Is It Possible for Pat Robertson to FURTHER Embarrass Himself?
Pat Robertson has issued a statement saying Ariel Sharon's massive stroke is God's wrath.
I wonder how God feels about Robertson asserting he knows what constitutes the will of God.
Sounds like wretched hubris to me.
“It is outrageous and shocking, but not surprising, that Pat Robertson once again has suggested that God will punish Israel’s leaders for any decision to give up land to the Palestinians,” said Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the [Anti-Defamation League], which fights anti-Semitism. “His remarks are un-Christian and a perversion of religion. Unlike Robertson, we don’t see God as cruel and vengeful.”
Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said a religious leader “should not be making callous political points while a man is struggling for his life.”
Think what you like of Ariel Sharon -- and I have had ambivalence about his earlier policies and great hope for his Kadima party in its infancy -- but please don't tell me you know what God intends.
