Pat Robertson: Tilting At Satan's Windmills?

In my own way, I’m kind of a Pat Robertson addict: for a nationally broadcast commentator, especially one with such a remarkable career, he’s completely off the wall. O’Reilly and Limbaugh and others of the right have their moments of stupidity, but none of them come off as utterly looney as Robertson. Maybe what he does he talk of the things they only dream about.

Pat Robertson is sort of a Man of La Mancha of the Christian Right.

Robertson says God told him tsunami may hit Pacific Northwest

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — In another in a series of notable pronouncements, religious broadcaster Pat Robertson says God told him storms and possibly a tsunami will hit America's coastline this year.

Robertson has made the predictions at least four times in the past two weeks on his news-and-talk television show "The 700 Club" on the Christian Broadcasting Network, which he founded.

Robertson said the revelations about this year's weather came to him during his annual personal prayer retreat in January.

"If I heard the Lord right about 2006, the coasts of America will be lashed by storms," Robertson said May 8. On Wednesday, he added, "There well may be something as bad as a tsunami in the Pacific Northwest."

Robertson has come under intense criticism in recent months for suggesting that American agents should assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine retribution for Israel's pullout from the Gaza Strip.
