Pat Robertson: God told me who will win ‘08 election


"Each year, Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson 'goes off alone with the Lord and then comes back to share with us what the Lord has shown him about the coming year.' This year, according to Robertson, God told him what will happen in the ‘08 election:

"On Wednesday, Robertson, 77, implied that God informed him who will be elected president in November.

“ 'He told me some things about the election, but I’m not going to say, because some old man on 60 Minutes would make fun of me, so I’m not going to tell you who the winner’s going to be,' Robertson said, in apparent reference to CBS humorist Andy Rooney, who turns 89 on Jan. 14.

"In 2004, Robertson claimed that the Lord told him it would 'be like a blowout' re-election for President Bush. Bush, however, received just 51 percent of the vote that November. In 2006, he incorrectly predicted that'“the outcome of the war and the success of the economy will leave the Republicans in charge.'

"UPDATE: Robertson also said that this year, God told him China will become a Christian nation: 'God’s going to give us China. And China will be the largest Christian nation on the face of the earth. They’re going to come to Jesus.'

What was that Pat? God told you that? I thought that was a secret...

I don't think it's very nice of him not to share who wins.  And, this going off with the Lord...I'm not sure I approve of this relationship.

Here's all of Robertson's predictions: http://hamptonroads.com/2008/01/pat-robertson-predicts-violence,-recession-2008

Gee, all these economic predictions.  I wonder if Paul Krugman heard from God, too, since he's been writing the same thing for the last year or so.

I'm waiting for god to tell him when he'll strike Pat with a bolt of lightening.

I think this topic more properly belongs in the SciFi, or maybe the Fantasy forum!  Gotta luv those fundies, they make life interesting.

Does anyone else hear some little kid singing "I know something I won't tell." ?

LOL Lester!

I have sincere doubts that if God wanted to talk to someone on Earth that it would be Pat Robertson.
