Pat Robertson's Visions for 2008

As he does every year, Pat Robertson takes a spiritual retreat to listen for predictions from God about the future year. This past Wednesday, Robertson released his expectations that 2008 will be
a year of violence worldwide and a recession in the United States, followed by a major stock-market crash by 2010.
Last year, Robertson predicted that 2007 would be marked by a massive terrorist attack, possibly involving a nuclear weapon, resulting in mass killing in the U.S.

Wow, such violent visions! Perhaps this helps explain Robertson's unexpected endorsement of Rudy Giuliani for the Republican presidential nomination because he feels the New York mayor will best protect the U.S. against the threat of radical Islamic terrorism--in spite of the mayor's pro-abortion, pro-gun control, and pro-gay rights stances, positions diametrically opposed to Robertson's religious right organization.

Weird.

you're a good blogger. I like your topics!

Out of all the religious right folk, Robertson is the one I juts really don't like. He's vial to me. He's a false prophet. He's not consistant. Ugh. Why does he still have a TV show???
