Ok well you can thank me later for stating the obvious. The smoting has begun! But serious what is wrong with this man? For being a follower of God he sure wishes alot of people harm. First says we should kill Hugo Chavez and now he is saying God has "smote" Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. You know he is serious when he starts breaking out the Old English. Perhaps he is fresh off reading some Beowulf? Smote is from Old English smtan, to smear.
I guess none of this should be a surprise given that he said former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated in 1995 for the same reason. This man is out of his mind, I recommend he be put in isolation. Here are some other gems of wisdom courtesy of Mr. Robertson.
- Feminism is a "socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
- That September 11th was caused by "pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, lesbians, the ACLU and the People for the American Way."
UPDATE: It was CNN that said "smote" not Robertson. So apologies to Pat for accusing him of reading Beowulf and spouting old english verses. His statement that Sharon's stroke was divine retribution for the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza still stands however.
