Pat Robertson - He Didn't Pray Katrina Away

I am a very visual person so I can't help the comparisons that occur in my mind. This man has always reminded me of one of those flying monkeys that terrorized Dorothy and her pals in 1939's "The Wizard of Oz". Hence, his nickname in our house: "The Evil Monkey-Faced Man".

Last week good ol', down-home, power-hungry, ex-presidential wanna-be preacher, Pat Robertson, called for the assassination of Venezuela's duly elected president, Hugo Chavez. Jesus' self-claimed confidant was on a crusade, it seems, to rid the world of a man who is likely to block American access to Venezuelan oil.

This call for murder was not out of character for the very political "end justifies the means" Christian minister. August 9th, 1999, on The 700 Club television program, the "evil" Robertson made this statement to his viewers, "I know it sounds somewhat Machiavellian and evil, to think that you could send a squad in to take out somebody like Osama bin Laden, or to take out the head of North Korea, but isn't it better to do something like that, to take out Milosevic, to take out Saddam Hussein, rather than to spend several billions of dollars on a war that harms innocent civilians and destroys the infrastructure of a country?" Sound familiar?

The Evil Monkey-faced Man is noted also for his long, well-documented experience with hurricanes. Why, the murderous hypocrite is so close to Jesus and his dad, that he and his 700 Club followers have prayed away many a hurricane. When the saintly Virginian pleads "in the name of Jesus" for God to put up "a wall of protection" along the coast where he lives, one look at his wizened, scrunched-up prayin' face and you know that he means business!

Where, I ask, were God's representative and his "cultish" devotees when Hurricane Katrina hit the gulf coast? After commanding Hurricane Gloria to "stop where you are and move northeast, away from land, and away from harm" in 1985, weakening and stalling Hurricane Felix offshore in 1995, and asking God to turn the storm away from Virginia Beach by demanding that 2003's Hurricane Isabel "go out into the sea and pass land harmlessly", why was the monkey-faced prayermonger derelict in the face of Katrina?

Aside from having to lie his way out of the Hugo Chavez murder muddle, he was distracted and downright obsessed with sodomy and the Supreme Court. Pat Robertson was busy redirecting the attention of his chosen deity from the impending horrific storm to the matter of Supreme Court judges. He has been praying, and praying hard, for God to retire three Supreme Court judges and replace them with conservative Christian judges who would in turn, recriminalize sodomy. No wonder he lacked the strength to pray this, the biggest hurricane ever, away.

Don't despair. Robertson, the monkey-faced evangelical, is back on track. The aftermath of the destructive, catastrophic hurricane has him calling for donations to help the victims of Katrina. What a kind thought. One would hope that he will not repeat the mistakes he made Africa and has learned to give without demanding that recipients of his charity accept Jesus Christ as their savior before they receive any food, water, or financial aid. There is no room for proselytizing when people are in need. I plan to contribute to a more reputable charity organization. People need help.

A miracle however, did occur. Katrina's wind and water forced George W. Bush to cut short his five week vacation.

Great post. Every country has its own Ayatollah, and Pat Robertson is ours (along with James Dobson, Jerry Falwell, etc.).

Our founding fathers must be turning in their graves, seeing these wannabe-Ayatollahs trying to take over our country.

Lots of hedonism in the Big Easy, ain't there? Why they no doubt brought it on themselves, just like those New York hedonists did.

Nobody can dictate to God.

Our ways are not His ways.

Pat Robertson is not God. And nobody can wish disasters away, except God.

ORIKINLA OSINACHI...Pat Robertson wants to be a God but is only a deranged power-hungry fool with many unquestioning followers.
