Krymson Tyde: My house is at the very tip of that red streak in GA and I saw that bastard forming just behind us.


God hates red streaks.

"But the hurricane for example is a release mechanism that God set in to take the heat out of this world and to transfer heat around various parts of the globe," he added."

Christianity make perfect sense, no?

It is guys like Pat that totally delegitimize (based off public perception) anyone that identifies with/follows the Christian faith.

Bendal: There's a video circulating on YouTube that shows some woman praying away a tornado last Friday. The storm can be seen circulating overhead, and in the background you see a woman holding up her hands and saying something to the effect of "Lord, keep this storm away from this house!" over and over again.

Of course the news crews found out who she was and interviewed her; the home only suffered minor damage and when she was asked if she thought her prayers helped, she said "of course they did". I guess she forgot that if they did, her prayers sent it to someone else's home. Or maybe she didn't care.


Christians never care if someone else gets hurt.

NutWrench: Time for a trip down memory lane with Pat. Enjoy! (new window, sfw)

10. "Lord, give us righteous judges who will not try to legislate and dominate this society. Take control, Lord! We ask for additional vacancies on the court." -Pat Robertson

9. "Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history." -Pat Robertson

8. "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 will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring about terrorist bombs; it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor." -Pat Robertson, on "gay days" at Disneyworld

7. "(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." -Pat Robertson

6. "I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that's the way it is, period." -Pat Robertson

5. "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. 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. ...


Hey thanks for those, I did enjoy them very much. Hahaha.

Now back to accepting headship from my man. Or something.

Endive Wombat: It is guys like Pat that totally delegitimize (based off public perception) anyone that identifies with/follows the Christian faith.


Nah. He's just the icing on top. The main thing, I'd have to say, that delegitimizes the christian faith would be the christian faith. Voting to deny other people rights they themselves enjoy, trying to take rights away from women, voting to lower education and science funding, wanting wars with anyone other than christian, ect.

Seriously, Pat Robertson is probably the smallest nail in that coffin.

I'm certain ol' "Leg Press" Robertson can explain how Louisville, which sported a pro-atheism billboard not too long ago, was spared despite being in the direct path of those tornadoes. Was God trolling?
 
2012-03-06 07:50:39 AM
I'm in KY; Louisville. The storm literally fragmented in two and missed the city altogether. The strongest tornadoes landed just 20 miles north of the city. My heart goes out to those affected, but we got incredibly lucky.

CSB - a few days ago, one of my obnoxiously Jesustastic co-workers was thanking the Lord for the unseasonably warm weather. I shiat you not, she called it a "blessing". In my mind, I was thinking "really? You're thanking Jesus because the entire planet is slowly roasting?"

I hope she feels like an asshole. I really, really do.

God didn't know whether to send the tornado to "Looeyville" or Looville".

Pat Robertson is a festering, pus filled carbuncle on the anus of the United States.

As a Louisvillian, I'm thinking God must have been watching "Elizabethtown" and sent the tornado based on the directions Kirsten Dunst gives Orlando Bloom in that plane scene. They got the layout entirely wrong. It was a bit of a controversy here.

The problem with this is that Pat and friends are consistent with the bible. You'd be better off just leaving the whole mess behind if you don't want to get lumped in with him.

I have been blasted before for saying this, but I (and many others) believe that the Bible is a great guide book for living. It is not to be taken literally.


While I would never presume to tell others what they believe I just don't see the point of being Christian if you don't believe in the bible. Do you not believe that Jesus is the son of god? If not then how do you call yourself Christian? Also, "Great guide for living" are you including all of the gay hate, the violence, the rape and plunder that god justifies in the OT?

Many times people claim to have seen Elvis since his 'supposed' death yet so many of us continue as nonbelievers. Pity that we can't all accept it on faith.
 
2012-03-06 08:02:49 AM
Maybe this is just Pat Robertson's way of saying that he does *not* intend to donate any money to the Red Cross to help the victims of the tornadoes.
 
2012-03-06 08:03:53 AM
I believe someone the yesterday said in the Ron Paul thread (which is also about tornadoes) that it was "refreshing that someone from the right side of the aisle didn't invoke God as the cause of disasters".

Well, that didn't take very long at all...

You're only doing it for yourself
and god doesn't want to know about it anyway.

It depends upon the church/denomination. Pat's church has one interpretation. Others have different ones.

That's what happens when you have a holy book written by dozens of different people over thousands of years. There are going to be conflicting messages.

I prefer the interpretations that focus on God's love for everyone and the words of Jesus on the Sermon of the Mount. Pat doesn't. Pat prefers to focus on the Old Testament angry God that destroys cities or countries because they don't worship him. I can't believe in that version of God.

I'm not even going to read this thread, because it's probably going to be at least as ignorant as Pat Robertson...but really people. Crazies are crazies, regardless of which religion (if any) they subscribe to. The crazy is not part of the religion itself.
Ignore the crazy. It is not representative of anything except the fact that he is crazy.

What test can I do to prove your god exists? The physical universe is the universe. There are only 4 things in the universe: space, time, energy, and matter - that's it. Matter and energy do not influence and are not influenced by supernatural forces. There are no supernatural entities or forces acting on nature, because there is no evidence of anything beyond or outside nature. How does your god communication with atoms? There is no evidence of a collection of "spirit particles" and "spirit forces" that interact with our regular atoms.

Quasar: "God doesn't send tornadoes to hurt people," he said. "We call them acts of God, but they're not. All I can say is, why do you build houses in a place where tornadoes are apt to happen?"

Pat Robertson busting out the Carlos Mencia jokes, ladies and gentlemen.


Referring to anything as a Carlos Mencia joke is like linking to some crappy blog post that links to the article people really want to see.

WAT!?

Also it's a bad idea to build homes in tornado pron areas,
hurricane prone,
earthquake prone,
tidal wave prone, etc.

Let's move to the moon. You go first, Pat.

TommyymmoT: A couple of days ago, I saw an interview with a tornado survivor who was telling how her childhood home was blown away during last year's tornadoes.
She had rebuilt since then, and almost as soon as her new house was finished, this year's tornadoes blew that one away too.

When asked whether she would rebuild again, she said "yes, I believe God has a plan for us all".

My first thought? Yeah, He just might, but I'm pretty sure his plans call for a new parking lot.


perhaps she should consider building a castle in a swamp.
