Pat Robertson accused of Damaging Movement

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]sunfell)

Pat Robertson's peers say his off the wall remarks are damaging the extreme religious right's reputation.

Ya think?

"[Robertson] is in a very visible leadership position and comments such as recent ones related to Mr. Sharon and so many others are misinformed and presumptuous and border on arrogance," said David Dockery, president of Union University, a private college affiliated with the Tennessee Baptist Convention.

Dockery suggested Robertson might want to consult other theologians "before making these pronouncements so quickly."

"It puts the evangelical movement in a bad light when that happens because people make broad generalizations, rightly or wrongly, all the time," said Dockery, who also is chairman of the board for the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.
