As I’ve noted before, the wingnuts seem to be forever be doing two contradictory things: Telling us that God has “lifted his hand of protection” from America or is on the verge of doing so if we don’t do everything they demand (like punishing gay people more and sending them lots of money). Here’s Pat Robertson saying that it’s about to happen if we don’t pray:
I think that right now God has planted this nation, He has loved it, prospered it, blessed it beyond measure. We have enshrined deviant sex into our constitution, we have enshrined the infanticide of young babies into our constitution, we have ruled consistently that our children can’t pray and read the Bible in their schools, we have limited over and over again our expression of faith in God and God is saying ‘I’m going to take down the wall of protection around this nation’ unless something happens, and that’s why we’ve got to pray.
Is that right, Pat? God is saying that now? Funny, 11 years ago you said it had already happened in your infamous exchange with Jerry Falwell after 9/11.
Maybe God really is Hindu, with all those hands, and he’s only lifted one or two of them before and now he’s getting ready to lift a few more.
