God spoke to me last night. He said that we could get a damaging hail storm in Texas sometime this year. He also told me that there could be a blizzard in Minnesota next winter.
What has happened to Pat Robertson? He has now predicted several times in recent weeks that God told him that storms would hit the coast of America this year. Wow! It takes a word from God to predict that? Last night I heard a meteorologist predicting that this hurricane season, we will have 12 named storms -- with 5 of them being category 3 or higher. He also gave the statistical likelihood of a major storm hitting the east coast or gulf coast.
Of course, Pat also said there could be a tsunami hit the Pacific Northwest. I wonder if he would have even known what a tsunami was 3 or 4 years ago?
I'm sorry for being so cynical, but Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell and others have become an embarrassment to the Christian cause in many ways. They more often than not come across as buffoons, getting their moment of publicity -- and leaving the rest of us to clean up the mess.
While I agree to a large degree with the "Moral Majority" positions on abortion and homosexuality -- their obsession with these two issues (as well as the state of Israel and public education) has caused them to lose credibility with the American public. Where are their positions on empowering the poor, race relations, etc. Aren't those moral issues, too?
I feel better.
