Pat Robertson Needs to Shut His Piehole

Via AP:
NORFOLK, Va. — Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine punishment for "dividing God's land."

"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.'"

There he goes again. Is any commentary really necessary?

UPDATE: Ariel Sharon is 77 years old and morbidly obese. Could a stroke be anything but the wrath of God?

The Holy Spirit's message on the Christian Prophet blog today explains why Pat Robertson is "insane." A much more reasonable view of Christianity would be that shown be The Holy Inheritance blog.

I remember that Course in Miracles stuff from my new age wanderings. Interesting enough, but why take the word of a couple of modern university professors who claim to have received holy revelation, versus a 4,000 year tradition of revelation that hasn't ceased?

No one lives forever, right? I think we should come up with the reason that Pat Robertson's death is God's punishment so that we'll have it ready when the time comes.

Zeke, I totally agree with you. It's time for Pat Robertson to "go away", along with his buddy the Rev. Jerry Falwell. Or as I like to think of them, the Abbot & Costello of fundamentalism.

I haven't taken anything Robertson has said seriously since that day long ago in CT I heard him on the 700 club say and I quote "I see the cancer leaving your body. You are now healed, there is no more cancer." I deduced at that time that this guy had seriously checked out of hotel reality.

Dorse, I don't know that I'd view Robertson's passing as a divine punishment from God. I would tend to believe it was more of a divine blessing from God. Maybe God would think that His children had suffered enough fire and brimstone from Pat.

The thing that breaks my heart is that Robertson presents something that's so easy to reject. He calls it Christianity. Are there people out there who never encountered Christianity because they were so repulsed by Falwell's counterfeit?

Craig, that's a sobering take on this. I got so busy throwing pies at Robertson that I neglected to even think about the damage his kind of foolishness can do to the reputation of the faith.

Strange that I slipped and called him "Falwell" the second time. Come to think of it, you never see them together. Hmmm ... maybe they're one and the same.

Just a little bit of a different perspective....

I hang around a lot of people that I do not believe go to church or consider themselves believers...yet also know that I am one, and a pastor of sorts....

None of them seem to equate my Christianity with that of the Pat Robertson crowd.

And in my opinion, those "non-believers" that I know and talk with are more repulsed and effected by the "Christianity" exhibited by President Bush and his agendas than they are by loons like Robertson.
