i just don’t get it. and i hate going public in expressing my ‘dislike’ for a person – especially if that person happens to profess belief in the same jesus christ. i refer to pat robertson as a very distant distant distant distant cousin in the larger christian body of christ but sometimes, he just drives me nuts. because i’m a christian pastor and involved with a denomination called, ‘evangelical covenant church,’ i honestly get more questions from neighbors and unchurched friends about robertson and jerry falwell than i do about jesus. that statement, in itself, says that something’s a little screwy.

ROBERTSON: She looked gorgeous last night, but she had a really serious facial deal. And it did a wonder —
WATTS: Sister needed help.
ROBERTSON: Sister got the help.
WATTS: Sister — she needed some help, yeah.
ROBERTSON: But she got it. She just looks great, and she’s so popular.
WATTS: But have you ever seen someone who got it too much, and so they come up to you, and they’re like, “Pat, how are you doing? It’s so good to see you.”
ROBERTSON: Yeah, they got the eyes like they’re Oriental, and, you know, it’s all pulled. So, make sure you do it right. But — it’s — that’s one way you can go, but it’ll cost you five or six thousand dollars probably. All right. What else?
So, when folks ask me why the other Quest pastors and I politely declined the invitation to be featured and aired on the 700 Club as their church of the week, this is one of the reasons… To read the article, click here. and seriously, did we actually get a compelling and authentic apology from rosie o’donnell for her ‘ching-chong’ comment…
‘ching-chong’ – have a good sabbath, eugene the oriental
