Cosmic justice

Filed under: Be HEALED!, humor, scumbags — Frontier Former Editor @ 7:49 pm

While I’m not a far-left leaning sort of person, I generally believe there are much more pressing problems in this world than passing anti-gay marriage amendments or other conservative knee-jerk social engineering.

Once we ensure that our children are well-fed, healthy and educated; that people have the sorts of opportunities associated with the most powerful nation on earth; and that the citizenry’s basic rights are re-established, then maybe life will get back on an even keel.

But while we all wait for that day, I take some comfort in what happened to Pat Roberston and his bastion of American higher education, Regent University.

Back in the late 1980’s Regent tried to claim the highway in front of its campus under Virginia’s Adopt-A-Highway roadsidie cleanup program. Turned out that a gay-lesbian activist organization already had gotten the roadway and had its state-issued adoption signs bracketing the campus.

Regent and Robertson raised all sorts of hell and threatened legal action but were told to pack it by the state Department of Transportation.

I hope the signs are still up. I still remember Robertson when he was a low-rent televangelist with a VHF station showing Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker in the early morning and Gilligan’s Island reruns at night.
