Sound business sense.

Israel: Pat Robertson's plan to build a Biblical theme park has ground to a halt because the Israeli government refuses to do business with him. His recent comments that Ariel Sharon's stroke was a punishment from God just might be connected to the decision.

Avi Hartuv, a spokesman for Israel's tourism minister, said officials were furious about the remarks.

We will not do business with him - only with other evangelicals who don't back these comments, he said. We will do business with other evangelical leaders, friends of Israel, but not with him.

Robertson had hoped to attract a million visitors per year (and their money) to his Christian Heritage Centre in Galilee, close to several important Christian sites. There is no news as to whether Robertson has since declared Israel to be a dark land dominated by homosexuals.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
