Guardian Unlimited reports on the latest by Pat Robertson:
Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson urged his nationwide audience Monday to pray for God to remove three justices from the Supreme Court so they could be replaced by conservatives.
“We ask for miracles in regard to the Supreme Court,” Robertson said on the Christian Broadcasting Network’s “The 700 Club.”
Robertson has launched a 21-day “prayer offensive” directed at the Supreme Court in the wake of its 6-3 June vote that decriminalized sodomy. Robertson said in a letter on the CBN Web site that the ruling “has opened the door to homosexual marriage, bigamy, legalized prostitution and even incest.”
The same letter targets three justices in particular: “One justice is 83-years-old, another has cancer and another has a heart condition. Would it not be possible for God to put it in the minds of these three judges that the time has come to retire?”
This guy is such a clown.
One has to wonder about this guy’s view of his god. If it’s one that cares about US politics, then presumably it reads the papers and at least skims the major sites on my blogroll. Given that, it seems likely that God would be aware of the current situation on the Supreme Court and either 1) going to take action because he thinks it’s a good idea, 2) not going to take action because he thinks it’s a good idea, or 3) busy with other stuff. It seems unlikely that God is watching the 700 Club and listening to all these prayers and suddenly saying to himself, You know what? These guys are right! Jesus, I didn’t realize how old that Stevens guy was! I mean, isn’t Pat Robertson’s God omniscient?
Of course, I could be wrong. Maybe God will tend to this after he gets through with the Deion Sanders auto repair situation.
