Patty Boy

Well Pat Robertson has done it again!! Once again I have to hide my head in shame because Pat opened his mouth. The latest goes like this…

“Conservative Christian televangelist Pat Robertson told citizens of a Pennsylvania town that they had rejected God by voting their school board out of office for supporting “intelligent design” and warned them Thursday not to be surprised if disaster struck. “And don’t wonder why he hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for his help because he might not be there,” he said.”

Does God really send disasters to destroy places? Or is there another reason (E.g. Natural causes) for things like Katrina and such. There is an interesting conversation on Gil’s blog called Disasters it’s worth checking out. It is an interesting question to think about. I don’t have much else to say except this... If Pat is calling down God’s judgement on a town in Pennsylvania for rejecting intelligent design, then I am going to call down God’s judgement on ALL of North America for gross injustices, oppression, and lives of rampant sin. All of which seem to have a more Biblical backing for God’s wrath than rejecting one theory about how God MIGHT have created the world.

Just a bit of advice for anyone anticipating disaster on a friend or stranger kicking God "in the teeth." The Bible has a whole book devoted to this subject of punishment through disaster--JOB, in the Old Testament. Check it out.
