A Mission for Any Friends in Virginia Beach

Surely someone must know where the breaker box is for Pat Robertson's CBN satellite dishes. You know what to do.

In case you haven't heard the latest wit and wisdom from Robertson, find it here.
NORFOLK, Va. - Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Israeli Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine punishment for "dividing God's land."

"God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program "The 700 Club." "You read the Bible and he says `This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, `No, this is mine.'"
. . .
Sharon "was dividing God's land and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU (European Union), the United Nations, or the United States of America," Robertson said.

In discussing what he said was God's insistence that Israel not be divided, Robertson also referred to the 1995 assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who had sought to achieve peace by giving land to the Palestinians. "It was a terrible thing that happened, but nevertheless he was dead," he said.

Yoi. And I'm still grieving over the coming expulsion of missionaries from Venezuela. Maybe this time he'll only heap public scorn on the name of Christ instead of causing chain political reactions.

I have some seminary friends over at VB, Ben. Maybe...
