Pat Robertson Warns Pa. Town of Disaster
This guy is such a trip . . .
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson warned residents of a rural Pennsylvania town Thursday that disaster may strike there because they "voted God out of your city" by ousting school board members who favored teaching intelligent design.
All eight Dover, Pa., school board members up for re-election were defeated Tuesday after trying to introduce "intelligent design" — the belief that the universe is so complex that it must have been created by a higher power — as an alternative to the theory of evolution.
"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," Robertson said on the Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club."
Eight families had sued the district, claiming the policy violates the constitutional separation of church and state. The federal trial concluded days before Tuesday's election, but no ruling has been issued.
Later Thursday, Robertson issued a statement saying he was simply trying to point out that "our spiritual actions have consequences."
"God is tolerant and loving, but we can't keep sticking our finger in his eye forever," Robertson said. "If they have future problems in Dover, I recommend they call on Charles Darwin. Maybe he can help them."
Robertson made headlines this summer when he called on his daily show for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
In October 2003, he suggested that the State Department be blown up with a nuclear device. He has also said that feminism encourages women to "kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."

Yeah, I told you about him before in another thread. He is the one who prayed for vacancies in the supreme court on TV, and called for an assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Total nut job.

good Old Pat runs the 700 club which is a HUGE God "like" ministry. I think like many these people start of with good intentions but then get to full of themselves and think they are on the level of God and then they are living for the fame and attention.
Pat has been saying some horrible things and things that are hurting the Christian faith because unbelievers look at nut-jobs and think that we all are the same (which is not true) and don't want anything to do with it.. I do not blame people either that is why I think the soft sell is better than smacking people with a bible in order to save them is how it is done.
For a laugh I watch Pat on TV some days just to see what stupid things he will say.. Live on TV he will say God spoke to me during the commercial and he said XXXXXXXX so I need to pray for a person out there that is having trouble with XXXXXXXX and God said XXXXXX. Come on, Yes God does speak to us if we listen but it is funny how He always waits until a commercial with Pat to cut in.

He really didnt warn them of a distaster. He just said if something happens dont expect GOD to be there.
