CHRISTIAN TERRORISM


...A few weeks ago, the leading Muslim cleric in Britain was refused a visa to the U.S. The man is a scholar who is adamantly anti-violence. However, in the eyes of millions of Americans, they are terrorists because they are Muslim. Last week, Pat Robertson called for the assassination of President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. Robertson is a Christian leader in the U.S. with millions of followers and a widely-watched TV show called "The 700 Club." Millions of misguided Americans look to him for moral and spiritual leadership. When Chavez was told of Robertsonís statement, he said he never heard of the preacher. I assume The 700 Club is not one of Venezuelaís top TV shows. Chavez called Robertsonís statement an act of terrorism.

CHRISTIAN TERRORISM

Malcom Lagauche

Many in the Bush administration would like to see Chavez disappear


August 30, 2005

Early in 2001, months before the 9-11 incidents, the group of which I am president, the Atheist Coalition of San Diego, invited two Muslims to speak about the perception of Islam by the U.S. public

One, a professor at the University of California San Diego, compiled statistics showing bias against Muslims. He tracked a Houston daily newspaper for one month and used the key words "Muslim," "terrorist," "Islamic" and "Christian." At the end of the month, the data came back showing 327 entries with either "Muslim" or "Islamic" with the word "terrorist," yet not one entry with "Christian terrorist." And, this was months before 9-11.

There have been acts of Christian terrorism in the U.S. that have made headlines, such as the bombing of abortion clinics or the murders of doctors. However, these actions have produced names other than "terrorists," such as "anti-abortion activists," "fundamental Christian activists," etc. They are activists, yet the Muslims are terrorists.

In the past few years, we have seen Muslims not being granted visas to the U.S. for no apparent reason. The singer formerly known as Cat Stevens was sent back to Britain last year when the plane he was on landed in the U.S. He was not given a reason for his non-entry. A few weeks ago, the leading Muslim cleric in Britain was refused a visa to the U.S. The man is a scholar who is adamantly anti-violence. However, in the eyes of millions of Americans, they are terrorists because they are Muslim.

Last week, Pat Robertson called for the assassination of President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. Robertson is a Christian leader in the U.S. with millions of followers and a widely-watched TV show called "The 700 Club." Millions of misguided Americans look to him for moral and spiritual leadership.

When Chavez was told of Robertsonís statement, he said he never heard of the preacher. I assume The 700 Club is not one of Venezuelaís top TV shows.

Chavez called Robertsonís statement an act of terrorism. He then added, "What would happen here in Venezuela if someone gets on television asking my government to assassinate the president of the U.S.?"

The U.S. government has not addressed this issue at all. They are mute. However, if the scenario was reversed, such as Chavez stated, there would be a call for the immediate extradition of the person advocating the killing of Bush. If Venezuela did not comply, the bombs would soon fall on Caracas. This attitude by the U.S. is double-standard at its worst.

Behind the scenes, few people realize that Robertson has hosted Venezuelan opposition figures on The 700 Club. Shortly before Robetsonís call for Chavezí demise, Maria Corina Machado told Robertsonís audience that there was no freedom of expression in Venezuela and its prisons are full of political prisoners. This was in contradiction of recent reports by human rights groups that have stated that freedom of the press is flourishing in Venezuela and that there is not one political prisoner in the country. However, the sheeple who watch Robertsonís sham of a program donít care about facts. If someone appears who says what they want to hear, thatís good enough.

Machado is a frequent guest in Washington of anti-Chavez lawmakers. To them, She is the darling of the Venezuelan opposition. She is held in reverence by both the U.S. government and the Christian right-wing wackos. Itís almost like they are a well-oiled functioning unit. The lack of a response from Washington about Robertsonís remarks indicates this collusion.

Chavez, however, is not one to sit back and let things happen with no input. In an un-reported story in the U.S., but heavily covered in much of the worldís press, Chavez has suspended permits for foreign missionaries and preachers. Finally, someone had the nerve to stop the Christian fanatics. This will draw the ire of many U.S. Christians, but it is the same as the U.S. curtailing the movement of Muslims in the U.S. At least Chavez has a good reason for the halting of missionaries and preachers visiting Venezuela: a top U.S. Christian leader has called for his death.

Chavez will not let the subject end here. According to the New York Times of August 29, 2005:

President Hugo Chavez said Sunday that his government would take legal action against Pat Robertson and potentially seek his extradition after the American evangelist called for Washington to assassinate the South American leader.

"I announce that my government is going to take legal action in the United States," Mr. Chavez said in a televised speech. "To call for the assassination of a head of state is an act of terrorism."

He said Venezuela could seek Mr. Robertsonís extradition under international treaties and take its claim to the United Nations if the Bush administration did not act.


Itís about time someone took Robertson to task. He has called the prophet Mohamed "a terrorist." He has blamed deadly hurricanes on homosexuals. He has called Hindus stupid for believing in their faith. He has predicted the end of the world. He mumbles gibberish on his TV show (called "talking in tongues") while he states that various people are now cured of fatal diseases, such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Donít forget that shortly after he tells of the cures of people (not by name, but by state: "Someone who has cancer in Illinois is now cured"), he asks for money to help him continue Godís work. And, the money comes in droves.

Hugo Chavez is precise in his assessment of Robertson and he is definitely not out-of-hand in calling for his extradition. It would be nice to see the worldís first international trial of a Christian terrorist. Maybe others of his same ilk would back off and not try to con the millions of gullible and paranoid people who take their words as law.
