangelists, draws his livelihood from fleecing the flock, the fact that he certainly doesn't appear to be financially hurting would indicate that people are indeed listening.

    The Alabama case is a loser if it makes it to the Supreme Court, he is really just stating the obvious. I think the legislature is just scoring points with it's largely evangelical base. It catches some headlines but doomed to die in Federal court. I understand they want a test case, Alabama is the wrongest one among the 11 states passing antiabortion laws.

    "They want to challenge Roe v. Wade, but my humble view is that this is not the case that we want to bring to the Supreme Court because I think this will lose," he added.

    Robertson cited the law's lack of exemptions for rape or incest and its punishment up to 99 years in prison for performing an abortion in the state as extreme.
    I agree.

    Of course. Theirs is the church of the political mind rather than the governance of God..

    Considering Robertson's failed 1988 presidential bid, he would seem to prefer the governance of himself.

    Extremist abortion legislation is being passed by both the right and the left. Alabama is the mirror image of New York. One, extreme in allowing complete unfettered abortion to the point of decriminalizing the killing of a fetus by a third party without the mother's consent and allowing abortion after viability up to the second before birth for reasons involving the health but not necessarily the life of the mother. The other, extreme in completely ignoring already settled federal law about a woman's right to an abortion.

    Not so much... Robertson still proposes servitude... just to him instead of to God.

    Seems a stopped clock -- even one that stopped in 1692 -- can be occasionally right.
