Gaza Strip 700 Club

Pat Robertson has managed to insert himself into major news event of the last 5 years by saying that Catastrophe X was a caused by divine retribution (i.e., homosexuals and feminists = 9/11; loose living and being black = Hurricane Katrina; teaching science = Dover, PA's imminent destruction, and so on). But now he's gone one step too far: he's suggested that Ariel Sharon's stroke is divine punishment for pulling out of Gaza.

From the New York Times:
"God considers this land to be his," Mr. Robertson said Thursday on his television program, "The 700 Club." "For any prime minister of Israel who decides he will carve it up and give it away, God said, 'No, this is mine, just like Pat Robertson's gold-plated jet and Swiss bank account are his, so don't let the government take it away from him because he's a fraudulent bastard.''"
Uh, Pat? The Jews are God's CHOSEN PEOPLE, biznatch, and they don't get divine retribution, they give it. Which is what they did when they laid the smack down on you and your kooky evangelical spa or whatever it is.
