Dear Pat Robertson,
I am an atheist.
I do not serve the devil.
There is no devil.

Isn't Pat Robertson dead yet?
Pat is immortal. God doesn't want him, and Satan can't think of a harsh enough torment for him.

Belial? I'm more of a Tharizdun kinda guy.
Okay, am I the ONLY Loki man here? It's starting to look that way. I really do not appreciate this one bit.

There is a verse in the old testiment which essesntially suggests that "your oxen (for a plow) should not be unequally yoked".
Now clearly, the author was not talking about farming but about relationships and how they only work well when all parties do their share. THAT doesn't take a brain surgeon and almost every society has a parallel for that sentiment.
But Christians have been pointing to that verse for as God's direct comandment that Christians shouldn't marry with other ethnicities and, in general, anyone who is not a Christian.
Their sense of entitlement has always been mind-blowing.
If it's okay to take a bible passage out of context like that, then I think that God was ordering the Israelites to check their wheel alignment regularly
The idea that your quote there wasn't specifically referring to agricultural technique is pretty unfounded. There's quite a bit in The Bible that specifically refers to different farming techniques (for example, that sewing two different kinds of grain side by side is an abomination, punishable by death), so it's perfectly likely they were saying "harness your oxen side by side or YOU SHALL BURN IN HELL" because it scans better than "Farmer Luke's Top Ten Plowin' Tips".
Also, using your metaphor, you're saying The Bible suggests that in a relationship, both people should have an equal amount of dignity, sacrifice and respect? Cause that's pretty much at odds with every other word in there.
Citrus makes an important point; They had no movie references to work with back then; the only thing you could compare things do was everyday life, which often involved oxen, plows, and wineskins.
Oh that's one of those verses that fundamentalist Christians don't take so fundamentally.
They're fundamentalists when it comes to the things they don't like, which the bible happens to mention, like gay people, physics and cosmology, but just as subjective in their interpretation of the bible when it comes to say, stoning disobedient children, shellfish and slavery.

A creaky old man just asked someone over national TV if she was getting intimate with her boyfriend.

Pat's right. If you're married to someone who sent a sincere request for advice from Pat Robertson... fucking end it. Pat just did that guy the biggest favor of his life.
What bothers me is those stunned bitches he gets to nod along with his shit. "Absolutely Pat. That's so true, that is so true."
I like that bit at the end.
"There is no peace in that situation. What." (sidelong glance at the uppity negress sitting opposite him)
"That is so true. That is so true. I'm only saying how true that is."
"You may live."

Funny how a religion that continually advertises and bases it's foundations on it's extreme levels of openness, tolerance, and understanding abandons those qualities almost as soon as you walk in their metaphorical door.
Pat Robertson would taser you into unconsciousness if you accused him of 'tolerance'.
Didn't he blame 9/11 on tolerance?

I like the instant karma aspect. Anyone stupid enough to ask Pat Robertson for advice deserves Pat Robertson's advice.
