The Culture Of Life, Revised

President Bush and his evangelical supporters often cite "The culture of life" when justifying their opposition to stem cell research and abortion. It certainly is a noble sounding phrase, and anyone who seeks to argue about is obviously evil and doomed to burn in the fiery pits of hell for all eternity.

Apparently, however, there are exemptions. Perhaps we should now call it "The culture of life, version 2.0."

Noted televangelist Pat Robertson, who is head of the Christian Broadcasting Network and founder of the Christian Coalition of America, went on his show and openly called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

See, that's the wonderful thing about being an evangelical Christian! Not only do you get to self-righteously claim to follow the Bible and all it teaches, accept the lord Jesus Christ as your savior, and value the sanctity of all human life (including embryonic cells in a Petri dish), but you get to decide when to make exceptions to God's laws!!!

How cool a deal is that!!!
