Reverend Pat Robertson Off His Meds Or Off His Rocker
Reverend Pat Robertson has a penchant for predictions. Some of his predictions are similar to what you see in the checkout counter rags (National Enquirer and others like it). The sensational headlines in the National Enquirer are there to sell more copies and make money; the reverend's predictions are to draw attention to himself ....and make his disciples contribute more in the hope of saving themselves. Don't know if those who write in the checkout counter rags make any claims about getting messages from God but the reverend does.
Interesting that God didn't tell him exactly where and when it would take place. The almighty is certainly aware of the details. So, he told the reverend only half.....maybe a quarter of what he knows. Odd isn't it. There could be an explanation -- that the reverend made the whole thing up. His photographs give the impression that he is not too far from being a candidate for looney bin. Just think, this man campaigned for the Republican party's nomination in the 1988 presidential election!
Also odd that President Bush didn't hear from God. He reportedly received God's guidance in going to war against Iraq. One would think that he would be warned about the attack and get Homeland Security on a red alert. It might pay some political dividend too. He needs it. Perhaps God will speak to him tomorrow or he has already heard from God and keeping it up his sleeve.

"God would tell me, 'George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan.' And I did, and then God would tell me, 'George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq ...' And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, 'Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East.' And by God I'm gonna do it," Shaath quotes the president as saying in the three-part series.
The worst vice of the fanatic is his sincerity.
