In what has become an annual tradition of prognostications, religious broadcaster Pat Robertson predicted Tuesday 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.

Robertson said God also told him that the U.S. only feigns friendship with
Israel and that U.S. policies are pushing Israel toward "national suicide."

Robertson suggested in January 2006 that God punished then-Israeli Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon with a stroke for ceding Israeli-controlled land to the Palestinians.

The broadcaster predicted in January 2004 that
President Bush would easily win re-election. Bush won 51 percent of the vote that fall, beating Democratic Sen.
John Kerry of Massachusetts. He also predicted Bush's victory for a second term in 2005.

"I have a relatively good track record," he said. "Sometimes I miss."

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.

That's funny, JL.

By the way, I only passed this article along. It was on a Yahoo news site:

Robertson knows full well that the settlers were removed from Gaza by "the now desperate not to die and meet Arafat in hell" Sharon so that Israel could a) bomb the power station b) shut off food supply c) stop the money flow into the area. d) continually bombard the entire area by air

This would have been hard to do with so many settlers in the Gaza strip.

Roberston reveals himself as one of the true enemies of Western Civilisation who is pushing for war and more war.

Ariel Sharon to Shimon Perez (October 3 2001) "don't worry about American pressure on Israel, we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it.

"the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it."

Really? How many Americans know that? I always thought Jesus Christ was in control. Oh that's right, He was Judean wasn't He? It sure is good He wasn't a Judaist i.e. practicing Judaism. So then, does the word "Jewish/Jew" mean Judean, or does it mean Judaist?

There's some more below.

"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 added.

Robertson told viewers they should not be afraid because "if you get blown up or something, you go to heaven, that's the worst thing that will happen to you."

Pat Robertson, who is my age, should retire from the world stage and confine himself to 2,000 pound leg presses and the shooting off of his mouth on the Net. He suffers from foot in mouth disease, which apparently is incurable in his case but works slowly. In all seriousness, his dogmatic adherence to an idiotarian theology, joined with the media's pleasure in quoting him when he says something stupid, which is often, is doing Christianity considerable harm. His operation has done quite a bit of good in the past, and he did a lot to support the development of Jay Sekulow's operation, which I continue to support, though more modestly than before after reading about Jay's lifestyle. I confess to having watched Roberson's 700 Club newsbroadcasts up until about three years ago, but gave up when I concluded he was not going to retire.

On another front, however, I call attention of visitors to this site to an article appearing at today by Mark D. Tooley, a guy who is trying to save the Methodist Church from itself and frequently writes about the religious left. His subject today is Brian McLaren, and the news ain't good. Emergent may have some good points, and I do believe in dialog, but if Tooley is accurate in this piece, there ain't no way that I could work with anyone who thinks like McLaren apparently does.

Very interesting article on McLaren. I disagree with McLaren on death penalty, however I am telling you from personal experience, I had the same feelings when Ceausescu was executed on national TV in Romania, in 1989. I was very much excited about seeing a thug dead yet after the execution, I felt empty, upset and even guilty. It was a very traumatic thing; I guess it's due to my young age at the time, but it was not a good experience.

We'll try to post that article here on PP later on today. Thanks for recommending it.
