Pat Robertson Explains Tornadoeson March 6, 2012 at 1:13 pm
Whenever there’s a disaster you can always count on Pat Robertson to chime in with his wisdom.
This time, after tornadoes affected parts of Ohio and Illinois, Don writes to Pat Robertson to ask, “Why did God send the tornadoes?”
In a shocking reply, Pat didn’t blame the gays, liberals, etc, and actually said that God doesn’t send tornadoes. He went on to explain that hurricanes are God’s way of taking heat out of the world, which I guess is about as scientific an explanation as we can expect from the guy.
He also went on to chastise the people for building homes where tornadoes are apt to occur and said that, even though God doesn’t send these horrible storms, if you pray hard enough, you can stop them from coming.
So, if God designed these storms as mechanisms to release heat, and they’re part of his grand design, then why would human prayer be able to stop them from happening?
Crap, there I go again trying to make sense of something Pat Robertson said.
