He Keeps Making Hits...
I'm here to let you know that the rumors are not true. No matter what you heard any where else on the net, we here at MidwestMindset.com did not make a New Years resolution to not post.
We were just waiting for something that reminded us of the good old days... 2005
I think that I'm finally beginning to understand the mind of the great Pat Robertson. Here's the background in case you haven't been paying attention.
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has been struggling with some major health problems that culminated this week in a major stroke. While the media speculated on Sharon's current condition the hospital assured the public today that he was clinging to life after major surgery.
Of course the 700 Club had wall to wall coverage of this story and Robertson had some very interesting things to say about Sharon's situation. Robertson believes that this stroke was God's punishment for Sharon's recent actions, namely The prime ministers decision to withdraw Israeli settlers and troops from Gaza and parts of the West Bank in hopes of peace with Palestine.
Here are some of the heart warming things that Robertson had to say...
"He 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, and you'd better leave it alone,'"
What is becoming clear that Robertson doesn't just think that someone who disagrees with him is wrong, Robertson believes that all of his political opinions are held by Almighty God. Whenever someone goes against what Robertson has decided is Right he believes that God's ultimate response will be anger and pain for those who disagree with him.
Now this might not seem like news to anyone I believe that we here at MidwestMindset.com better take note because we have on occasion disagreed with Robertson. It kind of makes me scared to say that I disagree with him because you never know what will happen to me if I voice it in any way.
And isn't that the point. Control by fear.
