Pat Robertson does it again

Hot on the heels of his ‘lets kill Chavez’ remark, Robertson has another stonker:

And now Ariel Sharon, who was again a very likeable person, a delightful person to be with. I prayed with him personally. But here he is at the point of death. He was dividing God’s land, and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU, the United Nations or United States of America.

God said, “This land belongs to me, you better leave it alone.”

Save me Jebus.

    I was watching the 700 Club when he made that remark and to be honest it wasn’t as nasty as it reads. I have serious problems with Robertson, I think he’s more motivated by the dollar than by the crucifix, but he honestly does believe that this is the wrath of god being visited down on these guys.

    But then he needs Israel to return to it’s biblical glory so it can be wiped off at the map at the beginning of the apocalypse. It gets nuked and the rapture takes all the believers away. The hard sell for those tours of Israel sold on those networks is “See it now as it won’t be there for long”.

    If Rev. Robertson knows what God is going to do, why doesn’t he warn folks? And if God is now smiting fellows who divide, a repentant Robertson better have a word with the Big Guy. God knows where he lives. In fact, it’s a little surprising that he hasn’t already awakened with a Holy Hand Grenade in his boxers!

    Look on the bright side, though: We didn’t elect Robertson president. American Jews might be forced to wear Stars of David on their lapels or something equally creative. Rev. Robertson just seems a little too eager for fellow humans to suffer — Hugo Chavez, for example — for a clergyman. Say a prayer for poor Pat.

    Didn’t see the actual footage, and your post is the first I’ve heard of it.

    Am I to understand that Mr Robertson, may be inferring that Aeriel Sharon’s illness may be God’s punishment because he returned Gaza to the Palestinians???!!

    So the US has it’s own Ian Paisley… God help them. I really do feel angry that people like this are given air-time and attention. Worse still, are all the main religions of the world determined to return our thinking to that of medieval times??

    And as Ron says, if he knows what God is going to do, why not share the information, wouldn’t that be the Christian thing to do??
