Pat Robertson says “God told me US go Booooom!”

Well, Robertson didn’t quite say that, but he did want the world to know that God says the US will be attacked in the 2nd half of 2007. I actually heard this on the radio a few days back and forgot to report it. I would like to point out that Robertson has, in the past, made just a few inaccurate predictions, so this prediction should be considered with just a taste or 1,532,150,235 grains of salt.

“I’m not saying necessarily nuclear, the Lord didn’t say nuclear,” Mr Robertson said on his television show The 700 Club. “It’ll be mass killing, possibly millions of people, major cities.

“The evil people will come after this country and there’s a possibility, not a possibility, a definite certainty, that chaos is going to rule.”

. . .

He said God conveyed this message to him during an annual prayer retreat. He said he has received other messages during past retreats.

Oh, and remember what the Bible says about false prophets: “But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded him to say, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, must be put to death.” I’m absolutely not advocating anyone go and kill Robertson (much like lawyer Jack Thompson, I think Robertson does enough to prove himself irrelevant enough that killing him is absolutely unnecessary), but I wonder if Robertson will recommend to his own “flock” that they kill him when yet another prophecy of his turns out false. After all, he’ll just be telling them to do what the Good Book requires.

This story makes me realize yet again that I don’t have a “Stupid” category, and really need to add one. I wonder if the evil will come to this country because the Democrats get us out of Iraq before the end of the year (my prediction – we’ll not be out of Iraq before the end of the year – hell this prediction stuff is easy to nail) and therefore have no American targets to attack there, or if it will come over because of (or in spite of) our occupying Iraq. I predict neither – there will be no evil attacking and killing millions in major cities in the US. Check back next year to see if Robertson is correct or if I am (prediction – I am).
