Pat Robertson: Ceasefire sucks
Just two weeks ago Pat Robertson alarmed me greatly when he declared himself a believer in global warming.
But I’m relieved to report that he’s back to normal:
Pat Robertson laments Mideast cease-fire
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. The Reverend Pat Robertson, who prayed for victory last week with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, contends that the cease-fire with Hezbollah has rendered the entire bloody conflict pointless.
Back from Israel to resume hosting his “700 Club” broadcast, Robertson quoted a Bible passage from the prophet Isaiah: “We were with child. We writhed in pain, but we gave birth to wind.”
“In other words,” he said, “nothing came out of this at all. ‘We writhed in pain,’ but nothing was born from it.”
Suggesting that the invasion of Lebanon failed to achieve its objective, Robertson said, “Israel went in, but what have they done? Is the word of Isaiah true? — ‘We writhed in pain but we gave birth to wind’ — I’m afraid so.”
