Confimed: Pat Robertson Still Nuts

[quote] Robertson's prediction
Â*Â*Â*Â*Â*In a January broadcast of "The 700 Club" that has received scant attention, the Rev. Pat Robertson said that because America has not repented and turned away from sin since the September 11 terror attacks, more are on the way  and that San Francisco and Detroit are likely targets.
Â*Â*Â*Â*Â* The Virginia-based religious broadcaster cited several biblical passages that suggested heavenly punishment and destruction would fall on people who turned away from God, United Press International reports.
Â*Â*Â*Â*Â* "People think their lives have changed," Mr. Robertson said. "The truth is people are right back where they were before. And although there's a small remnant who are really praying and seeking God and turning from sin, there hasn't been a sense of national repentance. We just haven't had that. We had a day of reconciliation, whatever that means, but we didn't have a day of repentance."
Â*Â*Â*Â*Â* He also said: "Take this for what it's worth and no more than that. But I do believe that San Francisco is going to be a target and I think that Detroit is going to be a target."
Â*Â*Â*Â*Â* He did not give a reason for citing those two cities but added, "I think something through ship" would be the way terrorists attack.
Â*Â*Â*Â*Â* Shortly after identifying the cities he believed to be at risk, Mr. Robertson told "700 Club" viewers that "certain perversions  sexual perversions for an example  are being touted as a privileged activity and those who oppose it are being called evil."
Â*Â*Â*Â*Â* Mr. Robertson also accused abortion-rights advocates of having "reversed the equation" by making those who oppose abortion seem "bad."
Â*Â*Â*Â*Â* Mr. Robertson was criticized following the September 11 terror attacks for his apparent endorsement of remarks on the "700 Club" by the Rev. Jerry Falwell blaming homosexuals, abortion-rights advocates and feminists, among others, for having brought on the strikes that caused more than 3,000 deaths.
Â*Â*Â*Â*Â* Mr. Falwell later apologized and Mr. Robertson said he had not understood what Mr. Falwell had actually said.

The only thing this topic's title is missing is "confirmed!"


I'm always up for a good "ultra-conservative boob says something stupid" story, though, and this is a good one.

San Francisco is a very cool town. Detroit has probably suffered enough as it is.

That's not what I hear. I have a friend that just move back to Chicago from San Fran because it was so lame there. He's even gay :eek:

San Franscisco can be very nice . . .and it can also be lame. . . .there is so much stress on enjoyment and the 'good' life, and people are all so healthy and beautiful. There is too much love of trendy youth culture so that no real cultural depth seems to take place. . .and people get chewed up and spit out if they are into living on any sort of edge.


but Detroit??????? <img src="confused.gif" border="0">
