Would I be out of line to say that Pat Robertson is destroying America? That’s about as mild as I’ll keep it, as we’re trying to pass BSO as a distinguished, well tempered, family-friendly blog. But seriously, folks, Pat Robertson is a bastard.
On today’s 700 Club, Robertson said the following:
Ladies and Gentlemen I said last year that Israel was entering into the most dangerous periods of its entire existence as a nation. That is intensifying this year with the loss of Sharon. Sharon was personally a very likeable person and I am sad to see him in this condition, but I think we need to look at the Bible and the Book of Joel. The prophet Joel makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who “divide my land.” God considers this land to be His. 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.” I had a wonderful meeting with Yitzhak Rabin in 1974. He was tragically assassinated, it was a terrible thing that happened but nevertheless he was dead. And now Ariel Sharon who again was a very likeable person, a delightful person to be with, I prayed with him personally, but here he’s at the point of death. He 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, the United Nations, or the United States of America. God says “this land belongs to me. You’d better leave it alone.” (Transcript: PFAW)
The problem is, people believe this nutjob. Remember, this is the same guy who illegally calls for the assasination of foreign leaders. He’s crazy. He and his neo-con are destroying America. Look Pat, I wasn’t thrilled about giving up Israeli settlements. I’m 110% pro-Israel. But seriously, Pat, you’re full of it. ‘Nuff said.
