Intelligent Design Isn't Creationism?

Pat Robertson seems to have forgotten the script: Intelligent Design isn't a religious idea, but a valid scientific theory that should be taught as a competing theory to evolution by natural selection.

Conservative Christian televangelist Pat Robertson told citizens of a Pennsylvania town that they had rejected God by voting their school board out of office for supporting “intelligent design” and warned them Thursday not to be surprised if disaster struck....

“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,” Robertson said on his daily television show broadcast from Virginia, “The 700 Club.”

“And don’t wonder why he hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for his help because he might not be there,” he said.

So much for that pretext. And, by the way, when did God become such an a**hole? "Don't ask for his help?" Is voting the school board out of office really so horrendous a sin that people cannot repent? Is there really no point in asking God's forgiveness?
