Welcome kids! Put on your thinking caps and your Skepti-X goggles! It’s another fun filled episode of ‘Ego Trippers’.
Pat Robertson, US televangelist, founder of numerous organizations and corporations, including the American Center for Law and Justice, Christian Broadcasting Network, the Christian Coalition, Flying Hospital, International Family Entertainment, Operation Blessing International Relief and Development Corporation, Regent University, and host of The 700 Club- has received a message from God.
It has been revealed to the major public voice for conservative Christianity in the United States that America will be attacked in the second half of 2007.
“I’m not saying necessarily nuclear, the Lord didn’t say nuclear,” Mr Robertson said on his television show The 700 Club. “It’ll be mass killing, possibly millions of people, major cities.
“The evil people will come after this country and there’s a possibility, not a possibility, a definite certainty, that chaos is going to rule.”
Mr Robertson told viewers they should not be afraid because “if you get blown up or something, you go to heaven; that’s the worst thing that will happen to you”.
I certainly hope no one gets “blown up or something”- you’d think God would have a slightly more articulate message. It seems to me the ultra-conservative Christians are losing ground and need a little fear-mongering to get people back in line.
Also- In May 2006, Robertson declared that storms and possibly a tsunami would hit America’s coastline sometime in 2006. Robertson supposedly received this revelation from God during an annual personal prayer retreat. He also claimed on his website that he can leg-press 2,000lb, thanks to an energy drink he once promoted.
The televangelist: “I think what God meant to say…”
Bill Hicks: I have never been that confident.
“A fascist state needs to operate in conditions of perpetual fear. Have you ever noticed how the world has been in constant crisis since World War II?”
