Since When is Compassion a Bad Word?

I could blog quite a rant about Pat Robertson's horrible comments. Yet, I think Jon Stewart had it covered when he held up the Bible and said, "Has he even read this book." Somehow I don't think Pat's behavior falls into the "What Would Jesus Do" loving behavior category.

When you have a position of power in ministry or like Rush Limbaugh as an icon in radio - there is a responsibility to think beyond the foot in your mouth. Thousands of people are suffering and Pat can't pull out one psalm or verse of comfort. Limbaugh is saying how this "plays" right into Obama being able to offer compassion.

Well folks, I'll take the compassion and empathy over hot air and condemnation thanks.
