It's Pat...Again

Once again, Reverend Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network, has been making news and raising eyebrows with his controversial views. We can’t make this stuff up.

1) The Reverend Pat Robertson recently told viewers of “The 700 Club” that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s massive stroke could be God’s:

A) …punishment for giving up Israeli territory.
B) …sign that He wants both the Palestinians and the Jews to put down their weapons and work toward peace.
C) …way of saying He sides with the Palestinians.

2) The good reverend also went on to say that Sharon was “dividing God’s land,” even though the Bible says doing so invites “God's enmity.” Robertson added, “I would say woe to any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course” then noted that former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated. Robertson said God’s message is:

A) “This land belongs to me. You’d better leave it alone.”
B) “You’d better follow the road to peace — or else.”
C) “The end days are nigh!”

Answers:
1) A: Punishment for giving up the Gaza Strip
2) A: “This land belongs to me.” No word yet on when, per Pat’s warnings, God will smite the city of Dover, Pa., for voting out that city’s “Intelligent Design” supporting school board…

I am a member of the "Christian Right" (though I prefer Conservative) but I disagree with Pat Robertson's comments. Many Christian leaders, including faith healers, have experienced serious medical problems. If Sharon's medical problems are God's punishment, what do we say about those Christian leaders?

I really do appreciate an insightful comment like that. If only all of us were as thoughtful about how we profess our faith.
