"There has to be some controlling authority in our society."
Pat Robertson isn’t one to let a national tragedy go by without making some sort of announcement about how it’s an act of biblical proportions.
Rather than honor the dead and wounded in Vegas, he made a sweeping commentary about who is to blame, and yesterday that blame fell on people who don’t support the president among other things.
“There is profound disrespect for our president, all across this nation they say terrible things about him,” he said on the 700 Club Monday. “It’s in the news, it’s in other places.”
The laundry list of divine finger-pointing goes on in the video (below) posted by Right Wing Watch:
“And we have taken from the American people the vision of God, the whole idea of reward and punishment, an ultimate judge of all our actions, we’ve taken that away. When there is no vision of God, the people run amok.”
Perhaps the televangelist could call the families of the identified dead below (59 are confirmed deceased) and discuss how exactly their political views ended their lives. Or how their "profound disrespect" put them in the deadly crossfire.
