Pat Robertson, The man who claimed the Haitian people were paying a penance for revolting against their slave owners, and that penance was an Earthquake Concedes that he got the wrong prediction from God about the election. Really? Go back to supporting Marijuana rights. At least then you might be pushing an agenda we know you REALLY support.

This Week in God

First up from the God Machine this week is a look at TV preacher — and prominent GOP activist — Pat Robertson, who assured his followers that Republicans would win the White House and Congress in 2012. Robertson knew this with certainty, he said, because God himself told the televangelist what would happen.

This week, Robertson suggested there may have been a divine miscommunication.

For those who can’t watch clips online, Robertson conceded, “So many of us miss God. I won’t get into great detail about elections but I sure did miss it. I thought I heard from God; I thought I had heard clearly from God. What happened? “You ask God, ‘How did I miss it?’ Well, we all do and I’ve had a lot of practice.”

The next time Robertson claims to speak for God, and to receive special messages about the future directly from Heaven, the televangelist’s followers may want to keep this incident in mind.
