"If we were to stop, stop all this slaughter (e.g. abortion), the judgment of God might be lifted from us. But, it's coming ladies and gentlemen. We
just have a little taste of it in terms of the financial system but it's going to get shaken to its core in the next few months, years, or however
long it takes."
I can't believe that someone would be brazen enough to go on national television and claim that the little recent stock market correction was caused
by 'God' as some kind of punishment to the nation! That's insane in itself. Then, he goes on to claim that he knows why 'God' has done it, it's part
of the judgment of 'God' for abortions in America!
If I were the 'God' of the universe that would insult me. The idea that this little blip of a correction in the stock market is significant at all is
asinine. To call it punishing a nation for supposed 'murder' is off the charts lunacy. A little stock market correction is literally nothing in the
grand scheme of things. If this doesn't prove to EVERYONE that Pat Robertson is out of his mind completely, I don't know what it would take.
But, I'm sure Pat Robertson will lose no viewers over this goofball theory. It's probably what almost all of his viewers WANT TO HEAR. So, whether it
makes no sense or whether it even proves that he's nuts is inconsequential to his audience.

I wonder if ole Pat is aware that the land of Gods chosen people, who he feels we should protect at all costs, has far more liberal abortion laws that
the most left leaning states in our union? As far as he is concerned Israel can do NO wrong yet it's far easier to get an abortion there and much
later in a pregnancy and it's all paid for by the state.
This is one of the many things that drove me away from organized religion. Stub your toe? God's pissed at you. Have an accident? God is
punishing you for [ insert something ]. Have a bad day? You're not "in the spirit" and till you "get right with God" your life will stay that way.
No matter what happens, they find some way to connect it to God and say He is punishing you. I can't even watch the video, because I know he's
making some roundabout point and connecting dots that aren't even there.
I guess to the Capitalistic Christian god, correcting the economy would be a nice punishment for something, though I find it unlikely that the
Christian god the rest of the world worships would even CARE about our economy. What's that bible passage about a rich man getting into heaven?
Matthew 19:24 "Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
That just brings me back to my point about Israel. Clearly this pissy and angry god is the OT god and not the Jesus god that you just quoted so why do
they get a free pass and 'Murica gots to suffer? C'mon Pat...what gives?!?!
I'm not sure he knows it at all. He's just got "biblical billet points" written down on a stack of 3x5 index cards, devoid of all context but that's
OK because his supporters and donors don't bother to read it either. They're barely a step up from the likes of WBC or Scientologists.
Pat Robertson lost his marbles a long time ago. I literally take nothing he says seriously.
As for God causing this financial slump, that's just dumb. Why would God care about central banking, financial speculators, and a financial system
built on interest & usury? This global financial system has nothing to do with God at all.
I don't know how these idiots get people to follow their BS. To think he was once a presidential candidate. ...He had a strong second-place finish in
the Iowa and Minnesota caucuses and in the South Dakota primary in '88. That doesn't give me much faith in the mentality of some American voters.
Just Google "Crazy Pat Robertson Quotes" and you'll get a feel for how mentally deficient this guy really is!
