For those of you who don't knwo who Pat Robertson is, here is a very brief backround. Pat Robertson is a 75 year old TV evangelist. He is a VERY
wealthy man, which I will get into more detail on that later. He owns his very own television station too. The Christian Broadcasting Network. If
you have ever watched the 700 club, you really should read this. Over the years, he has written several books and made coutless claims of having
direct communication from God. He claims that he has the ability to heal people. He presents himself as if he is a prophet to the christian
community. When he was younger, he was in the Korean war and claims to have seen combat, though the people he served with disagree. Afterwards, he
went to yale and recieved a degree in law, and then proceeded to fail the bar exam. Then he decided to become a preacher, was ordained by the
southern baptists, but later refused a church due to his views. That is a good start.
Some claims this man has made are pretty rediculous as most christian claims, so don't be suprised. He likes to use dates, and he also likes to
write books with those dates, so that you can check them later when his predictions do not occur.
He claimed that he knew the year the tribulation would begin. That year would have been 1982. When it did not occur, he again claimed it would occur
in 1984. Again, it just did not happen. I want to point something out though. he claimed that God himself told him these things. He claimed that
God told him to usher in the end times.....to usher in personally the second coming of jesus. His TV network made specific plans for this event,
including a fund raiser. Its funny, how we can trace money these days dont you think? He claimed that god told him he would win the election for
president in 1988. Please refer to your handy dandy former presidents list and check that one, I don't think you will find him. Now these are just
a few of what amounts to probably thousands of claims. These claims came directly from god.
Financially, this guy is pretty smart. One of the wealthiest people in the world actually. I wonder how he obtained this wealth? Well, here is a
quote from his wife.
"He is not a television evangelist. He has never been an evangelist. He is a television broadcaster. He has a law degree. He's a businessman. He has
a multi-million dollar business that he started with $70. He's a good businessman."
Interesting that millions of christians listen to his words everyday, and consider him an evangelist. WHo would have known that he was nothing of the
sort. He is really just a business man. In any case, patty boy makes a lot of money off the donations that his christian broadcasting network pulls
in. In fact, he makes so much money, that he has been able to do many things, including buying diamond mines. Wow, nothing like good christian money
being put to good use. Especially considering the following. It got a little pricy at times to transport supplies and such to and from the mines.
So, being the brillian con artist that he is, pat decided to divert some planes. Operation blesing was a charity funded by donations from his
network. Christian donations. In anycase, these planes were tax exempt, as well as paid for by a charity claiming to be doing humanitarian work. He
felt they would better serve as transport planes for his dioamond mines that he bought with your christian money. A pilot said:
"My first impression when I took the job was that we'd be called Operation Blessing and we'd be doing humanitarian work. We got over there and
'Operation Blessing' was painted on the tails of the airplanes, but we were doing no humanitarian relief at all. We were just supplying the miners
and flying the dredges from Kinshasa out to Tshikapa."
This is just the surface of what this thread is going to hit on when people start to read it, but what I want to point out is this:
Millions of foolish christians support this man in one way or another. They do so by being ignorant fools. Christians.....Ignorant fools.... Are
you seeing a pattern here? They give this guy money, which he graciously takes. Why do they do this? Because they are too lazy to look into what
they are being told. They are blind followers. They are exactly what i keep getting in trouble for saying they are. It is really a shame.
This, again only scrathes the surface, and I won't get into what the bible has to say for those who make false claims in gods name. Lets just say
Pat is lucky people like me don't allow christians to act on the things there bible tells them too.
Please, ask me to prove this stuff. This is the trend of christianity. It is the conspiracy. People who are willing to believe that a flood covered
the entire earth including all of its mountains are easily fooled. So lets steal their money. Its been going on for hundreds of years.
