Welcome to Roger’s Take on Religion
Some of the better know purveyors of religion are selling an inferior product. Followers should demand immediate refunds.
Consider televangelist Pat Robertson. Robertson was quick to give us a reason for the Las Vegas massacre, saying it was God’s punishment resulting from widespread “disrespect” for Donald Trump.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I’m trying to make sense of this …. Why is it happening?” Robertson asked on “The 700 Club.” You know, what I’d like to give you is the fact that we have disrespect for authority. There is profound disrespect of our President all across this nation. They say terrible things about him.”
Here’s My Take: Gun-rights activists are fond of saying “people kill, not guns.” Perverted purveyors of religion like Robertson go one step further, saying “God kills, not people or guns.”
Jesus once said “I tell you, on the day of judgment you will have to give an account for every careless word you utter” (Matt. 12: 36).
Those arrogant enough to credit God for human tragedies had best heed this warning.
