Why is this man still allowed on TV?

Pat Robertson is at it again. It was bad enough when he told Dover PA that God would not help them in case of a disaster.

Now he has come out and said that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was caused by divine retribution, because Sharon was "carving up Israel", which is God's land. I'm not making this up! Read it here.

If you wonder why a rabid-wingnut like Robertson would be so interested in a unified Israel. Michelle Goldberg of Salon explains here:

Christian Zionism, inspired by end-times beliefs that make the return of Jews to Israel a precondition for the second coming, has made American evangelicals the world's staunchest backers of Israeli hawks. (Their Jewish allies usually choose to ignore the fact that the Christian Zionist's apocalyptic scenario ends with unsaved Jews being slaughtered and condemned to hell.)

What is wrong with this man?
