Something remarkable happened on Pat Robertson’s daily
infomercial show, The 700 Club, on Monday. Over the sound of Robertson’s dentures clicking, his voice could be audibly heard saying something true.
This may be a first for Robertson, the televangelist whose Wikipedia page lists eight of his greatest false prophesy hits, such as the end of the world in 1982, a tsunami strike on the Pacific Northwest in 2006, and a major terror attack in the United States in 2007. Perhaps most notorious though, was his prediction that Mitt Romney would defeat Barack Obama in the 2012 election.
The segment began with a question from a Robertson fan named Mike, who noted that George W. Bush took us into Iraq with the approval of Congress but the disapproval of most other countries. “Is there hope?” Mike plaintively bleats. He goes on to ask, “How does this fit into the plans of Almighty God?” seemingly unaware that Robertson has never received a direct communication from the divine in his entire life.
Suddenly, the clouds parted, a heavenly chorus rang out and a beam of golden light enveloped Robertson, who said:

At this point, Fundamentalists all over the country put down their pens, tore the checks they were writing to Robertson out of their checkbooks, and ripped them up.
But Robertson continued, at last declaring:
[box type=”shadow”]“Fix it? No it’s too late to fix it. It’s unfixable. And those simmering animosities have been there for centuries.”[/box]
You can watch the segment here, via Raw Story. Don’t worry, it won’t make you like him or anything.
