If the world blows up because of ISIS it is very good for Pat Robertson’s business.  When your business is predicting that the end is coming and Jesus is coming back to save good Christians, only good times are ahead.


The nation of Assyria no longer exists, but Robertson said that with ISIS taking over large portions of Iraq and Syria, it could soon be brought back to together, which means that there is an opportunity for the international community to gather together all of the Kurds in Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Turkey to serve as “the lynchpin” that could bind all of these nations together.

“Call it Assyria,” Robertson suggested, “and let them encompass current Syria and current Iraq and we would be fulfilling Bible prophecy.”

“It might well happen,” he said. “Was that prophetic or I’m just playing games?

    We would all be better off if Robertson had his own end time…

    • granpa.usthai August 28th, 2014 at 3:00 pm

      expect it sooner than he does!

    Robertson and his followers are dangerous fanatics. Anyone who looks towards the end of the world as something to be desired is seriously deranged. It is actually more frightening that we have these evangelical
    apocalyptic types in our government and military. Imagine someone who
    not only believes in the ‘end times’ but is anxious to ‘help it along’
    at the trigger of a nuclear weapon or in a position to form foreign policy.

    It is high time we got these weirdos out of the public sector completely.

      “It is high time we got these weirdos out of the public sector completely”
      Or at least tax the living sh*t out of them

      • granpa.usthai August 28th, 2014 at 3:00 pm

        if they do not begin to accept a fair share of the tax burden, then they will wind up owning the country (except for the 87% actual tangible wealth owned by the peoples government of China).

      • granpa.usthai August 28th, 2014 at 3:05 pm

        selected by GOD himself – and besides the papers they sign for each other, their PROOF is :
        they don’t actually know if they are prophesying by God’s words -or ‘just playing games’.

        WTF is JT Barnum when he’s needed the most!?!

        • bhil August 28th, 2014 at 3:11 pm

          It’s PT Barnum but I like it.

    • R.J. Carter August 28th, 2014 at 2:00 pm

      You mean like some sort of religious litmus test?

      • Carla Akins August 28th, 2014 at 2:07 pm

        I see what you did there. How about we limit the rule to those that are certain you can pray away your blindness.deafness/etc..if you are a true believer. Or, perhaps I should say, those that couldn’t pass a mental health competency test.

        • R.J. Carter August 28th, 2014 at 4:48 pm

          Will these mental health competency tests include questions about belief in God and prayer, or be geared more toward the “Tell me what the voices are saying, Ms D’Arc.”?

      • M D Reese August 28th, 2014 at 2:43 pm

        It’s a mental health issue. People who believe in the supernatural really shouldn’t be playing with real politics or weapons. Even the NRA will say (out of one side of their mouth anyway) that crazy people shouldn’t own guns.

        • R.J. Carter August 28th, 2014 at 4:47 pm

          So, basically, we end up with a government of atheists, governing on “pure reason.”

          • M D Reese August 28th, 2014 at 4:57 pm

            You make it sound as if that would be bad. Actually, atheists are just like any other humans–with the difference being that they just believe in one less god than most.

          • R.J. Carter August 29th, 2014 at 9:33 am

            Homogeneous composition of any governmental body is always bad. Diversity is where it’s at, baby!

            Plus, that whole “pure reason” sounds wonderful — I’m just thinking how well it worked out for Robespierre.

          • M D Reese August 30th, 2014 at 7:59 pm

            How’s that pure theocracy thing working out? Oh right…

    • Tammy Minton Haley August 28th, 2014 at 3:01 pm

      he can believe whatever he likes, and he may talk about it, too!

      what’s good for the goose, has to be good for the gander…see?

      what must happen, is the EDUCATION AND MOTIVATION OF THE ELECTORATE…

      we get the nation we deserve…sorry for yelling… 🙂

    “Was that prophetic or I’m just playing games?”, asks Pat. Seems like that extra large colonoscopy scope made him a bit more playful this week.

    • Dwendt44 August 28th, 2014 at 8:18 pm

      Cleaned out his thinking process I bet.

  4. William August 28th, 2014 at 1:46 pm

    Ya’ Know Pat, there are methods available to avoid all that messy end of times stuff.

    • granpa.usthai August 28th, 2014 at 2:55 pm

      oh yea, break out the grape cool-aid and show US the way!

  5. R.J. Carter August 28th, 2014 at 1:59 pm

    I was always curious about End Times people who were trying to prevent it from happening, given all the things they look forward to because of it.

    • tiredoftea August 28th, 2014 at 2:10 pm

      Cognitive dissonance is tough to control.

    once again Patrick shows himself as just another biblical charlatan who visions himself to be capable of doing God’s work in Patrick’s image for $$$.
    God will not be mocked, Patrick. As ye sow, so shall ye reap. Bring forth your warmongering followers. Sow to the wins of war and prepare to reap the whirlwinds of war – might also want to prepare your children for working the rice fields in China for a few days or so, also – for a day is like unto a thousand years and a thousand years is like unto a day.
    Only ONE person that will be able to direct biblical prophecy when he appears on the scene coming out of the ten horns – but there shall be MANY on the day of judgement who shall say Lord, Lord, did we not say and do mighty things in thy name and the Lord shall say GO TO HELL!
    It’s not nice to ‘play games for $$$’ with the Lord’s prophecies, Patrick. Especially for one who is so ‘blessed’ by the $$$ – tends to show you for who you really are.

  8. bhil August 28th, 2014 at 3:07 pm

    Which religion is more backward the ISIS version of Muslim faith or Robertson’s version of christianity? End times you silly, sad old man you missed the bus long ago.

  9. Tammy Minton Haley August 28th, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    I don’t want a person anxious for Heaven to have a finger anywhere close to any buttons, especially big, red ones…


    i DO want a person who is spiritual–not necessarily religious, but…to have some sense of the grand design…how tiny and huge humans are at the same time…the possibility of…SOMETHING more, maybe OutThere, Somewhere…i dunno…i grew up when the original Star Trek was on teevee…i was promised a flying car…therefore, my world-view might be somewhat…skewed

  10. raincheck August 28th, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    I wish he would go over there to make arrangements.Set up a meeting with the top guy… then end up on a youtube video… too harsh?

  11. Abby Normal August 28th, 2014 at 4:43 pm

    Let me think this over. Yes, it’s coming to me now. My brain is engaging. I’m starting to have a thought. Yes, here it comes – I’m thinking.

  12. VALERIE MARTIN August 28th, 2014 at 5:51 pm

    Not only is it the most DANGEROUS thing
    in the World, it may be the very thing
    that ends up destroying us all.
    If you think that’s an exaggeration,
    you’re not paying attention…………..
    There are Millions upon Millions of
    People who truly believe that we’ll all
    be better off, happier, “in a better place”
    when we’re DEAD!!!
    This doesn’t bode well for the rest of us.

    • granpa.usthai August 28th, 2014 at 7:27 pm

      only because they haven’t thought through an ‘exit’ strategy, yet. All that glutton without even one gold painted porti-john in the whole brite city?

      white republicans may think they’ll be smiling in their heaven like they do here in mere mortal life, but I don’t think stained white dresses from the back waist down are allowed.

    • Dwendt44 August 28th, 2014 at 8:15 pm

      Well christianity is a death centered religion much like the Muslim faith is so it’s not beyond the imagination that some loony nut job starts the whole ‘end times’ thing rolling one day.

  13. PunkAssPro August 28th, 2014 at 8:29 pm

    I have to laugh, HEE HAW! Those who detest religion must not understand it? They only understand how people corrupt it because that is how they view religion.

    • PunkAssPro August 28th, 2014 at 8:39 pm

      Yea, i reworded it. Just to cut down on confusion. People are stupid.

    • Elliot J. Stamler August 31st, 2014 at 3:25 pm

      So true. The insulting, vile, arrogant atheists are out in force in this column using their usual smear McCarthyite tactics against religion AND against God by holding up a political phony and religious charlatan like Robertson as representative of religion and people of faith.

  14. PunkAssPro August 28th, 2014 at 8:32 pm

    I have to laugh, HEE HAW! Those who detest religion don’t understand it, they only know how to corrupt it.

    • PunkAssPro August 28th, 2014 at 8:33 pm

      Those who understand it only know how to live it.

    • Aron August 29th, 2014 at 5:37 pm

      ‘Punk’ is definitely the right word for you.

      Troll harder.

      • PunkAssPro August 29th, 2014 at 5:41 pm

        LOL, yep, by design. For i don’t need to be asshamed of who i am. However i can control it.
