I've been waiting for him to explain all the tornadoes in Oklahoma.

"I don't know where they come from, but this is not the way God wants it to be."

Says who?

That bag of squirrel sh*t definitely knows nutty

Certainly not irony.

Probably hypocrisy.

Most likely to keep other con men from horning in on his territory.

It's God's punishment for, um...something...

Violent video games. Yeah, that'll do.

My comment above should have had a dotted line after the first sentence, I was addressing two separate subjects, not implying that the quote was Robertson's take on the tornadoes.

Diogenes: Most likely to keep other con men from horning in on his territory.


Which is exactly what it came off like.

"What? No no, don't listen to that guy, I've got the real scoop here. Send money."

We really need a hyprocrisy tab!!

Unless we just want to keep using Ironic as a substitute.

Can't wait for him to go all Jim and Tammy fay Baker. Honestly it can't happen soon enough, and might not ever, but i can sure hope it does.

"Those people are trying to be dominant," Robertson said on Wednesday. "I've seen this before, where people decide they want to dominate other people, so they do it like, 'I've got a word from God for you.'"


.......Wow.

The fact that he managed to say that with a straight face and without his head exploding says a lot about what a gifted con man he truly is.

Shouldn't most of the people who have ever listened to this person have died off by now?

I  love what is happening to that men. I would never wish dementia on anyone, but he is clearly losing his shiat and actually starting to tell us all what he actually believes. Next thing you know, he'll tell us there is no God.

The true gift is coming to believe your own bullshiat.  The greats might start out as hucksters, but they train so hard to fake belief that it becomes real.

Even if he stopped, people will move onto another con.

Some people want to be scammed.

Well?  He would know, right?

My dad's a jazz musician and always tried to push jazz on me. As a result, I hated jazz as a kid. Shouldn't that teenage rebellious bullshiat apply to something positive as well?

I keep thinking "Pat Robertson is old, soon he will retire never to be heard from again."  Too bad I have been thinking that for 20 years.

Odd, I was pushed into religion and became a jazz musician (well, not a pro). :) No joke. Also, anecdotally I'd say it's a pretty even split. About half the kids would rebel, and the other half would just soak up the derp.

Crow tries to share wisdom, but today's people do not listen.     Thunderbird flies by, and is not celebrated as once Thunderbird was.     Wolf has been driven from Wolf's lands.    Coyote howls alone in the night.

Of course the gods are @#$@ed off.   We don't speak with them anymore, or sing their songs.    Surely they have abandoned us!

Jerry Falwell sure can use a dance partner on that disco floor built in the middle of the Eighth Circle (Bolgia 4) of Hell.

This coming from someone who claimed his prayers have diverted the paths of hurricanes. Robertson probably didn't think of the implications of such a claim: If his prayers prevent disasters from some storms, why not the others? Is he just selective in which areas he targets his prayers? If it's God's will that makes the difference, why does God want to let some people suffer the ravages of a natural disaster? If one were to believe Robertson's claims, then one would also have to accept that either Robertson or God is an asshole.

(Grew up in a household that watched these shows) It may seem impossible to believe that regular viewers of this show would miss the obvious hypocrisy here, but trust me when I say it went right over their heads and never even registered. To them, Pat is a *true* prophet. They actually applaud him for having the courage to call out those *false* doomsday prophets. It's total insane backward logic that could never make sense unless you were in the cult.

Not until the revenue stream drops below the expense level.  And what with his Zambian* diamond mine, that ain't happening until DeBeers get knocked over.

If you could reason with religious people, there would be no religious people.

Religion = Superstition + $$$$$
