Rare Common Sense: January 2006 Archives

January 11, 2006

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.
