Pat's Best Friend, God
God dropped in for a beer with Pat Robertson, and you'll never guess what he said:

In what has become an annual tradition of prognostications, religious broadcaster Pat Robertson said Tuesday God has told him 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.

God also suggested bright yellow will be the new black, and was quite firm that, in the coming year, there will be a number of sales at Target.

(Thanks, Patrick)

They shouldn't be swearing on any religious book. So help me Scooby Doo, and Shaggy, too. (Since there's far more evidence for the existence of Scooby and Shaggy than god.)

They should swear on whatever they hold sacred, but I still think most of them are opportunistic, power mad scum.

Robertson is probably delusional, but he's not in charge of anything. I don't care if he saw the Grinch steal Christmas. He can't hurt me. The Washington DC bunch is a different matter entirely.

I have no doubts that Robertson and many of his followers are hoping that this "prediction" turns out to be true. There is little to lose if hes wrong... but if he's even close to being right, they'll bank on more donations coming his ways, and his waning popularity increasing.
A prediction like this isn't a warning - its banking on murder, and as evil as the possible act itself.

As I mentioned in my email to you, Amy, this was my favorite part of the article:

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.

Now, let's look at this prediction. There's no time given as to when it's supposed to occur, there's no specifics about the storms (could be a tsunami or any type of storm), and we're talking about a geographical area the size the climactic diversity of the United States. Talk about your safe bets!
