Pat Robertson thinks he can command the hurricane to change direction.

 

Because -- Jesus.

I'd love to see him stand on the beach and personally save Virginia and the Carolinas. 
 

He's conned hundreds of thousands out of millions in his career as a snake venom salesman. I'm sure he'll die with a big smile on his face, fine with me, as long as he dies.

I have this vision of him declaring that this particular storm is way

too big for him to handle - and his family rushing in to get him back

back on track. "Listen old man, we've had enough of your negativity.

Now get out there and pretend to stop the storm --- it's how we make

our money for Christ's sake!"


Believe nothing you hear and only half what you see.

I didn't think that Pat Robertson could possibly get any crazier.  I thought there must be some bottom limit.  Clearly, I was mistaken.  He is getting more crazy.

 

Watching him stand on the actual beach, trying to command the storm, would be hilarious.

Pat Robertson thinks that Ken Ham is crazy. He thinks Ham takes the Buybull too literally. (And he’s not wrong.)

 

On the other hand, Ken Ham had the good sense to build his boat in Kentucky, where it would never have to prove its seaworthiness.

It would be wonderful, to watch the Ken Ham Ark destroyed by a hurricane.

 I can't take much more of this stupidity. How fucking clueless and gullible are people ?  Every once in awhile when I turn on the TV, it will be on some channel that has religious programs and I can't even take 2 seconds of those idiots and then to think millions of other idiots listen to this shit AND believe it.

 

I want to move to another planet please.


When my people come to colonize this planet, your names will be on the protected rolls, and you will come to no harm.

I have a subscription to Patheos Pagan.  In fairness to Pat Robertson, there is an Indiana group of witches, who are casting their own anti-hurricane magic.  

 

Holy crap.  What next?

Just because witches tend to be less malicious than Christian fundamentalists doesn’t mean they are more rational.

P.S. I used to wonder how on earth Wiccans and other pagans could believe in their magic spells. Now, as an ex-Christian skeptic, I understand: I used to believe in magic spells myself. Only, I called them “miracles” instead of “magic.”

To my linguistic understanding, the word spell is a modification of spiel -- to talk.  As in prayer.  By basic definition, prayer is an attempt to persuade a supernatural entity, to do what the caster wants.  That's magic.

 

Like controlling the weather.

Like turning a cracker into flesh and blood.

Like medical intervention.

Like help with an academic examination.

Like controlling the outcome of a sporting event.

Like help with a sale.

Like supernatural help finding a parking spot -- or keys.

Like victory for their candidate at election time.

Like victory in war.

Like a favorable court verdict.

 

What else do people pray for?  It's all magic.
