Robertson on “intelligent design”
WASHINGTON - Conservative Christian televangelist Pat Robertson told citizens of a Pennsylvania town that they had rejected God by voting their school board out of office for supporting “intelligent design” and warned them Thursday not to be surprised if disaster struck.
… “I’d like to say to the good citizens of Dover: if there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God, you just rejected him from your city,” Robertson said on his daily television show broadcast from Virginia, “The 700 Club.”
“And don’t wonder why he hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for his help because he might not be there,” he said.
Seasoned readers may recall that in 1998 Robertson warned the city of Orlando to expect hurricanes, earthquakes and terrorist attacks because it allowed rainbow flags to be displayed in support of sexual diversity. More recently, of course, he called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
