Pat Robertson - God's Weatherman.
I'm back for a brief post while I have my "Slowski" access going. Let's see, Pat Robertson has now shifted his particular brand of religious insanity to matters climatalogical with his new claim that God told him that the American coastline will be struck by storms and maybe even a tsunami this year. AOL News excerpt:
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (May 18) - In another in a series of notable pronouncements, religious broadcaster Pat Robertson says God told him storms and possibly a tsunami will hit America's coastline this year.
Robertson said the revelations about this year's weather came to him during his annual personal prayer retreat in January.
"If I heard the Lord right about 2006, the coasts of America will be lashed by storms," Robertson said May 8. On Wednesday, he added, "There well may be something as bad as a tsunami in the Pacific Northwest."
Robertson has come under intense criticism in recent months for suggesting that American agents should assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine retribution for Israel's pullout from the Gaza Strip.
Why does anybody pay attention to this lunatic? It's not bad enough that he mocks and calls for the elimination of the leaders of nations he chooses to dislike, but now he claims to be able to predict the weather. The surprise here is that he didn't come out and blame these upcoming events on gay marriage.
The funny thing, if this type of thing can be regarded as funny, is that a scenario such as this is supported by the Global Warming model. If the Earth is truly warming, the moisture that evaporates into the atmosphere from the polar ice caps has to go somewhere, and indeed, it has. My neck of the woods just endured 18 inches of rain in eight days. Too bad Al Gore was such a phony bastard...
