Pat Robertson, the televangelist from Virginia Beach has warned (cursed) the town of Dover, PA on his show, "The 700 Club". He said, "I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: if there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city," He went on to say, "And don't wonder why He hasn't helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask for His help because he might not be there,"
As a Christian I am offended that this man is bent on presenting God as a hater and destroyer. Maybe it is age and he thinks he can get away with saying what he wants. I applaud free speech, but enough already. I thought the point of Robertson was to preach Jesus, and the reason He came to earth, but apparently Robertson is bent on people going to Hell, feeling God's wrath, and being assassinated.
This fresh revelation of God comes just months after he told his audience that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, should be "taken out." I am not hearing the love in this man, but animosity and anger. If you don't vote the way he wants then your town is doomed. What nerve. This is one for senility not God. I guess he overlooks the Scriptures that speak powerfully against wishing harm on another, because it will come to you instead.
We cannot overlook how he supposedly told the president that there would be heavy casualties in Iraq, but that God was with Bush, anyway.
Let me make this clear. Robertson is nothing more than a loud angry man who needs to go home and enjoy his money. Let the son take the reigns, because how much more should this country have to listen to him whenever he wants an air bite. He is a President wannabe, who couldn't even get all his supporters to get him on the ballot. Maybe that is the sign from God. Maybe God will do us all a favor and let him receive back the same kindness that he gave to the people of Dover, PA. If it's good enough for them, then it is good enough for him.
Indifference, to me, is the epitome of evil. Elie Wiesel
