And now to Pat Robertson with the weather
Pat, Pat, Pat. On the one hand, you tell the viewers of The 700 Club that the Lord is a kind and passionate being that helps all, as long as people call in with the donations the Lord needs to help everyone. Yet, on the other hand, you tell them four times in the last two weeks that the Lord told you huge storms, and a possible tsunami, will hit the coasts of America this year. I'm no theologian, but would that make the Lord vengeful, or at least a gossip-monger?
Yes, Pat Robertson has added 'weather prognostication' to his resume, pretty much making The Weather Channel obsolete overnight. His predictions began last week when he said that the Lord told him during a prayer retreat that huge storms would lash both coasts of the United States this year. On Wednesday of this week he said that something as bad as a tsunami could hit the Pacific Northwest this summer.
Of course, we should take these predictions seriously. As serious as we took his suggestions that we should assassinate the president of Venezuela and that former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had his massive stroke because of his pull-out from the Gaza Strip.
