This article describes Pat Robertson's call for the assasination of Venezuelan Preseident Hugo Chavez. This is just plain wrong. If he is guilty of crimes then he should be captured and tried. (Chavez, I mean - although that is true for Robertson too.) Robertson is reported as saying “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.”
Christians need to distance themselves from this sort of rhetoric.
