"The prefer to be called the Sunshine state".
2002-03-11 07:38:47 PM  
Pat Robertson is a penis.
2002-03-11 07:39:57 PM  
I can't count the number of times that I mis-read the word "flag" in this article...
2002-03-11 07:40:16 PM  
I wonder how many straight people have started wildfires...
2002-03-11 07:40:44 PM  
Maybe God didn't want to get the pretty rainbow flags wet.
2002-03-11 07:41:43 PM  
who gives a spicy fark? let'em be gay iffen they wanna be gay.

2002-03-11 07:46:10 PM  
Damn dirty gays, causing 9-11 and now wildfires. What will they come up with next? WWIII?
2002-03-11 07:46:32 PM  
Is this a real newspaper in florida?
2002-03-11 07:47:09 PM  
so how can explain the number of hurricanes hitting shore around the bible belt?
2002-03-11 07:47:52 PM  
I've never been to the Parliment House, I'm not gay, but I do live in Orlando. Pat who?
2002-03-11 07:48:14 PM  
Pat Robertson isn't nearly as scary as the psychotic Christain Fundamentalists that hang on his every word (like my late grandmother).
2002-03-11 07:48:45 PM

Yes, but Orlando isn't a real city, so it evens out.

Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!
2002-03-11 07:49:47 PM  
Couldn't the drought just be becuase of the weather?
What do flags have to do with the weather?

Pat Robertson and the rest of the televagilists are a farce. Like jerry fartwell. idiots all of them.

So the gay pride flags were flying all over the country last year? I seem to remember that it was the hottest, driest summer in a long time in many parts of the country.

I liked the last Q&A on the page better.
Scott: (summarized) Phone companies are robbing us blind by adding extra charges in the assumption we'll switch to wireless where they'll rob us blind again but under a different name...
Dear Scott: A spokesman for the phone company said your analysis was close enough to the truth that you will have to be killed.

I didn't think this kind of humor was allowed anymore. I'm glad to know it's still around.
2002-03-11 07:51:07 PM  
The wildfires where kinda cool.
It was snowing, granted it was ash and made you cough but still.
2002-03-11 07:52:52 PM  
Third one down is the best. Here it is.

Dear Mike: I would think (smart Maitland guy that you are) that you could have figured out the big picture on phone bills. The phone companies see the future as everybody having their own wireless line. These are better for the phone companies because people pay usage charges. The populace would never stand for usage charges on their wired local service. So they are adding enough costs to services they don't want to provide so people will think it's a better deal to buy services they make the most money on.

Didn't this moron predict hurricanes and earthquakes due to Disney's "Gay Day" at their theme park?
2002-03-11 07:57:57 PM  
Wow... I even know some gay people and they REFUSE to give me the list to all the upcoming atrocities... I can't believe it!
I s'pose your guess is as good as mine for what they're doing next.
2002-03-11 07:59:46 PM  
It's America's Wang!
2002-03-11 08:01:07 PM  
It is one heck of a coincidence though. ;-)
2002-03-11 08:01:39 PM  
What, Gays not useing lube and causing so much friction that fires start?
2002-03-11 08:05:54 PM  
RobbieFal Yes, and it's dripping gonn juice right onto Havana.
2002-03-11 08:07:09 PM  
Then why does San Franciso have such great weather?
2002-03-11 08:07:53 PM  
If Robertson is wrong, he is an asshole.

If Robertson is right, god is an asshole.
and i'll gladly see the rest of you in hell.
2002-03-11 08:08:06 PM  
Spike: have you ever been to San Francisco?

more specifically, the old Candlestick Park.

Horrid place to play, from what I've heard.

Gays dont start forest fires, Florida rednecks do. Only you can prevent forest fires. Join the Council for the Prevention of Florida redneck firestarters. Call now... operators are standing by. 1-800-759-0700
2002-03-11 08:24:15 PM  
When are all the 700 Club watchers going to collectively wake up and recognize Robertson's bullshiat for what it is?
2002-03-11 08:26:59 PM  
I wanna try that 1-800 number...
2002-03-11 08:28:34 PM  
A few years back, a whole bunch of Republicans almost got Pat Robertson nominated to run for president.

You think things are bad with religion being forced down our throats by Bush and Ashcroft?

We would have had a second American revolution.
2002-03-11 08:30:37 PM  
SF weather isn't the greatest. And Candlestick Park was always freezing. When I was a kid, they used to give out commemrative pins for fans that stayed for entire Giants extra innings games.
2002-03-11 08:32:17 PM  
This guy needs to be struck with some tragic (and funny) irony. A headline with the words Hilarity Ensues would do nicely
2002-03-11 08:32:39 PM  
God speaking to St. Peter:

"I don't care how hot it gets or how much land burns. I am so proud of the good christian values that Orlando is showing that I don't want one drop of rain touching those flags. Once they take them down you can start putting out any fires that started. Got that?"
2002-03-11 08:33:39 PM  
Florida death metal is so ten years ago. It's all about Gothenburg, Sweden nowadays. Get with the times man! :)
2002-03-11 08:34:11 PM  
Madgonad: RIGHT ON!
2002-03-11 08:35:24 PM  
Robertson is a cretin and fags are disgusting.
2002-03-11 08:37:38 PM  
Naw... It's all about Brazil (Raebelliun, Krisiun, Abominattion) and Finland (Thyrane, Funeris Nocturnum, Children of Bodom)...
2002-03-11 08:37:56 PM  
Let the rainbow flags SOOOOOOOOAAAAAR!!!
2002-03-11 08:41:16 PM  
They can try and try, but the Brazilians will never be able to beat old Sepultura. The new Krisium album sucks. And the best bands from Finland are Sinergy and Enter My Silence. Yet they still can't touch In Flames, Arch Enemy, Soilwork, etc. Gothenburg for sure. But hell. Any metal is good.
2002-03-11 08:43:15 PM  
Quasi off topic, but can relate to the story:

If anyone ever invents time-travel, please go back one year and kidnap Pat Robertson and tie him to a chair in a room on the 99th floor of WTC tower 2 on Sept 11 2001 at 8:45am- see if the "Veil of Protection" theory is true or not.
2002-03-11 08:44:19 PM  
Ok you got me... the new krisiun really does suck... Have you heard Centurian at all? After their latest (Libar Zar Zax) I'm ready to crown them the kings of krisiun style...
2002-03-11 08:44:20 PM  
Med_Student: So true.

But remember, gays caused AIDS.

2002-03-11 08:44:40 PM  
My take on this:
At the end of the great flood, God made a rainbow as a symbol of his promise not to flood the entire earth again. Perhaps God saw those flags, and thought that the Floridians were signaling him not to allow it to rain for a while!
Yeah, Right!
2002-03-11 08:45:48 PM  
I thought Robertson would have heard of the New Testament by now... but there's just not a lot of power to be gained when you tell people to love their neighbor.
2002-03-11 08:46:02 PM  
It's just a tiny cog in our wheel of world domination.
Y'all ain't seen nuttin' yet, Pat.
Or may I call you.......Patrice?
2002-03-11 08:46:13 PM  
Hmmm... Robertson said this before. Someone did a study a year or two ago (it was reprinted in the Harvard Gay and Lesbian Review) showing that liberal Sodom & Gemorrah's like New York, Miami, etc. are actually safer to live in natural disaster-wise than the bible belt. Maybe the xians need to shut the fark up with their shouting and listen to what their godling is trying to tell *them* (probably "stop embarassing me you nitwits").
2002-03-11 08:48:27 PM  
Well, if anyone would be an expert in the area of states shaped like a flacid penis, it would be Pat Robertson.
