God to Robertson: Shut It!

Pat Robertson likes to talk to God, but he has a selective-listening problem. Apparently he can't hear the Lord telling him to shut the hell up.

Robertson is back in the news again, this time for predicting, predictably, massive destruction for America in 2006.
"If I heard the Lord right about 2006, the coasts of America will be lashed by storms," Robertson said May 8. Wednesday, he added, "there well may be something as bad as a tsunami in the Pacific Northwest."
Hmm, the coasts of America will be lashed with storms. A bold prediction, considering the fact that they are lashed with storms every frickin year. The tsunami claim is a little more risky. I don't think folks in Washington or Oregon should be heading for higher ground quite yet.

It's interesting to note that Pat couches his prediction with the "if I heard the Lord right" caveat. That is undoubtedly because he has heard the Lord dead wrong so many times in the past. Here's a little sampling of press releases and statements available on Pat Robertson's website:
  • Robertson Sorry for Stroke Comment
  • Robertson Apologizes to Omri Sharon
  • Israeli Envoy Accepts Robertson's Apology
  • Robertson Spokesperson Addresses Comments Made by Pat Robertson Regarding Ariel Sharon
  • Pat Robertson Clarifies His Statement Regarding Hugo Chavez
  • Pat Robertson Sets the Record Straight on Stephanopoulos Interview
  • State Department Comments Clarified
  • Liberia: A Clarification
Not a very good track record when it comes to speaking God's truth. Who to blame for the miscommunication? Ten bucks says Pat goes for the homosexuals.
