Not So Keen on Commandment 5

Televangelist Pat Robertson, in the early stages of what he has billed as "A Righteous, Violent Death a Week for Jesus, or at the Least for Me," has followed his previous calls for the demise of Supreme Court Justices, and his no-doubt rooting for Cindy Sheehan's mom's stroke, with today's call for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, according to the AP:

You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... and I don't think any oil shipments will stop.

It seems Robertson, at least nominally a Christian, has yet to be informed that the story of Christ comes from the New Testament. Rumor has it the books of the New Testament have something to do with forgiveness.
