Pat Robertson thinks God is a two-year-old.

Always reliable for a quote to provoke jaw-dropping and forehead-slapping, Pat Robertson has come through again. Here's a snippet from yesterday's The 700 Club:

"To the good citizens of Dover, if there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God, because you just rejected him from your city.”

Yes, that is EXACTLY how the Almighty behaves, even if you could construe people using the intelligence with which God gifted us as being insulting to the Divine. What's next? Is a pox going to be called down? How medieval.

Hah! Good analogy. Pat Robertson clearly doesn't understand what Jesus is teaching. But Pat is teaching himself not to speak foolishly, a lesson we all teach ourselves.

He's already chortled over the wrath of God on New Orleans.

Pat Robertson is losing it. He does more harm than good these days.

LOL on the IEP.
