Dave!In what can only be described as "a blissful turn of events," the amount of hate-mail I've been receiving from this blog has dropped to near-zero. With the exception of the occasional nut-bag who leaves a nasty comment, I haven't seen a good piece of deranged email in months!

Until this morning, that is.

It all seems to begin with the new Aaron Sorkin television show Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. In the premiere episode, Matthew Perry's character rants about Pat Robertson being a bigot and goes on to compare his "700 Club" show to a Klan rally. This, needless to say, upset a lot of people. And one of these "people" decided to go on a Google crusade, and consequently stumbled across Blogography because of a freaky combination of words found in my archives.

Now, as anybody who has read this blog for a while knows, I despise Pat Robertson. I loathe how he spreads hatred, mis-information, and violence across the globe all in the name of his freaky interpretation of Biblical verse and his personal brand of Christianity. In fact, I think that if Pat Robertson were to be judged by his actions, he is one of the least "Christian" people I have ever seen. He's not a religious leader at all... he's a douchebag with an audience that has no problem calling for the assassination of foreign leaders, condemning victims of natural disasters, and persecuting anybody who thinks differently than he does. But this is all okay, because God tells him he's right...

Are you insane?

Apparently people like me who disagree with this dumbass are (naturally) going to hell, and this guy had a burning desire to write and tell me that. It was a fascinating discourse which says I could be forgiven for THIS... but not THIS or THIS. The good news, however, is that there's still hope for me if I can turn to The Bible and find my way to Pat Robertson's particular flavor of crazy.

Which is kind of funny, because I've read through The Bible a number of times and distinctly remember it saying how you should run away from hateful idiots like Pat Robertson.

But whatever. I actually appreciate people who send email like this because it almost makes me look sane by comparison.

   

Anyway... I took the trouble to draw a DaveToon for yesterday's entry, but forgot to post it...

Dave Madonna

I don't think that the "Material Boy" look is very flattering for Lil' Dave. Maybe because he hasn't got the breasts to fill out that bra?

I probably should have bypassed Madonna's "Lucky Star / Like a Virgin" eras and went for the "Erotica / Vogue" years.

    Ha, man that toon is great. Is it bad if I’m a little aroused?

    Dave, the really sad thing is that these people will not change the way they think, no matter what. In their eyes, you’re the one who’s insane.

  2. ChillyWilly says:

    Your despisement for Pat Robertson is in line with my despisement.

    As curious as I am to see this email rant you received, I would rather pass than give this religious kook the pleasure of having his “Accept Jesus” philosophy plastered on a web site for others to read.

    Plus, any defense of Pat Robertson should be avoided at all costs.

    And as I mentoned in a previous comment, I liked the season opener of Studio 60, klan comarison comment and all.

  3. RW says:

    As a Christian, I’ve run out of words for this guy. I don’t have a funny quip. I can’t turn it around. I wish preachers would tend to souls and let the votes take care of themselves.

    Don’t know what to tell you Dave.

  4. Hilly says:

    Zealots are scary people, for sure. Uhmmm, I am a Christian, and not the hypocritical bible-thumping kind who thinks that God wants us to be serious and unhappy all of the time and even *I* despise Pat Robertson. Heck, I drive by the TBN almost every day and roll my eyes ;).

    I love Studio 60…why do certain people have to take things way too seriously? Sheesh!

  5. Mooselet says:

    Pat Robinson is no different than the nut jobs that lead Al-Qaeda and other fundamentalists organizations that the US is currently at war with. Someone please drop a bomb on Pat, please!!!

    I think if Li’l Dave lost his five o’clock shadow, he’d fit the image much better. Right now he looks like someone you’d find in a bad drag show…

  6. Mrs RW says:

    I’m glad there’s a Pat Robertson because we can use his name like an adjective to describe all the small-minded, despicable, bigoted people-haters who profess God’s love but actually hate anyone not as bigoted as they are. I take comfort in the hope that Pat Robertson’s eternity will be spent surrounded by the very people he preaches against. Wouldn’t that make a great toon? Pat surrounded by the rainbow coalition?

  7. Kyle I says:

    You know, the funny thing is I have NEVER met anyone that thinks highly of these whack jobs. Why do people that represent a very small segment of our society actually end up getting air time? Who wrote that memo? Can we like, fire that guy or something?

  8. apricoco says:

    Pat Robertson is a horrible human being who constantly proves that he is NOT a real Christian. His message of hate and bigotry is against everything that Christianity is about.

    On another note, I think that you should have gone for a look that Madonna adopted later, (I can’t remember the name of the song) when she was in that video with the cornrows and the pleather outfit.. Now, that would have been KICK ASS!

  9. karla says:

    weird. I got another blog troll hit yesterday as well, after a blissful period of quiet that lasted over a month.

    Blog trolls suck. Pat Robertson sucks.

    Madonna rules.

    A festival called “Fantasia” is going on every October in Provincetown. It’s a week festival for men who like to dress up as women. (Do not confused with drag queens.) They come there with their wives or girlfriends. It’s funny to watch them walking street with high heels. It gets funnier when they are drunk.Of course they love to wear wigs, make up and women’s outfit but I’ve never seen any pretty ones yet.

  11. Laurence says:

    I’ll simplify the debate with ONE question : PAT WHO ?

    I suppose he’s very conservative and like all very catholic conservative, I think that his conservatism brought him controversies.
    But it’s a never-ending debat.
    The extremism is very dangerous because it rejoin the weak minds.
    And I never understand people who take time for writing insults. The life is so complicated. I think that we shouldn’t make life more difficult in writing insults…

    In any case, I laught yesterday because I saw your scales of values. These scales of values concern me because I elaborated questionnaires with smileys and the fact of remplace a pictue with a real face is a great idea.

    And Lil Dave with “like a virgin” look is great…

  12. ms. sizzle says:

    i love that you said douchebag. :)

  13. Mocha says:

    Several things about this post make me love you in an inappropriate manner (no, Kennimus won’t be jealous) :

    1. Anytime a person with two brains cells rubbing together strings together a sentence about the idiocy of Pat Robertson.

    2. Girl Toy. ’nuff said.

    3. Douchebag. ’nuff said.

  14. yellojkt says:

    I used to watch Pat Robertson back in the 1970s on his Virginia Beach UHF station when the 700 Club was just filler between monster movies. He was a nut job way back then.

    He does have a fanbase. My wife’s friend’s dad canceled cable and got a dish because the cable company dropped the Family Channel.

  15. Belinda says:

    Well, you know my feelings about ol’ Pat. Husband and I (devout Christians AND–gasp–Baptists, even, to boot) STILL frequently pull up that “pain” post where PR is the ultimate “crazy” and BO’R is the ultimate “dick” and DC is the epitome of “evil,” and just laugh ourselves sick. SICK, I tell you. And it would probably shock your emailer to know that I’m the one who pushed you to creat the first “monkey pain chart” with my pitiful nagging, and I have not yet been struck by lightning DURING a church service.

    I’m sure it’s just a matter of time, though. Really.
