Oh. Well. Okay Then.

Prophet Pat Robertson now says that he was "misinterpreted" by the media. He meant that we should kidnap the president of Venezuela -- Hugo Chavez -- not kill him.

Saith the prophet Robertson: "I said our special forces should 'take him out.' 'Take him out' could be a number of things including kidnapping.

"There are a number of ways of taking out a dictator from power besides killing him. I was misinterpreted by the AP, but that happens all the time."

Oh, well. That's much better. It's not like kidnapping is a crime or anything. It's just like ... being playful. Like when you blindfold your husband and take him out (there's that phrase again!) on a date. As a surprise, I mean. Kidnapping is like that and not like an act of terrorism. Pat Robertson wouldn't endorse terrorism, being a Man of God and all.
