Heavens Gate or Senile Dementia Now

Heavens Gate or Senile Dementia Now

Back in November when Pat Robertson condemned the good people of Dover, PA, to God's Wrath simply for choosing different school board members in an election, I saw this photo of Pat, and the look on his face reminded me of Marshall Applewhite, him of Heavens Gate fame, who is presumably on the Hale-Bopp comet, by now on the edges of the solar system.

Well, Pat is getting really out there. As noted many places,among which the New York Times:"
The Protestant broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine punishment for "dividing God's land."

"God considers this land to be his," Mr. Robertson said on "The 700 Club," his television program. "You read the Bible and he says, 'This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, 'No, this is mine.' "

But he also said that in the Bible, the prophet Joel "makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who 'divide my land.' "
Mr. Sharon "was dividing God's land, and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease" the European Union, the United Nations or the United States, Mr. Robertson said.

Well, it looks like Pat has become Gods personal spokesman.
As Yahoo News noted: "
Pat Robertson Imagines God as a Petty, Clownish Thug".

What Pat failed to take note of was that Israel was pretty much carved up right after the 1947 war. Ariel Sharon had very little to do with that.
Subsequent wars have seen subsequent shifts in boundaries.

I mean, just this part of Robertsons reasoning doesn't bear up to any fair analysis. Me thinks, and a lot of other Americans already think, that in Robertsons case we are beginning to see senile Dementia setting in.
Wonder what Pat will say if a new comet shows up. Strange days indeed, as John Lennon once sang.
