Pat Robertson Suggests the crack in the Washington Monument is a Sign from God

On the 700 Club today, 81 year old televangelist Pat Robertson weighed in on the earthquake that hit the Eastern states. In the past, he told his viewers that gay marriage will bring the Wrath of God upon America; which proves old habits are hard to break and a catastrophe is always good publicity.


In the past, Robertson also linked Hurricane Katrina and terrorist attacks to legalized abortion, so why let another earthquake slip through his radar.


The earthquake caused a four foot crack in the Washington monument and was apparently an act of God, according to Robertson.


From Right wing watch:

Robertson: Ladies and gentlemen I don’t want to get weird on this so please take it for what it’s worth. But it seems to me the Washington Monument is a symbol of America’s power, it has been the symbol of our great nation, we look at that monument and say this is one nation under God. Now there’s a crack in it, there’s a crack in it and it’s closed up. Is that a sign from the Lord? Is that something that has significance or is it just result of an earthquake? You judge, but I just want to bring that to your attention. It seems to me symbolic. When Jesus was crucified and when he died the curtain in the Temple was rent from top to bottom and there was a tear and it was extremely symbolic, is this symbolic? You judge.



I judged as per his request. No, it’s an earthquake. They happen.

    I want to make a “crack in Pat Robertson’s ass” joke, but I can’t come up with anything clever. Suffice it to say, Pat Robertson is a piece of shit.

    I think it’s a sign to the religious wrongs that they’d better stop messing with the Constitution and the Bible, or George is going to fall right on them and crush them.

  • Artor

    It’s a sign that Pat Robertson is a delusional dumbass who really needs to shut the hell up.

  • Ahab

    It’s a sign of plate techtonics, Pat. It’s not a sign that God agrees with your political leanings!
