A Pious Hit List

I judge a man by his actions with men, much more than by his declarations Godwards—When I find him to be envious, carping, spiteful, hating the successes of others, and complaining that the world has never done enough for him, I am apt to doubt whether his humility before God will atone for his want of manliness.
Anthony Trollope (1815–82), novelist

Taken from Slates’ article “Pat Robertson’s Hit List,” I thought I would make Robertson’s hit list a bit more succinct:

  • David Souter
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg
  • Stephen Breyer
  • John Paul Stevens
  • Pagans
  • Abortionists
  • Feminists
  • Gays
  • Lesbians
  • ACLU
  • People for the American Way
  • Scotland
  • European bankers
  • Bavarian illuminati

Robertson should be exposed for the charlatan that he is as he goes about defrauding many of those who buy into his nonsense. You could guess that in a number of the cases, he is taking advantage of the least educated among us and those that can least afford it to donate money. It's shameful.
