Crazy Pat strikes again.
It was once said that prayer is talking to God and crazy is God talking to you. Pat Robertson, by that definition is crazy. Actually I tend to think that talking to non-existent beings is pretty crazy as well.
Now at his age one might accuse Pat of being senile. The problem with this was that he was this crazy years ago. Associated Press reports that Pat announced that God spoke to him. Allegedly this deity informed Pat that storms would hit the US coast and possibly a tsunami. That is a pretty safe prophecy if you ask me. Try and find a year when "storms" didn't hit the US coastline. Hurricanes are born at sea and hit land. That is what they do.
And what is this about "possibly a tsunami"?
Wasn't the creator of the universe sure? Is someone else in charge of a tsunami and they just didn't report in yet on whether it is or isn't scheduled. Of course it is unlikely that one will hit but possible. If it hits Pat will crow that he prophecized it was coming. If it doesn't materialize he will say that he only said it was possible not a sure thing.
Rev. Looney said: "If I heard the Lord right about 2006, the coasts of American will be lashed by storms." Hmm? What is this line "If I heard the Lord right...."
Was God whispering? Why wouldn't you have heard him right if he was having a chat with you, Pat? Was this a phone call and you had a bad line? Does this god have an accent that makes it hard to understand him? Or is it that in your old age you are getting a little hard of hearing --- hey, while chatting with the Big One why didn't you ask him to clear up your hearing.
Actually it seems the Big Guy is getting a bit long in the tooth. He doesn't have the vim and vigor he used to have. Now he talks to Pat Robertson, and apparently not too clearly. Hell, with Moses he had commandments. With Pat it seems like ambiguous suggestions. Moses got a burning bush. Pat got a connection where he wasn't exactly sure what was being said. Couldn't old Jehovah at least have given Pat a stone tablet with his weather report on it? God is getting feeble.
Excuse me for a moment: Yes, God, I'm listening. Speak up if you could. Sorry, what was that again? Oh, Blessed are the Cheesemakers.
The more I hear from Pat Robertson the more I think of Monty Python.
