Pat Robertson: God Responsible for Sharon’s Stroke

Pat Robertson – never one to shy away from idiotic comments says that Arieal Sharon’s stroke was ‘divine retribution. One wonders what Ronald Reagan did to make God so angry… I know I shouldn’t say this, but wouldn’t it be interesting if Pat Robertson ended up wheelchaired for the rest of his life because of a stroke.

From AFP:

US evangelical broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Ariel Sharon’s stroke was divine retribution for “dividing God’s land” of Israel, igniting his latest trademark controversy.

As the Israeli prime minister battled for life, Robertson seemed to suggest to viewers on his “700 Club” television show that Sharon was being punished for his policies in Gaza and the West Bank.


“The prophet Joel makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who, quote, ‘divide my land.’ God considers this land to be his.
“You read the Bible, he says, ‘This is my land.’ And for any prime minister of Israel who decides he’s going carve it up and give it away, God says, ‘No. This is mine.'”
