If Pat Robertson's vision of theological payback comes true, Peyton Manning will be injured this season as retribution for the Denver Broncos getting rid of Tim Tebow.
The televangelist was speaking recently on "The 700 Club," which is apparently still on television. He recited Tebow's accolades from the 2011 season and wondered whether the Broncos were tempting fate by leaving him off their 2012 ark.
"And you just ask yourself," Robertson said, "OK, so Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback, but he's been injured. If that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback. And in my opinion, it would serve them right."

Are there people who care about Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning? Ugh. Who cares? They are both spoiled rich people...although the former is more irritating with his pious bullshit.
Also, I think Pat is getting senile.

Fuck, are we never going to hear the last of Tim Tebow - whoever the fuck he might happen to be?
If you can find half a dozen people outside of North America who've heard of him or Meyton Panning or whatever the fuck his name is, you've done very well.

Wow. God must have so little on his hands if he can ensure a football injury.

WHEN THERE ARE MILLIONS AND SOON TO BE BILLION STARVING GOD CAN ONLY ASS HIMSELF TO CARE ABOUT FOOTBALL
Sweet fucking Krishna.

Because tha'ts what God really cares about. Fuck all those starving babies in Africa, this is what God cares about.

Apparently his god cares about sports more than he cares about dying african children.

I love how these people treat Tibow like he's some sort of God, despite the First Commandment...and there goes my irony meter

Careful Patty boy. You know what they say about idolators in your little book!

God: Too busy with football to save starving children.

But no mention - or concern - for the Bolton Wanderers player Fabrice Muamba
, and what happened to him nearly a fortnight ago. I see.
Even though he is 'deeply religious'; at least as much as this 'Timmy Tea-Bowl' or whatever.
And if your 'God' - if he existed - was so concerned about your precious 'Tea-Bowl' twat, he would have never allowed him to be traded; but then, surely this example of his twisted 'priorities' (compared with, say, the starving in the Third World) proves that your 'God' doesn't exist, Pat, you senile cunt.
Moral: Americentricism. It should be illegal.

I don't think Robertson even genuinely worships God; he's just on his side in the hopes that God will hurt everyone he doesn't like.

This is stupid and you are getting unreasonably angry over sports. Chill the fuck down.
3/30/2012 3:42:33 PM
OH GOOD GRAVY! PAT, IT'S JUST A STUPID GAME!!!!

Ah, feel that Christian love. Wishing physical harm upon those you don't like because they replaced your mediocre golden boy who people only knew about him because of how much a big deal he made about his Christianity and wearing it on his sleeve.
Incidentally, when Tebow 'Tebows' and makes a fuss over his faith, he's violating Matthew 6:5, much like you do every day, Mr. Robertson.

This is so fucking stupid.
Peyton Manning is a quarterback in the NFL, of course he's going to get injured. It's even more likely since he's coming off of an injury already. And when he does smug idiots like Pat Robertson will get a kick out of it.
It's not much of a prediction or in need of god's intervention when it's already likely to happen!
Ugh! I wish I could punch him over the Internet.

It's funny looking back on this and realising since then the Broncos drafted the very underrated Brock Osweiler. If Manning does get injured, Marion could be left looking stupid again.
