The Rev. Robertson

Posted in Politics at 11:41 am by antonello

Old Pat’s been up to some fun the last couple of days. First, he said Sharon’s stroke was a sign of God’s displeasure at Israel pulling out of Gaza:

Conservative Christian evangelical broadcaster Pat Robertson on Thursday linked Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s stroke to God’s “enmity against those who ‘divide my land.'”

First time Pat has ever been upset at anyone for pulling out.

Also, Pat is building a biblical heritage center in Israel. And Israel is giving Robertson the land for free. Ah, the marriage between the American fundamentalist Christians and right-wing Israelis! It’s like Pride and Prejudice all over again, except without the witty wordplay and social satire. You remember the part in Pride and Prejudice when Mr Darcy tried to convert Elizabeth to Jesus and said that if she didn’t, she would go to Hell? And when Mr Bingley had a stroke brought on by God because he pulled out of his engagement with Jane? Damn that Jane Austen was so ahead of her time!
