Pat Robertson's Greatest Hits

In the past nutjobs, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, spokesmen for God, have announced that God punished pagans, gays, and feminists by sending hurricanes to destroy them. When I heard the news today that Biloxi, Mississippi was hit hard, I wondered if it had become a center for the free-thinking and educated folks Pat Robertson and God hate so much so I searched the news to see if Falwell or Robertson had revealed God's purpose yet and that's when I found the following compilation of Pat Robertson's greatest hits in the News for Denton, Texas:

"Here are a few of Robertson's greatest hits. In a 1992 fund-raising letter he wrote, The 'feminist agenda' is a 'socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.'

On his show 'The 700 Club,' Robertson once proclaimed that gay groups had better stop flying flags celebrating Gay Pride Month at Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Fla. or else.

He said all involved would incur the wrath of God if they didn't heed his advice. 'I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes,' Robertson declared on the air. 'It'll bring about terrorist bombs. It'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor.'

On 'The 700 Club' two days after the 2001 attacks, Robertson's guest, the Rev. Jerry Falwell, suggested that 'the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way all of them who have tried to secularize America' helped cause the attacks.

'I totally concur,' Robertson replied.

Robertson also has said he would like to set off a nuclear bomb to destroy the State Department in Washington and declared that federal judges are destroying the fabric that holds our nation together. He said they are more dangerous than the terrorists who destroyed the World Trade Center.

It is baffling and somewhat frightening that Robertson still has any credibility.

But he soldiers on. "

No word on what God was up to when he struck Biloxi or why he didn't send that hurricane down to Venezuela to "take out" Hugo Chavez as Pat Robertson requested.
