God to Robertson: ‘Say Something Crazy’

Pat Robertson is at it again, this time claiming God told him that a major terrorist attack in 2007—possibly nuclear—would result in “mass killing.” The preacher on Tuesday demanded partial credit for predicting a possible tsunami last year, citing spring rains that drenched New England, so don’t rush to judge this latest communique.


AP:

“I’m not necessarily saying it’s going to be nuclear,” he said during his news-and-talk television show “The 700 Club” on the Christian Broadcasting Network. “The Lord didn’t say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that.”

Robertson said God told him during a recent prayer retreat that major cities and possibly millions of people will be affected by the attack, which should take place sometime after September.

Robertson said God also told him that the U.S. only feigns friendship with Israel and that U.S. policies are pushing Israel toward “national suicide.”

Robertson suggested in January 2006 that God punished then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon with a stroke for ceding Israeli-controlled land to the Palestinians.

It isn’t saying something crazy we should worry over; it is the Crazies that listen and donate to this nit-wit, we should worry over. Why did he not talk of a burning bush, the other guy did?

Perhaps god is going to judge the United States because too many Democrats were elected to Congress; in 2006?
