"Payback" for Pat Robertson

Looks like Israel isn't letting Pat "the Mouth" Robertson get away with his outrageous comments about Ariel Sharon:
Israel punishes US TV evangelist
Israel is pulling out of a $50 million deal with US TV evangelist Pat Robertson after he said Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine retribution.

Tourism Ministry spokesman Ido Hartuv said Israel would not sign a contract with Mr Robertson to build a biblical theme park by the Sea of Galilee.

Is it being unduly cynical to wonder whether both those deals were going to be cancelled anyway?

It is depressing to note how making really outrageous, hate-filled comments seems to be the road to the top of the evangelical Christian heap. Of course, that is what makes them Kristians rather than followers of Christ's word...
