Just Who Is Pat Robertson, anyway?

There has been a lot of talk about the “Pact with Satan” statement of Pat Robertson.  He was refering to the “reason” why Haiti just experienced the devastating earthquake last week. It’s sad when a man of God speaks in such an insensitive and distasteful way in the face of such tragedy. To most people, the comment was extremely crass and distateful, and certainly not the kind of statement a pastor should make. Does he really believe this?  If so why?  I suppose one can ponder this.
When I was in church this past Sunday, I got a bit of shocking information from the pulpit about this Reverend Pat Robertson.  It appears that he is a grand scale hypocrite.  When our Pastor told us that it’s unfortunate that Mr. Robertson made this “Pact with Satan” comment, because he, himself, is not one to talk about pacts with satan.  We were informed that Mr. Robertson was in collusion with the dictator Charles Taylor of Liberia in a gold mining venture where the dictator would get a certain percentage of the take.
It seems very strange that Pat Robertson can so easily pronounce gloom and doom and the wrath of God on others that are doing nefarious things, and even on innocents victims as those in Haiti, but have complete blinders on when it is himself.

To say the least, I’m disappointed in Pat Robertson and this strange arrangement he made with this well-known human rights violator!  Pat is supposed to be a man of God! How can you make a pact with Charles Taylor?  Supposedly, he didn’t know this about Charles Taylor and felt that alot of African countries have a dictator or two. Very interesting. It has been said in psychology circles that people tend to hate certain qualities in others that they subconsciously suppress and hate in themselves.  Maybe this is the reason for Pat’s eagerness to call forth the wrath of God on everyone.

    Makes one wonder who is his God and who is his devil? Pat Robertson a man of God? What God would that be? I am sure he and I are not serving the same God.

    When I think of hypocrites like Pat Robertson, I'm reminded of a quote by Mohandas Gandhi."I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."
