Either God is REALLY pissed off…or people are totally putting words in His mouth.
I mean, Pat Robertson tells Dover, Pa., residents to expect the wrath of God in Nov. 2005 after they “voted God out” of their city when school board members who favored the teaching of creationism — under the guise of “intelligent design” — in public schools were not re-elected.
“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.”
And then Robertson struck again…or rather God did…when Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon suffered a major stroke Jan. 4 — just weeks after suffering a minor stroke.
“He was dividing God’s land, and I would say, ‘Woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the [European Union], the United Nations or the United States of America,'” Robertson told viewers of his long-running television show, “The 700 Club.”
“God says, ‘This land belongs to me, and you’d better leave it alone,'” he said.
And then there is this from New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event today…
“Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it’s destroyed and put stress on this country,” Nagin, who is black, said as he and other city leaders marked Martin Luther King Day.
“Surely he doesn’t approve of us being in Iraq under false pretenses. But surely he is upset at black America also. We’re not taking care of ourselves.”
Nagin also promised that New Orleans will be a “chocolate” city again. Many of the city’s black neighborhoods were heavily damaged by Katrina.
