The Reverend Pat Robertson says Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's massive stroke could be God's punishment for giving up Israeli territory.UPDATED: Breitbart has a better summary of the comments here.
The founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network told viewers of "The 700 Club" that Sharon was "dividing God's land," even though the Bible says doing so invites "God's enmity."
Robertson added, "I would say woe to any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course."
He noted that former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated.
Robertson said God's message is, "This land belongs to me. You'd better leave it alone."
Who better leave it alone? Who is supposed to live there? Which Israel?
He's a kook. He's unhinged. His theology is, at best, not ready for baking -- half-baked would be a lightyear ahead of what he's turning out these days. Sharon is 77 and is not a poster-child of healthy eating habits, Pat. To connect this with the wrath of God regarding the land promised to Abraham is without any warrant.
Please: retire. Let someone else make Christianity look stupid. You have done your bit. Let CBN pay you an emeritus salary and just go enjoy your golden years in obscurity.
