Pat Robertson Please Apologize

For those of you who keep up with news in the world you most likely have heard about the ballot intiative in Dover, PA that was just rejected. The ballot was a voting initiative to keep or not keep "Intelligent Design" in the curriculum of the local public schools. The votes were tallied and the community voted to not teach Intelligent Design in public schools. You may or may not agree with this, but I hope as a follower of Christ you will join me in asking Pat Robertson to apologize to this community. Shortly after the voting was tallied Mr. Robertson commented on his nationally syndicated TV show the 700 Club. His words were pointed directly to this community

"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God. You just rejected him from your city..."

in a way they did, but he didn't need to condem them on national TV either. Its quite sad they voted that down.

Why would they need to vote Creationism into the public school system? The weren't voting to outlaw parents or churches teaching what they believe. Creationism should not be taught in a public school system, if that were the case then why wouldn't they teach the Babylonian creation story, or the Story Book of Creation from the Wiccan religion. You don't have to disagree with the traditional Biblical Creation story to disagree with having it in the public school system. They did not turn from God, I know some great followers of Christ who would have voted the exact same way.
