It appears Pat Robertson has a direct link to God. That link has come up with some startling news over the years. If any of it is true, I would say God has an anger management problem. Mr. Robertson is just a messenger folks don't blame him. The latest missive from God is this rather angry...
"God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program "The 700 Club." "You read the Bible and he says 'This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, 'No, this is mine.'"
Yes and it was God that devastated New Orleans due to the perverse life style of people living there, not to mention 9/11 was the result of God's anger over the presence of gays and lesbians.
And lets not forget Robertson's wardning to the people of Dover PA after they threw out the school board members who had advocated the teaching of "intelligent design" — the belief that the universe is so complex that it must have been created by a higher power — as an alternative to the theory of evolution.
"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God," he said. "You just rejected him from your city." - Washington Post
Now do you think Pat Robertson was hoping for a disaster here? If this guy did not have such a large following of people that devote millions of dollars to keep his Pulpit on TV, you could laugh, but these people vote. They vote as their earthly Idol suggests and that helps explain why we have George W. Bush and one heck of a mess in Iraq as well as the largest deficits in world history.
God Bless America.
