I guess God was not amused when the good Rev forgot to pray for those rock solid Christian states of Alabama and Mississippi this week. Had he but remembered, all would have been well. After all, as he once told his viewers, it was his prayers that turned Hurricanes Gloria in ’85 and Felix in ’95 away from Hampton Roads, where The 700 Club is headquartered.
In ’98 Robertson predicted God would send Hurricane Bonnie to Disney World as punishment for their sins. But it skipped Orlando entirely and barrelled right into Robertson’s Hampton Roads. Oh that God – such a joker!
He agreed with Falwell [In 2001] when Falwell stated that the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks were caused by “pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, lesbians, the American Civil Liberties Union and the People For the American Way.”
On the June 8, 1998 edition of his show, Robertson . . . stated that the acceptance of homosexuality could result in hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, terrorist bombings and “possibly a meteor.” . . .
On the January 13, 2010 broadcast of The 700 Club, Robertson blamed the Haitians for making a deal with the Devil during their 1791 slave rebellion, resulting in the Haitian Earthquake of January 12, 2010 and other misfortunes.
