Robertson... never mind.

Are the rules about threatening the members of the Supreme Court as tight as they are about threatening the U.S. president? If so, with Pat Robertson calling for the assasination of members of the U.S. Supreme Court, why he still walking around free? Or is it now generally accepted by the Republican majority in the U.S. government that god is mythical?

[Edit: I got my fundies mixed up, was originally Jerry Falwell.]

[Double edit: Dang it, I can't find that one article, I guess I've gotta withdraw the accusation. He does seem to be simply calling for a retirement.]

Dan, this one's really sloppy. Falwell's got nothing to do with it, and nobody is specifying death as the preferred means of getting the justices out.

There are plenty of reasons to regard Falwell and Robertson with pure contempt, enough that making shit up is redundant.

I need to dig a little deeper to find the one article I read where he was quoted as elaborating on the ways that god could use the mentioned the cancer and heart condition.

Yep, and here's the CBN release and Dutch Sheets on CBN saying the same thing.
