why do we keep letting this man speak?

Pat Robertson is at it again:

Evangelical broadcaster Pat Robertson said Tuesday that God has told him that a terrorist attack on the United States would cause a “mass killing” late in 2007.

“I’m not necessarily saying it’s going to be nuclear,” he said during his news-and-talk television show “The 700 Club” on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

“The Lord didn’t say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that.”

Robertson said God told him about the impending tragedy during a recent prayer retreat.

God also said, he claims, that major cities and possibly millions of people will be affected by the attack, which should take place sometime after September.

First of all, who prays for mass murder? I mean, he says that he learned this information on a prayer retreat. Who talks to God and says “God, please tell me that everyone around me is going to die in the most horrific way possible?”

Secondly, if anyone else made a comment that the U.S. was going to experience “mass killings” this year, they would be picked up has possible terrorists. After all, how else would you know about the attack unless you were part of the planning of it?

And C) I would say that Robertson’s prediction has less to do with his communication with a higher being and more to do with his desire to see his fellow citizens go up in flames as punishment for what he feels are crimes against God. He’s hoping that innocent people — who are just trying to do what they think is right in their lives — die horrible deaths because what they are doing offends him and his religion. Yup, that sounds like an Al-Qaeda member to me.
