Happy New Year!

Due to a lack of interest in the world at large, I haven't posted in quite some time. I've been trying to find something interesting I could write about for the last couple of days to ring in the new year and this is all I got...

If you don't know who this is, chances are you've lived a happier life. So if you'd like to keep it this way, I wouldn't read following.

Pat Robertson is a Southern Baptist televangelist and a member of that absurdly nutty group known as the über Religious Right. You know, those Republicans who believe they are among the chosen few God has put on this planet to unequivocally lead and where other cultures and/or opinions are viewed as a slight against God. Sometimes I think sanity is taken for granted.

Patty has made headlines recently by saying that "God has told him there will be a horrific terrorist attack on major cities, perhaps in the United States, in the second half of this year." Pat himself has said, "The Lord didn't say nuclear, but I do believe it will be something like that."

Predicting a terrorist attack in the year 2007 is as easy as predicting the weather in the Sahara Desert. Pat has nothing to lose here, if there isn't a terrorist attack in a major city then everyone wins. However, when there is a terrorist attack in a major city (which unfortunately is going to happen) he'll take credit for it and use it as evidence that God speaks to him as if he were some sort of prophet.

In 2006, he predicted heavy storms hitting the United States. Storms?! Here?! Thanks for the warning, Pat! He also said a tsunami would hit the Pacific Northwest, but I guess you can't win 'em all.

Being crazy is nothing new for Pat Robertson who routinely says outlandish things.

On other Christian denominations...
"You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist."

Regarding Gay Day at Disney World...
"I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes and I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you. This is not a message of hate; this is a message of redemption. But a condition like this (Gay Day) will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring about terrorist bombs, it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor."

On the court system...
"The courts are merely a ruse, if you will, for humanist, atheistic educators to beat up on Christians."

*Not included are any of Robertson's hate-filled rants on Islam, homosexuality, Hindus, feminism, liberalism, Hugo Chávez, or the city of Dover, PA.

Oh, and he has also defended China's One-Child Policy and its mandated abortions.

I would like to include more of Pat's words of wisdom, but God has just started talking to me!

God says that we should not listen to Pat Robertson and that He forgives Pat for trying to exploit Him for Pat's own personal gain. God can't say the same for His son though. Jesus is mad!
