Prognosticating Pat

"Reverend" Pat Robertson passed along another stupid message from god during yesterday's broadcast of his "news" & talk program The 700 Club.

According to the elderly bigot and evangelical loose cannon, god warned him of a terrorist attack that will allegedly hit the U.S. in late 2007, resulting in "mass killing". He hedged a bit on exactly what form this attack would take: "I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear. The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that." No word on whether it will be an even more frightening nookyuhler attack.

Most surprising, Robertson did not specify which gay, lesbian, abortionist, feminist, liberal, pro-immigrant, anti-Christmas outrage has so garnered the wrath of god. I mean, what's the point if he's not going to stick it to the weirdoes and preverts, right? He did mention something about how we're not really friends with Israel, though. And we all know that no one has the best interests of Israel in mind like an apocalyptic preacher who believes that Jews must populate the entirety of biblical Israel before Jesus can usher in the End Times and kill all the unbelievers, including, you guessed it, the Jews! Huzzah!

Here's the bottom line: I refuse to believe in the goodness or wisdom (or, heck, marginal intelligence) of a god who uses a guy like Pat Robertson as his emergency broadcast system. Who wants to worship that monstrosity?
