This doesn't sound very nice

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson called on Monday for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, calling him a "terrific danger" to the United States.

Even if his suggestion would be a good idea, it is idiotic to make a public statement calling for the assassination of a foreign leader. However, more important than that is the fact that this goof (Robertson) is considered by some to be a Christian leader. It just doesn't sound like a very Christ-like thing to do to call for someone's murder. I would expect a religious leader to call for others to unite in prayer to change the hearts and minds of those we disagree with on issues. We rightly believe we have the moral high ground compared to the teachings of Islam which often leads to violence. We forfeit that moral high ground if we fail to repudiate such stupid comments. Pat Robertson needs to stay out of foreign affairs.
