I'm sure this is old news by now, but Pat Robertson has blamed the destruction of Katrina on the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for choosing Ellen Degeneres to host the Emmys.
Dateline Hollywood provides this story that reads, in part:
In order to avoid further tragedy, Robertson called not only for the Television Academy to find a new heterosexual host, but to bar all homosexuals and bisexuals from taking part in the ceremony.
He said employees at the Christian Broadcasting Network had put together a list of 283 nominees, presenters, and invited guests at the Emmys known to be of sexually deviant persuasions.
“God already allows one awards show to promote the homosexual agenda,” Robertson declared. “But clearly He will not tolerate such sinful behavior to spread beyond the Tonys.”
Hmmmm... Do ya'll remember Senator Joseph McCarthy?
