Will Someone PLEASE Tell Pat Robertson to Zip It?

I’m sure Pat Robertson is a believer, but in the last few years, he’s made a cottage industry out of saying stupid, embarrassing things that make him, and sometimes believers in Christ, look ridiculous. This time, he has really outdone himself.

Pat, please, for the love of all that’s good, go enjoy your retirement somewhere, but whatever you do, please, stop talking!

    Oh…my gosh, do you think maybe he’s a descendant of one of Job’s friends?

    An act of nature occurs and right away he’s figured out what those people did to bring it on themselves. I do believe God is in control and has His reasons for the things He does and allows, but I do not believe Pat knows what those reasons are.

    Some of his statements are just laughable, we can only hope people realize we don’t all agree with his statements, but sadly some will lump us all together in the same pot of Crazy Christian Soup.

    Is this his spokesperson backpedalling a bit?

    If he backpedalled any harder he’d do a back flip. The explanation doesn’t seem to have made the controversy go away; the blogs will have a field day with it, until something more interesting comes along.

    Chris stated that Pat didn’t “say” the earthquake was God’s wrath, but he certainly implied it. The thing is, making a pact with the devil is a bad thing, we all know that, and the practice of voodoo is not pleasing to God either, that goes without saying; but wouldn’t it be better to see this disaster as giving the Haitians an opportunity to cry out to God (hopefully not to whoever they usually pray to!)?
