50% Chance of Brimstone

10:30 AM -- Step aside, Farmer's Almanac. There's a more highly connected forecaster in town, according to The Virginia Pilot:

    Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson is warning that, according to God, storms and possibly a tidal wave will pound America this year.

    Robertson made the forecasts on "The 700 Club," produced by the Christian Broadcasting Network in Virginia Beach. He founded CBN and hosts the program.

    He said the revelations 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.
Snow also likely in Minnesota. Crackpots in Virginia.

re: 50% Chance of Brimstone Oops I forgot it was Gold Mining in Liberia.
Mea Culpa.

re: 50% Chance of Brimstone He loves Hurricanes, apparently they are God's favored form of punishment. Much more cost effective than the old plagues, besides, do you know how much crap you get from environmentalists for one small plague of frogs? You might as well club baby seals.
Pat tried moving a hurricane back in 2003. I'm sure the roobs thought he pulled it off.

Pat also loves hurricanes because his enterprise/scam Operation Blessing can get some more tax money for doing nothing. I take that back, they did use their plans to move some of Robertsons diamond mining equipment out of hostile areas of Africa. Can you say "blood diamonds?"

I predict that God will have nothing to do with the US and hurricanes since Will and Grace went off the air. "The L Word" doesn't count, God can't get cable and dish reception is lousy.

re: 50% Chance of Brimstone Give Pat a break. He does say some "off" things, but the fact remains his organization Operation Blessing was one of the first organizations on site after Katrina. That org does a lot of good things around the world that you'll never hear about in the mainstream media.

Dig a little and you'll see he's a good man who's done a lot of tangible good in the world.

re: 50% Chance of Brimstone Yes, Pat's deity is always thoroughly pissed off at someone, isn't He? I think this Da Vinci Code movie should merit at least a good-sized hail storm.

re: 50% Chance of Brimstone To say his statements are "off" is an understatement. Calling for the assassination of Hugo Chavez should have gotten his tax-exemption revoked. Robertson is indeed the sucessor of Hofstader's original paranoid style. Still adhering to a early 20th Century California radio preacher style, Robertson sees commies, the devils and homosexuals everywhere, and it's his God-given duty to root them out. And make a few bucks while doing it. He's almost as incendiary and stupid as Father Coughlin, except he uses better code words to decribe his scapegoats.

Pat's got strange bedfellows like Charles Taylor of Liberia, who is one of his directors in his gold mining operation. Isn't Charles Taylor considered a "terrorist" and "dictator" by the US government? Pat felt he was duly elected and wanted the feds to send in US troops to back him.


Rather than read the official propoganda at Operations Blessing's website, why not dig for some real dirt.

http://www.msmagazine.com/sept... and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

At least Robertson is an overt clown, unlike his stealthy nemesis the Dr.(of what) James Dobson.

Enjoy!

re: 50% Chance of Brimstone Disclaimer: Certainly, this must be part of a vast right wing conspiracy from the BBC.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/ent...

"Former US vice-president Al Gore, who is at the Cannes Film Festival, has warned the world is facing a "planetary emergency" due to global warming. "

"Mr Gore said the world faced a stark choice between the end of civilisation and a future for its children. "


Anyone know how to continue a civilization without the future of its children?

I think the South Park guys got it right with the Man-Bear-Pig episode.


You guys on the left are lucky to have Al- he is clearly much more entertaining than Pat.

re: 50% Chance of Brimstone Sheesh,

I go away for a couple weeks and what do I run into but another vast Right Wing conspiracy.

Listen here CLGFR, I'll have you know that Al Gore is a co-creator of Hell Fire and Brimstone!!

If you keep this up he might unleash Tipper on us again.

PT Barnum would indeed be proud of the aforementioned Televangelists. Unfortunately for their unsuspecting flock, the true character of a person some times takes a while to reveal itself.

"Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends, We're so glad you could attend, come inside, come inside..."

re: 50% Chance of Brimstone I bet Al Gore can't "leg-press 2000 pounds" as the Right Rev Looney claims.

re: 50% Chance of Brimstone "I bet Al Gore can't "leg-press 2000 pounds" as the Right Rev Looney claims."

Maybe he can't leg-press it, but the way he was ballooning up after he lost, our pal Al definitely could eat 2000 pounds!

Maybe he could eat Satan or at least orate until Satan destroys himself to avoid the mind numbing.

Just imagine hell as a never ending Al Gore speech.


Clearly, Al is a ton more fun than Pat!
