if there really is a god, do you think pat robertson would still be here with us?

I don’t know that he’s ever been right about one of these predictions of his, but Pat Robertson says really bad stuff is coming our way. (He heard it directly from The Big Guy himself.) Here’s a clip from “The Scotsman”:

PAT Robertson, an American Conservative Christian broadcaster says God told him a terrorist attack will result in “mass killing” in the United States in the second half of 2007.

“I’m not saying necessarily nuclear, the Lord didn’t say nuclear,” Mr Robertson said on his television show The 700 Club. “It’ll be mass killing, possibly millions of people, major cities.

“The evil people will come after this country and there’s a possibility, not a possibility, a definite certainty, that chaos is going to rule.”

Mr Robertson told viewers they should not be afraid because “if you get blown up or something, you go to heaven; that’s the worst thing that will happen to you”.

I’m not sure why God didn’t tell him about the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States. Maybe Pat’s done something to earn his trust since then, and moved up in the organization a little. (I bet it was that stunt where he prayed for the deaths of those Supreme Court justices he felt were too liberal. I suspect that God like chutzpah, and rewards it.)

My favorite part of the article, and the reason I’m mentioning it here now, is the last sentence. Here it is:

(Robertson) claims on his website that he can leg-press 2,000lb, thanks to an energy drink he promotes.

Yup, I think you can pretty well tell what the author thinks of Mr. Robertson. (Snake oil, anyone?)

    hey Mark, I bought the New York Times today. It’s part of my quest to become more well informed so I can say intelligent political things on your blog, instead of just cracking jokes. Not that there’s anything wrong with jokes. Of course, I don’t need credible news sources to tell me that Pat Robertson is a turkey.

    I would go so far as to say he’s a jive turkey.

    I guess it just goes to show how much he really must love God. Here he keeps giving Pat shitty information, and yet Pat, the humble servant, keeps accepting it as the gospel truth.

    Pat’s information is good, just a little stale.

    Pat also predicted in 1998 that Gay Days at Disney World would lead to hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, terrorist bombings, or a meteor strike.

    I wonder if Pat makes his employees in the diamnond mines drink this magic elixir of his so that they can crush rocks between their thighs.
