Nutcase Theology

I'll leave the actual discussion of theology to others, but I'm curious about what Amy Sullivan writes here:

I try not to comment on all of the ridiculous things that come out of Pat Robertson's mouth because 1) he's a moonbat who seems to be reading a very different translation of the Bible than I am, and 2) most evangelicals, even conservative ones, don't think of him as a spokesperson who represents their views.

So who would represent the views of conservative evangelicals better than Pat Robertson? It's a serious question - I have no idea - but most of the prominent media figures who are supposedly representing those views don't seem to be significantly different from Robertson to me, though maybe I'm just not picking up on the differences.

I'm not trying to be snarky here, it's a serious question. I'd quite like the views of religious conservatives to be represented by people who are less nuts than Pat Robertson even if I subscribe neither to their religion nor the politics. Let's put these people on TV!
