Did you know that atheists are not only all miserable, but also want everyone else to be miserable too? Of course not, because it's not true - but Pat Robertson think it's true. What's more, it's something he's thinks is important enough to announce on his television program.

This is not the first time that Pat Robertson has said something nonsensical, false, or both. It's also not the first time that Robertson has expressed bigotry towards others and I'm sure that it won't be the last.
It's, well, Christmas all over again. The grinch is trying to steal our holiday.
It's been so beautiful. The nation comes together and we sing christmas carols. We give gifts to each other uh... we have uh... lighted treason and it's just a beautiful thing.
Atheists don't like your happiness. They don't want you to be happy they want you to be miserable. They're miserable so they want you to be miserable. So they want to steal your holiday away from you.

I've never seen any evidence that he cares very much about reality, just about reinforcing his own religious ideology. I have to wonder about those people who consistently watch his television program. Do they think they are learning anything new? Do they imagine that Pat Robertson has anything even vaguely useful to say to the world?
