Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s stroke was divine punishment for “dividing God’s land.”

“God considers this land to be his,” Robertson said on his TV program “The 700 Club.” “You read the Bible and he says ‘This is my land,’ and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, ‘No, this is mine.”

Look I'm no fan of Sharon, but can he quit this crap? I can't wait until he gets very ill; what will his explanation be then? If anyone deserves to be punished by god, it's this clown.

Robertson is a clear example of what religion warns about. A man using the name of god to do the work of satan. If people who followed the bible were serious they would denounce this evil assclown. (and yes, I know some christians here have done just that. Kudos to them)

Robertson is after Letterman's job
Awwww,

Don't be too hard on him, Mini. He's just trying to boost his ratings like any good TV performer.

What I'd really like to see happen is Mel Brooks jump in and make one more smash hit like "Producers". Only it would be called "Evangelists".

* Springtime for Patti and Christendom *
* Smyte Thee and Byte Thee, today... *

Old men don't just get strokes!
Come come, do you have any EVIDENCE that men approaching 80 with extraordinarily stressful jobs are naturally likely to have strokes? NO! Then God did it.

I'm still waiting for Robertson bashers to provide proof that cities built near the Caribbean are naturally susceptable to be affected by Caribbean weather.

Yes, the 700 club is an example of Christianity at its worst...
and Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and almost 100% of the televangelists are about as far from being Christ-like as is possible. They are an embarassment and disgusting, to be pittied and laughed at.

But...

is not much different than what Robertson himself says. I disagree. Should he become ill, I would pray that GOD help heal him, just as I did for Gene Scott, another charlatan and snake-oil salesman.

Creation / Evolution Only
I don't see this as strongly related to the creation vs. evolution debate. This is politics masked as religion. Tangentially related, but only tangentially. And the discussion is not related to EvC.

Moving to the Coffee House.
