Pat Robertson: God's Mouthpiece

Self-appointed spokesman for God and professional crackpot, Pat Robertson, recently announced that God smote Prime Minister Sharon for dividing his (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.''

.... "in the Bible, the prophet Joel 'makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who 'divide my land.''

Sharon 'was dividing God's land and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU (European Union), the United Nations, or the United States of America,' Robertson said."
I would say whoa unto Pat Robertson. Thy mouth runneth over and thee brain hath absented itself.

So if God owns land in Israel and Robertson is such a big fan of God, why isn't Robertson over there in God's country? Either God owns no land in the U.S. or he hasn't noticed how we've carved it up and polluted it.
