Quote# 33149

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson predicted Wednesday that 2008 will be a year of violence worldwide and a recession in the United States, followed by a major stock-market crash by 2010.

Sharing what he believes God has told him about the year ahead is an annual tradition for Robertson.

On Wednesday's "700 Club" broadcast, the founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network predicted that evangelism will increase and more people will seek God as the chaos develops. Robertson said, "We will see the presence of angels and we will see an intensification of miracles around the world."

Last year, Robertson predicted that a terrorist act, possibly involving a nuclear weapon, would result in mass killing in the United States. Noting that it hadn't come to pass, Robertson said, "All I can think is that somehow the people of God prayed and God in his mercy spared us."

"All I can think is that somehow the people of God prayed and God in his mercy spared us."

What an arbitrary God. He's prepared to let hundreds of thousands die unless they beg him on their knees in prayer. Some loving father!

Is there anybody at all who would seriously be swayed by these kinds of arguments?

If every single year this guy carries on making apocaliptic predictions...........well, some year will be right, don't you think?

Evangelism may increase, but I think all the stupid ones have already been hooked, so the success rate will drop.

What, pat's not raking in enough extortion money already?

My prediction is X, god told me so.

When X doesnot happen god changed his mind.

Therefore I am always right.

In Pat Robertson's world, God only was active during the Bronze Age. Now, in our modern godless society, apparently there are people praying to spare the wrath of God. I'm a Christian and I send you a memo:
You fail miserably and now you're trying to cover up.

All I can think of is he's a lying fundie and anyone who still believes him is a gullible idiot.

If he really believes that his god created the entire universe and oversees everything in it, what kind of narcissistic prick is he to think that this great being has nothing better to do than talk to him? He thinks he IS god!

Take Maddox's pedophile test (http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=spot_the_pedo) and tell me that good ol' Pat doesn't fit the description!

You know what people did to false prophets Pat? They were stoned.

This kind of tripe belongs on Fox News.
Did any of the real news networks carry this item?
My quick research on Google News only linked to the Fox item and a smattering of Bible-Belt newspaper sites.

False Prophet? But will it improve the Real Profit?

My how convenient.

Lying, conning, conniving, malicious, obnoxious shit bag.

Even other Fundies think he is a turd.

Now, someone who wasn't stark-raving batshit would've kept his mouth shut after his crazy prediction was proven wrong.

Not Pat. He just keeps pullin' 'em out of his ass and the fundtards believe it.

1/3/2008 4:25:05 PM



I think it's like a chain effect. He makes a prediction, he fails and next year he has to make another prediction, after sprouting an excuse. That's the way it works.

Dude if god were going to kill hundreds of thousands of people but then let them live if mabe 1/100000th of them prayed to him not to do it, then no-one would die of war plague, or any other cause except old age. Also he's a freakin CONMAN.

Hey Pat, you're in my 2008 Dead Pool!

So please DIAF. Or just die. Whatever, as long as I get the points.

Considering the trends began seven years ago, Robertson just made predictions along the line of "Tomorrow morning the sun will rise."

"We will see the presence of angels and we will see an intensification of miracles around the world."

Why? Never happened before (even in the 1930s), why should these occur now? And how are imaginary beings supposed to help?

So God was threatening us with a terrorist attack but since we caved to his demands he's called it off ??? Wow, God is Osama Bin Laden !!

{ "We will see the presence of angels }

Oh good. At long last proof of their existence. Will we also get to see some of those human/angel hybrids?

(gemsabarmy- what kind of narcissistic prick is he to think that this great being has nothing better to do than talk to him? He thinks he IS god! )

Maybe he thinks he's George Bush --

God can do anything he wants, including changing his mind.
Wait a minute -- changing... - hey, maybe god IS a woman!
Mean, wretched, spiteful, straight razor totin' woman

The problem is not only the one who lies.
It's the shitheels that BELIEVE the lie.

Check out how many people tune into his broadcast.

All I can think is that somehow

Hang on a smegging minute... Don't these "predictions" come direct from God? So how come God didn't *tell you* why your predictions from last year didn't come true? And why didn't God tell you last year "oh and X would have been going to happen but I will, in My mercy, spare you b/c there will be some many prayers -- so, in fact, forget all about X happening: it won't"?

1/3/2008 5:38:18 PM

stronger now

Yeah. Right. And god told me that he will send a monster to eat your head in one minute, unless he changes his mind because I asked him to change his mind.


(one minute later)

There! Ain't you glad I got him to change his mind!?!

Now give me some money for being so nice to you.
