Well, Pat Robertson is at it again. He is talking to God. And I don’t understand why he gets to talk to God. I mean, God doesn’t talk to just “anyone”. Face it, God didn’t even appear to Mary to let her in on the little joyous news that he had impregnated her with his holy sperm – he sent an angel to do that. But when he wants to destroy the world, well, he goes straight to Pat Robertson to let him know.
We are going to experience a nuclear attack in 2007, according to God and Pat Robertson. Well, let me clarify that, as Robertson did, he said “God didn’t say ‘nuclear’.” But, you know, that could be because God pronounces it funny, like George Bush, and he didn’t want to look uneducated in front of Pat Robertson, of all people. So, God didn’t actually *say* nuclear, he just said “mass killings in major US cities”, Which Robertson interpreted as “nuclear”. And you know, Thank God we have Pat Robertson to interpret the word of God for us. But, Robertson has been interpreting God’s word for years, so he has lots of practice.
So, most likely this latest warning will come with appeals from Robertson for “mass prayers”, like he did to single handedly reverse the course of those hurricanes- although I don’t know who he wants us to pray to. Robertson believes that we have all turned away from God, what with our wanton homosexuality, and feminism, and liberalism. As he told the people of Pennsylvania “Don’t go crying to God when you all get some disaster – you’re all freaks and God hates you”.
I just don’t know why God doesn’t tell this guy “Look, Pat, you’re a fucking lunatic”. Oh but then again, probably God doesn’t swear. And he probably still talks like he did in the Bible, so God would say “Look-eth, Pat, you are not-eth to interpret-eth my words anymore-eth. Stop telling the Episcopalians that they harbor the spirit of the Anti Christ – what the hell did the Episcopalians ever do to anybody? And don’t tell people that “you” steered the course of Hurricane Gloria, I don’t like it when people take credit for my work – and that was all ME, bud. And gays and lesbians had NOTHING to do with the attacks of September 11th – and tell your President it wasn’t Iraq or Saddam Hussein, either – don’t you people read USA Today?” But, then again, maybe God is just letting the guy spout his inane bullshit so that God can smote him – right on the airwaves. Wouldn’t *that* be cool? Because that’s what I would do if I was God – I’d smote him live on the 700 Club. Although God would probably have to smote him twice, since Pat Robertson drinks that super-duper energy shake and can leg press 2,000 pounds. Maybe that’s why God hasn’t smoted him yet – he has to work up to it.
But, Pat Robertson isn’t the only one God appears to – he appears to AFCA members, as well. So there, Pat Robertson. And here is what God has told AFCAN’s is going to happen in 2007: And I will update this list as more AFCAn’s weigh in – God can’t appear to everyone in one night – he’s not Santa Claus or anything.
