Christianity, New and Improved! Assassinations A.O.K.

Oh yes, Pat Robertson, soul of Country Buffet Christianity (gorge on deep-fried scapegoat with rich and tangy vengeance sauce!) is publicly for assassination when money is possibly at stake. Here he is, in his Christian glory, calling for the pre-emptive assassination of Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela, before he can threaten the Venezuelan supply of oil
to the U.S.

You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war. And I don't think any oil shipments will stop. But this man is a terrific danger and the United ... This is in our sphere of influence, so we can't let this happen. We have the Monroe Doctrine, we have other doctrines that we have announced. And without question, this is a dangerous enemy to our south, controlling a huge pool of oil, that could hurt us very badly. We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.

Well, isn't that special! Jesus as an economic mercenary, a killer for money. And not in response to any action, before any action! When are we going to stop referring to these people as Christians? Because I don't believe it's Christian to murder someone because they have more beanies than you and you want them.
