yeah, my grandmother listens to this quackjob all the time. She’s always up in arms about the “end” being near. And he’s ALWAYS wrong. But he’s got a good escape. “God has decided to spare us, as we have prayed to him to make it so.” I’m totally suprised the commercials for his damn show aren’t selling several different varieties of snake oil.
Ah, yes, people who adhere to tenants of mainstream Christiananity (note that it says “may”, which merely implies a nonzero chance, as specified in the Bible itself) are “willfully ignorant.” I’m glad our freethinking, open-minded, non-discriminitory friend here was able to clear that up.
If you bothered to read the article itself, you would know that the poll used the terms “very likely” and “somewhat likely” which is vastly different from the bible, which says Jesus will come like thief in the night, and no one can foretell his coming. Anyone who says it is likely that Jesus will return next year is not only ignorant, but a lousy Christian as well.
I pride myself on discriminating between ignorance and reason; it is a quality to aspire to.
I don’t get it; to an “evangelist” (as Robertson is supposed to be; a bearer of good news), the destruction of the world is a GOOD thing, because it ushers in the Millenium. So why isn’t this news received positively? Or, maybe, it is the Devil 9tempting us). In any case, why should God make his intentions known to an ass like Robertson? Or maybe god is playing a joke on us?
Pat’s no Nostradamus. Nostradamus had the good sense to write vague, although shitty, poetry. Robertson makes dead-wrong predictions and sells protein shakes. He doesn’t deserve to be mentioned in such lofty company. He’s more akin to The Weekly World News.
