So where was Pat Robertson?

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.”[8][9]

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.

UPDATE: Maybe this is why the South felt God’s wrath. And the reason Rev Pat didn’t pray for them is because rape is kind of okay. Wimmin gettin’ so uppity and all these days.

  1. I wonder if back in the 60s did Robertson have one to many LSD trips, and eventually fried his brains?


  2. Isn’t he just awful? Such bigotry and hatred. How he squares that with the Bible is beyond me, but all those fundies seem to have their own interpretation and it’s always sooo convenient to their own worldview.


    • And they are treated as credible people – by the mainstream media! There are always fringe nuts out there, but they don’t belong on Meet The Press.


  3. Idaho in the rape belt?!?

    That’s my home state, and I still have family there. How upsetting!


  4. What is the rape belt ? I am not familiar with the term .
