The Associated Press is the supreme news service of our time. It also insists on labeling Pat Robertson as a "Christian broadcaster," as if the title somehow excuses the rantings of an obviously deranged man. (Hint to AP: How about "religious broadcaster" instead?)

On Thursday Robertson said he was sorry to hear that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had suffered a severe stroke. But ...
"God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program "The 700 Club." "You read the Bible and he says 'This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, 'No, this is mine.'"

He also said that in the Bible, the prophet Joel "makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who 'divide my land.'"

Sharon "was dividing God's land and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU (European Union), the United Nations, or the United States of America."
If God is angered by those who divide, then Pat Robertson is one marked mofo.
