I guess Rev. Jesse Jackson hasn't been reading my blog - One person's lack of compassion does not equal another's comfort.
One person's lack of comprehension does not equal another's consent.
I guess Rev. Jesse Jackson hasn't been reading my blog
This is exactly the sort of reaction I was hoping I would not see. Do I need to remind anyone that prior to 9/11 when Osama Bin Laden was not yet explicitely a marked man there was *PLENTY* of talk about assassinating him and it wasn't called "illegal" at the time. It might be different if Pat Robertson was the head of the CIA, but as far as I know he isn't, and not even a candidate for the position.

Trying to hold Pat Robertson accountable for his words will only serve to restrict the civil rights of Americans, most notably, the right to free speech. Rev. Jackson is obviously not thinking clearly.

Excerpt: CARACAS, Venezuela - The Rev. Jesse Jackson offered support for President Hugo Chavez on Sunday, saying a call for his assassination by a U.S. religious broadcaster was a criminal act and that Washington and Venezuela should work out their differences through diplomacy.

The U.S. civil rights leader condemned last week's suggestion by Pat Robertson that American agents should kill the leftist Venezuelan leader, calling the conservative commentator's statements "immoral" and "illegal."
