Have Mercy, O Lord

...He has insisted that God would turn his back on the residents of Dover, Pennsylvania, who voted out the school board members that supported intelligent design in their schools’ science classes. He has warned Orlando, Florida, to brace for earthquakes, tornadoes, and even meteor strikes as forms of chastisement for flying gay pride flags. He has called for the assassination of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez. Now he claims that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s stroke was a punishment from God for giving up land in the Gaza Strip and part of the West Bank to the Palestinians.
...Robertson explained:
“[Sharon] was dividing God’s land, and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the European Union, the United Nations, or the United States of America. God says, ‘This land belongs to me. You’d better leave it alone.’”
...A spokesperson for Robertson said that the controversy over his remarks was sparked by a liberal advocacy group that released a transcript of the quote. Call me whacky, but didn’t the controversy start because Robertson said the asinine remarks in the first place?
...Maybe Robertson is just proof that sometimes God really does make mistakes.
