Pat Robertson is Good For a Laugh
It is just a few months since I was last given the chance to laugh at Pat. Fortunately for all of us he has come up with another chuckle for all of us.
“WASHINGTON (Reuters) — Conservative Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson told citizens of a Pennsylvania town that they had rejected God by voting their school board out of office for supporting “intelligent design” and warned them Thursday not to be surprised if disaster struck.
Robertson, a former Republican presidential candidate and founder of the influential Christian Broadcasting Network and Christian Coalition, has made similar apocalyptic warnings and provocative statements before.
Last summer, he hit the headlines by calling for the assassination of leftist Venezuelan Present Hugo Chavez, one of President George W. Bush’s most vocal international critics.
“I’d like to say to the good citizens of Dover: if there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city,” Robertson said on his daily television show broadcast from Virginia, “The 700 Club.”
“And don’t wonder why He hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for His help because he might not be there,” he said.”
Clearly Pat has not had the opportunity to read and learn about Pastafarians and The Flying Spaghetti Monster creator of all that is good and holy. Because if he had he wouldn’t make such ignorant remarks.
Besides everyone knows that beyond religious wackos the real threat to society is the reemergence of Mothra and Rodan. We can only hope and pray that Godzilla returns to fight on our behalf.

You are so right.

Pat Robertson = one of the many that don’t know the meaning of metaphor.
The biblical “From the dust of the earth” is most likely is an allusion to evolution.
But Pat wouldn’t get that his mind is not as evolved.

That made me smile.

just remember, you just voted God out of your city.
That is so unfair. I mean, how many voters even knew that God was on the Board of Education? I have no idea who’s on my city’s Board of Education, but you can be sure I’m going to find out before I accidentally vote God off.
Any word on what God’s going to be doingonce His term’s up? Speaking engagements, maybe? Is He considering running again in the next election?

He’s like one of those crazy people on the subway who mutter to themselves. Puuurple! Mumble mumble mutter mumble. Rice Crispies! Grrrr. Ruff ruff! Someone really ought to keep him inside where it’s safe.

Pat is a piece of work.

I feel bad, because I would have voted God out, too.
But I justify it by remembering that God also created Pat Robertson.
Everyone makes mistakes.
