I long ago suggested that given Pat Robertson’s frequent suggestion that this or that bad weather event was God’s punishment on us for (fill in the blank), the 700 Club should have a weather report. “Sodomy is up 13% in the Pacific Northwest; expect floods and locusts.” Bill Maher came up with a similar idea for his show a few years ago and did a sketch on it. Here’s ol’ Pat, at it again, blaming the drought on our sinful ways:
He says we should pray about it. Does he think people aren’t praying for rain? Hell, several governors have declared official days of prayer over it. Churches throughout the hardest hit states are holding prayer rallies over it. Is it just not enough people? How many people have to pray about it, Pat? And what will you say if the Republican convention gets hit by a hurricane this week?
