I've been waiting to see if anyone would post the ridiculous post-Katrina remarks made by the esteemed climate expert Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

"As Hurricane Katrina dismantles Mississippi’s Gulf Coast, it’s worth recalling the central role that Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour played in derailing the Kyoto Protocol and kiboshing President Bush’s iron-clad campaign promise to regulate CO2.

In 1998, Republican icon Pat Robertson warned that hurricanes were likely to hit communities that offended God. Perhaps it was Barbour’s memo that caused Katrina, at the last moment, to spare New Orleans and save its worst flailings for the Mississippi coast."

I'll admit it, Robertson is a nutter. Now anybody wanna defend Kennedy's suggestion that hurricane Katrina was directed by the hand of Providence as revenge on conservatives?

So if everything is so bad, why is his headquarters at Virginia Beach of all places? There's nothing more laughable than fairweather Christians spending year after year wishing for gloom and doom.

and let's all be sure to note that the gay neighborhoods of NOLA were spared from any flooding.

can we also note that the most devout, religious areas of the country (Deep South, Midwest) seem to get the deadliest weather (hurricanes, tornados).

on an only semi-serious note, could deadly weather inspire increased devotion to religion?

Pat's got serious issues. He needs to keep his mouth shut.

Why? Isn't it better to keep nut jobs talking so you know where they are?

I'm waiting for Pat to say that the New England flooding is God's revenge and wrath upon the blue states 10, 9, 8, 7

Repent New Englanders!

I'll bet he does come out with some off the wall statement about the storms that hit the coast during the hurricane season.

Why is it wrong for Robertson to put his spin on these disasters?


Do any of you ever wonder if some of things you were taught
are not just somebody's spin on a disaster?

I am so thankful for God that I have recently relocated to a "red state"

The day I relocated...I was smacked with $900 of hail damage to my car. ALL THIS ON (gasp): GOOD FRIDAY!

Indeed. Maybe the Bible Belt doesn't realize that God's trying to tell them to shut the fuck up.

Weather does correlate to a culture's religiosity. It isn't a coincidence that colder climates tended to be more secular and industrial, while warmer climates tended to be more agrarian and religious.

You're quite right about that, but maybe the message got lost amongst today's beautiful sunshine, cool breeze and all those singing birds and blooming flowers. But now that I know natural disasters are God's way of sending a message, I'll know what's up when the LESS "religious areas of the country" like the West Coast suffer, say, a high-magnitude earthquake or a catastrophic blizzard rips through New England one of these Winters.

Really guys, didn't this type of thinking go out with tossing virgins into volcanoes?

Well, I'm sitting in probably one of the blandest areas in the country for weather--the union-heavy blue state, Michigan.

I agree. It's a rather asinine idea, but it is one that folks like Pat Robertson seem to use an awful lot. But my point still remains the same; if God really showed his displeasure through the weather, then the Bible Belt certainly has no room to talk. They have probably, on average, the worst weather in the nation.

Perhaps he could get a part-time job at the Home Depot pushing HURRICANE SUPPLIES.........{the END is near}.......buy now before it's too late!!!

BTW....Melon......I learned a good trick today about my so-called trinkets {well I go thru the paint department's RL (as I prefer designer colors)....and pick up their paint chips by name....of course the colors are interesting yet the name must have preference above all else....and Melon the best part is they're for free}.
Yes....trinkets.....but to me......

Getting back to the subject wasn't this the same man who made a comment about some foreign leader a while ago???? {I won't go into details}.

Hey only a few days into 2007. Can he bend spoons too?

VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia (AP) --

Evangelical broadcaster Pat Robertson said Tuesday that God has told him that a terrorist attack on the United States would cause a "mass killing" late in 2007.

"I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear," he said during his news-and-talk television show "The 700 Club" on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

"The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that."

Robertson said God told him about the impending tragedy during a recent prayer retreat.

God also said, he claims, that major cities and possibly millions of people will be affected by the attack, which should take place sometime after September.

Robertson suggested in January 2006 that God punished then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon with a stroke for ceding Israeli-controlled land to the Palestinians.

The broadcaster predicted in January 2004 that President Bush would easily win re-election.

Bush won 51 percent of the vote that fall, beating Democratic Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts.

In 2005, Robertson predicted that Bush would have victory after victory in his second term. He said Social Security reform proposals would be approved and Bush would nominate conservative judges to federal courts.

Lawmakers confirmed Bush's 2005 nominations of John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. But the president's Social Security initiative was stalled.

"I have a relatively good track record," he said. "Sometimes I miss."

In May, Robertson said God told him that storms and possibly a tsunami were to crash into America's coastline in 2006.

Even though the U.S. was not hit with a tsunami, Robertson on Tuesday cited last spring's heavy rains and flooding in New England as partly fulfilling the prediction.
