You know what I like about Pat Robertson?
He lays it out there on the line. While most of his ilk are more interested in prophesying retroactively, such as many people telling us they had visions of 9-11 before it happened (yeah, thanks for the warning Jonah) or that Katrina was judgment for gay people, Pat warns us in advance.
Plus, since America does not practice Canonical Law, he will suffer no physical repercussions (where is a good public stoning of false prophets when you need one- Hey Fox, I have a new reality show for you- think about it- each week we get prophets to make predictions, whenever 1 does not come true that person is stoned by Simon).
So he gets to make outlandish statements and wait. Eventually, according to the Law of Averages, he will be correct (even a monkey gets it right occasionally). When he is correct, he becomes even more famous and says, "I told you so." Noone remembers the 273 incorrect prophecies and he gathers even more money for his coffers. Brilliant.
Anyway, here is Pat's prediction of a tsunami in America (now, if he predicted a tsunami in America but there had not been one in SE Asia, that would be impressive).
