No comment.

Right-wing fundamentalist Christian evangelist Pat Robertson on today's 700 Club, talking about Tuesday's vote in Dover, Pennsylvania to throw out the school board majority that had put 'intelligent design' into the local school curriculum:

"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."

Obviously Pat doesn't quite understand the concept that the folks in Dover are quite comfortable with how much influence God actually has (read: none) on disasters - either in creating them, or dealing with their aftermath.

Colbert made a point last night on the Report: this is a battle between the two sides and the winner gets to breed, which is of course a Darwinian outcome, either way.
