Stop Angel Rape or God Smash

His jowls jiggling with outrage, Pat Robertson has shocked the world by announcing to his tee-vee audience that his favorite god is angry -- so angry! god smash! grrr! -- about the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad achievement of marriage equality in New York:



In short, Pat Robertson's jiggling jowls have a message for the lawmakers of New York: raping angels has been known to activate the Bible god's kill switch before, and you wouldn't like him when he's angry.

Yawn.

It must be interesting to be Pat Robertson (assuming you have a rather paltry sense of what counts as interesting). Not only do you get to see those jowls jiggle in every mirror you face -- I'll bet he can really get them going when he works at it -- but whenever anything bad happens to someone, or even to a nation-state of someones, he has a ready-made explanation: they were caught raping angels or granting equal rights to people or committing some other god-maddening transgression.

The presence of this ready-made explanation must spare him a great deal of time and energy that other people have to devote to, you know, engaging with reality thoroughly enough to understand the actual cause-effect relationships in the world.
