Televangelist -- and onetime GOP presidential candidate -- Pat Robertson appeared on ABC's "This Week" where he said so many vile and asinine statements that no single newspaper could hold them all:

"Out-of-control" federal judges are the most serious threat to America's survival in its history "more dangerous even than Islamic terrorism, Nazi Germany and the Civil War" religious broadcaster Pat Robertson asserted Sunday. ***

About 3,000 Americans were killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York City and the Pentagon. Another 1,700-plus have died since then in wars that grew out of the attacks.

Robertson told ABC that the federal judiciary, as currently constituted, represents the biggest threat to America in its history. He warned: "They're destroying the fabric that holds our nation together."

His interviewer, George Stephanopolous, asked whether Robertson was saying that the threat posed by federal judges was more dire than the Civil War, World War II, and the terrorists who struck on Sept. 11.

Robertson replied: "I really believe that. ... I think that the gradual erosion of the consensus that's held our country together is probably more serious than a few bearded terrorists who fly into buildings."

[Robertson] would not appoint Muslims to serve in his Cabinet and that he doesn't favor Muslims serving as judges.

"They have said in the Koran there's a war against all the infidels," he said. "Do you want somebody like that sitting as a judge? I wouldn't."

There are many reasons that I regret my youthful dalliance with the Republican party -- but at least it gave me the opportunity to vote against Pat Robertson.
