Jim has shown just how out of touch he really is by voting an astounding 92% of the time with Pat Robertson's agenda! This ties him with Tom Reynolds as the most inline with Pat Robertson/out of touch Congressman in New York State.
Here are some classic Pat Robertson quotes:
On the September 11th Terrorist Attack:
"We have imagined ourselves invulnerable and have been consumed by the pursuit of ... health, wealth, material pleasures and sexuality... It [terrorism] is happening because God Almighty is lifting his protection from us."
On whose qualified to serve in government:
"Individual Christians are the only ones really -- and Jewish people, those who trust God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob -- are the only ones that are qualified to have the reign, because hopefully, they will be governed by God and submit to Him."
On other Protestants:
"You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist. I can love the people who hold false opinions but I don't have to be nice to them."
On a woman's place:
"I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that's the way it is, period."
"With all due respect to those dear people, my friend, God Almighty does not hear the prayer of a Jew."
On Dover, PA:
"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. 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."
Does Central New York really deserve a Congressman who agrees with Pat Robertson 92% of the time?
