Marion Strikes Yet Again

Marion ‘Pat’ Robertson announced his usual ‘death and destruction comes this way’ prediction for 2007. A terrible terrorist tragedy to come! God said so!

From YahooNews:

In what has become an annual tradition of prognostications, religious broadcaster Pat Robertson said Tuesday God has told him that a terrorist attack on the United States would result in “mass killing” late in 2007.

“I’m not necessarily saying it’s going to be nuclear,” he said during his news-and-talk television show “The 700 Club” on the Christian Broadcasting Network. “The Lord didn’t say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that.”

Robertson said God told him during a recent prayer retreat that major cities and possibly millions of people will be affected by the attack, which should take place sometime after September. 

I don’t know if it’s his God or Dick Cheney buzzing in his ear, but would someone please  take the microphone away? Just lead him off the stage and into one of those little prisons for old people, because it’s fairly obvious to anyone – anyone with two working brain cells, that is – that this guy is wandering the deserts of the mind.

He also said that he was ‘partly right’ on his tsunami prediction last year. Really. That’s what all the rain and flooding in the Northeast was.  Honest. He said so:

In May, Robertson said God told him that storms and possibly a tsunami were to crash into America’s coastline in 2006. Even though the U.S. was not hit with a tsunami, Robertson on Tuesday cited last spring’s heavy rains and flooding in New England as partly fulfilling the prediction.

Rain….tsunami…rain….tsunami….riiiggghhhtt.

Other than both being composed of water, what exactly do they have in common?

  1. If someone proclaims “Thus saith the Lord” and that which they proclaim doesn’t come to pass, then it wasn’t a “thus saith the Lord” it was a “thus saith (fill in the blank) I didn’t hear it first hand, but there was a report about a tv evangelist who, prior to the Iraq war, declared that “The US will be victorious and will not suffer a single casualty.” Well, that was definately not a “Thus saith the Lord” either. In my posts, I talk a lot about the end times as I believe that we’re in the final days of this age. There’s a temptation to go for the sensational and not look at things accurately. Like every generation before us, we often ask “How long O Lord; and when shall these things be?” We need to simply abide in Christ and know that he’s in control. As Psalm 46:10 states “Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” Thanks for your observations.

  2. Timbob: I agree with you on the ‘Thus saith’ part.

    I don’t believe we’re in the end times, and – sorry – but I don’t ‘abide in Christ’ as you put it. Not that I hate Christians or anything. Just those who claim to be followers of Christ while ignoring his teachings. Same goes for those of any faith. [(*sigh* I say this a lot, don’t I?.)]

    Your site was interesting. Not something I’d seek out, normally, but still interesting. The one problem I have with a lot of Rapturists is that they’re all so busy looking for the ‘signs and prophecies’ that they don’t do anything for humanity during the here-and-now. I don’t remember Christ saying, “Keep watching the skies while ignoring the real needs around you.”
