Pat Robertson to the Citizens of Dover

USA Today: "In Dover, Pa., voters swept out eight of nine school board members who last year required a one-minute classroom statement supporting the competing theory of 'intelligent design' and casting doubt on evolution."

Pat Robertson's response: "I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover. If there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city. And don't wonder why He hasn't helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask for His help because he might not be there." (Watch the video: Broadband | Dial-up)

This is embarrassingly shallow theology and communication on so many levels. Feel free to point out the problems in the comments section below.
