Can you believe this guy? What a nutcase. Do you suppose he has started building his ark yet? I have a hard time believing that god is vengeful. I suppose that is why he blames it on the devil, and that god has simply "lifted his protection." I also have a hard time believing that a book (such as the bible) that was written thousands of years ago by pompous old white men supposedly is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, not to mention that it has been translated, and re-translated over the years to fit each person's liking. Anyone has the right to believe in the bible, in it's entirety, or in the points that they agree with, and they also have the right not to believe in it at all. I hardly think you can list the bible as "fact." I don't suppose we will be seeing this guy on the weather channel anytime soon?

Noted Climatologist Pat Robertson said at a recent Intelligent Design Weather Symposium that he believes that Florida's hurricane problems are due to the devil.
"We have insulted God with legal abortion and restrictions on religion in public places. Then we say 'why does this happen?' Well, why it's happening is that God Almighty is lifting his protection from us. Florida is just seething with Godless Cubans and Satan worshipping Catholic Mexicans. By turning our backs on Jesus, we have let God unleash the Devil down there."
Mr. Robertson was heckled by protesters who were claiming "Global Warming" to be the cause. They were written off by Mr. Robertson as liberals and Satan loving homosexuals off the record.
On the record Mr. Robertson said:
”Their science couldn’t possible be right. Their computer model shows that the Earth is billions of years old and every Christian knows that’s a Commie lie. Look, God only made the universe and the Earth which it revolves around about 6,000 years ago. It is a proven fact, just look in Genesis.”Mr. Robertson is set to release his findings in more detail later this year at the conference for The National Christian Science Foundation.
