Jack Beatty on Pat Robertson

February 08, 1988

Beatty certainly left no stone unthrown in his lambasting verbal crucifixion of Robertson as "either an utter fool or a smarmy con man," although it was clear his jabs were also intended for fundamental Christians.

It is a dangerous practice to make sweeping generalizations about any group of people, whether they are born-again Christians, politicians or news media people.

Lumping together some 35 million born-again Christians as Robertson supporters because they are Christians is about as intelligent as claiming that some 240 million Americans are Ronald Reagan supporters because they are American.
