Foot in Mouth: Robertson suggests God smote Sharon

I don't usually care or comment on what Robertson says on his TV show. I am not even sure I understand why he says the things he says, or what sort of viewers he has that put up with his mouth.
(CNN) -- Television evangelist Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine retribution for the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, which Robertson opposed.
But, I thought I would throw in my 2 cents simply to contrast and clarify--he does NOT represent the opinions and perspectives of all Christians. He does NOT represent the opinions and perspectives of most conservatives. He does NOT represent or come close to sharing my views, perspectives, and probably a lot of aspects of my theological perspectives.

Yesterday I was listening to Medved, who had a great discussion on the repercussions of Sharon's having to step down. I am concerned for Israel, and their pending political turmoil. Sharon is my prayers and the nation of Israel is my prayers. I hope new strong leadership rises to fill the shoes left by Sharon--a incredibly tough challenge.
