Danny Glover Is An Idiot

While it is fashionable (and correct) to slam Pat Robertson for his idiotic comment that the Haitian earthquake was because of a rumored pact made with the Devil hundreds of years ago, why aren't more people mocking this moronic actor for claiming that global warming was responsible?

What's next, Sheryl Crow insisting that it would have been a less powerful quake if Haitians had used less toilet paper?

Maybe he's just getting too old for this sh!t?

I'll tell you the God's honest truth. If you say a negative word about Danny Glover you'll be instantly labeled a "Raaaaacist" by a few million Libtards and nobody wants to even deal with that stupidity any more.

Frankly, Dell, I couldn't care less what the ill-educated Busybody Brigade accuses me of. I gave up on political correctness, and its nasty cousin, multiculturalism, back when I passed 75. Danny Glover is, was, and always has been an idiot, politically speaking. He lives in an alternate universe [Hollywood] which, regrettably, hasn't made one good movie in far too long a time. The writers and the producers do not believe in America as it actually is -- a truly exceptional country filled with creative, mostly kindly folks who reach out to those afflicted by natural disasters, like Haiti and its recent earthquake, every time.

As for Danny, he should give it a rest. He's becoming a boring, ill-educated and ill-intentioned old fart.

This is just like how for a while the Liberal community believed that Bush created Katrina because he didn't sign Kyoto.

Then they upgraded their stupid by claiming that Dick Cheney snuck down to the levy and planted explosives to kill black people.

What a bunch of weirdos.

Whenever someone starts in on that, I try my best to calmly explain to them how wrong they are, and how they need to think a little harder. Oh well.

It's sort of funny to think that out of the cast of Lethal Weapon, Gary Busey turned out to be the most sane one.

Don't forget that Bush caused the Tsunami too.

Anyone who actually READS the Bible and believes it knows that curses come on individuals, societies, and nations that worship the devil. It's cause and effect. It's frankly common sense spiritually.

If people don't believe the Bible - that's their problem. The Bible is very clear. The Haitian #1 religion is voodoo. From the biblical view, that's worship of Satan.

Therefore, Pat Robertson, as a Christian who read the Bible and knows what it says spoke the Bible telling people that the curses the Bible warns about are happening in Haiti.

Read the Bible a little more, and you'll see that in teh end times people will worship the devil by worshipping a one world government and world ruler. Then all hell will break loose making what happened in Haiti look weak.

Nonetheless, it's the same principle. The Bible CLEARLY STATES that those who worship the devil open the door to Satan and bring incredible curses upon themselves including STUPIDITY, poverty, tyranny, oppression, earthquakes, famine, wars, foreign occupation - and every calamity that one can consider until they are all killed.

That's what's going to happen at the very end of times.

Fine, if people don't believe the Bible.

However, Pat Robertson was speaking what the Bible says - and if anyone doesn't like it - that's their problem.

YOu better believe Haiti is under CURSES - the effect of those curses is clearly evident in manifestation - and now we've seen a major earthquake there. Pat Robertson told the truth. But people prefer to deny that the Bible is true. That's their problem.

Oh come on laura.

Look, Amsterdam is overrun with whores and sodomites. They should have weekly natural disasters. You really, really, really have to work hard to ignore all the places that are both non-Christian and not struck with a natural disaster like that quake. How about Katrina? Red state, plenty of Christians in New Orleans. Why then?

Hell why hasn't the Earth swallowed Las Vegas?

I may be fuzzy, but doesn't God usually give a big warning before smiting cities? Flaming portents or what have you?

You can't have it both ways. Either God is smiting cities that don't adhere to his will, or he's not. If he's not smiting all of them, why not? Why isn't a city like Vegas, built on sin and for the purposes of sin, a smoking crater in the ground?

Or is God being capricious and snooty? Does he throw darts at a board? Is that it?

Pat Robertson's "Haitian Curse" comments were discussed yesterday on an AM radio talkshow. My understanding is that while under French rule, Haitians sacrificed pigs on church altars in an appeal to Satan to free them from the French. They were freed of the French, but Haitians came to believe that the hardships of life there were God's curse for their heresy and sacrilege. The curse is what the Haitians believe they have brought upon themselves, not what Pat Robertson wished upon them.

Would someone please explain to me why I should give a s__t about what anyone from hollywood or sports or the music industry thinks?

Couldn't have said it better myself. Even though a real idiot may not like the comparison. There are some decent hard working idiots out there........yeah, sure, OK?

@ Laura, Your Jesus performs tricks with lepers and herds of swine, manages to get himself killed, magically rises from the dead and flies up to heaven to live with his dad(who is actually him, it all gets a bit confusing). Oh, by the way, his mom was a teenage virgin who got pregnant by a ghost(which is actually part of Jesus as well, see what I mean about getting confusing)?

You might want to step back and think about the silly load of crap you believe before you make fun of other people's religions. Just sayin'...

I thought that earth quakes had something to do with plates moving. When did it have anything to do with the climate?

Will, thanks, I am going to send your comment to my wife's brother who is a way out there preacher. Of course, I will get another beating, but it will be worth it.

@twolaneflash Robertson did not wish tragedy on Haiti. This is what he said (the first couple sentences in which he posits the theological explanation for the continuing and long term problems Haiti experiences would not post on this site, but there is nothing in it about wishing a curse or tragedy - just an explanation as to what might be the problem).

Robertson said that "ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other" and he contrasted Haiti with its neighbor, the Dominican Republic.

"That island of Hispaniola is one island. It is cut down the middle; on the one side is Haiti on the other is the Dominican Republic," he said. "Dominican Republic is prosperous, healthy, full of resorts, etc. Haiti is in desperate poverty. Same island. They need to have and we need to pray for them a great turning to god and out of this tragedy I'm optimistic something good may come. But right now we are helping the suffering people and the suffering is unimaginable."

Danny Glover is an IDIOT, This administration has already defined itself- too late

But to blame global warming for this? Glover is a MORON- earthquakes and global warming have ZERO to do with each other- blame Y2K... blame El Neno, blame crop circles... aliens... L Ron Hubbard... (OK that was redundant)....

@willbutler and fan:

What Jesus did was bring about the restructuring of man's relationship to man because of man's relationship to G-d, the idea that all human life is valuable - a slave was equal to a Caesar in G-d's eyes, and his true worth and salvation came from his relationship to G-d. He walked and preached among the lowly not the rulers, He taught that a tax collector could be more righteous than a religious leader depending on what was truly in each one's heart. He taught to render unto Caesar the transient things Caesar claims ownership of, but to render unto G-d a man's mind and soul. He brought Light to the world in this manner. He was tortured and killed for that, by those whose power He threatened. And He in turn is the basis of this nation's founding on the firm idea that we have inalienable rights which come from our Creator.
You might want to step back and think...before you...

The Haitian #1 religion is voodoo.

The CIA World Fact book says the country is 96% Christian.

BTW, Voodoo is not a religion per se.

Posted by: Purple Avenger at January 16, 2010 04:48 PM

@purpleavenger, it is what the people say they believe that matters. 2003 BBC report:

Last Updated: Wednesday, 30 April, 2003, 14:35
Haiti makes voodoo official
Summoning of spirits in a voodoo ceremony in Haiti
Over 90% of Haitians are said to practice voodoo

Voodoo has been practised in Haiti since the late 18th Century, but only now has it been recognised as a religion on a par with others worshipped in the country.

Haiti's Catholic President, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, took the decision earlier in April which means that voodoo ceremonies such as marriages now have equal standing with Catholic ones.

"The mixture of gods and goddesses and Catholic saints is an integral part of Haitian life - one common saying is that Haitians are 70% Catholic, 30% Protestant, and 100% voodoo.

"We've always been the majority religion in Haiti - it's never been illegal to be a voodooisant," said Mambu Racine Sumbu, an American voodoo priestess who has been practising in Haiti for 15 years"

The BBC is a rather dubious source of credible information these days.

Posted by: Purple Avenger at January 17, 2010 12:29 PM

Their were several Jesus' at the time of Jesus. They all did the same thing. But look at the aftermath of Jesus' teachings. In the last two thousand years the church of someone representing the church or someone using the definitions set up by the church have killed, tortured, maimed milions of people. As cruel as the Romans were, they were definitely out classed by the Christians. I feel their may be a God, but I feel that you will never find him in religion.

Posted by: David at January 17, 2010 01:52 PM

purpleavenger: of course they are since their report doesn't jive with the source you offered. There are other media with similar stories.

David: There is only one Jesus responsible for the things I listed. Some people doing wrong while stating they are Christians proves humans are fallible, not the tenets of Christianity. And if you want to use that as a basis for refuting the religion, then you will have to offset the bad with the good that is done by people claiming to be Christian. You are just wrong about the Romans as you are about the numbers. Lastly, atheist regimes are far and away the most murderous. Stalin, Pol Pot, Hitler, Mao, etc. Thinking is better than feeling.

Posted by: Jayne at January 18, 2010 12:35 AM

Read. Read some history of the church and religion. I note that you do not spell out the word God. Please be aware that God is not God's name so you can use it. The name that the Bible refers to that you can not say or write is not God.

Posted by: David at January 18, 2010 01:14 PM

Good point David. Pay attention now, Jayne. The name of God [our Judeo-Christian God] Cannot, of course be directly transliterated into our alphabet, but it is approximated by the name Jehovah, or Yahweh, IIRC.

Danny Glover is a prime example of taking all he can from our Capitalist system, and then trashing it. Then there is Jane Fonda aka " Hanoi Jane", Harry Belafonte, The Dixie Chicks, just to name a few.

I speak on behalf of all Americans please leave our country now. We do not want you here. Freedom was never to be abused by these idiots.

PS Idiots are also handling the 100 most interesting people in America. Jane Fonda has
been put in the top 100!!! Way to go Barbara Walters!!
